That's exciting that you have an early appointment! I feel like the few weeks leading up to the first appointment seem to drag but then after that it goes faster.

My first appointment is February 20th. I'll meet with the prenatal nurse to fill out all my paperwork and then I will have my appointment with my ob. I will have an ultrasound (YAY!!) and normal work up. As long as everything checks out okay, I won't be seen again until 12 weeks. That's standard though.

Hi ladies,

I'm due on the 2nd of October. I had started a thread over in the pregnancy groups section, but I see you're all over here glad I found some people at last. I thought I was alone!

This is baby number three for us; my kids are 4 and 2. We've tried a long time for this baby and had a fair few losses, so I'm hoping this one sticks!!

I'm tentatively joining you all. I should be due roughly around the beginning of October. Got a faint BFP yesterday and confirmed it with a blood test today. I'm seeing a fertility specialist and he's putting me on progesterone suppositories as a precaution as my level (16) was on the low side of normal.

I m/c a little over a year ago with a blighted ovum, so I am happy but cautious. My #s look better right now though than before (progesterone was extremely low last time).

Just venting ladies!! So I'm due the 8th now as I called my ob and she gave me that date and I'll trust her word over my calculator. But I just want to vent about how stressful it is waiting until our first doctors appointments! I'm in the US and my ob won't see me until 8 weeks, not even for a blood draw. So I'm just patiently (and anxiously!) waiting and hoping everything turns out fine. I wish I could at least have a blood draw to know my levels are rising normally!! Guess I'll just have to wait tho

Congrats to all the new BFP's!!!! Welcome to the party!!! And welcome to the anxious waiting game of the first trimester, lol!!!


AFM, still no MS or sore boobs. (Thank goodness.) Though I fear the former will rear its ugly head by Feb 3rd when I'll be 6 weeks and flying to Hawaii. Bought a couple sea bands to help and am contemplating buying some MS drops for the plane rides, just in case.

I had a meltdown last night for no good reason. DH and I were lying in bed and he rolled over and tweaked my shoulder. It hurt a little but by the way I was bawling my eyes out you'd think I was stabbed! He was freaking out, "IM SO SORRY!!!" And finally I was able to say "I don't know why I'm crying!! It didn't really hurt!!!" He just started laughing and blamed it on "little Emily".

Speaking of which. I have this gut feeling it's a boy. But we would love to have a girl. For the last year of trying DH has been fixated on the name Emily. It's a pretty name but not my favorite. If this baby IS a girl, I'm thinking about letting him name her Emily so long as I can choose the middle name. And the name of our 2nd born child, hahaha!

I'm worried... I took a test on Friday afternoon and it was pretty dark...
just took one now at 7am and it seems a bit lighter
I had a Mc/cp before I got pregnant with my son, so I'm scared it's happening again :/
My periods not even due until Thursday, but from the darkness of my Friday test I was expecting it to be darker by now nearly a day and a half later :/

Saraaa, try not to be too worried. I had a CP a year ago. This time around I POAS every day for the last 2 weeks. Primarily because the first few sticks didn't get darker....

All I can say is that now entering my 5th week I can finally see the progression and only with the last 3 have they gotten noticeably darker day by day.

If your hcg is on the lower end (which it should be this early on) it takes a while to double enough for there to be huge progression on those evil pee sticks. For ex: if your levels start at 1 then by 14 dpo your levels may only be 128. But if your levels start at 5 then by 14 dpo they might be 640. Big difference, right??

As hard as it might be, put the pee sticks down for a few more days and THEN see what they say. Give it until AF is due, if you can. Of course easier said than done. Especially when I have a pee stick collection taking up my bathroom cabinet drawer.
