hmmohrma - Those are great numbers. I wish they did level checks over here like they seems to in the U.S. With my MMC last year I got bloods after I was earlier than they thought and my hcg was almost 1400 at 4+4. Wonder what it is with this one.
Hey tcinks, I think I remember you from before. Congrats on your BFP!
AFM - I'm having such a tricky time not worrying about everything. I feel as though I just can get excited yet. Keep reminding myself that right now I am pregnant, and that I need to just take it one day at a time. Has anyone thought about when they are telling family?
Hi tcinks!! Welcome! Of course you can join! What team are hoping for? Good luck at your ultrasound!
I know that feeling Lyn, my first ultrasound is in 2 weeks and its driving me insane not knowing! We've already told my mother, DHs grandmother, my grandparents and his father, but thats it. We only told them because we feel they deserve to know and they are our support system if we lose another.
hmmohrma, have you been able to get some Progesterone?
Lyn, we told our family a few days ago, at 5+4. We thought about waiting, but honestly I just feel better with people knowing. Yes, I know it's still early and "anything can happen", but my previous losses were 2nd trimester, so I know anything can happen then, too. So I just want to enjoy every day of my pregnancy and I want others to share in that joy with me!
It's still scary though. I had some brown spotting and cramping last night and was so worried and thought "why did I tell everyone?!" Ugh. Everything is fine, though.
It's our plan to hold off as long as possible before we tell our families. They are an amazing support system but my sister is due at the end of next month and I don't want our news to over shadow her. I know everyone would just worry and I don't want it ruining the excitement of her first child. Its bad enough that she found out she was pregnant that i had my MMC the same weekend. When she did tell the family some five weeks later, it was tinged with sadness for what should have been for me. I really want her to have her moment. At her due date i should be about 10 weeks so its not that hard to wait a couple more after that until 12 weeks. I have everything crossed we can get that far. It's going to be a long eight weeks!
That's so nice of you! I could never wait that long to tell, and my mom always knows when I'm pregnant, anyway. (She texted me the first day we got a and told me she had a dream that I was pregnant. She knew with my sisters, too. Crazy.) My sister and sister in law are both pregnant right now. I don't think there will ever be a time in the near future when someone isn't pregnant in the family. I lost my first baby at 13 weeks, 1 week before my SIL had her first baby. I don't feel like my loss overshadowed her birth though (if anything I feel like it was the opposite). But anyway, I know where you're coming from, it can be a tricky situation. Glad you're handling it well.
No one else is pregnant in my family right now (which is honestly surprising), when we lost Sophie in Sept, my cousin was due 2 weeks later and had her daughter, and that was harder on me really more than it really affecting anyone else. But as tcinks says, its tricky and all depends on each persons family
I just feel like after she didn't get a big happy announcement that I don't want to take away from her big moment of having her little girl. To be fair, it all depends on symptoms. If I start being sick then I know they'll all catch on or I might not be able to hide it. I want to hold off for as long as possible! We won't be telling DH's family until then either because I don't want some people knowing more than others. Tricky when DH works with his dad but we'll just have to come up with an excuse!
