Good luck Alli x fingers crossed all come back looking good

Anyone had bleeding gums...last night was ridiculous. Couldn’t believe it.
And I second the exhaustion!!! I was falling asleep at my desk yesterday!

I think I may have gotten whatever virus my son had last weekend. I can't breathe through my nose at all today. Last night, I rolled over to cough and my right ovary hurt so bad, it felt like it was ripping out, but settled down and I think all is ok.

I took some more tests on sunday, but am all out now, so I'll just have to wait it out. My dr definitely won't do betas unless there is a previous mc. I go to see her for the first time on Nov 27, right around 8 weeks. I can always text her if I have any questions before then, too.

I'm headed to my doctor Friday but only because of a thyroid concern. During my routine prenatal work last time my thyroid came back as slightly hypothyroid (I've struggled with this in the past so not surprising but I am not symptomatic), then I had a follow up a month later, same result. My doctor said it's not enough of a concern to medicate me, but when I'm pregnant they want to retest and probably get me on meds, as it can become more serious during pregnancy, so she told me to come in straight away. So I feel good that I have an appointment to get it all confirmed (I'm nervous for some reason, my lines on ICs are still faint but I'm getting strong positives on FRER) and start the process for blood work.

No more spotting today and I walked to meet a friend at lunch so I'm feeling a bit better. My resting heart rate is also up again today, which is weirdly reassuring.

When my results came back my doctor said mine was like a 5 and the normal is 4 or lower (or whatever the numbers were, I can't recall), but anything between a 5 and 10 is considered 'controversial' in the medical field on whether non-symptomatic people should be medicated, as often medication can push them into the opposite direction, hyperthyroid (this happened to me before). But, in pregnant women, it's different and they want to make sure you're monitored and your levels are exactly where they need to be.

Gotcha. I can't remember exactly what my lab work said but I go in Friday to see my doctor and will hopefully get it all sorted.

Alli - it's great that your tests are getting darker. They don't do betas here either, only the very first check to confirm pregnancy. I feel confident that if I asked them for another blood test though to check the levels, they would do it.

Starryeyed - do you keep up with your regular dental checkups and maintain good oral hygiene before pregnancy? I'm a dental assistant, and *usually* we only see the bleeding gums in people who may have let things slip a little pre-pregnancy. Just make sure you floss every day and brush twice. Wouldn't hurt to see your dentist for a check up & clean either

AFM, I am 5 weeks today. I'm already nauseous, and have been from the beginning. With my other two pregnancies I never got MS until 6 weeks, so this has taken me by surprise. I'm glad I have a symptom though! As for being tired, I can't nap or anything because I have two little ones at home, but I end up falling asleep sooo early at night. I have been determined to keep up my regular gym routine though this time. I'm hoping it will help to keep me feeling more energised. During my last pregnancies, I basically gave up exercising & eating well as soon as I found out I was pregnant. I am currently the fittest and healthiest I have ever been, and I'm really stressed about the weight I will put on.

Anyone else keeping up with their fitness & workout routines??

I like to keep up with my routine, but I was really hardcore, but I’m afraid of even doing it dialed down. Afraid I’ll miss carry since I’m high risk and this isn’t 6th and final ivf.
