I definitely wouldn't worry about symptoms yet confuzion! I honestly think my body has been pregnant so many times it just jumps back into it right away haha. I don't remember having symptoms early with my first few babies. With my 3rd I didn't even know I was pregnant until almost 6 weeks since I bled and thought it was a period.
Nika that sounds so adorable how you told him. My hubs knows when I'm testing so I won't ever get to do the cute stuff lol. He just texts and asks how it turned out.
Dragonfly I don't think you're being overly sensitive. It's your care, you have a right to know what's going on with your baby.
Talk about symptoms, a friend of mine didn't even know she was pregnant until 5 months in! She kept having light periods and thought the moments of morning sickness were allergies, she has a lot of food sensitivities.
Dragonfly- I had a horrible experience with my MC at the hospital and I filed a formal complaint because of how that staff treated my MC. It was like they didn't believe me that I was MC and pretended that everything was fine. When my OB found out what happened at the ER she was appalled and called the hospital to complain as well.
I don't think you're being overly sensitive at all, I actually think THEY are being insensitive. I would say something about it and be firm. Or maybe talk to the office manager about how the nurse treated you. I know my OB's office takes those comments very seriously and tries to be very sensitive and understanding. Do you have the option of seeing a different clinic? I would definitely consider that based on how they are treating you.
I have to agree with Niki dragonfly. If someone, even a single nurse, made you feel like that you should speak to someone else. If no one takes you seriously, then time to find a new office. How can you spend 8 months seeing people who could make you feel that way? Completely invalidating your very valid concerns.
Thanks for the reassurances ladies. I guess it's still early yet for symptoms anyway. I haven't even missed my period yet lol.
I made a group siggy if you guys wants to check out the first post at the bottom!
The OB I'm currently set up with handled my miscarriage fine so I was surprised that they made me feel like they didn't care finding out I was pregnant again.
I'm so sorry Niki that you had a horrible experience at the hospital. It's good you filed a formal complain though.
I could see a different clinic but this one is the closest to home. The other one is a small drive away but in traffic it can take forever. The farther away hospital is actually where I delivered DD and I loved it there. Maybe I should just go back because I remember loving the staff when I labored and delivered.
Confuzion - thank you for this. With DD I saw a small midwifery clinic and only one of the midwives ever listened to me, the other two always made me feel invalidated over everything. I deserved better care, and I'm glad I got risked out to an OB because of pre-e. I deserve good care and to feel like I matter, I'm calling the other clinic tomorrow to see what openings they will have - if any sooner than December 6th.
My lines are slowly getting darker each morning so FXd for a sticky bean. I've been really stressed the last couple days with my kids, work and planning DD1s 4th birthday. I'll be glad when things calm down and after my scan. Still paranoid about any feeling of blood flow or seeing blood when I pee. I talked with a friend and she said the anxiety doesn't go away until 2nd tri, sometimes longer for others.
Can i join please? Just got my bfp on frer at 15dpo, had a couple of questionable lines on ics the past couple of days, hopefully going for bloods on Monday, trying not to get to excited after 2 back to back losses so will see. Congratulations to you all. Will go and read through the thread xx
Nika - I have to agree with your friend. With my daughters pregnancy I don't know that it ever totally went away. But definitely got more manageable. You can do this. And yes I definitely find myself doing the 'toilet paper check' pretty much every time I pee.
MrsD - let us know how it goes with getting in with the other clinic.
YAY myheart!! Congrats! What is your due date so I can add you to the first post? Fingers tightly crossed that this is your rainbow baby!
Just Chugging along here. I can't believe I've been getting positive pregnant tests for 6 days and I'm still 2 days away from even being 4 weeks?! Lol. This trimester is going to draaaag.
