Re: Group 1 (July 1-7) Check In - w/o 11/25

  • EDD/weeks+days: 7/5 ; 8w1d

    Team Finding Out/Pink/Blue/Green: Blue

    Baby is the size of a(n): pygmy seahorse

    Upcoming appointments: US on 12/9... I'm assuming they won't pull me in for an appt for the spotting over the weekend but they might.

    How are you feeling? nauseous.... all. the. time. But, glad to still be feeling crummy b/c it likely means everything is fine after this weekend.

    Raves/Rants: Rave... went out for my bday this weekend. We went to dinner with a group and then 6 of us did an escape room together. We did SO well! But we're all a little disappointed that we went over by 2 mins so, technically, we didn't escape. Whomp whomp!

    GTKY: What are you shopping for this Black Friday/Cyber Monday, if anything? I think we'll probably get a new TV for the media room. The one in there is pretty old and starting to show signs of aging. I kinda want to spend a decent amount to get a really good one since we use that TV the most. 
    Also, I want to look at a new washer and dryer. Ours are sooooo old and definitely would have been replaced by now if DH wasn't a champ at fixing alllll the things. I want something nice here too b/c I feel like I'm always doing laundry. We'll see on that though. DH swears the ones we have are fine lol

  • EDD/weeks+days: July 3 (or 2 or 1... Dating US today will hopefully confirm!) / 8 weeks + 3 days

    Team Finding Out/Pink/Blue/Green: Finding out!

    Baby is the size of a(n): penny

    Upcoming appointments: Dating ultrasound this afternoon 🤞, next prenatal with GP on December 19

    How are you feeling? Good, maybe some fatigue? I can't tell, and sensitive breasts since 9 DPO. Anxious to find out that all is well in there.

    Raves/Rants: I don't want to tell people I'm pregnant yet but social pressure to drink alcohol is stressing me out so much because everytime I hang out with people I have to pre-think of a plan or explanation for not drinking...

    Questions: None as of now

    GTKY: What are you shopping for this Black Friday/Cyber Monday, if anything? Don't think I'll buy anything!

  • @mimser good luck at your appt today!

    For drinking, if I couldn't pre-make a NA mimosa to bring with me, I would always just tell peopleI tied one on the night before and don't feel like drinking that day/night. Or, just get a glass of wine and hold it/sip on it very slowly (or pretend sip) throughout the night (depending on your feelings on that, it may not be an option for you).

  • EDD/weeks+days: 7+5 

    Team Finding Out/Pink/Blue/Green: team green this time

    Baby is the size of a(n): earbud

    Upcoming appointments: tomorrow for OB intake and US Wednesday with RE. I had some spotting since my last US and I’m terrified because this is about the time we lost our last pregnancy (but didn’t find out until week 12). 

    How are you feeling? Nauseous and super tired of these progesterone injections. 

    Raves/Rants: not much over here. 

    Questions: nope. 

    GTKY: What are you shopping for this Black Friday/Cyber Monday, if anything? Nothing this year; normally my mom and sister and I go out, but we decided to not travel home so it’s just us this year!

  • Lurking from Group 2

    @mimser have you tried any of the non-alcoholic wines/beers? They’re not wonderful but they do support the lie. Otherwise, I just tend to pour a half glass and sip and fake sip all night. 
    blaf322mimser
  • Thanks @blaf322 and @rachelredhead, I think I'll try the fake sipping at my work Christmas dinner. So far with one group of friend I've just told them I'm not drinking very much anymore in preparation for pregnancy, this week end I went out and told the waiter to get me everything Virgin... so much stress when we should just be allowed to exercise our right not To drink without any questions! I'm going be extra sensitive to that in the future
  • @footdrbritt solidarity on the PIO. I'm allergic to the oil so it's a constant battle to fight off the rxn too. 3 more weeks!

    footdrbritt
  • @blaf322 ugh that’s awful. My butt is so freaking sore. 
    blaf322
  • @footdrbritt Are you using your hips as injection sites too? Having 4 sites helps quite a bit! 

  • @blaf322 I was but Unfortunately I’m doing them mostly by myself at work so I’m really only good at sticking myself in the same place. When I get my nurses to do it, they’re amazing and it doesn’t even hurt....just 1 more week and I’ll be free. 
    blaf322
  • @footdrbritt Well, color me impressed! I'd have to go in my thigh if I had to do them on my own... I could maaaaaybe get my hip on my own. But not my butt!
    Hang in there mama! One week is totally doable!

    Upcoming appointments:
    December 12 for US. Hate that my doctor likes waiting until 10 weeks...
    How are you feeling? 
    Fine. Some times I have sore breasts and am tired, but no morning sickness. Which has me concerned 
    Raves/Rants: 
    Rant about how we used to have the whole week off for Thanksgiving. I still have two days with students 
    Questions:
    Should I be concerned I do not have major symptoms? I asked my OB and she said bloodwork is great

  • @blaf322 I’m so glad you are feeling crappy. Honestly, I only get waves of nausea, and I have times I wish I would have more. I feel so bad that people have to feel crappy, but I want the reassurance. FX everything stays fine for you. 

    @mimser. There are some easy mocktails you can have, like soda and cranberry. You just have to make sure to order it away from people. When I tried to hide it, DH would just switch cups with me, and made it look like I was drinking. 

    @footdrbritt. Fx all is well with you and babe. 

     @bluguitarhannah I’m sorry you felt so crappy over the weekend. 

    @mama_of_two_huskies I don’t have many symptoms and with my son, other than being exhausted all the time, I had nothing. Some people just don’t have many.

  • @mama_of_two_huskies if your doc says you’re good, I’d go with that.

    @littlebug2010 DH said that after everything that happened over the weekend... I just feel so exhausted by it, I can’t be happy about it lol... but I totally get what you’re saying

    Baby is the size of a(n):raspberry

    Upcoming appointments: we had our last RE appointment today, and first OB appointment next Tuesday. Feels weird to be leaving our clinic- hope I like the people at the next one. 

    How are you feeling? still lots of nausea- think I’m at least getting used to it though, and finding high protein snacks I can stomach seems to help. Yay for hummus and cliff bars. 

    Raves/Rants: Not which which this is, but just announced to my family, and feeling some survivors guilt thinking of my relatives we know are having trouble. Hope I didn’t cause too much pain, but tried to let people know in a compassionate way. 

    Questions: a little worried my RE is having me go off the progesterone supplements (and estace) today. Seems a little earlier than some of you who are doing PIOs, but I guess everyones doc has a different way of doing things? Or maybe a difference between PIOs and suppositories. Should probably just be grateful it's done!

    also you ladies are such badasses for getting through those injections! Cheering you on from the sidelines over here @footdrbritt @blaf322 

    GTKY: What are you shopping for this Black Friday/Cyber Monday- Hmm... maybe some little speakers for our bedroom. Just re-did the room but still needs some decoration, finishing touches.
  • EDD/weeks+days: July 3rd / 8weeks and 4 days

    Baby is the size of a(n): penny 

    Upcoming appointments:
    we do have an genetic ultrasound scheduled for December 20th. But my husband thinks it will be a waste of money and time. To which I can agree. I'm just nosy and like to peek a boo at the baby. So we'll see. 

    How are you feeling? 
    Nauseated. Vivid dreams. Post nasal drip that makes me gag and spit A LOT! terrible taste in my mouth. Bloating is starting to coming back. Irritable sometimes ready to be left in my bed until I'm ready to grey the day started. Lazy and I can't stand it. Lol I laugh because looking at this I'd say I'm crazy. 

    Raves/Rants: 
    I think I ranted a bit in the "how are you feeling box" lol

    Questions: 

    GTKY: What are you shopping for this Black Friday/Cyber Monday, if anything? Just going to see if a roller coaster for my toddler will be on sale. Maybe a new laptop. And SUV since we're about to be a family of 6.
    blaf322
  • @randomname_generator I actually think that about those of you doing the suppositories. I had to do 3 a day for a few days and haaaaated it! That's why, when they gave me the option, I went with the injections b/c I couldn't imagine that mess all the time! Regarding stopping so early, I'll be honest, it would make me nervous too. But your RE gets judged on successful pregnancies. They wouldn't stop you that early if they didn't think it was okay.

    @k_shaunte I kinda want one of those roller coaster things for DD too. I'll need to see if DH is on board. Let me know if you find one on sale! 

  • *TW*

    Went in today, and there was no heartbeat. I’m crushed. 3 losses this year and 4 in total. I have no idea how I’m supposed to move on from this. Thanks for all the support. Happy and healthy pregnancy to you all.

    Unfortunately, we didn't get good news at our ultrasound on Monday at 8+3, it's a blighted ovum...At this point I just want to get it over with and move on. It's my second loss in a row (chemical in August), so I'm a bit worrried for the future although trying to take it one step at a time while processing this.

    Status quo after appointment with GP on Wednesday. Doctor asked to control ultrasound in a week to exclude wrong dates and then come see her again. I don't see what black magic would put me at such an early pregnancy but hey, at least we will know for sure. So 2nd ultrasound is Monday and appointment with GP is Wednesday. If blighted ovum is confirmed I will be seen in gynecology. She didn't seem overly concerned for the future at this point but we will see about that next week. In the meantime, I am preparing myself for the worse and got myself some maxi pads.

    I wonder what my doctor will suggest we do. I feel like there are only bad options (waiting it out, medication or surgery-D&C). 

    This journey being so hard, from the bottom of my heart I wish you all a healthy pregnancy ❤
