Re: *~*October Check In*~*

  • I had an appointment on Monday. I'm measuring a day behind but they were able to see the hb. I couldn't see it but I'll just trust that the tech wasn't lying to me. Got tons of blood drawn and I go back in two weeks for a follow up u/s.

    However, I've been spotting and cramping off and on since the weekend so it's really making me nervous each day. More cramping and spotting this morning so I'm having a hard time keeping it together.

  • Hi girls!

    It's not really a milestone, but this is as pregnant as I was last time. I didn't find out the baby had stopped growing until later, but this was when it stopped, so I'm really excited to be feeling so nauseated and definitely pregnant today. Just hoping it continues.

    I'm sorry you're spotting and cramping, that must be really scary. I hope you continue to get positive news.

  • It's been a pretty good week. We graduated from the RE at 7 week 1 day last Friday after seeing the hb for the second time. It was 140 bpm. Just today I finally found an OB who delivers at one of the hospitals I want. We have our first appointment with them next Thursday, when we'll be 9 weeks. I think I'll finally have a due date then!

    I'm feeling tired and bloated and gassy, but not nauseated at all, which I'm grateful for. We technically passed the date when we lost our last pregnancy, though without having another u/s, it's hard to say that we're *really* more pregnant than we ever were before. I hope so.

    My RE told me I could stop worrying now, and I'm trying to. But it's hard, as you ladies know.

  • I had an appointment with my RE on Monday. He did an ultrasound and I was able to see my lil p with a heartbeat and all. He didn't tell us how fast the heart was beating but told us we were measuring right on track! I have the u/s picture as my wallpaper on my phone and look at it about 100 times a day!

    My fatigue seems to have increased this week. I can barely keep my eyes open today. I have been sleeping every chance I get at home (which is a lot) but that doesn't seem to be helping. Other than that, sore boobs, bloat, gas and gas pains are my main symptoms.

    I have an appointment with my OB on Monday and I am hoping for another ultrasound!

    I hope everyone is doing great :)

  • Hi - My EDD is October 2nd!

    I am currently 8wks 4 days, and we saw the heartbeat at 6wks and again at 7wks 4 days. My next appt is on March 1st - I can't wait!

    I have been nauseous for the last 4wks. Seriously, like around the clock! I am so thankful though, because this is the worst that I have felt out of all of my pregnancies (that sounds funny). It just makes it feel more real, you know?

  • Hello all -- I had an u/s Monday and it came after I had some strong cramping and spotting Friday and Sunday - so I was surprised and relieved to see a LO measuring on track for O date and with a HB at 120.  Have still had intermittent cramps and one episode of brown spotting yesterday afternoon -- but I am trying to take it one day at a time and chant the PgAL mantra.

    My TP checking has hit OCD proportions, though, and I have to actually psych myself up to go to the bathroom because I am afraid I'll see brown/blood/Jimmy Hoffa (or other scary things).

    My milestone is that this past Monday is point of gestation when I started bleeding...so I beat that by 2 days earlier this time- ugh.  Next milestone is next Wednesday, when I'll be 8 weeks by LMP which is when we found out our last LO was gone.

    Nest u/s is Tuesday.  Fingers crossed for a wriggling LO with a continued strong HB.

    Thinking good thoughts for all of us!!

    ETA:  I still don't have a lot of symptoms...which makes me very anxious.

  • Can I be added?  I'm bringing up the rear, with an EDD of 10/29. 

    Going on vacation for a few days next week, then another beta check when I get back.  Hopefully everything looks good and we can schedule our first appt!

  • Hi!  I just got back from the doctors office & my EDD is 10-10 now (so my ticker's a day off).  I had my screening done today, so I hope all is well.  I have a follow up US next week to watch my cysts, but everything so far looked great according to the doctors.  I'm trying to be optimistic & less of a worrier each day-but some days are harder than others.

    My symptoms are back pain & dry heaving.  I just can't stand garlic or lettuce right now-insane I know.  I was told to make sure I eat a protien with a carb at each meal to sooth my stomach. 

    Most interesting thing I learned today.....is nutra-sweet is okay but to stay away from a lot of fruit juices since they can cause gestational diabetes and a high birthweight (over 10 lbs) baby which is not a really good thing.  Not like I was planning to have a lot of either, but it was still good stuff to know.

    Thats a HUGE milestone to reach.  I know there was a distinct amount of relief when I got to (and then past) my loss gestation.  Granted we still have a long ways to go, but it feels really good to cross that line.

  • I should probably update on me as well.

    I had some spotting this past Monday which resulted in a day in the ER (to rule out ectopic).  The good news is that I got to see Baby JB on the big screen and not only is it in my ute, but its measuring on time.  The bad news is that I wasn't able to see a hb.  I was only 6w0d by my O date, so its not really a concern...but man would it have been nice.  Still working on getting my first planned u/s scheduled, but at least I know the bugger is in the right spot. 

    I'm still pretty light on the symptoms.  So light, in fact, that more often than not I don't have any and feel perfectly normal.  The nausea (still no puking, FX) has gotten more pronounced as the week has gone on and I've had some of those growth cramps overnight the last two nights (My 3am wake up call, lol). 

    Alright, I'm off to update the list.  BTW, please let me know if I missed any angels.  I try and keep up with the list...but its possible I missed a post.  Can't tell you how much I hope we're all here to stay. 

    ETA: I won't be surprised in the least if when I get in for a scheduled u/s my EDD gets changed.  The one in my ticker is based on my LMP, but I know I O'd late and the fact that the unplanned u/s backed that up makes me think I'll be bumped to 10/18ish eventually.

  • Things are going okay with me.  I don't really have too many symptoms yet which is kind of a drag.  Sometimes I'll feel like I'm a little nauseous but then it goes away when I eat, so it's certainly not what I would call m/s.  My boobs somewhat hurt but only if I lean on then or press on them.  I'm feeling exhaused today, so maybe the symptoms will kick in soon.  On Tuesday I have my first appointment which will include an ultrasound.  I'll be right at 6 weeks, so I know there's a chance I might see a hb but there's also a good chance I won't.  Oh how I would love to see a little flicker...

  • This week has been full of ups and downs for me.  Over the weekend, I had a lot of cramps (more than mild).  They lasted for 3 days.  I had brown spotting again yesterday.  After going through all this, I asked my OB to give me prescription for another u/s.  My 7w6d u/s will be on monday of next week and have everything crossed for that. 

    The good news is that, I have a lot of PG symtoms.  My boobs are constantly sore now, I pee a lot, I have lot of nausea, and tired all the time. I started taking naps right after work because I was falling sleep at 7pm.

  • Hi!  I would like to be added.  My EDD is 10/21.

    I'm officially more pregnant than I've ever been, which isn't saying a lot, but I'll take it!  Anxiously awaiting my first appointment on 3/9.

    M/S is definitely making itself known.  It should keep things interesting when I'm out of town, training clients next week.

    Hope everyone is having a great week!

  • Hey girls! My first OB appointment is tomorrow. I have a new OB since we've moved since having DS. It's been a hastle to get anyone to acknowledge my history of ectopic since I'm not yet a patient. Very frustrating. I'm feeling kinda awful. Worse than I did with DS at this time. Exhausted, nauseated, sore nips. Yuck. But hopefully that just means this baby is getting happy in my uterus!

  • Can you add me to the list?  My due date is now officially 10/5.  I graduated from the RE this week and saw my midwife the next day. She almost left my date at 10/11 but since it was only 1 day shy of a week and she could tell it would make me feel better she went with it.

    So far so good. I got my scripts for a MFM consult, genetic counseling, and found out my NT scan will be at MFM as well. I wasn't expecting that at all. I would have been fine not being back in that office ever, but that's not going happen. I have to start making appointments asap.

  • Hi. Mostly quiet here. I have only minor nausea in the afternoons - made worse when I'm on the bus going home. Exhaustion is setting in and I've had to cut back my work out, though I have started a Saturday prenatal yoga class which is great. Mostly I'm just hungry which I hate because I'm already at my peak weight. Looking forward to my first u/s on Tuesday.

  • Hi, My edd is 10/21/11, ms, which I didn't have with the other two, but today I've been really crampy and had intestinal issues(kinda scared) my betas were 208 @13dpo and 512 at 15dpo, highest ever and am on progesterone and baby asprin.  Everything looked normal at my last apt, and March 1st we go in for first u/s, I've never gotten to hear a heartbeat before, I'm scared and excited, just wish my tummy felt better.  Thanks for being here, It's been great to have the extra support.

  • I'm feeling pretty crummy. I'm nausea's in the morning but I have Zofran so I take that when I get up. I'm bloated, and my stomach hurts quite a lot after I eat.

    I found out today that I won't even get my first ultrasound until I'm ten weeks and I'm very upset. I at least want to know there's a heartbeat so I can stop worrying.

    Lilypie First Birthday tickers
  • sounds like everyone is doing okay and making it day by day.  i can't wait till we all reach the point where we can stop worrying about seeing the heartbeat (although i'm sure new worries will take its place)

    today we had our first u/s--baby measured 6w 2 days, and there was the tiniest flicker of a heartbeat--the dr assured us that it probably only started beating a few days ago, so that was why it was so light and hard to see.  but it was definitely there! i also got the ok (like i needed it), to call the perinatologist from our d & e b/c he told me that when i became pregnant again to call him, and we could see him for weekly visits and he would consult.  yay!!!!!  so i'm waiting for him to return my call-he was with a patient when i called.

    as far as symptoms go, i've been feeling blah, with some nausea, and food aversions are kicking in (no sausage last night, i'm going to bet no bbq ribs tonight, i'm gagging at the thought of it).  my boobs still don't hurt, but when i talked to my aunt last night (a former ob) she assured me that since they technically never went back to their normal size after the loss, there's a chance they don't need to stretch back out.  and i'm still exhausted!

    so, onto enjoy the fact that i am pregnant today, and i love my baby!

    I had my first u/s this week and baby had a heartbeat.  I have 2 more appointments next Tuesday and we will see what the next step is going to be then.  I thought I wasn't going to have any symptoms besides being tired this time, but the nausea has hit again.
