Labor Day Laborers - August/September 2014 Crossover Babies!
I'm due right at the end of August but expect to run into September. I'm 40 (but look 30, of course ) and this is our first!
We'd been TTC for 6 cycles following a surprise pregnancy/mc earlier this year. DH and I have been together 15 years.
I was an ICU nurse but gave it up to start a family (since timing is tight). This pregnancy/baby stuff is completely and totally foreign!
I am 3 weeks 3 days (11dpo) today and have a heap of symptoms, but they come and go and aren't that bad yet. My first BFP was on 8dpo.
Anyone care to join me? Looking for some fun and goofy buddies to compare notes and share the journey!
Forgot to actually add info to that last post. I'm so darned tired! A combo of nausea/insomnia wakes me up in the middle of the nights and I think I'm going batty!
This past week was a bit worrisome as my AF-shouldn't-show date approached. I had very uncomfortable cramps, lower back pain (a lot), my BB tenderness abated (worrisome), and a smidge of a peach/tan eggwhite CM. But now I'm 1-2 days past that and doing much better... except I can't eat hardly anything. Nothing sounds good and when I taste foods they are gross. The only things I have a daily tolerance for are super salty soup broth and a crunchy taco supreme from Taco Bell!
Has anyone else gotten their BFP to put them into the super late Aug/early Sept category? Are you having symptoms? It worried me when my BB tenderness went away a few days ago so I POAS till my tests were gone and fortunately each day got noticeably darker. Tenderness is now back, almost bordering on sore.
Being this is my first I'm sure everything is being analyzed far beyond reason but it's the only thing I know to do. I've been up for 2 1/2 hours now (2-4:30am), so hoping to go back to bed an actually get some sleep!
Hey hon, I thought I'd say hi! I came over here just checking to see if the September thread had been started yet (I don't think I have the wherewithal to be the starter of that thread myself ) Based on my O date, I'm due August 31, 2014. I haven't even put a ticker up yet as it's sooo new, just found out yesterday
But I'm in the same boat as you - I'm hesitant to join the August thread as I don't want to be behind everyone lol, so I'll probably join the September thread too
AFM I have a 2 year old son and I just had an early miscarriage in November, which has made me super cautious about this pregnancy. I've already had a beta draw (yesterday) that I should get results from today... I want to watch the numbers double darnit! I'm 30 (and look 20? haha well probably not..).
Symptom-wise, well.. I didn't get much with my son until 5-6 weeks. So far I'd say my boobs look fuller, I have had notably more nausea than I did with my son (nothing crazy or any throwing up, but I've noticed it numerous times and I don't think I had it with my first pregnancy until like 5.5 weeks), but fewer headaches I would try not to worry about the boob soreness waxing and waning, I know I personally didn't have that until closer to 6 weeks the first time I think. I also had spotting last time around, think it was right around 5 weeks. And everything was obviously fine
I did wake up today STARVING this morning like to the point of it being painful and I couldn't fall back asleep, had to get something to eat!
Wow sorry this ended up being super long! Nice to meet you!
Hi qwk - congratulations! So how far along are you, around 12-13 dpo?
I'm excited - finally someone to join me! I joined Aug, and will also do September, but I just feel so lost on those bigger threads like I can't really connect with anyone. It's like a news ticker the way the posts come in.
Thanks for the info on your past pregnancy symptoms. That is really helpful.
Re the mc, I hate how having had one tends to make us paranoid (with good reason, but still). It would be nice to be blissfully ignorant the whole time! You turned it right around timing-wise though. Was this your first cycle post mc?
I am not due for my first appt until Jan 9th, so no labs to go on. My doc thinks I'm gonna have no trouble. If symptoms are any indication, I'm doing just fine.
It was a long night. Yesterday evening I got cold to my core - just could not warm up. Then, it flipped the other way and I was on fire. This was accompanied by a fast, thumping heart beat so I knew it probably had to do with progesterone. I woke up at 3:30 with a pretty strong bout of nausea (beyond queasy) and all my insides felt funny, and of course the THUMP, THUMP, THUMP - which kept me awake till 6. I did get a couple more hours of sleep but woke up and noticed my nipples were sensitive. I looked and it's like my areolas grew by 50% overnight and they're bright red! I've got rudolph boobs!
Still queasy and I feel all sorts of stretch/pull/pinch sensations in my lower abdomen. My morning tea (decaf) is making my mouth water in a bad way. Apparently I got a pass from nausea for the last few days, but now at 4wk3day (18dpo) it's back.
Well this got long in a hurry. Let me know how your labs turn out! And what did you end up eating (I can only fantasize at the moment).
I am waiting on my beta test results as well, and of course it's the weekend, so now I have to wait until Monday but that's okay. My first beta test was 25 @ 3 weeks, 6 days; but from ovulation I was only 3 weeks, 4 days. So we will see what they are on Monday.
