JW - i'm so relieved for you that you got the Lovenox today! When will you have beta?

I had U/S today and all looks great. We saw yolk sac and fetal pole but it was too small to measure and no heartbeat yet. Dr was very happy with progress and dated me at 5w5d today, so I was one day off. I go back 2 weeks today for another U/S. Apparently because of my age I'm classed as 'high risk' (over 35!) so I'll have regular U/S and close monitoring - I'm happy about that.

Due date is December 14th :D

Jw- I'm happy you have your lovenox, did you get beta date moved up?

Mama- Congrats, seeing the ultrasound or scans are so awesome, it just makes it real to me! I'm 38, 1st pregnancy, and also considered high risk. My due date is December 2nd, which is my 11th Anniversary!

@JW: congratulations!!! Amazing to see your line getting darker. Congratulations! When’s your first ultrasound scheduled for? Wait, did you actually already have your first beta yet?!

@Frozen: while I’m of course sorry to hear that one sac was empty, I’m very happy to hear that the second one is doing so well and showing a strong heartbeat! Wonderful ultrasound photo! :) What exactly does pelvic rest mean - similar to bed rest?

@Beitun: I feel you with your hot flushes. Usually I’m freezing non-stop but currently I’m always warm!

@Mama: I think the pulling pain you mentioned is very normal - it’s your body making space for the belly to come :) Sorry to hear about the spotting you had - that must’ve been very worrying. But I’m glad to hear all is good. Actually, my doc did tell me that brownish spotting can be normal for quite a few women during their first trimester, so I think you should be fine.
Very glad to hear that your ultrasound went well! And it’s great to be monitored a lot - same for me due to my loss and I think it will be good to get reassured regularly.

My next ultrasound is on Monday. I’m already a bit anxious. This week’s beta/progesterone/estradiol blood work came back with very good results, so I shouldn’t have anything to worry. It’s just that it’s still so early (7w1d) and the 5 weeks to go till I’m in the ‘safe zone’ seem so far away.
How are you ladies coping with getting worked up and worried that something bad might happen?

I’ve also just started getting really bad acid reflux…yikes…I don’t know what I hate more - the reflux or the constant nausea!

Hi ladies,

Beitun- I'll be 37 in the summer, didn't expect it to take so long to fall pregnant but I still don't think we're 'old' Let's enjoy the extra attention and it means we'll see our little ones more often :D

Hope - I think you're right about the ligament pain, I just didn't expect it so early on. How exciting you get to see your baby on Monday, everything is going to be fine. Ask for a picture!

I'm not well today, a mix of low blood pressure and nausea and the two don't go well. I had to go back to bed after the kindergarten run and I slept another 2 hours...

BP is 88/67! Any suggestions from our nurses on how to bring that back up a little?

Mama drink lots of water and eat some salty food...that pressure is pretty low... especially if you are symptomatic.. you need fluids..... Someone asked before what pelvic rest is.... Basically means no sex... I started having some mild waves of nausea.... hope that's as bad as it gets!! My next US is monday for a 8 week scan.. and then I will be discharged to my regular OB. My due date is 12/6!

Thanks for the advice Frozen... my RE actually called me this evening and I told him about the low BP, he also said to drink lots of water.
So we have two U/S next Monday, you and Hope... another date to look forward to whilst I'm waiting for mine :D
Eat ginger biscuits or drink ginger tea for the nausea, it helps a lot.

Hey ladies just checking on everyone. I know we have some ultrasounds this week. I've been having cramps here and there, but I read that's normal at 8 weeks, breast are now sore, and I have a stuffy nose. But I welcome everything that brings my miracle baby to me.

Hello ladies! How was your weekend?
After a bit of a scare last Thursday (some brownish-pinkish discharge) I went in for an early ultrasound - all good though. Baby measured exactly the 7w2d it was and had a good heartbeat of 160.
So my next ultrasound is scheduled for this coming Friday - my husband will there for the first time as well.

I'm also still suffering from massive nausea, heartburn and insomnia. I only sleep around 3hrs per night and then I can't drag myself out of bed because the nausea is so horrible :( I don't know how with a busy work schedule I'm gonna make it through the next four weeks till hopefully the nausea will get better. Anyone else suffering as much?

How are you all doing?
Do you know when you'll be taken off the hormones?
