Well DH also doesn't want to do it, so for our marriage sake it's best that we are on the same page

Prenatal screening is done here as part of the 12 week scan, so there's no additional appointment. In my first pregnancy we had it done, then in my second we were living out here (we were in the UK before), and here they didn't offer it. Now they do, so were having it again. For us it's just a case of preparing ourselves for what might happen. It was a no brainier for us. They only do downs testing here though; bloods and nuchal fold measurements, but they don't combine them to get the more accurate result yet; it's all still early stages here

See, I've seen children with downs live a happy and healthy life ... Do you know much about trisomy 18?? Google it.

In the UK you just go to the doctor tell them you're pregnant, they don't even do a test or anything at all. They send you for a bloodtest, but I'm not even sure exactly what that's for, cause they don't check hcg levels. Then they let a midwife team know that you're pregnant and they ring you to make an appointment to book you in. All they do at the first appointment is ask questions about whether you've had vaccinations (and what for, like rubella etc). And just the general questions and a urine test for protein. And then you have to wait till 12 weeks to get a scan/US.
So we don't even get any confirmation at all about hcg levels or even being pregnant.

I remember with Lucas I was so scared I'd turn up at the first scan at 12 weeks and nothing would be in there! Cause no one ever confirmed it (other than my tests) so I thought maybe I was making it all up or something

I don't think you get any special treatment here for when you've had a mc before either, just if you've had more than a few (not sure what the number is, but if you've had whatever is considered quite a lot of miscarriages). Kind of makes me nervous for being pregnant again as I'd love to have an early scan or bloodtests 'regularly'. But I guess when I get pregnant again I'll just have to hope for the best! Then again, there's nothing you can do to stop you from having a mc anyway once it's already started, so it wouldn't really matter - though it's nice to know everything is going well.

Congrats again, tl! That mantra is awesome!

AFM, my breasts have been ridiculously sore for days, especially my nipples. DH will hug me, and it just leaves me whimpering in pain. Also, my temp today was the highest for the whole cycle! I hope it stays up! I'm testing on Monday (12dpo). AF is theoretically due Wednesday or Thursday. I don't know how long my LP is because I don't think I ever ovulated before the Clomid.

Dust to everyone!

Good luck GP!

Lol, fun eh tl? Middle of second tri I have found much nicer, have my energy back and no nausea, aside from constant hunger and mood swings (and soreness from growing) my other symptoms are gone. So that's something to look forward to, help get you through the nausea and exhaustion!
Finally have enough energy to tackle our nursery (aka currently our storage room) so getting that started is today's game plan (helps that it's too rainy out to do anything lol).

Lots of baby dust to all the POAS Addicts out there TTC!!!

I had metal mouth for a day or two, but I had bad metal mouth right before I got pregnant from some antibiotics I was on, so at that point I didn't notice much.

So I was just in my backyard and got a sudden gush, so I checked with my finger and it was a TON of watery, milky discharge ... Today I AM having the mild af like cramps ... This couldn't be a sign that I'm going to bleed could it? Is this copious amount of watery cm normal at 5.3 weeks?
