srivera: my husband is an EMT and is itching to deliver, AT HOME. i told him no way, no how! but he'll be in the room when i do deliver and i'm sure he'll be asking the doctor to do anything he can lol
update: got my 2nd round of bloodwork back, hcg went from 43 on monday to 232 thursday! and my progesterone went from 26 to 37! i have an appointment for my first ultrasound on wednesday the 24th (looking to see the placement of the pregnancy.) i'm sooo excited!!!!
I haven't had any spotting but I've been extremely tired, and just generally feel unwell. I haven't been sick yet either, knock on wood. I agree, everything smells so gross! And things taste funny too! Is this your first Scooby?
So how is everyone doing? We have another U/S tomorrow morning so maybe it will seem more real then. My wife and I have both been very guarded with this pregnancy for some reason. I am sure it is finding out in kind of a surprising way, so hopefully seeing something more than a black dot will help.
Well we had another U/S this morning to check on our little one. Since last week they only saw a sac they wanted to make sure we had something inside, so we got our first glimpse at our little one. Heart was just fluttering away at 132 bpm. Measured on track and was doing great!
We had our first appt with our midwife on Monday. We didn't do much she tried to listen for the heart beat, but said it was too early without an ultrasound. As I am only 8 weeks and my uterus is still bellow my pelvic bone. Our next appt is in 3 weeks and we should definitely hear it then! I've been pretty sick for the last two weeks but I've been taking ginger pills and drinking ginger tea and that seems to help some. I'm now wearing wrist bands that are supposed to help with the nausea too. I guess they must be because I've had it under control for almost a week. (knock on wood) Nothing sounds good to eat anymore. How's everyone else feeling?
kcgage: i'm actually feeling pretty well, just really sore breasts. otherwise, barely any nausea! we measured about 6 and a half weeks, so we still have a while to go before that all changes. i just had that "mothers intuition" since we found out we were pregnant. my husband swore at our 5th week ultrasound that he saw 2 sacs, and my mom swore on our 6th week ultrasound that she saw 2.. then the doctor called us this afternoon and confirmed it - so it was a shock to say the least, but we all had an inkling
twins do not run on either side of our family. it must have just been the clomid we were on! thats the only way i can explain it! i'm due around thanksgiving, i'll get an exact date when i see an OB in the next few weeks. i'm just being seen by the hospital's outpatient center for right now until we get the heartbeat, hopefully next week
had another ultrasound today, both babies are looking good! baby b is quite a squirmer... it couldn't sit still long enough to get a really good picture lol but both heartbeats are strong and both look good!
how's everyone else doing?? hows everyone feeling?? i dont want to get beat if i say that i've still had no nausea.... lol
