sunshine- its not unreasonable to me to be overly cautious and nervous given your past loss. Its great that you saw 3+ on the digital! I think MS is most common to kick in around 5-6 weeks, if you get it at all, so i'm sure that is coming down the road. As for working out, like you said, its good to maintain the level you were at before getting pregnant. The thing I heard was that you need to be able to still talk outloud through your workouts. If you can't talk, you aren't getting enough oxygen which means baby isn't getting enough. But if you can still talk (read: you aren't breathless) than you should be fine.

slammerkin- with my first pregnancy i was so anxious to start feeling sick because like you said, it helps reassure you. But having been through that before, this time around I'm trying not take for granted the days left of feeling good how long did it last for you in your previous pregnancy?

momstastic- that is amazing news!! congratulations!

danser- hope the dizziness goes away soon for you and you are able to get some rest

Van- you actually want to see doubling in 48-72 hours so you are right on track

Thorpedo- yay for your first appointment set up! glad you are getting a break from getting sick

I got all the new ladies added. There were a couple that had commented before that I added yesterday but I guess forgot to hit "save"..sorry about that! Please let me know if I missed you because it wasn't done on purpose!

AFM, nausea was in full force last night but not to the point of getting sick. I am finding low sodium peanut butter is the trick to keeping it away for me. A spoonful or two and it eases up for a bit! Got a call about 15 minutes ago from my doctors office. I had some blood work and a urine culture done last week. My culture came back already GBS positive...sigh. I had it last time around but it didn't show until later on. She said that because its already showing, they are going to treat me with a round of antibiotics now and of course during labor. I was hoping to labor at home longer this time (last time I went in when I was a 5 I think and was 8 hours in the hospital laboring) and be IV free but oh well. What's most important is that baby is protected when they are born.

Kksy9b I've been missed off the list Hun for 5th. My friend has been GBS positive for her last 2 pregnancies. I never even heard of it until she told me about it. Wish we could be automatically tested for it here! Am I right in thinking it can come and go though?!

I've been feeling absolutely exhausted these last couple of days and lots of headaches too. Slight bit of nausea but I'm expecting it to hit me full on next week if my other 2 pregnancies are anything to go by!

So my doubling time has dropped from 38hrs to 65hrs. That doesn't sound good although I've read that it slows down once you get past the point I'm at. So who knows!
Yes its good HCG doesnt just double in 48 hours, it can take up to 72

Kksy9b I can't remember exactly how long it lasted but I think it was well into the second trimester. Early-mid pregnancy sucked so much. I know most women enjoy the second tri the most, but i was still nauseated and had bad back pain. Third tri was the best for me!

How about flax seeds? It's a good source of b6 Helps with nausea .. I am glad they caught the gbs now.. Good to get that sorted early xo

Thanks, it's just the drop in how long it's taking to double I don't like!

After so many losses it's sometimes hard to have hope!

I'm so tired. No nausea today, even though I had nausea the last several days, which made me really nervous. But my boobs are still REALLY sore so that is a little reassuring. Strongly considering picking up another test just to ease my mind! Can't go today because the roofers are coming to finish our house and I have to be here, and I can't go to the local store because the town is so small that my students work there, and they keep the tests locked up. So I def don't want to get that rumor started now!

Momtastic - that's great!!


Vankiwi - what did your doctor say about the numbers?


kksy - what is GBS?

Angel I haven't spoken to the docs yet. I don't see my FS until my scan on the 18th.

GBS is Group B Strep.

Mind if I join?

Due date is January 13 based on ovulation (I tracked using OPKs and temping) and I have my first official doctor appointment Monday 05/16 when I will be 5w3d, I'm so nervous as I had super early miscarriage in December. Had bloods drawn last week and so far things are progressing much better than last time.

So excited to join y'all!
