Thanks for your replies and letting me join. I remember some of you guys from before. I've just read the whole thread and can see what a bumpy ride I may be in for, but also lots of joy as you make your milestones. It's super early days for me but thanks for the advice about taking it one day at a time. I've been referred for an early scan already so that's my next goal

Thanks Ray! Everything went well. She able to find the HB with the doppler really quickly this time. Last time (at 11+2) she couldn't find it with the doppler, so she did an abominal ultrasound and we saw the baby, but no HB. Then she did a transvag ultrasound and we immediately saw the HB. But OMG was it so scary!!! We talked about that yesterday and she was like, "I felt so bad for you!! I couldn't imagine a worse person for that to happen to!!!!" LOL I love my doctor. She's seriously one of the sweetest people I've ever met.

How did your apt go???

I've felt pregnant for nearly a week but didn't want to get his or my hopes up. After 8 long months TTC this time & nearly 18 months TTC altogether it feels pretty amazing. Like I imagine all or you were/maybe still are I feel a bit nervous. But I'm doing my best to trust my body that this is my rainbow. Am going to make a GP apt today to see about baby aspirin and progesterone as rec by my gynaecologist.
Welcome Susie!! Congrats on the BFP!!! I definitely remember seeing you around from before. It took DH and I 8 months to get this BFP after our MC too. Isn't that awful?? I think a long wait like that is 10x harder after a loss! But so glad to hear that's over for you now!! And that's wonderful that they're going to get you in for an early scan! When is it??

Welcome Susie! It's good to have someone early in pregnancy to share my craziness with. One day at a time. "Today I'm pregnant, feeling icky, and I'm ok"

So glad your scan went well Topanga. Left?

Lol I'm loving the add on RED !!! " I feel icky " pmsl !!!!! I was at a training day on mindfulness today which was wonderful all about dealing with stress and living in the hear and now , what I learned is that 50% of the time we worry when were are happy that it will end and 50 % of the time we try avoid " not deal" with the " bad stuff that is happening . So in reality we never ever live and experience the hear and now either the good or the bad !!! So its all about learning to stay in the present which apparently enhances your life and reduces stress and negative outcomes so the advise is if you start to stress just take a second to " observe " the fact and check in with yourself which brings you back to the hear and now !!!
It's harder than it sounds lol.

AFM my jeans are getting very tight and uncomfortable ! Don't think ill be in them for much longer , I do believe there is a bump emerging or trying to from beneath the belly flab !!! Lol

YAY for tight jeans!!! I remember feeling that way and being excited- it was a great feeling.

I am so glad they found the HB topanga! It's a brilliant sound isn't it? Your baby must be a mover if they doc had trouble finding it with the doppler That is so scary to have to wait, but then to hear the baby's heart AND see the baby? Awesome!! Thank you for asking how mine was, I appreciate it. It went well. Listened to the heartbeat with the doppler, and she started measuring my belly this week. I do the glucose test at the next appt.

At my work we did a mindfulness training too left! I found it to be very helpful not only in this part of my life but in others as well

I'm so glad your appointment went well, Ray! Baby was definitely moving a lot at the ultrasound, but the doctor said that she couldn't hear it w/the doppler because I have a retroverted uterus and it was still early (11 weeks back then). But it WAS a special treat to get to see the baby then! It was almost disappointing when it worked right away with the doppler this time and I didn't get another unexpected ultrasound!

Left, my clothes have definitely been getting snug too! I gave up everything except for my looser clothes several weeks ago. Then today I noticed my sweater is riding up, so it's shorter in the front than in the back! I think it will be time to switch to maternity in the next couple of weeks!! Thankfully, one of my friends gave me her whole maternity wardrobe (most of which is office attire), so I won't have to buy too many new clothes for work! Exciting! Have you felt any movement yet, Left??
