oh and you can create your own pregnancy ticker(see mine below) at https://global.thebump.com/ and just copy and paste to code to your signature after. Voila!

Nice to see you all! I had my hcg checked today. Going to call a bit later for the results. I actually am trained to do scans so it's going to kill me not to scan myself every 5 minutes!

Wow! How infuriating!!! Took my doc three freaking days to tell me. but I got an email from the lab later that same day saying it was ready... Buuuuut of course they wouldn't release it to me. Insanity.

Ah dogmom that sucks. The lab I did my tests at have an online database you can sign up for, so I could view the results as soon as they were done. Does yours have anything like that? Hopefully your doc tells you soon!

I went to my first midwife appointment today - she's an older British lady and I like her already haha. Anyways, she gave me a ton of papers and information. She was talking about pre genetic screening for Down syndrome etc - did any of you ladies do that? I don't think DH and I are going to. We'd have the baby either way, and apparently there's nothing preventative you can do if you know - plus I guess the false positive rates can be really high. Don't think I want the stress of that??

Can I go here? I think technically based on O my EDD will be 5/31 but I want to be with you guys, ladders and Sander! Hopefully no one minds.

I have been trying to put down the pee sticks. I am freaking out today because my pregnancy symptoms are few and fleeting. A little morning nausea. After my losses I am so paranoid and I keep remembering how sick I was with DD. But I'm only 5w today so it's still early and I know every pregnancy is different. My first appointment is 2 weeks from today.

Sander, we did the genetic screening with the blood draw (Harmony or Panorama, I can't remember) 1st tri. I will definitely be doing it again.

I'm 38 so I'm considered "advanced maternal age." I do plan to have all the screenings~ largely for me to educate myself and be prepared as possible for the care of a baby if it has special needs. I personally think knowledge is power and can only be of a benefit to have a head start on any potential issues. Definitely can't prevent it.. but that's just my own thoughts!

I'm the same actually. My EDD is 5/31 but I'm staying with the June ladies because I am just getting started and the May ladies have been going all month. So we are due date buddies!

I've been trying to stay away from the pee sticks too I took one every day until 18dpo .. took a few days break.. and then took one yesterday I know it's not going to change anything but provides a glimmer of positivity!


************

As for me~ my first ultrasound is scheduled for Thursday REALLY hope it goes well and that I can see the heartbeat. It's a bit nerve wracking after just getting over a loss. I will be 6 weeks on the dot so I know it's still borderline early. I saw the heartbeat at 5w6d with two of my kids and then 6w with my last baby~ SO I am hopeful but trying to be prepared if it's too soon!

Yay curious join us! Don't worry my doc puts my EDD at May 26 but I know that can't be right. Glad you're with us!!

Nice to hear you have such an early ultrasound Holly! Hope everything goes great! Mine is still like 2.5 weeks from now - feels so long haha

Thanks for all the opinions on the screening's. I'll talk to DH about it, but I personally can get so easily stressed out and anxious I can't help but feel if I were to know it would almost cause more harm than good. But that's just me - I know a ton of people who feel better with doing the screening so they can be better prepared

Oh and Curious I wanted to mention too I'm not feeling much in the way of symptoms either and I'm 4+5, but everything seems fine so I'm hoping maybe we're just lucky
