AFM, its cd4 for me. Just so happens..my temp today is the same exact temp I had for ov day last cycle. When i reach cd8..im going to do a little experiment and add these temps to last cycle and see if it says I o'd on cd24. This is pretty much the boring phase until I hit cd8. Nothing much going on except im having my menses, cramping and moody but of course thats normal when AF is around. Im taking my prenatals daily and taking my temp daily. I didnt temp on cd2 because when i started the flow, i decided to just wait until the bleeding stopped but on the night of cd2, my dh told me i should just temp from the beginning so i can atleast have something to go by when i go to the doc..so i started taking my temp again yesterday. This morning I woke up to take my temp and dh wanted me to put the alarm on for 7 for him so i said i can do it and he said go take your temp It was pretty funny especially coming from MY dh since he thought temping at first wasnt going to help but after explaining everything and he finally listened..now he says do it then go to Dr. Steinberg (my ob/gyn..the best!) and we go from there. So im shocked that he is sooo willing and open now and lets me talk to him about this stuff and im happy because we are closer. Wow this is pretty long so im just going to wrap this up by saying..I have a long day ahead of me. Nothing but cleaning up and waiting for dh to come home from work. I go back to work on Wednesday. Well thats it for me.
Patrice- yay for a day off Isn't it funny- when you have to work there is all this other stuff that you'd rather be doing but then when you get the day off it's like...wander around. That's the way I am most of the time
yes! every time i work, i say i can be relaxing at home or doing other things and the minute i have days off...im lost atleast i have sunday-tuesday off and dh is off tomorrow so we get to spend time together
Hi Ladies- opinions please! Bump or not-bump? Considering that my stomach was extremely flat before I am assuming this is my "bump" (ps, these hip-hugger pants fit a month and a half ago - I actually had to alter the waist band this morning )
OMG. I called the doctor becasue dh may not be in town for our OB appt. on the 11th...so doc said "come in now". So we all four piled into the car and went. Once we got there I had gained a half pound is all...and when doc listened for the hb--nothing. O my gosh it was so scary because he tried and tried, but nothing. Even the doctor was getting extra grey hairs! Anyway he ordered an emergency u/s and when we got in the tech was the same one that discovered my mc in November and he turned pale. So by this time we (dh and I) were trying not to freak out. But on the u/s was this absolutley perfect tiny little baby and a pounding 147 bpm hb! Phew!! (S)he was waving arms around like crazy but was tucked in a ball under my artery so my hb was masking the sound! What a perfect blessing! We are so relieved and grateful. Baby is measuring about 12 week 1 day I am very happy today!
Coy- Whew! I'm sure that must've been scary. Sounds like what happened to me at my 12 week appt... I don't think you were on this thread yet?? Anyway, they couldn't find the heartbeat either and it was the longest 5 minutes of my life... I was on the verge of tears but they kept trying to remind me that at 12 weeks it's still very hard to find the heartbeat with the doppler. They took out the u/s machine and I was expecting the worst, I couldn't even look at the screen. Then they told me, there's the baby, jumping around and everything! But I was like, "where's the heartbeat?" (As if the baby could be moving and jumping around without a heartbeat ) But it was just me being paranoid, I had to see that heart beating for reassurance. I finally did. But wow, I know how you felt in that moment. Apparently, it really can be difficult to hear the heartbeat as early as 12 weeks. (I had also tried using the doppler at home at 11 weeks and it was way too early but started to freak me out that I couldn't pick it up). But what a relief it is, things like that really test our trust and patience!
And yes, that does look like the start of a bump to me
coy- *WHEW* When you were telling your story I was re-living everything that I went through in January and I was almost in tears for you. So glad the babe is doing well
AFM, I'm thinking of doing the Provera now, even though the midwife told me to try it in May... :/ What do you all think?
Thank you, I was scared but as dh said we have to believe that God has blessed us and will take care of everything. I was glad my dh was there! Our poor doctor was afraid too but really happy when he heard the good news.
As far as the Provera-Honestly, if you are in the right stage of your cycle to start it then (if it were me) I'd say start now. No harm could come from it in my opinion and it may speed things along. Did she tell you why wait until May? After my mc everything I read said "wait 6 to 9 weeks" to ttc again. Well, of course, I started right away. In talking with my doc and the officiating surgeon they told me as long as my body is healthy to start and I have had at least one good cycle no problem. So I think if you feel now is a right time, then- go for it
