I've only seen my midwife once for a booking in appointment, I'm not seeing her again for another two weeks and it's 3 weeks till my scan... Counting down worse then counting for Christmas.

I really want a Doppler but my boyfriend and mum have said no because I suffer anxiety and they think it will only make me worse =[ I really want one though. Lol

My boobs are huge and so painful, I can't run or jog anywhere and trying to lie cuddling my boyfriend last night my boobs were so painful.
My bras are now really abit too small but I'm reluctant to buy a new one and then a new one again in a few weeks. Anyone any ideas on what I should do please??

Feeling very lonely already as my boyfriend has gone away for a week and I'm in the house alone, I'm trying to be productive when I get home from work but all I really want to do is go to bed....

Hope everyone is all okiee

Xxxxxxx
Progesterone is a hormone produced by your body (actually the corpus luteum) after ovulation, and as long as it's producing it AF stays away. it's necessary for fetal development as far as i know, and contributes to a lot of PMS symptoms. Some women have a luteal phase defect where they have a short luteal phase where the egg can't implant before af starts, or the corpus luteum doesn't produce enough progesterone to sustain the pregnancy... usually doctors want to see a level of at least 10-15. My 2nd chemical i had 11. I was prescribed a progesterone suppl. This time it was in the 70's at the same point in the cycle, thanks to supplements. (This is just a summary of what i've been told and have read- so don't look at it as medical advice! haha)

I have horrible anxiety too as far as pregnancy goes. It's driving dh mad- but the nurse educator at my ob's office said she wouldn't discourage me from getting a doppler since i constantly worry if the baby is still alive.

My next scan (12+5) isn't until July 7- seems like forever away! It's been 5 days since my last, and I'm already scared of a MMC!

Dawnyybus, I'll be taking progestrone shots to help keep baby in longer. I had a preterm with my first and they're trying to avoid another You don't need to worry!

I'm not sure why she did an internal exam I was thinking it was because I also had my annual Pap smear as well? But all she said when she was up there was "we'll you definitely feel pregnant" lol and then wanted a dating ultrasound so I don't know if it was a good thing or bad thing? Can they tell how far along you are by just feeling? Because the nurse I had to book the ultrasound with asked me if she felt I was the 8 weeks and I said she didn't say

Wish me luck please jellybeans!

I have an amazing 3 year old, and have been with my DH for 11 years - married for 4 (yeah, got married with a 5 month bump...classy!)

I've been trying to catch up on this thread...only up to p.164 so far!
Welcome to the Jellybeans! Can't wait to see scan pics!

Don't know if its true or not but comforting all the same. Gender aside, I just really want to make it to the first scan to know everythings ok in there. Got fairly strong symptoms so I think somethings going on, I hope!
I'm so sorry for your loss I hope you have a super sticky Jellybean!

I have no idea, I mean, the cervix feels different I guess when pregnant, but I didn't think anyone should be feeling that far up there this early on incase they irritated something or disrupted the membranes!? I doubt anyone can tell how far along you are just by feeling up there! We don't have smear tests when pregnant here either it's so odd how things vary!

I got a scan on one of those portable scanners and my little jellybean is measuring 8 weeks and 4 days. Need to adjust my ticker when I can get on the laptop. Ill upload photo once on the laptop too xx
Sorry you had a scare today! It seems like your scan went well, so did they tell you what might be going on?
they think the pains at the top of my stomach are a pulled muscle from all the dry heaving im doing and the bottom could be my inner section scar stretching.

hey hun so so sorry for your loss but i am with you on your beliefs that when one person goes another joins. we had that happen with DS1... DH's grandad was very ill when we found out i was pregnant.. we took our 7 week scan pic to him and he held it in his hand. he passed a few days later and then we found out we were having a boy.
