Ktee- I wouldn't feel guilty stall about being in maternity pants. There is so much bloating and pressure going on that it's quite uncomfortable to wear anything snug. I'd so whatever makes you feel more comfortable for sure.

Jaz-I hope you are feeling better!

So I'm two days late today, CD30. My breasts still hurt a little and I've had loose stools for the past couple days (sorry tmi). I also started feeling nauseous this morning but I think that's it too early for any kind of pregnancy related nausea. Maybe the progesterone inserts are causing it? Could it? I wanted all the tests outbid my house so I had one ClearBlue digital left and took it yesterday. It read the same as before 1-2 weeks past ovulation which makes me think my levels aren't rising. I have to keep telling myself that I was only one day late yesterday and to chill the heck out. Speaking of chilling out, it's supposed to get into the 30's for the next two days in central Florida...I'm looking forward to it:)

melanie - i have had slight nausea a hand full of times in the past week and im 5 weeks, 3 days today. so i think it is possible!! ive also had headaches, cramps/ache, super thirsty, trouble sleeping, sore bbs. good luck at your appt/test today! i still havent done a single hpt since the first and only dec 28th. its tough. and i dont have blood work til jan 23 and u/s jan 24!! its out of my hands. i just hope and be as healthy as i can :) fx crossed for all of us!

as for maternity pants... i cant wait!! wear them whenever you like! they are comfy and i find make belly look even cuter/rounder :)

i know i read the uterus doesn't actually rise out of pelvis etc for awhile, but i swear when i look down at my tummy there is a roundness to the top and sides. WTH!? maybe its in my head. dh noticed too.... weird.

Smashely-Sounds like everything is progressing as it should for you. I'm just having a hard time with my tests not getting darker. I'm only 4 weeks and two days and they are still coming up positive but they are just as light as the one I took last Thursday. I don't think I'm every going to test early again (before I miss a period), it just drives me mad comparing them.I forgot that I had a FRER at work in my desk, so I took it this morning just knowing it would be a little darker...nope, still as light as the first. I'm totally done testing now and just praying for some good news from the doc which won't be until tomorrow.

Hi Ladies

good to see everyone is doing well!

Canada was nice - we got upgraded on the way home to business class - shame i couldnt take advantage of the free champagne

i have eaten and eaten and eaten all christmas so plan is to get back to the gym TODAY!

Baby boy appears to be doing well - he moves a lot now which is nice but still odd! ha ha

below is my scan pic for those that couldnt see and a pic of me and the husband on NYE - i worse the same dress last NYE and there is a bit of a difference!! ha ha

Indi-You and your baby boy look great! Glad all is going well:)

Ktee-I've always had better tests with SMU as well.

Smashley-Did you take one of the FRER's yet?

I started feeling extra crampy this am and took a FRER which is barely positive. It took forever for it to even come up and I could barely see the line. Once the dr calls I'll update you guys with the numbers but it doesn't really matter at this point. I'm going to tell him that I'm stopping the progesterone so that nature can take it's course. I just want it out of me at this point so I can get back to normal. I feel like I prepped myself for this because of the mc/chemical (whatever it was) last September, but I still can't help feeling immensely angry. I never thought I'd be one of those girls who have recurrent miscarriages/chemicals for no apparent reason, but now I am. I guess two pregnancies in 6 months means I'm fertile but am just not good at sustaining them. Either something isn't right with my hormone levels (which is why I took progesterone the day after I found out I was pregnant but it didn't help anyway) or the egg is implanting in my tubes (because of my tubal reversal) so it just stops developing. I don't know what to think at this point. I suppose I could go back to the dr who did my reversal and get an HSG but I really didn't want to have to go that route. I would think that because the sperm gets to the egg that my tubes are clear but maybe the egg just can't get out of the tubes. I hate not knowing and the fact that I may never know why. I also hate that I'm beginning to feel jaded about being pregnant. Because if I do get pregnant again then I feel like I won't be able to enjoy it, at least in the beginning, and neither will my husband.

im so sorry this is happening mrobyn!! i hate not knowing too. it makes it so hard. but you're right you CAN get pregnant, so you're obviously ovulating etc which is the step some women have trouble with. try to keep positive and keep trying, im sure it will happen for you.

i did take the FRER this morning. i think i over saturated it, so the control line is light, BUT the important line (test line) is very dark irl. so i feel alright about things. just have to wait until jan 23rd for blood work and u/s. oh boy.

Your tests look great smashley! Waiting for that first appointment is so hard. Although waiting for the rest of my appointments hasn't been any easier :-). How far along will you be on the 23rd?

thanks ral!

i saw my dr last week to tell her im pregnant and dicuss meds etc. we discussed the options of having a really early u/s and HCG blood tests etc. she said if you want to forgo these then i dont need to see you til 8 weeks.... i thought about it.... and said ok ill wait!!

sounded fine at the time. but now im thinking, this is TOO long, im going crazy lol. so i see her jan 23rd at 8 weeks for blood work and u/s requisition then jan 24th ill have the ultrasound, i guess for dating and hopefully heart beat!

Smashley-That is such a great progression! I think you should feel very at ease with a great looking test like that and the symptoms you've been having:)

So the dr emailed me back and said my hcg yesterday was only 37 and my progesterone was 23. So he advised me to stop the progesterone and said he didn't think I would need it if/when I got pregnant again (at least I know that wasn't a factor in the mc's). I just knew something was not right with the tests getting lighter and I'm at least glad I prepared myself. I'm not as much sad this time around as I am angry. Not the way I wanted to start out the New Year but I can't let it dictate how the rest of the year will go. I'm hoping that the bleeding will commence and be over with before my bday on the 18th. I've decided to plan a trip for my DH and I to get out of town and visit St. Augustine (where we took our honeymoon) that weekend to get our mind off of all things baby. Thanks for all the support ladies, it has helped me immensely. I guess I will jump back over to the TTC side and hopefully see you guys again soon!
