Super nervous...(vent & BFP mentioned) — The Bump
TTC after 35

Super nervous...(vent & BFP mentioned)

I just feel so stupid that I didn't have an OB waiting in the background to give me betas so I can know how things are progressing in my body. I've retested each day except today, because I'm feeling such strong blood rush type symptoms, fatigue and heavy breasts, the lines look great, but I'm a total wreck! I'm sure I drove the five different doctors I called today crazy with so many questions. In the end I chose one, cancelled my annual exam and have the appt Weds morning for blood work and the whole work up. I don't know how to know if everything is ok. Sigh. 

Thanks for listening, and for any kind comments...

  • Well congrats on the BFP!  There's no way to know if everything is OK, but chances are everything is just fine.  For me personally, with my pregnancy with DD (which occurred a few months after a miscarriage), I found it easiest to avoid the doctor and blood testing for a while.  I didn't even go in for the confirmation until 8 weeks.  I figured going in earlier wouldn't change anything, and avoiding all the poking and prodding helped me to stress less about it.  Everyone is different though, so do what you need to do to relax.  Try to enjoy the fact that you are pregnant right now!  Good luck!

  • That was my thought too, but the OB office was pretty adamant about getting my levels checked, so I guess that would be a nice reassurance. I've been working hard on being healthy.

    Thank you!

  • Good Luck! I was on the fence this past time about the early testing, it's really a mixed bag of pros and cons, but if it provides you reassurance I think it's worth it.

  • I don't blame you for being nervous -  I would be too.  So much of this process is out of our control and can make you feel so powerless.  Hope the BW can ease your worries a bit so you can enjoy your BFP.
    Me 39 & suspected PCOS, DH 42. Went off BCP when we got married in 11/11, seriously TTC since 3/12.  Six cycles of clomid = BFNs.  Suspected endometriosis & HSG showed both tubes blocked.  Sept 2013 IVF 5D transfer of two perfect embryos = BFN.  Started acupuncture and taking time off to drop some pounds & get healthier before FET in April 2014.
  • Everyone, thank you all so much for the reassurance! I just have a good feeling all will be well tomorrow, and they won't make me wait 3 days for results :-)
