Did you find your way over here?????

Hey DB! I just found you and some other newly pg ladies from the ttc threads. I've been feeling pretty good these days. Not too much cramping anymore (only gas - tmi). I've been really really tired. I need a nap every day now.

DB what did your EDD end up to be? You got your BFP about a week before I did I think. I don't know whether to go by my LMP or ov date (because it was late). So depending on which one I'm either 4w5d or 5w6d along right now. I think I'm going to go with the least amount and the Feb 1st duedate.

I'm looking at Jan 27th!!! Based on conception date, since I know that!!! did you get a beta??? I had my third today...waiting for the results!!!

I'm unsure of when they will do any blood work. My first appt is June 5th. I think because I haven't had any m/c they probably won't watch my labs that close. However, I really would like then to check everything. I took a cheapy and regular hpt yesterday. While both showed positives right away, they weren't as dark as I would have thought since I've been getting pos since last wednesday. Makes me nervous, but at least I haven't had any bleeding or spotting. If I do now, I will probably freak out! :)

We haven't told our parents yet. I wouldn't mind doing so, however I think Scott wants to wait because he hasn't actually proposed yet.....lol.....we picked out rings back in February, so I guess he better get a move on it!!!!

I've heard that the cheapie tests don't get too dark. I took my FRER at 19dpo and I got a very very dark line. So it took a good week to get it to really darken up. My beta today was over 8,000!!! So, it went from 146 to 8,000 in 8 days...crazy. I have my first u/s a week from today. I'm so excited!!! We told our families and a few close friends. I feel like it was so obvious. we had some friends over on saturday and I was the only person not drinking, then we had a wedding on sunday and I was the only sober person. People will be figuring this out sooner than later!! Yeah, he better get a move on proposing!!! Did your families know you were ttc?? Ours had no idea, so they were a bit surpised, but they're all very happy.

Wow! Your numbers are doing great. Just my stepmom and sister knew we were ttc. This will be a second marriage for both of us. It is especially sweet because of my gyn issues and he thought he couldn't have kids. Apparently only his ex-wife was infertile (he was never tested, so we didn't know for sure). Whew!!!! I keep teasing him now.....what do you know they work....lol

That's great that his guy's are ok!!! My prometrium is really making me dizzy dizzy dizzy and tired tonight. DH is at the cubs game with clients, so I slept from about 6pm-9pm. I feel like such a bum, but I can't help it!! My nurse said to relax and nap and take it easy, so I am!! I was wide awake when I woke up til I took my prometrium. Talk about side effects!!! ...Ok, I'm off to bed..I will talk to you tomorrow!!! I just realized my next appt, is the day after yours. Do you think you'll get an early u/s??? Are you having any m/s. I'm not at all.

Hey DB! I haven't really had m/s with vomiting yet. (keeping my fingers crossed) I do however get nauseated thru out the day at times. And todays lunch I think was threatening to come back up for a couple of hours. It did not sit well at all. I ate up so leftovers from the weekend. YUCK! I've heard about a lot of side effects from prometrium. I have read on here that taking it at bedtime is better tat preventing side-effects. I have also read about some gals who have gotten really sick from it being told by their doctors to insert the pill v____ally. I guess that would work too. I hope I will be able to get an early u/s. I wish I could see the hb. The receptionist who set up my 1st appt told me they will try to listen to heart tones. I know the hb starts around the 5th week, but I didn't think it was possible to hear it until much later.

DB how are you today? I was just wondering how you were feeling....

 

DB - May 31

I'm feeling good. I just get soooooo tired around 2pm. I just wish I could nap at work. Yesterday I slept for 2.5 hours after work...and today was about 1.5 hours of napping. I feel like a bum, but I'm just so tired!!! How are you doing??? Are your bb's sore?? Mine kill and they're growing (which I don't mind!!!)...Ok, have a good night.

 

littlenurse73 - June 1

I just got done with work. I worked 3-11pm today. I've been yawning like crazy since 9pm. I was starting to feel a little sick before I left work. So I had a little something when I got home and now I feel better. The bb's are def. sore. I wish they would grow!!!! I've been an A cup my whole life. I'm ready for the b___by fairy to visit.....My whole body aches today. I don't really know why. Especially in the groin area. I wonder if this is the stretching or something? Anyhow, I'm off to bed. I haven't napped in 2 days because of the 3-11 shift. So tired!

DB the doctors office called me today at work about my labs from Monday's appt. It seems that my progesterone level is low. It was 11 & now they want me to take prog suppositories twice a day. Yuck! It's worth it though to keep the little bean ok in there. I'm glad I requested them to check the level the other day. Hope everything is going well for you!

 

DB - June 8

Mine was right around that too, 11.3...Luckily I get to take prometrium and it works wonders!!! Have you had any beta's done??? I didn't tell you I got my first ultrasound on tuesday!! So neat. My bean is measuring good and the heartrate was 117 (which they said is OK)...I have another one on this coming Wednesday...then I think an appointment with the actual RE (instead of the nurses) and then she will let me go back to my regular ob...I'm so excited to see how the next ultrasound goes. I know in a week they can grow so much. Do you have an early ultrasound scheduled??? Are you having m/s at all...I have started getting sick-feeling, but only at night!! I am just soooooooo tired..and I know you know what i'm feeling there!!!

 

littlenurse73 - June 8

You are so lucky to get an ultrasound done. I wish I could have one to make sure things are ok. I'm deathly afraid that my low prog. means something is wrong with this pregnancy. On the otherhand, I have never even spotted once and the pregnancy symptoms just keep increasing. Both yesterday and today my bb's have had many many shooting pains. I'm a__suming this is good. However, I'm still worried that something will happen now. The nurse didn't say that my doctor wanted to see me any sooner or anything. I don't have an appt with him until 4 weeks from today. Maybe I will talk to him tomorrow.....I'll be his surgical nurse in the operating room for the day. Maybe he will bring up something on his own without me hounding him.

 

DB - June 10

It seems like a lot of women have these progesterone problems...and Yes, I am very greatful that my RE is all about ultrasounds...now when I finally go back to my ob, i'll probably only get one or two throughout the rest of the pregnancy. So, i hate my size right now. I've gained a few pounds, but definitely not showing or anything, but I hate the way I look in everything..we have a wedding today and I do nt' even want to go because i look like a fat-a__s!!! I'm 7 weeks today, so I know I have only a month or month & a half until I'll start to show. I'll be thankful for that! How are you feeling otherwise???
