Ah, yes. The gas. I was telling my mom on the phone today that pregnancy is actually quite gross. LOL I'm not expecting to have any of that 'glow' around me.
It seems my mom has told the extended clan I'm expecting (though I told her to only tell immediate family....mothers...ha ha) and my aunt who is a doctor thinks I should be referred to a specialist because of my history. I was hoping to ignore everything and just see my doctor at 12 weeks like usual but now I'm going to see him right away and hopes he refers me. After my m/c he said he wanted to refer me to a specialist once I got pregnant again. I find doctors usually forget things like this and don't follow through when you remind them but I think it might be nice to have a specialist look after me and not just my gp (here GPs look after you until about 30 weeks and then you see an OBYN).
ETA Starry Night abnd Queenbee, good luck to you both. The first weeks can be nerve wracking!
No nausea for me yet. Didn't have any with #1 so I'm hoping to be lucky this time too. The main thing for me is twinges and aching in the uterus area. Its a little uncomfortable but as others have said, I like it because its different and reasuring.
mlyn - wow, it looks like you're going to have your little ones close in age! I've always liked the idea of kids being close in age. It didn't work out that way for me though I guess 2 1/2 years is still somewhat close...
queenbee - I'm in Canada and in a very rural area. There isn't as much available here. But I will try to remind the doctor of what he said after my m/c. Even if I don't need to see a specialist this time around it could be very reassuring.
Wasn't quite expecting to be here for another 6 months at least but ... Surprise! BFP last week and it still feels very unreal! Uncertain about exact dates (was experiencing irregularity after coming off the pill in December) but we think we are due the first week in December! Seemed to have had more symptoms before I found out (slight nausea, fatigue, etc) but all seemed to have disappeared since, which is a little unnerving! We have a rec for an early scan to get our dates more precise. Hoping we can get in this week!
Happy and Healthy 9 months to you beautiful ladies!
Starry Night, we took 3 years to conceive my son with 2 losses and I now have only one tube due to the ectopic pregnancy. So we didn't want to hang around and thought it would take us ages again. Conceived on our second cycle of trying. Small age gap will be tough I think but well worth it. Yours is small too in my opinion. Hopefully our children will grow up being v close as there is a 9 year and 5 year ag gap between me and my brother and sister and I wanted a closer one for Isaac.Fingers crossed wll our bubbas stick and grow big and strong x
