Hi! i just got my bfp today after ttc for 6 months. Edd is july 27th but ill have a c section a week before. Im 11 dpo. Went in for blood 44 hcg and 28 progesterone. Makes me a little nervous because with my baby girl my numbers were always on the high side. So 44 makes me nervous but it looks to be normal. Hopefully my numbers will double on thursday!

Hi Heather! Congratultions! We tried for 5 months this time. It felt like an eternity as my other 2 were conceived right away.

My HCG was 46 at 11dpo. I was not at all worried with that number.

I'll pop you down for 27th July. Do you want me to put down a gender guess for you as well?

Okay well that didn't go as good as I hoped. There is a gestational sac but no fetal pole. Sac is measuring 5w1d so its to be expected not to see fetal pole and it's also possible I'm only 5w because I really have no clue how far along I am...Last af was Sept 15th, I normally O between cd 23-27...I'm not sure how to figure all of those dates out...so now I'm in the waiting game too. I see the high risk specialists tomorrow and they will get all my blood work and testing done and probably do their own ultrasound so I'll update more then.

Going by those dates you should be between 6-7w along. But do you know for sure that you ovulated between those dates? Maybe you didn't this time?

I have everything crossed for a positive outcome

Thanks Buffy...I thought I would be at least 6 weeks but it's still possible to be 5. Especially if I O'd even later than normal. They did give me a due date of July 16th (which is my birthday) so I hope this little one sticks

tori and four, I'm very hopeful for you two that you are just earlier than you thought you were! That can happen super easily as our bodies just aren't predictable all the time and there are so many different factors at play, like late ovulation or late implantation. Will be stalking for updates xx

Welcome heather!

I felt a bit nauseous this morning when I smelled some breakfast food someone else had cooked at my mom's group. Other than that, absolutely zero symptoms. Time is dragging.

Oh man, Tori and four2five, I am sorry you guys didn't get clear answers today! I am sure the next days (or weeks) will be anxious ones, but try to embrace your husbands' optimism, too. Fingers, toes, and everything else crossed for you both!

I had bloods done today. My HCG is at 3761. According to my dates, I'm 5 weeks on the button...

It seems to be within the range, but I'm nervous now, as if it doubles in 48 hours...that'll put me well over my 5 mark range!

My cousin joked that it's twins...which would not be funny as I already have 3 boys!!

Even though my partner and I would LOVE 2 more, I'd rather take them one at a time!

I go in for an appointment with my OB tomorrow, but I've already booked in with a Midwife for the 30th of November.

I've never had a Midwife before because I've had fairly high risk pregnancies (lots of losses), so hoping my OB can transfer my care over no problem to the Midwives, and I'll have a chance of having a home birth of my dreams!!

I'm feeling great, aside from some nausea the other morning before I had eaten anything, but I did have coffee... a banana fixed it right away!
Note to self...remember to eat something in the AM!!

Hope you lovelies are doing great.

That's great! Someone in here will have twins. It may very well be you
