Hi Alligator, sorry to hear about your loss, and congrats on making it to 9 weeks! I'm sure passing that 8 week milestone was joyous for you and DH!

I showed DH a video this morning that goes over the first 9 weeks of pregnancy in like 2 minutes (we both have short attention spans so this was perfect). It was pretty cool, then he asked what week we were on and I told home 4 1/2 to which he responded, "it's going too slow," lol! We just confirmed with beta on Thur, so not even a week ago and he's so anxious to get through this 1st tri. We are both worried about miscarriage.

My mom is so excited, like more than we are. DH and I both have so many fears I'm afraid it'll keep us from being excited. I saw my mom the day after I told her and she said she was so excited for us she couldn't sleep. She's so cute, and I guess at least someone is uncautiously excited for us!

Sounds like we're about the same! By my calculations, I'm about 4 and half weeks pregnant too, AND my blood was drawn Tuesday and Thursday of last week to confirm it

Congrats Alligator! That must be such a relief to see that little heartbeat! I’m sorry the MS has been so rough. I hope you start feeling better soon!

Angela - So funny about faking a hangover! I’m sure people will still have their suspicions! I will just be hitting the 6 week mark around Christmas - hopefully MS will hold off! My mom had terrible MS but my aunt said she had none with all 3 of her pregnancies.

MK - your mom sounds so cute! My mom is such a pessimist...she’s like, “you aren’t going to announce until after the first trimester, right?” Duh. There’s a difference between “announcing” and telling a few of the people closest to you who have known you have been going through IVF. My mom had a very rough childhood and sometimes I think she just can’t let herself get really happy / excited about anything. She also suffers from chronic depression. I love her dearly but she’s a negative Nancy!

That is sweet MKaykes that your mum is super excited. DH and I are the same as you guys worried about having an MC thats why I cant tell my mum as she cant hold her own water, even if I tell her to keep it secret she will still tell absolutely everybody that she knows and tell them to keep it quiet though and not tell anyone else and let on to me that they know xx

Hellojello it looks like there is alot of us on here around the same time which is great

Ask4joy I will be dead on 7wks on xmas day so if I get MS it should be in full swing by then xx

Waiting for the first ultrasound seems like such a long wait. My OB appt is in a week but I don't know if they will do one at 6w.

Angela they will probably take your vitals, do bloods, have you provide a urine sample to check pregnancy and maybe an ultrasound. I had one at my first appointment at 6 weeks but it was because I'm prone to early losses. Nothing better than seeing that little flickering heartbeat... really makes you know that all the sickness you're going through is worth it xx

Alligator I think Im going to be the same as you just worrying all the way through Ive read some statistics though that state that if the HB is present and healthy then your risk of MC is greatly reduced almost to the level of being in your 2nd tri I hope that offers some reassurance xx

Starlight keep us posted how your OB Appt goes and if the do do a scan xx

Lilmisscaviar they wont be doing a scan as thats on the 28th but at my midwife appt I think they do take urine and blood as with the appt letter it came with a booklet about tests they do to check for stuff in relation to the baby xx

I am just worrying every slight twinge and pain I feel Im worrying I just want to see a HB on 28th, does anybody else get twinges/sharp pains they dont happen all the tome just every so often and dont last long but they do worry me xx

Hcg today at 9dp5dt (more like 8.5dp5dt) was 76. Nurse said it’s good but I’ve done some reading and it seems a little lower than average. 2nd Beta Friday. So hard not to worry.
