I know how you all feel! I didn't care with DS1 or DS2 cause I never had any hassles with MCs and so I was blissfully unaware how lucky I was.
Now I am only going to be happy when I hear the heartbeat at the 7 week scan.
I called my gynae to ask when I should go for bloods but still waiting to hear. He's a fertility specialist so is pretty jacked up.
I have only done 1 test and not planning on testing again but I just want those bloods done! Feeling a little queasy in the evenings and a bit tired but no other symptoms yet. From what I remember the awful all day queasiness hits me at 6 weeks. Hoping it does so I know all is OK! But oh watch me moan when all IS ok and I am feeling crappy! Can't win ha ha
Really hoping I get MS too because of previous loss. I'm sure I will regret that wish in a few weeks if it happens!
I have only told my husband but we had a pre-planned excuse to go visit my family out of town (wedding) scheduled for next week and will tell my parents/siblings and then his parents/siblings when we get home.
We just had a miscarriage in August and conceived without a cycle in between. We are trying to be hopeful.
But it did help me decide that since we told those family members about our loss last time that I'm fine with telling them right away this time. I just want to be able to celebrate this pregnancy, and hope for it to be full term.
Welcome Classic girl and Jmx. It's amazing how many of us have experienced a MC. And now we are all aboard this thread to help each other through the 9 months ahead. I agree Jmx that I want the people close to me to know what's going on so their support is right there
Dannypop and jmx I agree too. Since I had to go the IVF route, it was easier for me to tell my close friends and family what we were going through. When I got pregnant the first time, we told those people that it had finally worked.when I miscarried, at first I felt embarrassed for having told people before the 3 month mark, but in the end, I was really happy I had, as those were the people that I needed for support after the loss. No shame in telling people and being excited from the get go
Just got my hCG back from yesterday's test. They almost tripled in 48 hours (was 122 at 3 wks 4 days and 361 at 3 wks 6 days). They said they want to see over 1000 by Tuesday. If it is looking good, then they'll book an early scan for about a week after that.
Apparently my RE's office keeps me until week 10 before releasing me back to OBGYN, even though he didn't actually do any intervention to help with this pregnancy (it happened naturally). Weird! But I don't mind, they provide close monitoring which is nice.
Woohoo ! Loving all the BFPS that have joined today !
I am feeling good today. My back is starting to hurt and my stomach is already hard and I feel huge... I heard that's normal for your second.
I can't wait to tell my mom tomorrow when I see her !
