Hi there, I just got my confirmation from my doctor today that I am indeed pregnant. Beta of 984 at 21 DPO.
I'm SO nervous too. This is my first pregnancy and have been struggling to get pregnant for 2 years. I'm so scared to do anything to risk a miscarriage.
I just don't know if what I am experiencing is normal. Can't talk to anyone about it, because we've decided it's best to wait until 12weeks before telling anyone.
Any advise for someone who's freaking out?
I have my first ultrasound scheduled for April 16th. I can't wait!
Very kind of you! Contact me any time if you need to chat! I haven't been trying as long as you, but I think I know what you must feel like. I was diagnosed with PCOS when I was 16, long time ago now! The fertility treatments were rough, my migraines made it hard to cope with the meds. But thankfully, it worked. Just keeping my fingers crossed!
Good luck tomorrow for your blood work! Keep us posted!
I have been feeling like pressure in my lower back and my uterus i guess, I remember with my other pregnancies that I had cramping and I thought it was just my period coming so it must be just that. I hope it's just that!
I start a new job on Monday and I am going to go and sign the papers tomorrow, I will need to ask them what their policy is on doctor's appointments. I am not going to say I am pregnant though, I don't want them to take that contract and rip it up, lmao.
I've been having slight pressure in my back and uterus as well. My fertility nurse said it's probably from all the treatment medications I was on. Not feeling too bad this morning, except for feeling sick to my stomach.
I agree, you shouldn't tell them you're pregnant! I'm not telling anyone until after the 3rd or even 4th month! (depending on who they are!)
I'll keep my fingers crossed for you to have a nice and high beta toda!
I wasn`t on any treatments for this pregnancy only metformin. I have been feeling sick yesterday and today. I don`t remember ever feeling this sick with my other pregnancies especially this early on but whatever, I will take it as long as the baby is fine.
my last pregnancy I started showing early but I think that`s because it was the 3rd time. People were talking at the office about it at around 9 weeks but I had to wear a belly band starting week 6 I think it was.
I am going to go for my blood work after I sign the papers for work so I won`t get my results until tomorrow, I will let you know what they are. I am sure it will still be low because I am only 3 weeks 5 days pregger.
That is awesome!! Congratulations!
I was thinking about you this weekend, hoping everything went well.
I had a question, maybe you could answer, maybe someone else could, or both!
I had been doing some pretty heavy meds for fertility treatments. This was our fourth cycle and it took! I've been having cramps in my pelvis, I call the specific area my ovaries. Very obviously to the sides of my uterus. It comes and goes. I've also been having some light brown discharge. Again, it comes and goes.
Just wondering, is this normal? Has anyone else experienced this before? We've done some research online and LOTS of sites said it was quite normal, and that it's the placenta attaching to the uterine wall.
Cramping is very normal and it does switch from side to side, on and off, I found. As long as it's brown blood that means it's old blood but if you get red blood please go and get checked out.
When is your next appointment? How far are you now?
How are you finding your boobs by the way? Mine only hurt on the tips of the nipples and I feel like my whole boobs should be crazy sore by now. I have been having gushes and think it's blood but when I go to the washroom it's just cm. I have just started a new job so I am very nervous that I am going to miscarry again.
That's what I've read online. It just makes me nervous! I have no idea what to expect. I thought I was so prepared for this, but I'm feeling very overwhelmed! I think I'll feel better once I see my doctor.
My first OB appointment is on Friday. Ultrasound at 11 and visit with the doctor at 1pm. SO nervous! Again, have no idea what to expect from this visit. I'm praying that we can see/hear the heart beat. That would rest my nerves a tiny bit!
My boobs, well, I've noticed some changes already. They're normally quite large (DD) and they usually get quite sore a week or so before AF. But this, is NOTHING like that! I find they're fuller already. Which DH likes. (of course!) And yes, they're sore. But the soreness comes and goes. It's mostly my nipples that hurt too, but I've noticed when my cats are walking on me, as they are so fond of doing, the hurt all over. I guess it just depends on how they walk on me.
From my Beta levels, and going from my last menstral cycle, I'm estimating that I'm about 6-7 weeks. (7 weeks on Friday)
But I'll find out more on Friday I guess! I can't wait!
I am only 4 weeks 5 days today. I always remember my first 2 pregnancies when I wasn't on any medication and my hormones were out of whack. My boobs were so sore, they would just throb and I remember my last pregnancy with the meds that I would always say they don't hurt and I would freak out.
I think everyone is nervous and overwhelmed during the first trimester though. I go to the washroom like so many times just to reasure that everything is fine and there is no bleeding.
Good luck at your appointment. Every doctor is different, with my regular doctor they never gave me an ultra sound or anything just tell me what I can and can't eat and get paper work ready for other blood tests and stuff.
Yeah, as I said, my boobs are sore, but it comes and goes. Sometimes it's worse than others. I'm having wicked dizzy spells though! I've been dizzy before, but nothing like this.
Yeah, I go to the washroom way more often than I actually "need" to. I'm so nervous that I'm not letting myself get excited about it yet. I'll be like 39 weeks and I'll just then be getting excited! Seems every time I count on something, or get my hopes up, they get crushed.
I can't wait for my appointment. The week is going by SO slowly! I've been trying to keep busy, but it's just not taking my mind off it! I'll let you know how it goes!
Plang, did you have your appointment yet?? How did it go?
My boobs are starting to hurt more now.
I have been missing school lately because I am just too tired, I think I might drop out. I took this course to take my mind off of ttc and it did work but it's not something I will be working in, just something I was going to do on the side but now with my new job and everything it seems like a little much.
I started my new job this week and I fit in really well and I love the atmosphere so much, I can see myself working there for a really long time
hi Khandii! Yes, I did have my appointment. So amazing. I have never seen anything that amazing in all my life. We got to see our little bean's heart beating. 109 beats per minute. Drs said it measure at 6 weeks 4 days. Size of a half a grain of rice. So sweet!
The doctor's seem very pleased. They're referring me to an OB, should hear from them within the week.
I still have that picture in my mind, just seeing that little flutter on the screen.
What kind of course were you taking? Sucks that you're thinking of quitting though. But if you're too tired, especially after working a full time job, then it kinda makes sense. Is it something that would help you further your career?
This week has been so long. I had a wedding cake to make so I was up late all week baking and preparing for it. And we had my cat fixed, so it's been heart breaking dealing with this. (cried when I dropped him off!)
Hi everyone! Thanks Khandii for letting me know about this thread. I just found out I'm pregnant even though I've been pretty convinced for over a week now. I'm very early (probably around just 4 weeks or so) but I've been experiencing a lot of symptoms- mainly some serious dizziness and body aches, almost like the flu but without feeling really sick/bedridden. It's gotten better this weekend. My boobs got really sore about 4 days ago, to the point where I've been wearing bras even when I hang around the house (and I am a pretty average-chested girl) because they hurt if they bounce! Ha. I definitely get more pain from my nipples though. This morning they don't really hurt so I am welcoming the change. I haven't gotten any morning sickness yet, which I am dreading, but I'm hoping that if it hasn't hit me yet, maybe it won't? (wishful thinking). I'm still so early that I guess I can't predict anything. As for me, I am in a sticky situation right now because my husband and I want to move, especially now that we are expecting. So he is looking for a job in the state where my parents live (VA) and we are currently living in NYC. Soooo, whoever I can get for prenatal care will likely not be the person I deliver with, which is a huge bummer for me. So I will probably look for someone here and schedule an appoinment within the next 4 weeks from now and see how it goes and what they recommend that I do. At this point, I am just eating really healthy, hoping that everything is going well and trying to keep on my feet and not loaf around. I definitely get tired at night but during the day I surprisingly have a ton of energy! I wonder how long that will last...
Yay Plang I am so happy for you . I still have a couple of weeks before my ultra sound.
I am taking a hairdressing course part time. It's not something I will ever work in just do on the side. I told myself with my last pregnancy if I lose it I am going to do something for me. I hated my job and I needed something to make me happy so I enrolled into school which started in Jan but then a month into it I quit my job which is why I have started a new one now. A huge change in my life but it all seems to be working out and I do feel much happier then I was that's for sure.
Welcome Lady, I say move back home and settle in there.
Sickness can start from 4 weeks on so it still might come you never know, lol.
K Ladies, I am off to my parent's house.. My dad needs a haircut and then we are having bbq for dinner. I will chat with you all later.
I completely understand wanting to do something for you. It's so emotionally draining doing this whole TTC thing, that you really do just have to take your mind off of it. Personally, I think you should keep going with the course. Having something else going on in your life might be a good thing! I make cakes on the side, as tired as I am, I just have to keep plugging through my orders. I just did a wedding cake this weekend, I was misserable doing it, but it helped keep my mind off things.
Welcome Lady! Congratulations! I'm glad I'm not the only one experiencing the dizziness! When I told my doctors about it they seemed a little concerned. Mainly because it happens quite often while I"m driving, so they've asked me to try not to drive for a while until it settles down. Be careful! Don't want anything to happen!!
At my appointment on Friday, my doctor's told me that sickness usually peaks at 6-9 weeks and tapers off by around 13-16 weeks. So what I've been experiencing is NOTHING! HAHA! I felt really sick this morning, but once I ate something I felt a little better. Small frequent meals, That'll be my motto!
