I got a blood test done and it was negative!! How did I get positive hpts then?? Confused
It depends on what your lab considers positive. Sometimes they don't consider it positive until 50 or 100 and early hpts are sometimes as sensitive as 10miu! I have only had quantitative hcg blood tests which tell you an exact number, so I don't know what level the qualitative considers positive.
Hi ladies! It's been awhile! My husband came home early from his 3 month trip, so we have been busy!
Loz-Congrats on your little boy! I bet it's great to already have what you need!
Clobo-so glad to hear your pregnancy is progressing so well!
Debzie-I know we don't know each other, I'm sorry for your loss, and I hope you will have some good news to share soon! When I went for a referral for testing after several ms, I was already pregnant again, and still am at 24 weeks today!
So we found out the sex last month and it was so nice that my husband was able to be there to see it. He has missed most of my pregnancy up until that point so it was so sweet to see the look on his face when he got to see that baby, hear the heartbeat, see every detail of the heart, ect.
So the results are..........GIRL! Yardley Ray. She is a ninja. She moves so much and kicks like a football player (soccer for us Americans).
I got some 3D pics done and WOW. I guess I know what hubs would look like if his face was melting. In one picture she looks as though she's praying.
One thing the doctor mentioned was that she's tiny. She's below average for gestational age, but growing at a steady rate. She's measuring at about 23 weeks instead of 24. Remember me saying I wasn't showing? I'm STILL barely showing. I have a tiny little bump. I have not even gained 10lbs. yet. The doctor did say she looks great otherwise, and to not worry unless she worries, and she's not worried. Easier said than done. My mother however put my mind at ease by reminding me that she didn't even gain 20lbs. with my brother (her first) and that he was only 6lbs. and a few ounces. She also said that I was a tiny baby, and that I am still very tiny.
So glad your scan all went well, its amazing to see it all isnt it, i couldnt believe you could even see little finger and toe bones!! Yay for girl . I seriously wouldnt worry, as your midwife says if she isnt worried then you should be either, a week isnt that much different i wouldnt have though and after 12 weeks babies grow at different rates .... some babies are born at 6 lb and some at 10lb, that difference has to start fairly early on so I guess yours will just be one of the smaller ones.
Glad your husband got to experience it too, i think its what made Ben realise what was actually in there although we are staying team !!
hi crayz congrats on the little girl, i really wouldnt worry bout her size, although wen i was preg with ds i did get huge, every1 was saying oooo ur gona have 9lber well he turned out to be 5lb 13 he was tiny but he was absolutly fine
Crayz- I wouldn't worry unless your Dr. says something is wrong. All three of my SIL's girls were tiny. One was 6lbs, one was 5.5lbs and her last was only 3lbs 12oz (although she was a preemie and diagnosed as growth restricted). All three girls were born completely healthy. It is quite funny too because my SIL is a lot bigger than me and has tiny babies and was on the smaller side when I got pregnant with DS and he was almost 9lbs! It just shows you each woman is different!
Your words make me feel so much better! The doctor scheduled my next scan for a month. If she was in a rush I figure she would have wanted to see me sooner. She did have me get bloodwork to test for viruses just to rule it out, but I haven't been sick at all (as I actually have a pretty BA immune system). I am an American living on a tropical island (not as glamorous as it sounds) in a foreign country, so I guess they just like to cover all bases because my immunities are different than people who have lived here their whole lives.
Clobo, I'll have to break out my laptop to post pics. I am an iPad addict, so breaking out a laptop computer is a lot of work, lol. But I will do it tonight so you can see my melting, waxy-faced daughter. Your pictures are always SO clear. That picture is so amazing. I applaud you for waiting to find out the sex. I couldn't do it!
Funny story, when we found out the sex, the conversation between my husband and the doctor (who's like 60) went like this:
Doc: "I see no boy parts."
Hubs: "What does that mean?"
Doc: "It's a girl."
Hubs: "Well, there is still a chance it could be a boy, right?"
Doc: "Um, I've kinda been doing this for awhile, and I'd say your chances of a boy at this rate is like 10%, and that's me being really generous....
