Hi over here- everybody already said what I had to contribute, so I will add a "I agree!" to the previous posts and get back to work. Oh except for Robyn- the 'realness' is why we haven't bought, looked for, done a darn thing. I'm still to afraid to admit it will happen, becuase as soon as I do that, something will go crashing down- I live each day waiting for it. :S

Morning all :)) STEF AND LORI- both of you should call your doctors. what are they going to do, refuse to talk with you? NO!! STEF- please let us know when you get your new number. back. please refresh my memory of the date, DPO and level of your first draw? LORI- i would listen to Robyn if i were you. she knows here stuff!!! it is a small sacrifice to make in a very large picture. it will only be until the sch goes away. You CAN help yourself and it sound s like your hubby is being very elpful with picking up the slack. JULIE- what time is your appointment tomorrow? will you come right on and let us know??? :))~ CYNDI- that is absolutely fabulous news about your surgery. i bet that your new doctor will refer to CRM here in orlando when you are ready to get pregnant!! what is the recovery process going to be like for you after the surgery? STEF- hang in there, girlie...take it easy today and let us know when you hear something.

DUCKIE - see i knew you could relate LOL. My DH said nothing to worry about this is a very exciting time and we are setting the room up this weekend so thats whats gonna happen. Everything has been fine with this pregnancy except for the very beginning and we just had our big appt last week with the peri and he said everything was great except for that small marginal previa thing but hes not concerned about that right now. So i just need to go with the flow of the rest of the pregnancy and realize we have done everything to ensure a healthy pregnancy and everything points in that direction that the baby is completely normal and healthy.

JEN - thank you for your kind words!! In my situation it was easier to lie in bed because Anthony is so much older than her kids and i know its got to be hard to look after a small child and not get the rest she needs. Lori hope everything is ok but on the flip side of this at least you know what the spotting/bleeding is from if you didnt know you had the SCH you would be absolutely freaking out understandably. Have hubby pick up all the slack around the house Jason had to and still does. I didnt even empty the dishwasher he made me leave everything for him when he got home from work. I didnt lift a finger.

Lori, Robyn and Tory is absolutely right. You have to rest. I didn't get any cramps before my bleeding, the bleeding is came out of the blue. But i remember being crampy at around 7-9 weeks time. I know that it's hard to rest when you have young toddler at home, but you have got to rest!!! If you start cramping and spotting, you need to see your doctor ASAP!

Stef, hang in there. I know it's hard to be optimistic when you have been through so much, but have faith!! We are all praying for you and your lil bean. I hope you get good news this afternoon.

Thank you girls...ZEN, my first beta was like 954 at 16dpo. I might have been 18 dpo, but that is the latest it could have been most likely. So the way I figure it, I had the 2nd draw exactly 4 days later (and a couple of hours), so my new beta should be at least 3800 I think for it to satisfy me. No word on the new betas yet. This time I went through a lab that my acupuncturist sent me to. I really didn't want to go back to my OB's to get the blood drawn. My new dr. who is out of town could have sent me to an independent lab I'm sure but I just knew Jill could send me to her lab. Sucks though that they take so d__n long. I will KILL if the results don't come in today. I don't know why I even care at this point because even with good numbers I still am spotting and that doesn't change anything. I'd rather know now that it's not gonna make it instead of spotting and worrying for the next week and a half only to go to the u/s and find nothing. Excuse my pessimism :-S CYNN, when you had all of your spotting, did it start and stop sporadically or was it constant? If it did stop, how long would it stop for--days at a time or less?

 

Tory1980 - November 6

Stef, any news? Oncemore, I know it is bloody difficult not doing anything with young ones in the house (especially Kayla as she depends so much on you still) but you have got to take it easy. Plus if the Doctor sees you not resting he may just yank your a__s into the hosptial and then you will have no choice! Thinking of that, what's the number? I am going to call and tell on you!

 

Tory1980 - November 6

Sorry Stef, missed post! Understand the wanting to know either way - if all is well then fine, if you are miscarrying can it just get on with it so you can deal with it either way. Not knowing what is going on is the worst! Can you phone and torture them rather than waiting for them to call you? Tell them you will wait on the phone as well and you won;t wait for a call back - you want to know whether theya re in or not and what the results are.

 

cynnababy - November 6

Stef, when i had spotting earlier on, it was pretty consistent. Although not everytime i went to the bathroom I see brown/pink when I wipe, but it's pretty much at least once a day i will see spotting when I wipe. Most of the time it's mainly brownish, but a couple of days i swear it was more pinkish than brown. It totally freaked me out, and everytime i sees it, I can feel my heart at the bottom of the pit. I am so sorry that you have to go through spotting in early pg. I will not wish that on my worst enemy.

SO SO SORRY that was so long!

 

oncemore - November 6

STEF- wouldn't that just be weird if you too had a sch??? So many on this site? Your first number was REALLY good! TORY- lol... you make me laugh! Thanks for the scolding, lol!

 

Tory1980 - November 6

Oncemore, lie to hubby. First though phone the Doctor if only so he is aware of the situation for the next time you see him - he may even ask you to come in and see if that spotting has done anythnig good or bad to the SCH. Tell hubby while you were on the phone they have told you if resting at home is a problem they will take you in for a few days - imagine how quick he will sort things then when it ALL lies on him! LOL! He will be dusting and have a broom up his b___t at the same time! With this you do have control over it to a certain extent so for that you are lucky but hubby needs to realise that 'what will be will be' is fine in some cases but not in this one. In your case if you don't slow down and get more help it could lead you right down to miscarrying again. From what I have read on SCH (I tell you, you ladies get me all intrigued and then off I go to look things up!) it is rare that that happens but it CAN happen and why bring a miscarriage on when it can be avoided? Maybe he is burying his head in the hope all will go well and by saying there is a problem will make it too real again for him. If you are carrying on as normal there is obviously nothing to worry about and maybe that is how he is handling this complication. I would suggest you sit on him and make him listen to the problems you could have, the bleeding you are having and tell him you are scared. Maybe he needs to hear that from you. I said that to Bob at the start with the bleed and he realised then that all was not fine and well. I handled the miscarriage in January better than him and believe me I was a complete mess but I never told him I was scared once. When we found out we were pregnant again I was absolutly petrified but I never once said anything until the bleed. I think with me telling him that I was scared made him realise something could be very wrong. We aren't Wonder Woman but sometimes I think the men think we are.

Hi girls! Miss a few hours and already on a new thread! CYNDI- great news on your surgery! How long did he say the recovery was? Maybe you posted it and I missed it. Sorry! TORY- those d__n contractions of yours!!! At this point it seems silly for me to say I hope they stop, that baby is eager to come out that's for sure!!! ROBYN-That is good to know that you can take Tylenol PM while pg. I never would have thought it. I love that stuff too! It works miracles!!! STEF- any word yet?? LORI- yes, definately modify your chores more! Give DH a good slap in the face if he complains! lol I imagine it's tough on the men as they aren't used to doing these things but it's a good dose of reality for them too! Can't wait for you to stalk my chart! This weekend I'm going to start the OPK's i'm curious to see if when it says I'll O my chart will coincide. ZEN- how are you doing? FRANCES- i tried emailing you this morning! I hope its working! CYNN-how far along are you now? The time feels like it's whizzing on by! Got to get back to work! Hope everyone is doing well!

 

ROBYN - November 6

Lori - did your DH go with you to this appt to see the SCH on the u/s?? I am sorry hes not being supportive that certainly doesnt help the matter. My parents picked Anthony up everyday from school if they couldnt Jason would rearrange meetings to pick him up so i didnt do anything. I dont even work or have the stress you do with small children on top of being pregnant so thats got to add to the additional stress. But Jason wouldnt and still wont allow me to do anything its just his personality. I hope its doesnt take a bleed for you husband to realize how important it is for you to get help around the house and that you need to rest. I am glad things have stopped but please just mention it to your doctor regardless. STEF - anyway you can call and see if they can give you the results now or do they have a specific time they make their phone calls?
