Hey Jess! So nice to hear from you again! Looking forward to sharing this together again!
Morning ladies (well morning here on the west side of the pond, I guess it is afternoon to all my friends on the east side!)
So, I went for bloodwork yesterday and they were not much help there either! I get the results this morning! She said, depending on what the results show, I may or may not have to go back for more bloods tomorrow. If they are low, I go back, if they are higher then I wont. If I don't go back, she said she will then book me for a 6 week appt.... I did not have a 6 wk appt with my last pregnancy, I am wondering if this is because I have had a previous loss. I am not going to lie, I don't really want an ultrasound at 6 weeks, because it is unlikely to see the heartbeat at that age, and then I will just stress out. I would rather wait until 8 weeks when I will see it for sure...
As for symptoms, I am hoping not to get nauseous too (obviously). I am a teacher so I would have a very rough time, running to the washroom which is WAY at the other end of the hall and leaving 22 students on their own! I have light, light cramping still. Boobs are still not as sore as I expect them to be (I remember last time them hurting so much, but I think it started around 5 weeks...) They are tender now, but not really sore.
So we weren't going to tell parents, but I caved and told my mom. Her and I are really close, so it is ok. Hubby told his Mom. I told my bff.
OK Ladies, it has started...my worrying! I need a little reassurance...I went to my primary physician this morning so they could confirm and give me a referral to my OB. I POAS and it came back positive, but the line was fairly light.
Some things to note: This was not FMU, I had pee'd around 6:30 this morning and my appointment was at 8:30am. I also do not pee very often, so I drank 1/4 a bottle of water, knowing I was going to have to POAS for them.
I guess because I got a faint positive on Friday 4/27 and then a positive digi on 4/28, I expected my levels to have doubled and the line to be darker...
The nurse did not seem concerned, she didn't order blood work or anything. Just said the line was light, but there, and asked how late my period is (it was due yesterday).
