Symptoms seemed to have calmed down for the last two days but willing them to come back but generally tired and tender breasts and a craving for cucumber - i don't like cucumber but have eaten nearly a whole one by the end of each day!!
This is my second pregnancy and both times they have done blood test to confirm. I am still anxiously awaiting the results and oddly won't feel it's for real until I have them! My SIL has a baby 2 years ago and she went to midwives and NEVER had a blood test of any kind. I think it depends on the practice you go to.
I didn't even see a doctor! Just phoned my GP surgery and asked for an appointment with the midwife. Haven't had bloods done yet, they'll be taken next week at my booking appointment. Those will be for HIV, rubella, syphilis, checking iron levels etc. I think it's quite unusual in my area for them to do a blood test to confirm pregnancy.
Can i join? Edd march 11th. Went in for my first apt yesterday and all they did was a ee test...ultrasound on tuesday!!
Has anyone else been feeling colder than normal? Normally i am warm and now i am chilled all of the time. Other symptoms: sore breasts, cramps, lower back pain when standing, tired, increased appetire/food aversions.
RedSox, I know, I still can't believe it is real! I kind of want to tell my parents now...but then I worry bc it is so early. I am going to visit them in 3 weeks so I'm trying to decide if I want to tell them now or then...
So it's only been a few days and now I have a concern on my hands - they did my bloodwork at 11 dpo and just told me it was 55 and told me they were concerned it's low. I ovulated on CD 18 of a 32 day cycle and from what I see online this is still an okay HCG. I can't believe I am having to freak out already! Husband isn't home until Sunday and I was all excited to tell him...now feeling extremely deflated/depressed. Anyone have any positive experiences to share?
