She started me on progesterone, and probably only because I was persistent that I didn't want to risk losing the baby due to low progesterone levels if that was the only reason it wasn't considered viable...as that IS fixable...keeping my fingers and toes crossed and praying like crazy that my HCG levele come back doubled on Thursday. On the bright side I've got all the classic symptoms, other than the fact that I haven't thrown up yet, just nauseous 24/7.

How is everyone else doing tonight? By the way, feel free to call me Meg.
Hi Meg- I also had my lab results today & my hcg was 76, which my nurse said is within the normal range for being 4 weeks along-so your numbers also are within normal. I also have followup blood work & will get results on Thursday. Fingers crossed that you & I also get the good news we're waiting for on Thursday!

Thanks Myra, that makes me feel a little bit better, my pregnancy with my daughter was much easier because I was clueless, but multiple m/c and a chemical have made me a lot more worried. I don't think I even found out my levels at all with my daughter.

Meg/Myra, really crossing my fingers for you both on Thursday. In the uk I don't think they check hcg levels at all. Or maybe they do if you're higher risk? Anyway, good luck, let us know how you get on tomorrow xx

Congrats to all the other joiners! I know we are all in very early days but wishing health and happiness to all of you

Meg- if it puts your mind at ease more, my acupuncturist also said my hcg looks great for being 4 weeks & our numbers fall well within the guidelines set by American Pregnancy Assoc. They also state on their site that the change in level (doubling) is more important than the actual number since there are so many factors that go into the hcg level.

Simmy, I've been hearing the same thing from others in the UK that hcg is not done as a standard procedure. I'm not sure if my doc does it as standard or if its because I had a loss. Either way, I'm feeling good about this little one.

I'm looking forward to the journey over the next 9 months with the rest of you ladies!! It already puts me at ease a bit more to come on here when I start worrying about all the possible what ifs. Here's hoping for healthy & happy for us all!

Had my first doc appointment today, nothing happened really. Gave me a flu jab, weighed me and filled in a form that I handed into reception that goes to my midwife.

Thought I might have had bloods taken but it seems the midwife will do that.

What's everyone else's experiences do far?

I've not had any appointments so far this time mislissa, but last time the doctor's appointment was very underwhelming as they don't really do much! At the booking appointment with the midwife they'll take your bloods and chat with you for an hour or two, go through all yours and your partner's medical history, etc, etc.

How's everyone today? My belly is huge already!! sounds crazy, but i was just reading on babycentre that your uterus never shrinks fully after the first baby so it just pops out with the second. but really, at 4 weeks pg?? nuts!
