4w1d. Preggo buddies?

Postby mandylgibbs » Tue Aug 04, 2015 10:13 am

I'm looking for someone or a couple gals to share symptoms, good/bad news, war stories,etc.
We've been ttc for 6 years and I'm very anxious for our first appointment on August 20th.
So, I called my doctor and requested HCG doubling. I wish I hadn't! Yesterday and 14 dpo my HCG was 87... which is perfectly normal BUT I really wanted it to be 300+. I'm hoping for better numbers tomorrow, but honestly I just don't want the rug pulled out from under me yet.
I'm a foster mom. We had an extremely difficult first placement 1.5 years ago which included a 14 month old baby girl. I only got to keep them for a month. It was an incredibly stressful time.
Now, we are preparing to adopt the placement that came to us April 2014. 3 children... the youngest was 1 when she came to us... so I've done this mom thing a little bit. The unfortunate thing about foster care is that everything is so tentative. We're waiting for termination of rights but we don't have any definitive dates... even then, we could lose or court case or face an appeal.
So, this is the first child that is undeniably mine. Of course I adore my other babies, but no one else gets to dictate what I do with this baby... That's what scare me after all these years. I just feel like we've had years and years of disappointment and uncertainty, and I want this SO BADLY. I have been talking to my belly all day since before I even got my BFP. I've been saying "I know you're in there. Please, please, please stick baby."

I'm 4w1d today! Just got my bfp at 14dpo. I'm sorry you're going through so much anxiety. As much as possible try to think optimistically. Worrying about the little bean will only cause you more stress. And positive thoughts can have a real affect on us physically. Your work as a foster mom is really honorable. Must be so difficult but really amazing for you to do that.
Hope your numbers continue to rise and you get your rainbow baby.

Hi, I am 4 weeks and 2 days with baby #1. I would love to be your buddy! I had a chemical pregnancy last cycle and it's making me pretty nervous this time around. I got by first BFP at 10 DPO and I have been testing everyday since then making sure it's still positive. My first appointment isn't until next Friday :-( I am so excited for this baby and I just want to feel happy about it and not be so scared I am going to lose it again. I can't wait for my appointment I just want to here the dr say everything looks good.

I'm not on the same cycle as you guys as I just found out I'm BFP (DPO 12). But I wanted to reach out because I saw that you also got a chemical pregnancy the first time around? I'm definitely also nervous about whether this pregnancy will persist. I'm afraid to go to the doctor however until after the baby is bigger.

Anyway, how did your doctor visit o? Are you confirmed to be pregnant? How many weeks are you? When are you due?
