Oh my gosh babydust what a relief, I'm so happy for you and the amazing results!!

Ah! I'm so mad! I was walking inside from getting home and heard my phone vibrate went to get it out and of course missed the call from the doctor!!! And the office is closed so I can't call back! she didn't leave the beta number in the message but she said everything looked great and I was in the normal "6-7 week" range. Which is wow! I'm only 5w4d. I'll have to wait to call back tomorrow to get the actual number. She said they put in the referral for ultrasound and I should hear from them in a few days! Yay! Baby must be a fast grower?!

Yay Babydust that is awesome news!! Atleast you found all this out during your first pregnancy incase it happens in your next. So happy for you.

Kflores, that stinks you missed the call, but great news that everything looks great! They base how far along you are on how high your levels are. A certain amount is 4-5 wks, then higher is 6-7 wks, etc. But, the ultrasound will be the real factor that will see how far along you are, and give you a due date. Maybe you miss calculated your ovulation?!

Great news all around ladies!!

Hi ladies, so my second beta numbers are 6794. I calculated it out and it was a 51hr doubling rate. I was personally hoping for a higher number, but oh well. I'm thankful for what I have! The lady said I should get a call today to schedule my u/s appointment. So exciting!!!

That's a great jump. If I remember correctly it's supposed to double around a 48 hour period so you are definitely on the right track. Let us know when the u/s is scheduled. How are you feeling? I know from my experience it can be a very exciting and nerve wrecking experience.

Great #'s Kflores i think mine were around that maybe a little lower, they only checked it once then sent me off to the u/s where they confirmed a wk later i was 6 wks or so.

So glad everyone has been having great news lately!

Thanks ladies. I'm feeling pretty anxious still. I can't wait for the u/s, i'll let you ladies know when that day will be. I think i'm starting to have a little bit of morning sickness and the fatigue has definitely set in. Food is a picky subject for me. Sometimes it sounds good, then it sounds gross. I'll be in the middle of eating something and all of a sudden it tastes awful and sends my stomach churning. Lovely. Hope this is just temporary and passes quickly!

Ultrasound is scheduled for July 13th, mine and DH's anniversary! I'm SO excited! What a wonderful way to celebrate our anniversary!

So, I found this strange. I forgot to ask about my Metformin the other day at my appointment so I called today to ask about how long I should take it and i just got a call back from the doctor telling me to discontinue it immediately. So, no gradual pills.... they want me to stop it cold turkey. I mean, I want to do as doctor orders, but that sounds so off from what you were told to do babydust. I'm just worried something will harm the baby. I know i've read that many people take it till the end of the 1st trimester and it helps prevent miscarriage.

That's awesome about the u/s date being your anniversary!!!
I had a lot of anxiety about metformin and did tons of research. Honestly from what I found it seems that it's a controversial topic in the medical field. Some doctors discontinue right away, others gradually after the first trimester and others let the woman stay on it throughout. It doesn't seem that any research strongly sways in any of the decisions- many women stop it right away and don't miscarry and many continue it all the way through and baby is completely normal and healthy.
My advice is to stay away from Google and ask your doctor all the questions and concerns you have. I wouldn't discontinue it until you have a chance to speak to your doctor and not the nurse.

Thats great news klores, how sweet on your anniversary! hopefully those tummy issues go away i never really had sickness just a few days of nausea and if i didnt eat every hr or so i would feel it too but as long as i ate i was pretty good.

Babydust how are you feeling? Yay on 22 weeks! Whens your next appointment?

I'm feeling good. This morning I was laying on the couch before I got in the shower and for the first time saw a little pop from the outside of my tummy. It was so cool! She did it one more time, but of course as soon as I grabbed my phone to take a video for hubby she stopped.
Since the doctor moved up my due date to match the due date the u/s place had I'm actually starting week 24 tomorrow! But, even though the doctor moved my due date, he doesn't think the baby will come as early as October 22 (new due date). He said he's thinking more like the end of October (so in between my original due date 11/4 and my new due date 10/22. I left my ticker the same but changed the one of my phone so I can compare the two dates.
My next ob appointment is this afternoon and then I think he's sending me for an u/s at the end of the month before my Portland, Maine vacation (he said it'll be to make sure the placenta has cleared so he can let me know if I have any restrictions on the trip- i.e. swimming, long walks, etc).
How are you feeling?

Thats right i forgot your due date did change but your right who knows when she will actually come. I caught my little guy last wk on video but it was very faint and you had to really look for it. But its so cool! i Might be heading up to Maine in the next few weeks but not sure yet! I dont even know if ill get another u/s this pregnancy i hope so! Hope your appointment went well!

Appointment was great! Doctor said baby's heartbeat was strong and she even kicked him during the appointment. I didn't gain any weight since my last appointment 2 weeks ago, but prior to that I had gained 9lbs in 5 weeks so doc was happy w where I'm at now.
I'm supposed to go for the glucose test again this time only the 1 hr test with if the next 1-2 weeks and I see him again in about 2.5 weeks.
That's great you got baby on video!
DH and I are going into NYC for dinner for a friend's birthday Friday, prob beach on Saturday and we r thinking of registering at babies r us on Sunday to give everyone another store option for gifts. We also bought new curtains for the baby's room so we may put those up depending on how motivated we feel.
How about you ladies?

Glad your apt went great! Is it normal to do the glucose test twice? Sounds like you have a great fun filled weekend planned :) DH and I both have Friday off, so we are going to relax and get our house ready for our party we're hosting on the 4th. Lots of little things to get ready! We have a pool so I plan on spending most of Saturday floating around with a glass of ice water in my hand haha.

So, I was able to talk to my actual OB about the Metformin and I feel better about it all. I don't have to stop "cold turkey' like my first message said. She said I can gradually start reducing my dose and just finish off my current bottle and then call it good. She said at this point since I do not have diabetes or anything, there is no more need for the medication. Where as it has been labeled as safe to take during pregnancy, if it is not needed, she doesn't recommend it.

My boobs are really starting to hurt. It hurts a lot when I sleep and is so uncomfortable. I think I need to invest in a nice sports bra to sleep in.
