    Hello ladies! *waves*  @leilac looks like we are date twins :)

    How far along are you? 4+3

    How are you doing? Pretty good. I find that I am a mixture of emotions. We were ecstatic that we got pregnant again as soon as we started NTNP after our loss, but it was a bit of a shock as we weren't actively trying again yet, but of course super thankful. I feel nervous, but also just keep telling myself that whatever will be, will be and I can't control it, and that in a weird way makes me feel better. Just all fingers and toes crossed this baby sticks. Also really hoping to tell family as an xmas present


    When is your next appointment? 12/5! It can't come fast enough!

    Rant/Rave/Positive Vibes: Rave: super happy and just trying to be positive! Rant: I am going to kill my coworker today

    GTKY: What's your all-time ride-or-die favorite TV show? o0o0o probably Gilmore Girls - who's ready for 11/25??

    Sorry your doctor's office is being conflicting... I know it must be scary because your symptoms feel like the ones before you m/c. Hang in there.

    Need a dating ultrasound but either June 28 or July 4.  I ovulated late according to LH surge.

    How are you doing? 
    I'm doing a little better - had my first appointment today and my midwife gave me a sneak peak ultrasound - saw a little gummy bear in there and a flickering for the heartbeat.  Still in the 'this is not real mental space'.  Trying to get out of there though.

    When is your next appointment? 
    Next Thursday I will have my real ultrasound and next appointment with the midwife is Dec 4.

    Rant/Rave/Positive Vibes:
    DS1 won't sleep through the night and still wants to nurse continuously.  Like WTF.

    Hang in there @CAdreamin13. Please update us <3 I do live in CA which is why I asked.

    I'm waiting impatiently for my latest HCG blood draw results - tested 90 mins ago and hope my OB emails me before the end of the day with results. I have a ton of work I need to be doing but am not doing because Im so anxious...

    I wish I had some extra testing. Waiting until the first 8 week appointment for anything is so hard. Seems my OB isn't too concerned if you only had one m/c, which on the one hand makes me feel better, but just so anxious

    How are you doing? I'm ok. I have a lot on my plate right now so there isn't much time to stress or be happy about this pregnancy. If it wasn't for the all day nausea I'd probably forget I was pregnant. Thankfully all the craziness will be over in a week and I can actually focus on this little one. 

    When is your next appointment? -November 23rd. I'm happy that DH will actually be able to make it this time. 

    Rant/Rave/Positive Vibes: insomnia blows!

    Alright, I just keep telling myself that today I am pregnant. Wishing for symptoms for some reassurance. 

    When is your next appointment?
    December 5th. 8w

    Rant/Rave/Positive Vibes:
    I just wish my appointment was closer. H isn't really wanting to talk about this pregnancy so he doesn't get his hopes up like last time. I think we both just need to hear the heartbeat to be excited. But, right now I'm pregnant and I'm trying to let that me enough.

    HI everyone!  I got my BFP this morning putting me with a Edd of July 21.  I was part of the Oct 2015 BMB and ended up with a beautiful boy who just turned 1 Oct 29.  We were excited to find out we were pregnant with # 2 in August but only made it to 6 weeks.  

    How far along are you? 
    3w4d

    How are you doing?
    I am doing my best to be excited but am terrified.   I'm already racking my brain thinking of the stuff I have done wrong ( sat in the hot tub yesterday, missed a prenatal vitamin etc) but there is still a part of me that is over the moon.  I am so hopeful for this pregnancy.

    When is your next appointment?
    I am planning on calling my OBs office today to try to get in next week.  I am on holidays around that 6 week mark and really want to have my betas checked before we go.

    Rant/Rave/Positive Vibes:
    I am just really happy to be here... i am doing my best to not be scared and make sure this baby knows nothing but love!

    GTKY: What's your all-time ride-or-die favorite TV show?
    Greys Anatomy... love it!

    First time posting here? Introduce yourself!  Hello, I received my BFP last Friday with an estimated due date of 7/5/2017.  I had blood work yesterday for HCG with results over 7000, which I am really happy with because this past summer I miscarriage.  So I was a little nervous, I am blessed thought with a DD at 4yr and DS at 1.5 yr. Next Tuesday I go in for an ultrasound and appt. 

    How far along are you? 5 weeks, but tomorrow will be 6 weeks.  

    How are you doing?  So far so good, especially with the HCG numbers so here is hoping it keeps going well.  

    When is your next appointment? Next Tuesday for ultrasound and OB appt.  

    Rant/Rave/Positive Vibes: Nervous this weekend but happier now with my results.

    @leilac sending all the good vibes! Progesterone can fluctuate so that's likely why they want to check in again tomorrow and see what that number is. Either way hopefully you can get a supplement even if just for peace of mind! Keep us posted. Thinking of you.

    This is #2 after a MC this summer. Have DD #1 who is 2.
    How far along are you?
    Just 4w.
    How are you doing?
    Nervous, but happy to have some symptoms to let me know it still seems to be going ok.
    When is your next appointment?
    12/9 so far, but the time will pass.
    Rant/Rave/Positive Vibes:
    Glad for the exhaustion to have set in....asleep by 10 and that is a struggle to make it that far. Not looking forward to having to tell people at Thanksgiving due to not drinking. DH and I want to keep it to ourselves, especially as the MC. Hoping that everyone stays the whole 9!!

    How are you doing?
    could be better. I am going from worry to forgetting I'm even pregnant. I suppose it's a defense mechanism in case I get bad news. If we continue to get good news I hope I can bond w baby while pregnant. I worry a lot about that. 

    When is your next appointment? 
    Had another beta this morning. Anxiously awaiting results.

    Rant/Rave/Positive Vibes:  
    work is my rant. I'm so miserable there and have been calling in sick a lot. 

    GTKY: What's your all-time ride-or-die favorite TV show?  Battlestar Galactica.
    I need to rewatch the whole series I think ;)

  • Options
    @MrsN092714 I am so glad you switched doctors too!  That sounds like a big failure on the part of your family doctor.  This is something that would have been covered immediately as part of the initial routine screening at an OB or midwife practice.  How come the breech position was undiagnosed?  Were you seeing the family doctor at that time too?  That is a big red flag.   Or was it a last minute flip?  I hope this is a sticky baby for you and that you get the VBAC.
  • Options
    @caribbeanmama I couldn't be much happier with the switch myself.  It felt good to go into an office where my concerns were heard and addressed.  I am still with the same OB that missed the breech position and am still happy to be there.  My 20 week ultrasound DS was heads down and although I can look back and realize exactly when he flipped (28 weeks) my dr was definitely not the only person that made the mistake.  Throughout the last 12 weeks of my pregnancy I had 3 Drs and countless nurses feel and tell me he was head down.  His little butt was wedged right in there and was sitting with his back facing forward so as much as i hate that it went undiagnosed, I don't blame him for it.  I will definitely be requesting a third tri ultrasound this time though!
