Hi, new to this board. Thought I would do a little intro before I check-in. My name is Natalie and I am a 36 year old Labor and Delivery Nurse. I was diagnosed with PCOS when I was 23 and have been trying to conceive since then. My ex-husband and I had tried clomid for months and months and IVF with no success. **TW**I got pregnant out of the blue 5 years ago but miscarried at 8W5D. Marriage ended a year or so ago and now I am with my amazing fiancee. Due to my age we knew we needed to get the ball rolling so I went to a new OB/GYN because I moved out of state and she started me on Femara in July with no real hopes that a pill that cost me $6.05 a month would really work but knew I needed to start somewhere. I have a 10 year old son that I adopted from foster care when he was an infant.
Got a BFP on 10/4!!!! Complete shock. I am due June 10th. I have taken about 15 HPT since then because I am just in shock. Doctor did beta HCG and they are increasing like they should. I have my first ultrasound on October 27th and my first OB appt on November 1st.
1. How far along are you and what is your EDD? I will be 7 weeks tomorrow (10/22), my EDD is June 10th.
2. Which oh-so-lovely pregnancy symptoms are you having? Breast tenderness, gas/bloating, food aversions, some nausea/dry heaving, cravings
3. When is your next appointment? First US on October 27th and first OB appt. November 1st
4. Anything else you'd like to share? I am just so nervous, looking forward to getting to know you ladies!!
