I spent all morning trying to get a doctors office to do blood work for me and no one wants to do it because I am not their "patient". It seriously sucks. Apparently I cannot even go into urgent care because they don;'t do that there...so only option I have now is to POAS until Oct 1, which is when I was able to book for a dr.
I would like to join, I posted my BFP announcement in the corresponding folder, though no one has commented yet. It's almost surreal though, everyone told me that it would be a while before I could get pregnant...hmmm...well, looks like I am due June 4th! Let's pray this one is a sticky bean and is a girl...
desi - Yes! My sense of smell has definitely increased. I slept with an air freshener next to me last night lol. There was nothing even in here but I swore something smelled and it was driving me crazy.
Congrats, poysenivye! I'll add you to the list now
Glad to hear you were able to get in for a blood draw, desi! Hope you get great results.
It took me 3 days and 3 calls to finally get an early ultrasound scheduled. My doctor wanted me to come in for one around 7 weeks but I'll be in Europe at that time. I don't want to travel without knowing all looks good so I told them I needed to get in the week before I leave. The receptionists kept telling me my doctor was booked that week (not sure why that matters since I wouldn't be seeing her anyway, just a tech) so they'd have to talk to the nurse and call back. No one called back so I finally called the nurse directly today and she called back within an hour and got me scheduled. They don't think I need to do betas unless I have any bleeding or pain.
Not much in the way of symptoms yet. Just a little nausea here and there, but not bad or often.
Glad you found someone, desi! I hope your results come back with good numbers tomorrow.
foreternity, when is your scan booked for? Glad you got it worked out. My doctor was going to let me come in as early as 5w6d but I had some willpower and asked for later that week. I wanna hopefully make sure we get to see a heartbeat.
This is so exciting starting a June month. I always thought this would be a great time to have a baby. My boys are December & February babes so I'm more than done with winter newborns and being 9 months pregnant in the coldest months! June's not too hot (where I live anyway) and I'm hoping that having a late spring/early summer baby will get me out moving a bit faster.
So a bit about me I guess: DH and I are both 27; I had my boys when I was 22 & 24 so to be 28 with #3 is a bit weird to me but we weren't quite ready to have three back-to-backs. Most of my friends are only just hopping on the baby bandwagon now! I had an early miscarriage (6 weeks) the first time I got pregnant, then 2 weeks later, my eldest was conceived. #2 son took 3 months and this one happened 2 weeks after getting my IUD out. Hoping it all goes well as having experienced a miscarriage before, I'm naturally cautiously optimistic.
I always thought the ideal time to have a baby would be around October. You're in the first trimester in winter so it's not too bad and then your second trimester is in summer so you're not all huge and miserable. Then it's cool out in fall when you're the biggest. It gets above 100 degress here in summer so I'd be lying if I said I was looking forward to being big and pregnant and miserable then lol. I already despise hot weather. All worth it though
