    How are you feeling? 
    Just ok. I thought I was getting over 1st tri nausea but it and MS came back this weekend. I have a hard time finding food that sounds good. Blah. 

    I also went and got fitted for new bras the other day. The one I was wearing was 3 sizes too small. I can't express how much more comfortable I am!

    Any recent / upcoming appointments? 
    NT scheduled in two weeks

    How are you feeling?  Tired- nausea hit big time this week.  I also feel like I am coming down with a cold. 
    Any recent / upcoming appointments?  Had an appt today.  At our appt last week the gestational sac was measuring a week behind the baby.  This week it’s still a week behind but it grew appropriately so RE isn’t worried.  HB was 167
    Thoughts/Concerns? Questions:  just always concerned something will go wrong.

  • **lurking**
    @rozpre ; welcome!  I love Mass, too, been a minute since I've been up there, tho... GL on Tuesday!  You must be graduating from the RE soon, no?

    @agaun ; I had very few symptoms in the beginning, either.  The only thing I even noticed was feeling winded going up and down the steps with the laundry!  And I just thought I must be getting out of shape; took me a second to put two and two together. Lol  Not feeling sick is totally okay!  Fx for a completely new and happy journey this time around! ;)

    @bpietronicco ; How are you feeling? Did you manage to keep that cold at bay?

    @justharrison how did your apt go on the 4th?  Oof, I just realised, maybe there's a more current checkin thread going...  :#

    @madasm0530 ; ooh, yas to new bras!  Once I had well-fitting bras, plus bra extenders, I was able to use those to get through the entire pregnancy!

    @ellyahmedali ; how cool!  Have you been in Egypt long? I have a friend I met on here once upon a time who is Canadian and lived in Egypt for a time, as well.  Small world.  Are you teaching?

  • @BusinessWife where are you located? I love mass ❤️ Yes I’m actually going to my regular OBGYN starting Tuesday. So nervous! I want the complete care of the Ivf crew ! 

    @ellyahmedali I’d love to visit Egypt! Hope you are enjoying!
    BusinessWife
  • @BusinessWife I was sick for a whole week but think I am pretty much over it thank goodness- just a little bit of lingering chest congestion.   

    First appt with my OB Tuesday.  Had some ever so slight brown spotting today so super nervous about that.  OB said I could come in for an u/s before my appt.  trying to rest 



    BusinessWife
  • @BusinessWife thank you. We are very excited as we were waiting for AF so we could start IVF and boom. First thought maybe cyst or something worse cause I ever ever do ovulate like ever. But here we are. 
    BusinessWife
  • @BusinessWife my past two appointments have been okay. I have two small SCH (one has which is almost gone). Last week the GS measured 4 days behind so i have been anxious for my appt this thursday to see of it has caught or not. 

    BusinessWife
  • @justharrison I just got diagnosed with an SCH today. Our gestational sac has been behind as well but growing appropriately. RE didn’t seem considered after seeing appropriate growth.  

    Fingers crossed for you that everything is alright.  



    BusinessWife
  • @bpietronicco im thinking my 2nd SCH has healed or is almost healed as im on my second day of no spotting whatsoever. Hopefully yours resolves itself too!
