Pregnancy Chatter & Questions 8.29

Happy Monday everyone. To get the ball rolling... How many HPTs have you taken? Are you one BFP and that's it, or have you taken several just to confirm?

I still have two more tests that I will take prior to my first appointment (mostly to ease my PGAL brain).

Re: Pregnancy Chatter & Questions 8.29

  • I took two more after my first BFP. It eased my mind to see the line get darker!

  • I took 6 tests in total. Lol
    3 at 9dpo to be sure, one the next day to make sure I wasn't dreaming and then two more on Saturday when I had some light implantation spotting because it sent my PGAL anxiety through the damn roof. Safe to say I'm definitely pregnant! It definitely eased my mind to see those lines on Saturday be so much darker than Wednesday

  • I took 1 test. The line seemed darker than the control line so I figured there is no way I was not pregnant. Plus, this is my third child so I know what it feels like being pregnant. And man do I feel it!

  • I took one test. I've never been pregnant before but I had some sure fire signs. I also am able to do a walk-in blood test so I had that to confirm.

  • I only took one test. I'm with @SaVi925, this is my third pregnancy, so I noticed all the signs. This pregnancy is already completely different from my other two and I feel like the symptoms have intensified over the past two days.
    SaVi925
  • @avacek1 I've heard the third pregnancy can be really rough. My nausea has increased significantly just overnight! Unreal 






  • @SaVi925 YES! I woke up this morning and was hit with extreme nausea, low grade fever and am just exhausted. My husband left to go offshore today and will be gone for two weeks. I'm taking it hour by hour. Lol
  • I've taken a ton! I have a bunch on Wondfos, so I keep checking to make sure the line is getting darker by the day. It is and my nausea is out of control. I know I'm pregnant, but since I've been trying for so long and had a chemical pregnancy I'll probably keep testing till I see my OB on Thursday

  • I took one, the line was pretty dark! I have the exact same symptoms so far as my first pregnancy! 

    I did end up w a c section for my first and sometimes feel twinges around my scar though!

    I have taken like 6! Two were negative, tested too early. Three days later I tested and it was a faint positive. So I took a digital the next day. And the following week, I took the other digital and regular stick test. It's so hard to wait for that first appointment! I feel like peeing on one every week til then. I have one more left and I probably will use it too.

  • @mia1116 and @mborn24 So glad to hear someone else has peed on every stick in sight! Lol

  • I have a whole bunch of Wondfos I plan on peeing on. I hope to see them get darker each time. I already took a second since my BFP this weekend and it's darker. It makes me feel like I'm doing something.


    When is everyone's first doctor's appointment? (date and how many weeks)





    mia1116MrsFox2008
  • My appointment is September 21 at 8 weeks

  • My appt is today at 4-15! Had to move it up because I had no one to watch DS later this week. Stupid holiday weekend getting in the way of my dr appt, lol

  • My first appointment is September 20th. I'll be 7 weeks 5 days. I'm guessing they will also send me for a dating ultrasound since I had a longer cycle and they still went off of LMP to set my appointment.

  • I am OB official!  First ultrasound booked for 9/12. She thinks I'm having a girl based on how sick I am. She put EDD at 5/8 based on last period. I'm still holding on the 5/6 based on ovulation. Ultrasound will tell us exactly.

  • Where I'm from they won't see you until 12 weeks! I'm not booked until Oct 12! You guys are lucky 
  • My dr doesn't like seeing patients until 9-12 either but because of our loss this year they're fitting us in at 8 weeks. I still feel like that's forever away! It's sept 22nd at exactly 8 weeks.
  • Mine is September 29th, I had to take a half day and I am hoping my husband can make it. It feels so far away... 
  • Made the appointment with my midwife today! September 26th can not come soon enough!!! 

    On a side note, my MIL will be here visiting and I told her about my appointment. She says, oh how exciting, I better be coming with you! I laughed and almost choked on my dinner. I pretended I didn't hear her! Ummm, no I want my husband at the first appointment.. Not my MIL. You crazy? 






    mia1116
  • My first appointment is tonight! This my regular gynecologist so I already know I love her but very excited for this!

  • I took 3, two before my period was due and one the day after it was supposed to come just to rule out CP. There really is no point in testing after that because once the HCG hormone is present in the body,  a test will always be positive unless there is a very obvious change in the pregnancy.

  • I elected to not see the doctor until 12 weeks. My loss in April they saw me so much so early. I felt like having levels checked and other things just added to immense stress. I didn't want an internal so I made my own appt at 12 weeks, which is October 18.

    I have a package deal (photography) with a local elective ultrasound place. She said she'll do an external next week and any time I want one for peace of mind until my appointment. So I'll have her check and make sure all is well (she did diagnostic ultrasound for 20 years at the big clinic in our area) and she is the one that saw me when I just had a feeling the baby in April was gone. My MD wouldn't see me, but she confirmed my suspicions. I'm trying to decide if I want to go to see her next week at 6 weeks or if I should just wait until 8.

  • @Klee_NC from my son, I believe the 6 week us was an internal one. I'm not sure if they can see anything at 6 weeks from the external.

  • Her equipment is really high tech. She said she can see as early as 5 weeks on an external. So we are going to give it a try. She said coming with a full bladder helps.

  • @SaVi925 umm...does your MIL regularly invite herself to very personal occasions?

  • I had a confirmation appt on Monday and have my first u/s scheduled for 9/19, then my first visit with the actual ob isn't until 12 wks. They're also sending me to a perinatologist because apparently that is their protocol for anyone over 35. I have to do an early GTT at 11wks because of my weight (never lost the "baby weight" from DD and then stress from 2IF sent me in to an eating tailspin). I just pray I don't have m/s at that point because the idea of drinking that drink if I'm already queasy is not appealing in the least.

  • @Stormy61 She is a very over powering MIL. Loves pushing buttons and over stepping boundaries as often as she can. The worst part is when I told my husband, he didn't see anything wrong with it. He is the biggest mamas boy and it drives me crazy how often he sides with her over me. I will not be taking her to the appointment. 






  • I had just ordered a whole box of Wondfos a couple weeks ago, so I figure I may as well use them! :) I took my first test on Monday and then I took one yesterday and this morning as well. My first one at 10DPO was a little light so it was exciting to see it darken over the next two days.

    Although I got pregnant on a natural cycle, I've been a patient of an RE for the past year and a half, so I'm not sure when I'll be "released" to a regular OBGYN clinic. I had my first Beta yesterday and the 2nd will be tomorrow. I believe the nurse said the 3rd one would be next week and then I don't know what happens after that yet. I have read that most REs keep with weekly monitoring until 10 weeks and then they release you.
