it is more like only 8 weeks now, and that is if this little one sticks in there that long! I had a 30 week growth scan and she is measuring in the 90th percentile Expected birth weight on that basis is 9 pounds, ouch! But I get another scan on 8th Feb, and another 4 weeks after that, to keep an eye on her size. I might be retested for diabetes too, in case that is why she is big, but I dont think I have diabetes.
Other than that, everything is OK, but I have developed carpel tunnel syndrome too, due to swelling, so I am being referred to a physio. It is all go!
Yep its more like 8 weeks, im 32 weeks in 2 days time. I keep thinking this little one will come early, 37 weeks is classed as full term so it could be anytime in the next 4-8 ish weeks! Eek! Excited and nervous/anxious!
Im almost ready, just got a few things left to buy and ive been adding bits to my hospital bag.
Im getting really tired these past couple of weeks.
Wow, hard to believe it's just a matter of weeks for you ladies!I can't wait either!
Raven, bless your heart, hon...it must be so confusing and frustrating for you. I hope everything straightens out for you soon
Katya, congrats!!I think O'ing on CD19 is a HUGE victory so farYou must be soooo happy!
Well, I'm a little frustrated. No, make that a LOT frustrated. I had some spotting last week and I thought AF was on its way so I didn't bother calling the doc back about trying to get my Provera prescription. Then the spotting totally disappeared and I went in to the office to tell them I was on CD80 and I needed something to start my cycle. What did I get?...a prescription for Provera, you would think. Nope. All she did was increase my Metformin to 2,000mg a day. WTH??! I know the Met. is supposed to help with ovulation, but sometimes it takes a little while to start working. And I've only been on it a month. Why not give me something to kickstart my AF while the Metformin is working?! It doesn't make sense to me. Now, I'm not supposed to go back until Feb. 18th for a follow-up. So I guess if AF doesn't show by then maybe she'll prescribe something. But still, why should I have to wait at least another 3 1/2 weeks to get something for starting a new cycle?! I'll be on CD105 by then!
Anyway, just had to ventHope everyone has a great weekend
Caroline- I have to get the glucose test done soon too. I had it done before my bfp when my dr was checking out various blood work/hormone levels. It was just so boring sitting around forever...not looking forward to that again
Bex- I am sorry to hear about the carpal tunnel. I have heard that can happen when your pregnant. Hoping I can avoid it!
Bethany-I am sorry to hear af didn't show and your dr wouldn't give you provera. It seems every dr has a different way of doing things. My dr never wanted to let my cycles go long so they kept putting me on provera. I hope af shows for you soon!
I am so upset right now, my heart is breaking for a good friend. She was ttc for over two years and has been to a specialist and did a couple rounds of iui's. they decided to take a break for a few months and finally fell pregnant when they least exppected it. All was well first two scans and yesterday she went for her 12 week and they found out they lost the baby. I just can't stop thinking about her. I couldn't imagine ttc over 2 years with no bfp only to finally get pregnant and lose it I just pray she doesn't have to wait that long again.
Rach, yes, that is sad about your friend. I'm so sorry. My DH and I tried for a long while before we conceived our first son. We had a miscarriage at 11 weeks about a year before having a successful conception/pregnancy with him and it was very hard. I imagine that pain would be even harder to bear the longer you've been TTC. Kind of odd with us because it took forever to finally get our first son and then our second son was conceived very quickly (and accidentally, lol). I think it's because (I've heard) that you're very fertile both shortly after giving birth and after a miscarriage. But anyway, my condolences to your friend. I know it's so hard. If it's true that someone is very fertile shortly after a miscarriage then she might end up conceiving quickly again if she's emotionally ready.
Thanks, Louise...I thought so, too.Especially after this very same doctor told me in November to make sure if 2 months pass with no AF, to let her know so they can give me something to get it going. Makes no sense at all
Rachel so sad about your friend. This is my worst nightmare. I had a friend who got all the way to 25wks before miss carrying her son was such a sad time and she never fully recovered
I did buy the 75mg aspirin so this is day 3 of taking them. Hope they help. One thing I have noticed about the cycle is that my boobs are very painful to touch. This hasn't ever happened before so I hope it's a good sign that ovulation is getting stronger and my body is sorting itself out. Fertility friend says my test date is 1 Feb which is the day my consultant appointment is. I guess if I do get a bfp I can at least beg for progesterone supplements lol.
Raven and progress??
Sorry to hear your dr is being unhelpful Beth. Could you try another or ring back and explain why you are disappointed?
