I found out last week that I'm pregnant but was so afraid I would jinx it and decided to wait until AF was due, which was today. So here I am no spotting, no wild cramps or such .
I must say I still am not confident and I'm sure I won't be, until I hold my rainbow in my arms.
So, I am looking for people who are due May 2014, to share our progress, symptoms, worries, scans, bumps and everything else that comes with being pregnant at 35+
A little about me: I'm Ece, from Turkey, 36. Last October I've married the love of my life (literally! we were together for 17 years). We started TTC in January and got pregnant right away. So imagine our surprise!
Sadly we learnt at 7+5 scan that our baby did not develop past 6 weeks . I had to have a d&c and learnt 1 week later that it was a suspected partial molar pregnancy.
My HCG took almost 10 weeks to reach negative and we waited 3 months after that to start TTC again. Well, I fell pregnant on first month again and scared as hell as I've learnt it the hard way that the important thing is not to get pregnant but stay pregnant!
I'm 40 years old. We just tested positive last weekend. This is our 2nd BFP since our miscarriage this past June 2013. We have a one year old son. I'm hoping everything is going well, but I haven't contacted my obgyn yet. My doc's office doesn't do prenatal appointments before 8 weeks. Good luck to you, and hope all continues to be good for you.
Congratulations on your BFP. Hope we both have sticky beans. I didn't contact my OB either and infact I'm looking for a new one since the previous is very far and I'm worried I can't reach him in cases of emergency.
I've narrowed the list to a couple of names and I think I'll call one of them on Monday. I don't know when they will book an appointment but I guess it will be around 6-7 weeks.
So do you have any symptoms already? It seems I only have very mild nausea that comes and goes and my boobs are starting to get a little bigger if you examine very carefully . Other than those, the only proof to my pregnancy are my +HPTs
No major symptons yet except sleepy and starting to have to pee alot. I didn't have any morning sickness with our son. The worst sympton I had was nasal congestion in my 2nd trimester!! I hope I get to skip that one this time. I'm trying to be nonchalent about this pregnancy until we can see a doctor. I'm paranoid about miscarrying but I feel positive because I was already taking 800mg of folic acid.
Adelicia - Hello & congratulations, both on your BFP and your birthday! I turned 36, in June too
Havmercy - How are you?
I had my first scan yesterday and the doctor eliminated the 2 things I feared most: complete molar and ectopic. There was only the gestational sac and a clear, round yolk sac. He said the GS measured 6 weeks which is not at all possible, since we even didn't have intercourse that early. We didn't see the heartbeat yet, but I can be at most 5+4 so I guess it can be early for that. He called in for another scan on Wednesday to see if the heart starts beating. But I think I'll wait until the other week to be sure, since I'll be around the 7 week mark then!
OK, I think it's time I actually put this in writing: I got my BFP last week!
DH and I are both 38, and we have been TTC for our first for 11 months. And then last week it finally happened: two pink lines!!! So of course I had to do a few more, and over the next 9 days I got another 6 BFPs (just had to completely sure )
I went to see the doctor on Friday, and she's booked me another appointment in 4 weeks to get things moving with the midwife and scans (this is the UK, so you don't get beta tests or anything else unless you pay for them).
I'm still in shock, and as my only symptoms are sore bbs (especially my nipples) and occasional bloating, I keep having to remind myself that I am very probably a little bit pregnant! Please let it be a sticky bean!
I think I'm 5 weeks + 2 days, and EDD is 9 May 2014. Might think about a ticker in a few weeks, but not yet.
I understand you trying to be cautious and continuously doing hpts, postponing tickers and such. Believe me I was there couple of weeks ago!
I had beta's because I was afraid my hpt's weren't getting darker as they should be! But it turned out they were rising quite a bit, which made me even more anxious because of the partial molar I had earlier this year!
I must admit I am going to a private hospital, since public healthcare is not best in here and I'm sure I'd want additional scans and so throughout my pregnancy.
Regarding symptoms, nausea started very recently and sometimes I really need to force myself to eat. It's not at its worst yet, I'm sure; but my stomach has always been sensitive and so I'm afraid of what might come next!
Also my nipples started to hurt couple of days ago, which is very new for me! I have never ever experinced breast/nipple pain in my life (before-during period, during previous pregnancy etc); so I'm taking it as a good sign!
My EDD seems to be May 8th according to my LMP, but I guess I O'd earlier and it may be around the 5th or so!
I am due may 14 aswell , today is the first day i feel rather sick
strange stomach, little nausea and everything seems smelly..
I miscarried last year so I am being extra cautious and paranoid , have a high risk job that requires flying , stress and night shifts so I am thinking of taking time off, unfortunately that means no money..so also stress!
I wish this 2 next months go faster !
Wishing you all a sticky!
