I am so very sorry.
Pregnancy after loss - Page 6
Will be thinking of you both on Friday. Looking forward to your happy updates!
We have our first midwife appointment on Friday. We only got to have one appointment last time because we found out about our missed miscarriage the next day. I'm feeling confident about this appointment since I'm having so many symptoms and U/S went great last week, but I'm trying to decide whether or not I want her to try for the doppler. Would be thrilling if she can find the heartbeat but nerveracking if she can't. Any thoughts from experience?
I will be praying for both of you on Friday!!!!!!!!
Molls- How far along are you? That would make a difference in what I would decide. I would say if you are 10+ weeks. I would give it a try. I would have the same worries you do if it was less than that.
AFM- I get some beta and progesterone results tomorrow. Which means today, all I did was analyze my symptoms. I wish I could just have a pregnancy that I was oblivous to any chance of something being wrong and go on my merry way. Instead I focus on every symptom all the time. I am pretty sure my boobs are only sore from me touching them so much:)
Molls- I know it is a hard decision. I know I would probably go for it. But then if I didn't hear the heartbeat, I would be worried until the next appointment. But if you did hear it wouln't that be great!!!!
AFM- I am hoping to start the good new train. I got my results back. A week ago at 18 DPO my numbers were Hcg 351 and progesterone 14. This week at 35 DPO, they are Hcg 6028 and progesterone 24. So it is doubling around every 40 hours and progeserone is up by 10!!!!!! I am so excited. Let see how this high last. I have an u/s in two weeks and hope to see the heartbeat then!!!!
With my last pregnancy (that resulted in a baby) we opted just for the fetoscope. At the 12 week midwife appointment, we just chatted & she measured my uterus. I was confident that baby was ok & didn't worry at all for the heartbeat. I felt the baby move before anyone heard the heartbeat. This time I'm feeling more & more confident as the days pass by. I had my mc at 7w1d last pregnancy, & I'm past that point now. I know I'm not in the clear, but my symptoms are so strong. So sick all the time, my boobs hurt so bad that just pulling off my bra makes me wince a bit, & my nipples are always hard. Seriously, always. I don't have a nagging feeling like I did in my m/c pregnancy. I guess if everything isn't ok I'll find out eventually. For me, I know I would be more worried if we listened for a heartbeat & didn't hear it, so I wouldn't do it too soon. I say do what will give you the least amount of stress until your next appointment.
Hope everyone is doing well today.
Well I didn't have to make the decision. The midwife dated me differently, she put me at 8w4d, though I disagree. I just posted another thread about that... but since she put me there she just said "darn, too early for the doppler but we'll definitely hear it at your next appointment!"
My symptoms are convincing and I'm starting to feel like this baby might actually happen, so it was a wonderful, happy appointment. Nice to occasionally have the decision taken out of your hands. :) Thanks for the advice ladies!
Thanks everyone! And congratulations, Sagewinna!!! I am so happy for you, too!
I will have another scan in 2.5 weeks to confirm if it is going to be twins. My OB is amazed that I had twins twice in a row, but I am not holding my breath. But now I know why I feel so extremely pregnant, both of them make hcg right now, so it's mayhem in there, lol!
