I have no idea what my levels are (were when I went to see my dr. ) but as far as I know everything is all good. I have an ultrascreen scheduled on 11/5 which seems like a long long time from now. I'm 36 and this is my last child. After this the DH has volunteered to "get fixed" what a guy huh? I have a DD that is almost 13, a DS who is 8 and another DS who is 21 months . Needless to say most of the time I'm a busy gal. I just hope I can make it through this last pregnancy stress free.
I wish I was having an U/S sooner than November. I thought about asking my dr. just so I can know that everything is going ok in there.. I have this crazy paranoia during the first trimester because before I was preg with my DS I had a miscarriage at 11 weeks so waiting til 11/5 is so far away and will make me crazy til then.
My EDD is April 10th. I understand, I have been waiting for the second trimester. Finally I am 13 weeks. I got an ultrasound yesterday and heard the heartbeat and saw it sucking it's tiny thumb. Very exciting and emotional since it is my first pregnancy!

lise you have anxiety issues as well....so do i! i have health anxiety and let me tell you this pregnancy has really thrown me out of whack! its kind of cool to see there is someone else going through it with me....btw im happy for you that you get your u/s sooner....good luck and everything will be fine!
oh, I need to correct my previous post, as I misunderstood the nurse on the phone about my hcg levels!
They were 8919 at 4wks6days, which is HIGH!! I have been so sick! They did an u/s at 6wks6days, and there was the little heart, beating up a storm at 140-150bpm! I was so happy to see the hb that early! What a relief!
I have some serious anxiety issues and being without my medication really does wacky things to me. I'm sure its making my DH nuts. I went from being so relaxed about everything (we have another child together but I've been medicated since then so he's used to be being on my meds) to high strung and stressed out all the time. I really try not to stress but apparently thats what I do best. lol. I am driving myself nuts counting down the days til friday so that I can make sure everything is going a ok in there with this little one.
I am probably making everyone else nutty as well. I couldn't sleep tonight (one of my other issues I'm normally medicated for is insomnia) so I ended up vacuuming my living room because I could smell my dogs. I know crazy huh? Well atleast when I get up in the morning my house will be nice and clean.
I think I may actually try to get some sleep now. Bus time comes way too early for me these days.
