I don't get back pains with AF and I'm not getting them now. Usually my only symptom is spotting and cramping for AF. I don't usually even get bloated, or at least nowhere near how bloated I've been lately. I"m not sure if it's still the 40 mature follicles I had at ET, or if it's the pregnancy, probably both.

Raelynn ~ Yaaay that's a great number! I can't wait until I do mine but I'm kind of nervous about it.

Christie ~ your bloating is probably from having so many follies. The hcg from the pregnancy triggers OHSS so you're probably getting a mild case of it. Make sure you drink lots of Gatorade and increase your protein intake.

Lots of chat going on here!

I'm from Cork in Ireland...

Regarding the cramps I'm not do bad during the day, just the odd af like twinge. From about 5 o'clock on though my stomach starts tightening up until it feels like I've done about 500 sit-ups! Once I've had my dinner all I want to do is lie on the couch with a warm water bottle (I'm avoiding hot ones now that I've had my bfp - gonna ask the FS on Friday about it) My back aches too in the evening and feel bloated. Strangely enough the cramping isn't worrying me at all - I just keep imagining everything stretching to make room for the ! I get more worried if I haven't had a twinge in a while...!

I was reading the caffeine section in What to Expect When You're Expecting (from now on I'm just going to call it WTEWYE!) and it said most doctors consider 200mg of caffeine per day to be safe during pregnancy and then it had a handy list so you can figure out what you're intake is...

1 cup brewed coffee (8 ounces) = 135 mg
1 cup instant coffee = 95 mg
1 cup decaf coffee = 5 mg
6 ounces caffe latte or cappuccino = 90 mg
1 ounce espresso = 90 mg
1 cup tea = 40 to 60 mg (green tea has less caffeine than black tea)
1 can of cola (12 ounces) = about 35 mg caffeine
1 can of diet cola = 45 mg
1 ounce milk chocolate = 6 mg
1 ounce dark chocolate = 20 mg
1 cup chocolate milk = 5 mg
8 ounces coffee ice cream = 40 to 80 mg

Looks like a bit of milk chocolate is fairly safe! The amount of caffeine in tea surprised me - although I've already switched to decaf and finding it fine.

Girls, if any of you have ereaders pm me your email addresses and I can email ye my stash of pregnancy/baby books. I haven't looked at all the ones I downloaded yet but there's definitely one r two good ones in the collection....


Gonna get up and poas now!

Edit: Well, still pregnant!! Line is getting lovely and dark - I'd say it'll be as dark as the test line tomorrow or the next day!

Loving the new tickers Lulu!!! When do we change to something other than poppy seeds?!

Edit: My 'What to Expect' app says baby is the size of an orange seed today!

Ok ladies, gotta go to work now *sigh* Anyone else finding work impossible at the moment?! Can't concentrate at all!! Although I'm going on a class trip with the kids to a quite famous Irish cookery school today so we'll be cooking and baking all day - should be fun! Very glad nausea hasn't set in yet!! Talk to ye later!

Thanks Broody!! I think this ticker is more accurate. There's no way the baby could be the size of an orange seed yet. The docs would be able to do an ultrasound this early and be able to see the baby. Maybe the the baby along with the sac are the size of an orange seed. My what to expect app is giving me a poppyseed as well but I don't know about what the 4th week will say. Congrats on the darker lines!!

I gained a pound too almostthere! Must have been the stoffer's mac and cheese I ate for lunch! Good luck with the 2nd beta!

Christie - I live in Charlotte, NC. I had pretty bad back pains on Saturday - we had to leave Target as it was bothering me so much and I just wanted to lay down on the couch.

Raelynn - Excellent 1st Beta!

Broody - My hubby's family came from Cork! I am a Polish girl with an O' name! Yeaaaahhh for chocolate! Great job on a darker line too. I don't have an e-reader.

Well, I already went into the RE office and gave my blood. Should hear back today. Really hoping for good numbers! I feel like I don't have many symptoms for turning 5 weeks today - but I guess it's still early... I was super emotional last night - I started crying bc I burnt dinner.
