Hi mamas! I know it is early, but I wanted to start an October thread as those BFP's start rolling in. My estimated due date is October 2nd, but that is just through an online calculator. I will have my first appointment in a few weeks and can update my due date if need be then.
I feel so much better today! Yesterday I was so tired and my head was hurting, but today I don't have either of those things. My super smell is kicking in as well. I am a high school teacher and there are many smells working with teenagers all day so I'm hoping the super smell doesn't lead to morning sickness!
I've been through first trimester twice before and didn't have morning sickness with either of those pregnancies so I'm hoping and praying this one is the same. It's still so early it's hard to say.
Are you ladies getting any blood work done to check HCG levels? I did in my other two pregnancies but I have switched doctors and I'm not sure if she will check them or not. I sent her a message so I hope she will order them. My tests seem to be darkening up well, but my line is still not as dark as my control line so I'm a little paranoid.
Lindsayms05, I'm with you there! Definitely paranoid. My lines are getting darker but very slowly (in my opinion). Lines are still not as dark as the control.
I asked for a beta hcg from my midwife. I got it done at 12 dpo and it was 123.8, which I think is pretty decent. I go for my second draw tonight and I am 16 dpo today so I'm hoping to see a 490-500. We will see!! Do you know your past hcg levels from previous pregnancies?
Been cramping a bit yesterday and today. Couldn't sleep last night.... but other than that, I feel normal. I almost rather not feel normal to ease my anxiety a bit, hahaha.
