Milestone and PGAL Brain (salsawifey) — The Bump
Pregnant after a Loss

Milestone and PGAL Brain (salsawifey)

Today marks 6 weeks, 4 days. I'm officially past my previous losses.  I started out this pregnancy feeling very confident that everything is okay but now my PGAL brain has kicked in.  Please help me out.

So, here is where my brain is. I'm on Pregesterone Supposities twice a day, I have sore boobs and sore nipples, some cramping that is usually followed by gas and then disappears, I get hungry but never really full, my nasel passages and my eyes are drier than normal (I have Sjogrens Syndrome), I'm more tired at night than normal and I'm bloated at night... all of which I can explain away by environmental or side effects of Progesterone. I'm worried because I can't feel a bump. I know... it's very early but I feel like I should feel a difference when I lie flat on my back. I just want a ute-cam so I can see if there is a baby growing in there. My first appt isn't until Feb 17. I talked to my nurse who I feel gave me some false hope by saying that if my pregnancy test was still positive then I'm still pregnant. I know she was just trying to reassure me.

So ladies that are around 6ish weeks, be honest, can you feel any bump yet?  Share your symptoms.

  • I definitely didn't feel a bump that early. This is my second baby, and I was thinking I'd show sooner and be able to feel my uterus pop out of the pelvis sooner, but honestly, this has been less obvious and taken longer to pop out than with DS. Also, I was on progesterone during first tri with this one as well, and honestly, I just felt really tired and my boobs were sore and that was absolutely IT. It really messed with me. I kept seeing others post about feeling their uterus around 9-10 weeks and I still couldn't. So I think it's still a little too early.

  • Thanks ladies... I know how stupid it sounds, especially when I've had 2 rainbows already. My PGAL brain throws all knowledge and common sense out the window sometimes. I sound like a BOTB poster!

    No beta's for me. I used the Clearblue Advanced though and it was accurate with where I was in pregnancy. I know it's not the same as beta's but it made me feel better.

  • I am 13 weeks and still can't really feel a bump. Maybe, kinda, sorta. (I am tall, so I think I have a little extra room anyway.)

    It's early! PGaL brain is the worst, but it helps to repeat some mantras to yourself. One of my current ones is "There's no reason why I can't have a healthy baby when so many healthy babies are born every day."
