Finally made my appt for my first ultrasound. My doctors office wanted me to do it this upcoming week but I felt like that was really early so I'm pushing it off until the 25th. I miscarried just days after an early ultrasound last time. I know that wasn't the cause of it but I'm not taking chances.

raine- Good luck with your ultrasound. I'm sure everything will be great! You have more willpower than I do though. I'd have an ultrasound every single day if they'd let me. With my 3rd pregnancy I was so worried I think I had 8 ultrasounds in the 15 weeks I was pregnant. Lol. I was as addicted to those as I am poas. Gonna try to kick both those habits this time. Although I have over 30 pregnancy tests I've already taken this pregnancy. Lol 😜

Raine-you have way more willpower than I do, but I understand your reasoning and I would probably be similar if I were in your situation. I had my ultrasound yesterday and I won't have another until 12 weeks and I feel like that is going to drive me crazy, but from that point I'll be going to the doctors office weekly for cervical checks so I should get to see baby through the extra stressful part for me.

How far along are you now Raine?

Sophie-I only just quit taking pregnancy tests like a week ago after I got a 3+ on a clear blue easy digital. I figured at that point it was all going to be the same so I should quit obsessing over the shades of my line haha! I have locked all of my tests away now.

I took all my pregnancy tests (at least 25 of them) and then moved on to taking my wondfos opk just to see the hcg trigger a false LH surge. I'm not even sure I could photograph all my tests in one pic!! I haven't taken one since yesterday's ultrasound though so that's progress. And we leave for the beach Saturday so hopefully won't test again til I get home next week. Lol. Although it means nothing. Even if I miscarried it takes weeks for hcg to leave the body. I just get excited seeing those 2 lines. 😄😂

Thank you ladies. I'm feeling much better now. So glad I have you girls to talk to. Sophie - as I od around cd16/17 I know I'm a touch behind where my lmp puts me (5 weeks today!) but the 6 week scan is just so we know (hopefully) it's not another blighted ovum. I know none of the scans mean it'll be ok, even if we see a heartbeat at one of them, but I think I need the reassurance to get through it this time. I had an emergency scan at 10 weeks when we discovered the BO, but I can't face waiting that long!

I'm also a poas addict but I haven't bothered too much this time. I stopped when the line was as dark as the control - day af was due. My tests got darker and darker last time but I know now it didn't mean anything. This time I'm clearly a scan addict with 3 private ones booked before 12 weeks!

Raine - how many weeks will you be for your scan?

I'm 6 weeks and 1 day today so for the ultrasound I will be 9 weeks and 1 day. And honestly it's not about willpower so much as I'm too scared to do it so early again. I'm trying to be less stressed about this pregnancy and letting things just ride out. As long as I'm not having bleeding them I'm happy.

I've already have a little bout of spotting, which I have had in every pregnancy. Drives me crazy. It happened over a week ago though so I'm hoping that was it for this pregnancy. I don't like the added stress.

I feel like I would get scans pretty much every day if I could.

So my OB called me yesterday because she got my scan results (it was her first day back from maternity leave) she said everything looks great and so on. Then come to find out, her nurse never set me up for my maternity care even though she scheduled and had me go to my first ultrasound....Super confused by that. So I had to call the front office and get it set up and they can't even get me in for an "intake" appointment until I'm 10 weeks and won't be seeing my OB until 12 weeks. Which is whatever, but I have to have a referral sent over to the High Risk clinic and they supposedly won't do that until my intake appointment which would make it impossible for me to get an appointment in time for my cerclage (cervical stitch) consult. So I get to spend a lot of time on the phone trying to get this all sorted out. My doctors office isn't exactly the best when it comes to getting stuff done so I know I am going to have to be calling every day until it gets done. I'm just so frustrated about the extra stress. I was really hoping that all of this would go smoothly. Sorry for the rant, just feeling so grouchy about how all of this is going to work out and the fact that I won't be seeing the doctor again for another month.

Klabro- How frustrating!! I can't imagine the added stress. I'm in the U.S. where it's so easy to get appointments but I read so many stories like yours. I think it's just awful all the red tape you have to go thru to get an appointment. I'd go mad.

Thats the thing...I'm in the U.S. too. In a biggish town, but a pretty large OB practice and they just are so scheduled out all the time. Frustrating. I did manage to get them to send the referral, just nervous what my insurance is going to do with the referral if my OB's office hasn't technically set up prenatal care yet. We shall see. They say that it is usually approved within 5-7 days so I'll be calling next week at 5 days and every day thereafter to make sure that I get in.
