Re: *** First Trimester Check in Week of October 10th ***

  • @ddvj79  Ha--I also picked an OB one floor up from PNWF!  I work at Harborview just 3 blocks away, so wanted to keep all my care easy-access.  I can walk over on my lunch break, etc for an appointment.  At PNWF, I worked with Dr Marshall, although I have seen all the providers at one time or another.  They are great!
    Me: Age 40  Husband: Age 41
    Chemo killed my ovaries (along with a BRCA1 mutation, which causes DOR)
    4/30/13 ER just prior to chemo: 8 embryos frozen at 2pn. 2 survived to blasts/1 PGS normal

    4/16 ER cancelled on CD7: 1 follicle on L/ 0 follicles on R
    FET #1  7/13/16  BFN

    Super shocker +HPT 9/19
    Baby Alyce arrived 5/8/17

    Went forward with donor eggs from my sister for baby #2
    ER 4/24, 5 eggs fertilized/1 survived to blast and was chromosomally normal.

    FET 2/15 (my sister/donor's birthday!).  Beta 10dp5dt:172; beta 12dp5dt: 425

  • Hi ladies,

    Anyone have experience catching a cold in the first tri? I caught a cold from my husband on Tuesday and have been drinking a ton of liquids to try to get better quickly. Since I was already so tired from the pregnancy this cold feels really challenging. One thing that's odd is that my appetite has disappeared and with it, the nausea I've had since week 5. I'm 11 weeks now. It makes me nervous, but I'm telling myself it's just the cold that's interfering with the symptoms of pregnancy. Thoughts? 
    me: 40, husband: 41
    TTC since 2010
    History: Too many IUIs, 2 cancelled OE IVF cycles, 4 DE cycles with two different donors, all failed
    5th DE transfer with third donor, August 2016: BFP!
    u/s confirmed HB 9/15, 2nd u/s 9/22 - everything's still on track, EDD 5/5/2107.

  • Hi @Tulumina! I had a cold about a month ago, around week 8 or 9. It was pretty bad: sore throat, running nose, sneezing, coughing, etc. I worked from home a couple of days and took some Tylenol when the headaches got too bad, but toughed it out! Can't remember if I had any appetite changes, but I wouldn't worry too much... my symptoms tend to vary day to day. Some days I feel GREAT (and worry), and others I feel miserable (and am happy again lol). The one thing to look out for is fever. I took my temperature every couple of hours to make sure I didn't have a fever - could overheat baby and cause some problems. So if you're not running a fever, I wouldn't worry too much. Hope you feel better soon!

    AFM - this is my last ~*official*~ week in the 1st trimester!! Next week I will be moving on. GL to everyone!! H&H 9 months to each of you.

  • Oh and here are my answers :)

    1. How far along are you and what is your EDD? 13+4, 4/16/17

    2. Which oh-so-lovely pregnancy symptoms are you having? GAS!!! So much gas! Very uncomfortable and a little embarrassing. Oh and heartburn... or at least what I think is heartburn.

    3. When is your next appointment? um it's in FOREVER. Nov 14th to be exact. Didn't get to see baby on Monday's appt - they only did doppler (heartbeat was strong and PERFECT :) ), so I'm dying to see baby!!!

    4. Anything else you'd like to share? nah

    QOTW: What is the weirdest food you've been craving? The three C's: Carbs, cupcakes, and cheese. Forcing myself to eat fruits and veggies though (bleh!)

  • @Tulumina Like @babylonghorn16 said, the biggest thing you need to watch out for is fever. I got one during my previous pregnancy, and it freaked me the heck out! If you do start to get one, the thing I would recommend (other than tylenol of course) is a bath that is about 98-99 degrees. If you have a meat thermometer you can use that to get the water temp before filling the tub. Your babe is well protected, so a few days of off eating will be fine.

    @babylonghorn16 Oh my gosh, your next appointment is soooooooo far away! Why do you have 5 weeks inbetween appointments? Ick! As for heartburn, I've found that if I get it while doing anything other than sitting upright, sitting helps. It sucks because DH love to snuggle, and seems to always want to right after I've eaten. I have to tell him I'll only do it if he wants me to have heartburn then barf!

  • @Tulumina I have been pretty sick for the last couple of weeks with a cold.  I didn't throw up at all during my first tri (but was nauseous) until I got sick, then I could barely eat.  Just keep pushing the fluids, drink tea, etc.  I'm seeing my OB tomorrow so hopefully she has some more hints of how to help get rid of this cough!

  • @AandDM2014 ob said I'm a normal prego now, and that's just the schedule of a normal (not high risk) singleton birth! SUCKS. Doesn't she know I'M SPECIAL?! ;) It'll be worth the wait though - they are doing anatomy scan at my next appt!!! We will see A LOT of baby then. Will have to shield our eyes when they look for genitalia - we are keeping as a surprise! Can't wait. Thanks for the tips on heartburn!

  • Hello!

    1. How far along are you and what is your EDD?
    I am 5 weeks 6 days today. EDD is June 9th, 2016
    2. Which oh-so-lovely pregnancy symptoms are you having?
    Queasy, hungry but food is kinda gross to me right now
    3. When is your next appointment?
    Monday the 17th. It was supposed to be my 1st u/s but it'll be my second since I had one done yesterday after I had a cramping scare. Everything looked fine and I have a singleton in there :)
    4. Anything else you'd like to share?
    We haven't told anyone the news yet (except my mom). But I have started cough gagging these last couple days and work people will probably catch on soon if it keeps up. It seems weird them knowing before family. (we are out of state from fam)
    QOTW: What is the weirdest food you've been craving?
    No cravings yet...except for my bed. I crave my bed!

    Hi everyone - I'm back. I've been silent for a couple of weeks but that doesn't mean I haven't checked in on you all to see how you are doing. Welcome to all the newbies. So happy to see you here.

    Its been a bit hard to be positive and not sick with worry after our vanishing twin, but we are definitely in a better spot and moving forward with a healthy singleton.  @AandDM2014 would you mind editing the list above -thanks. 

    1.) How far along are you and EDD: 11 weeks and 3 days. EDD 05/03 although this has changed twice and the baby is now consistently measuring ahead. Confusing! 
    2.) symptoms: Almost none. I have had a couple of episodes of ms but for maybe 5 minutes. Tired, but that's been manageable. I would like to think I'm lucky, but I couldn't really enjoy the symptom-free existence because I kept worrying it meant something is wrong (will we ever stop worrying?). 
    3.) next appointment: Sunday 23rd Oct. Hope I get to see the lil one dance around again. Just amazing! 
    4.) anything else you want to share: I still can't believe this is happening and I cannot shake off the worry. Really hope that once the first trimester is over I can start enjoying this amazing journey.  
    QOTW: what is the weirdest food you have been craving: I don't have any weird cravings but aversions: I can't smell Thai food anymore which is problematic because I live in Thailand...
