Hi ladies! Hope you are all having a good weekend! I took a second pregnancy test this morning and it came back with a really strong positive line, so guess this is really happening!! Am going to book an appointment with my GP this week to try and get a referral for an early scan.
Does anyone know when an early scan is normally done?
Jojo- early scan can be done as early as 5 weeks to check is baby is snuggled in the right place. But typically 7 weeks you'll see a hb. I prefer 7 weeks or later. Too early and you'll be making yourself worry unnecessarily.
hi all , I guess I belong here too. I used to be on this forum many years ago, and I am back. I had a loss before my rainbow who is 2. I was 7 weeks , no fetal pole , just yolk sac and was measuring a week and a half behind. All my pregnancies are GD and just horrible morning sickness, and every since my loss I am very anxious. I have seen a heart beat but a lot of us know that doesnt mean everything.
Jojo what florida said, I'm also not a fan of 5-6 weeks scans. They cause a lot of unnecessary worry.
Welcome lemsz! It's wonderful that you've seen a heartbeat already. I'm very sorry for your loss. You definitely lose the innocent thoughts that everything will go perfectly. I hope that we are able to lift each other up when we are having a moment of anxiety or weakness. Would you mind sharing your EDD?
Ladies this progesterone is kicking my behind. After last week's lab results I was put on 200mg to be taken 3 times/day. About an hour or so after each dose I start feeling loopy and then sleepy and pass out for about 30 minutes. But if that is what it takes to help this little one grow appropriately I'll go through it and a whole lot more. My next draw is tomorrow, praying for amazing numbers.
How did you share with your OH that you were expecting?
My story is fairly lame. Once he got home from work I told him I had something to show him and then promptly pulled the test from behind my back. He said "really? how?" We had just come off a loss and had only been intimate once. Then he followed up with "those lines are a lot darker than last time" and had a huge grin on his face. Every day he gives me a kiss and says "positive thoughts".
