I am so envious of all of you getting blood results. Ugh! I don't even see the doctor for another 3 weeks! If I wasn't having symptoms I think I'd probably press the issue a little, but as of now I'm love/hating my queasiness and fatigue.
Is anyone having trouble with pants? My lower abdomen is tender/sensitive and I can't wear any of my normal pants. The only acceptable ones are my mom's old fleece lounge wear! Very frustrating (and frumpy).
Is everyone feeling good and staying positive so far?
I have one more week til my appointment and I can't wait! Really hoping I can get a scan scheduled. My fiancÚ is very helpful with saying positive after having out MMC. My symptoms are strong so it's a lot easier to be positive this time!
I think I'll feel better after one more beta draw... I was totally not like this with my first pregnancy, but since the chemical/early MC I think my paranoia has increased exponentially!
What are you guys doing for Christmas? We are going to my in-laws, and we're going to pretty much have to tell them we are pregnant as I usually drink and of course will not be this time! I think that's also why I wanted to see good betas...
We are doing an early Christmas thing for my nieces and nephews at my in laws tonight since they can't be over for Christmas. Then Christmas Day I'll be going to my in laws for dinner. They all know about the pregnancy, it's my family who doesn't lol. I have to work 3-11 so I can only do one dinner so I choose his family over mine haha
qwk - so true... mel28 you might have to dish a bit!
Hi there - I'm just barely dragging myself to the computer to catch up on things. I am having such super-duty fatigue for the past several days that I'm just barely doing regular daily stuff. Even getting to the mailbox is a chore at this point. I eat, sleep, wake up in a daze, snack, daze, eat, sleep. Maybe I squeak in a shower. Ugh I am such a slug! Of course, I still have the queasiness/aversions and all the other fun stuff too.
Holidays here are simple - just me and DH and the 4 furry children. I'm pretty sure there'll be some napping going on!
qwk let us know how breaking the news goes. I won't be doing that for months (if not years) with DH's family!
Haha my family is really annoying. I love his family. His is so crazy and big. Plus I don't want to spill the beans of the pregnancy yet. When I was pregnant the first time they didn't take it well. My grandma even gave me a lecture about it. I rather wait as long as I can to tell them this time.
Hi all, not sure when labour day is as we don't have it in the UK, but can I join you? I *think* I'm due about 3rd/4th September with our surprise bump. We weren't trying for another year or so as our DD was 12 weeks early and we're a bit scared of going down that route again, so were waiting to see if they could do surgery to correct the problem and cure my high bp. If I get to any time in August I'll be over the moon, it's my dream to have a baby who I get to hold after birth, she was 11 days old last time before I held her.
Hi Dinah Congrats and I wish you the best on your pregnancy, hoping you are able to carry as long as possible!!
How is everyone? We just got back from our holiday travels. Told DH's family, they were all excited - but they kept telling people outside the family which really bothered me. It was a difficult situation to navigate because we found out my SIL is also pregnant and due in August, and THEY kept sharing their news and just tagging us onto it (e.g., "We're pregnant, and qwk's pregnant, isn't that crazy!" type of thing). Ugh. I just think that's so rude. Not your news to share!
I had to have one more beta draw today, I am hoping it's the last one. My last numbers went from 425 at 15 dpo to 869 at 16 dpo, which is great . The reason I keep having the draws is that this was my first cycle after a miscarriage, in case anyone was wondering So the one from today should be really high... and after that if the number is where it should be, I think they will want to do an ultrasound.
