The BSL Graduate/Stalking Thread - SPRING Edition - HOORAY, SPRING!!! - Page 5

post #81 of 230
OK, update time. smile.gif

I met the doctor today, and I really like her. She addressed all of my concerns and had really reviewed my history. I chickened out and didn't talk about the possibility that I won't deliver with her. I think maybe I'll keep that information to myself for a while. We did discuss that I don't want a c-section again, and she seemed fine with that.

The labs I had done last week came out fine so still no answers on the reason for the past m/cs. She said (like others have suggested) that the first m/c could have been unrelated to the other two. There could have been something wrong with m/c #1 and then the other two were just random. She had reviewed the pathology report on the placenta from m/c #1 and said nothing stood out there. She said we may never know.

She did a sono and there's one baby with a beautiful little heartbeat. Baby's measuring right on. The only hitch to the appointment was she saw *something* in my uterus. She thought it was like a pocket of blood at first and she said it looked old b/c it didn't move or anything. But then she moved the probe around to get at a different angle and then she thought maybe it was a uterine anomaly or something. I'm going back in two weeks for the sonographer to do a full scan and see what it might be. The doc didn't really seem concerned necessarily though.

I have one, but I'll have to take a picture of it and upload it b/c we don't have a scanner. I'll try to do that later tonight.

Ok, keep in mind this is a picture of the sono picture. Best shot I got out of the 10 or so I took. Lol. It's really hard to get a clear picture of another picture. Oh, and I had to frame the shot to take out my identifying information.

ETA - You can see the "something" the OB saw just to the right of the sack. I'm secretly hoping it's a twin and the baby's just hiding (doubtful though b/c it's not a second perfect little bubble like on MBA's sono pic). The OB thought it was old blood at first except for whatever she saw from another angle confused her. So I guess we'll see what it looks like in two weeks.

lavatea, hooray for a heartbeat!!! smile.gif I don't want to mess with your emotions, but I think that u/s looks a lot like our early twin ultrasounds. Our second sac was smaller and harder to see because of the angle, but that little bean kept growing and developed a heartbeat for a while. I'm sending you good strong hopeful thoughts for your little wonderbean and hope that you maybe have two healthy ones in there! goodvibes.gif

Lava--also, even if it is old blood it should be ok.  I also had a "something" on my first u/s and they had to to double check that it wasn't a twin.  It disappeared before 12 weeks and I had a day of spotting.  All was fine!

Love the u/s lava, whatever that other thing/embie/blood is, I am so happy you have a heartbeat!!

Stalker alert!!!! thumb.gif

 

MBA- Congrats on your last day of work!!!  I think it is great that you can stop work now and concentrate on keeping those babies happy and healthy in there.  Stress for sure can reek havoc on people's lives, especially if you are pregnant.  Enjoy your time and I'm excited to come back and stalk and see the next U/S pic.  How do you post pics by the way?  I tried on the IVF thread and it wouldn't let me (gives me this broken box picture).  I used the "insert image" little button up there besides the "insert video" and attached the page that had the pic on it from my computer (it was a word document that had the pic on it) and hit the button and it wouldn't work?  If you get a chance fill me in... we are going to be getting a new puppy and i wanted to post a pic.  TIA  Updated:  Scratch that question.... I figured it out and was able to post the pic!!!  Thanks anyways!!

 

Lava - Congrats on the U/S!!!  Love it!!! When is your next one?  Keeping my fingers crossed for you that there might be another healthy bean in there!!!!  Good luck!!

 

Tear & Maurine - Can't stop by without saying hi to both of my girls!!  Hope all is well.hug.gif

MBA - That's great that you got to see the babies again!

AFM - I'm just riding out the horrible nausea. Next U/S is Tuesday afternoon.

I know I posted somewhere about how work is wearing me out. They're having us work extra hours plus then they call when you're not even scheduled for extra hours and try to get you to come in. I can't be working all of the time. My kids are suffering (if I'm home I'm asleep), my house is suffering, and my body is screaming from being so tired plus the nausea. Praying something changes in our situation and I can either work a different job, different hours, or not at all.

MBA -  Glad to see that you appt went well!!  Yay for strong heartbeats!!!!  The puppy is a German Shorthaired Pointer.  It is a hunting dog, but we don't hunt.  They are very smart dogs w/ lots of energy and learn very quickly, but need lots of exercise.  We had one that was 12.5 and we just lost him to bone cancer recently, bawling.gif so we are excited about getting a new dog b/c the house is way too quiet w/o a dog when it is only DH and I.

 

Lava - It's funny, I read your post and the first thought that came into my head was "I bet she works in health care" and then I looked down at your sig and saw that you are a nurse. That is the problem w/ health care now a days... seems like you get worked like a dog and it is all about the "benjamins".  I think you have every right to say that you can't do the extra hrs b/c of your pregnancy or maybe even get a note from you Dr. That is crazy.... you don't want to end up with high BP b/c you are so over tired and stressed from working so much.  Oh, do people at work know that you are even pregnant?  That might be a problem.  Take care of yourself!!!!!!

Yes, people at work know. I might consider asking the doctor for a note. I guess it will depend on the next few weeks until I see her again. I'm also sort of looking for different work opportunities...

Hi, all. I just got a + HPT (well, I've been getting faint lines daily since Wed/10dpo, for those of you who followed my crazy test fest on BSL; wave.gif miriam and lavatea!). Anyways, I peeked in at my DDC, where everyone but 2 others either had just started TTC or had a surprise, and I felt a bit weird. Our story is we've been TTC for a year with wacky cycles/late ovulation. I ovulated on Easter this cycle, which was pretty cool, so I should be due around the 15th of January. Still feeling anxious, but also excited. We already have a two-year-old boy who adores babies, especially girls. winky.gif

 

I will be 4 weeks pregnant tomorrow for Mothers' Day. I still have to get in to see the obgyn and hoping all is well. I've been feeling a bit lightheaded/dizzy since Thursday night, which I don't remember from last time.

Awesome news SweetBee!

Happy Mothers' Day!

 

Today's test (14dpo/4 weeks pregnant), the darkest yet (I think it looks a bit darker in person). And not even tweaked this time!

Though not as dark as your 14dpo test, miriam, I don't think. winky.gif

 

P.S. I love our camera, but it takes such sharp photos that you can see how horrible I am at dusting our furniture. orngtongue.gif
