    Congrats, Just waiting! I haven't seen my Dr. just yet, but I went in yesterday for hcg testing and will go back tomorrow. They'll book an appt after that. The last time I saw my OB she said when I do get pg again she would do 2 early scans, probably at 6 and 8 wks. I'm so nervous for tomorrow! I'm feeling ok, just slight cramping every now and then, but nothing too concerning.

    How are you feeling? Have you scheduled an appt yet??

    Welcome, Kosmikkitten :) and congrats! I've been a mess today too! A nurse from my MD's office called w/ my hcg results and said they were low at 108, but that's at 3w6d and everything that I've seen suggests that it's normal. My progesterone was good at 36...which is a big improvement for me! I'm trying to stay positive, but it was like a kick in the stomach!

    Have you had any tests done or appts made??

    Hi Kosmi Kitten. Congrats. Try to stay calm you can't change the future. try stay positive

    NurseKelly- I can't believe they thought that was low for so early, your babies just implanted how can the number be huge already. Anyway it's not the number that count really it's the doubling. When do your get your second blood draw?

    I'm feeling ok, smells are making me a little nausea's but nothing bad. I am on prgesterone because my level was 29.7 and thats on the lower end of normal. pessaries are fun! I tried to book an appointment with my dr yesterday but she is away again so wont hear back from her office until next week. I am in the hands of a fertility clinic as I was doing an ovulation tracking cycle so they will do regular ultrasounds and blood work until 12weeks. I'm so excited and trying not to think about what has happened in the past this is a new pregnancy and new beginning.

    Thanks for the support ladies!
    I have an appt scheduled for Dec 20. I'll be 8 weeks according to LMP but a little less than 8 weeks I think because of ovulation later than expected.
    I havent had any blood drawn and I did not go in to have my pregnancy confirmed. DH and I decided we cannot change the outcome so we wanted to push our first appt out as far as possible.

    Welcome Cazi. Congrats on your bfp.
    I'm sorry for your previous losses, but hopefully we will all get to know each other every well in the coming 8 months or so.

    KK - I can understand wanting to push out the first appt. How are you keeping the stress at bay?
    My Miscarriages were missed Miscarriages at approx 6 weeks so I want to know asap what is going on in there, I'm not carrying around a dead baby for 6wks again.

    Lots of luck to us all!

    I thought my chances were better to see something on a u/s at an 8 week appt....but doesnt sound like they will be giving me one at that time. I am going to try and stand up for myself (and my sanity) and tell them I HAVE to have one. It really is driving me crazy not knowing and I have been POAS almost daily since my first pos test.
    I'm trying not to stress very much but I know the next 2 weeks will be hard since I started m/c at 6.5 weeks last time.

    so i had my 2nd beta hcg drawn today and i'm a nervous wreck! not sure what dpo it would be b/c i gave up on opks this month...i was going poas crazy! but today was 4w1d...so hoping for good news. won't know the results til tomorrow and they'll schedule an appt then. i'm sure i won't sleep a wink tonight! not really having any symptoms except some mild/moderate cramping, doesn't feel the same as menstrual cramps. but if i remember correctly, i think i had some mild cramping with my other pregnancies as well.

    has anyone else had any hcg levels drawn?

    kozmik-i bet you're aggravated! maybe they'll listen to you and do an earlier scan.

    justwaiting...hope you can get an appt soon!!

    good luck ladies and keep us posted :)

    Thanks for the update, Kelly! The first page is really looking good with all those names!

    I hope your HCG results give you a sigh of relief!

    I have not had any blood levels taken. I dont even really know how I would go about getting them checked since I dont have a doctor yet. :shrug: Oh well...I know the wait wont kill me! It just wont be pleasant!
