Hi everyone! I'm excited to join you! I'm 32 and DH is 33 and we're expecting our first. We did IVF after 2 years of unexplained infertility and our first shot worked! I'm still so scared every day... and like Tee I miss my every two week scans with RE. BUT it's great to be "normal" now
AFM my symptoms aren't too bad - just nauseous and no appetite at night and kinda wasted all day but not too bad. I keep waiting for things to get worse...
I wish my appetite was a little less ravenous. I feel starving ALL the time but nothing sounds good. I'm eating a steamers bag of veggies with cheese sauce. YUM and I think I might have some cake after LOL
I LOVE the name Flynn. Flynn Timmons just has a really good ring to it!
Hello! I'm due May 20th, so excited! I had a miscarriage last year, so I'm keeping fingers and toes crossed that all goes well and that everything looks as it should at my first u/s on the 28th of this month.
I'm 33, and the hubby is 28. We've been working on the baby for about a year and a half around his deployments and my PCOS, so all in all, not too bad :-). We just moved out to Oregon (where he's from) after his military commitment was up.
I'm about to go back and read everyone's posts, but have we already compared symptoms? I cannot believe how TIRED I am all the time!
TZ - I was constantly starving in the night in my first trimester. I had cereal at like 3 in the morning loads of times! I still have to have a bowl before bed now and then another no longer than half an hour after I get up!
Yay for buying the first purchase! Our first purchase was the day of the 12 week scan and we bought little romper suits saying "i love my mummy and daddy". I bought my first maternity coat the other day - got it from eBay and it was only £39!
Hi everyone. Had my first OB apt today and it was kinda a big letdown. Doc is nice and all but just kinda clueless. We just did a boobie exam and she listened to my lungs and heart and asked a million questions about family history. We will see some other random OB next apt and another random one after that... I'm used to university mass healthcare as I've been working or in school for so long but when you have to repeat your whole life story every time when all you want them to do is check out your baby is kinda blah. They also ordered a million blood tests and I asked if they were covered. She said yes but I see in the packet that they gave us that a few aren't so I wrote a kinda bitchy message saying to cancel any. We're talking about almost 1000 $ for random genetic things that we aren't really that worried about.
She didn't do pelvic exam or pap because I am still on progesterone and thought that might mess things up. I don't think I want a pap anyway right now... Any idea if this actually matters in pregnancy? If I have abnormal cells which I have had in the past I am not going to do anything about it until I am not pregnant anyway...
Sorry for long rant. Just miss being the princess
UPDATE doc took away tests that weren't covered after I messaged her
That's a good question about the pap/progesterone. I have my pap/ first u/s scheduled for 28 Oct, I'll be 11 weeks and still on progesterone. Hmm, if no one seems to know by then, I'll see what she says and will get back to you~
I feel like I am the ONLY IVF'er that isn't on Progesterone anymore. It's scares me. I still have no idea why I was taken off at 7 Weeks.
My first OB appointment was exactly the same Qwerty, but I go the full thing. LOL I always get so scared of the Pap results, because you really just have no idea what your body is doing. But everything came back great. Also, I had all my files and lab results sent over to my OB from my RE. So I don't have to do anymore blood work. WHAOO
