I haven't done anything yet in the way of setting up appointments. As I have had an ectopic in the past I get an appointment with my hospital's EPU at about six weeks where they'll scan me to check that it's not another ectopic. So that would be an appointment around the 28th I think.

I'll also have to get my first midwife appointment which they normally schedule for about 8 or 9 weeks, I'm sure. And they'll give me a date for my 12 week scan when I make that appointment too. I'm a bit too scared to start making those appointments though!

Welcome hmmohrma! Congratulations on your BFP!

Interesting! Similar but not quite the same as what we do here

I had my first beta on Friday and my second is today and then my first RE/OB (I see them dually) is the 21st and thats just a "Tell me how you feel so far, update this and a mini exam" sort of appointment and then the week after that at 6 weeks I get the first ultrasound and we're given our dates!

What are some symptoms you all have had? My biggest one is exhaustion, I'm soooo tired! Two others are some cramping/stretching pain and a tiny bit of queasiness

Sore boobs! So tender! I've also had some AF like cramps today which scares me even though I know I had them before with my MMC so I know it's normal settling in pains. I've also been struggling not to need a nap during the day!

Navy, I just realized you are in Newport News. I live about an hour west of Richmond right by Longwood University! Small World! You are so lucky to get your Beta's back the same day! We are in a rural area, so I go to my primary care to draw the blood, they send it to Labcorp, and they fax results to my RE. It usually comes back early morning of the 2nd day, but my last one was Friday, so I have to wait until tomorrow morning....it's so hard to wait so long!

I've been nauseous on and off, especially the last couple days, and my chest is pretty sore. I'm hoping all these sign means my levels are continuing to rise. I'm also starting to have regular discharge, and every time I worry that I will check and see blood...thank goodness I haven't! I've also been exhausted!

Very small world! We're military so all of our care is through the base so nearly 90% of the blood work we have is done at the same facility, thats why its so fast haha

My 4w6d labs came back at 2909! My RE released me to my OB today, and I have my first ultrasound next Wednesday at 6w4d. I'll be holding my breath until we see that heart beat. I can still fly to visit my cousin and her sweet baby over my spring break in April, but I am not to lift anything over ten pounds.
