4w5d and scared

Postby sonson79 » Thu Mar 26, 2015 1:01 pm

I’m 35 yo and got my first BFP at 15 DPO last monday.

I started having early pregnancy signs around 8 DPO: unusual cramping, and food cravings. I thought it was PMS but I normally get those only 2 days before AF, so that was my first clue. Then at 10 DPO, I woke up to very large areola and sore nipples. Finally last Friday (12 DPO) I started peeing almost once an hour. I also felt sharp pains on my left side when I sneezed.

Since my BFP though, I feel like my symptoms are receding instead of growing. My urge to pee totally stopped, I don't feel any more pain when I sneeze or cough and worst of all, my nipples are less and less sore.
My only symptoms are now fatigue, a slitghly increased appetite and fuller breasts. I don't have any nausea or vomiting whatsoever.

Now I’m freaking out because I’m afraid my fading symptoms may be a sign of impending miscarriage. I'm even afraid to have my beta checked now. Did any of you ever experience this before?

(Sorry for my lame English)

Symptoms come and go. Some days youll be fine and others, cant get out of bed. Take another test to make sure your lines are good! If so then just relax and enjoy the days it's not to terrible :)

The day I got my BFP I was peeing all the time then that slowed up and it turned into just waking up early having to pee. I also had the cramping for about two weeks. I felt super nauseous for the first week and then it all went away until I was about 8 weeks, then the MS kicked in again. So I think that you are just fine! Get the betas done and that will help to reassure you :) Congratulations by the way!!

Thank you so much ladies for your support but i had my beta tested today and as expected, it's really low. A lame 231 mui/ml.
Now i'm just preparing myself for the actual miscarriage. I'm devastated to say the least.

hi ladies,

Hope everything is fine with you. I want to thank you so much for the support.
Coming here and reading your comforting words means so much to me.
Thanks again.
So i had my beta checked again this morning, exactly 72h after the first one.
It came back at 727 ui/l.
- good news is it tripled in 72H, doubled in 43h
- bad news: it's still quiet low for 21 DPO

I don't want anymore blood test, too nerve wracking.
i'll wait for the first u/s, hoping to see something positive.
I'll keep you guys posted

Is your doctor saying that those numbers are low because they look great to me! Things to remember, you could have implanted late, and as long as your number doubles every 48 hours you are fine! you also won't see anything until about 6-7 weeks on an US. I went in at 7 and the baby measured 6weeks 5days. We could barely see anything but we did see the little heartbeat. Good luck and I think that you and that baby are doing great! :) No need to worry.

Yep I agree! If the numbers are doubling your good! Baby could be taking a little longer to develop better but don't count yourself out yet! You are pregnant so enjoy it :) when is your u/s?

I got pregnant in 2010 and only tested cause my boobs hurt so bad. And got a line a week before AF.

Now that i have been charting the last two cycles I had sore boobs the first week of tww but not the second. But I tested dpo9 this time. I got a beta on dpo 11 and that was my only one. I have only had a little cramping in the morning. No boob pain. I just missed AF and so far wouldnt even think I was pregnant.

I woke up on my back this morning and when I first moved It felt like my whole chest was sunburned! It was super painful, but now nothing much. I keep expecting my boobs to hurt. I didnt get morning sickness last time. A lot of that is due to a magnesium defenciancy you have to correct prior to pregnancy. So I may just be good in that regard.

Some people go months without knowing. So dont fret yet.

Also any ultra sounds under 7 or 8 weeks can be iffy. I bleed a lot in 2010 and my first ultrasound at 6 weeks 5 days no heartbeat the one the next day there was a heart beat.

I was temping this time and know when I tested and when I think I implanted so I think im a little further along.

Stay calm everything will work out!

hi ladies,

Thank you for your support. I'm doing better. Had my last beta on friday at 25 DPO it came back at 4,133. It's still low for that term but the doubling time is good. I'm still not out of the woods so please, keep us in your prayers.
I have my next u/s on thursday, i will be 6w4d (FX for a normal sac and HB).

Hi ladies,

hope you're doing well.
So i had my u/s last week at 6W2d and my Ob gyn is an old one, i mean really old one. I like him tho 'cause he's very gentle and considerate. Problem is he's kind of old school.
He did a transabdominal u/s just to find out were the sac was. Then he mesured it at 2 differents points and said it was measuring 13.3 mm and that it was ok for that age.
he didn't check for the HB nor the yolc sac etc.

Since i'm a bit of a debbie Downer, i can't help but think that 13.3 mm is small for 6w2d ?
i've been googling for a while and can't come up with a straight answer. some site say it's OK, some say it should be around 20 mm and that it's measuring a week behind.
Can you please tell me what were your sac sizes at this point ?

besides that, i feel ok. I still don't have any morning sickness or nausea. Breast tenderness comes and goes and i'm tired but that's about it. i don't have crampings or spottings, just feel some pulling and sharp pains from time to time.

i don't know how to calm these nerves. Something inside is not confident with this pregnancy and i can't stop it. :(

I dont remember what my size was but I know I didnt see a heart beat till 6 week 6 days.

Most practitioners dont see ladies till 8 weeks give or take.

It may be a slow grower it may not, but I wouldnt fret till 7 weeks when the heart beat should be there.

Try to stay calm and rest. When is your next appt?

I just looked at the calendar I have printed and for 6 weeks it gives an expected measurement of 4-6 mm at 6 weeks 1 days. 12 mm for 8 weeks.

So I am not sure what he was measuring at 13 but that seems large enough. Even when i google sac measurements its large for 6 weeks.

Lots of the charts I find dont even put measurements for less than 8 weeks and says not to worry about them before that point as its hard to see and measure.

So just be calm that what the baby needs.
