Sticky vibes mamamash! Hope your progesterone levels go up quickly.
Just scheduled my first two "official" appointments. Feb 11 with the intake nurse and Feb 27th with the midwife! I will be 10 and 12 weeks respectively.
So nice to hear all of your updates and see all of your u/s pics! Woohoo!! I'm just over 6 weeks and had my first appointment last week with my midwife, blood work all came back great except my thyroid is a little off... Apparently the new guidelines are wanting you to be in the 1-3 range and they'd like me to be between 1-2, I was 3.2. So they prescribed synthroid and I started my first dose today (very low dose 25mcg). Bummer is that I take it first thing in the morning with a glass of water and can't eat or drink anything else for at least 30 mins, preferably an hour. I'm alright with this right now (no food sounds good, I have to force myself to eat), just worried about later when I have nausea or get hungry and want to eat. But, I guess it's just something I'll have to learn to deal with... And, I'm not supposed to take any vitamins or supplements for 4 hours, so that will be an adjustment as well since I break up my vitamins/supplements throughout the day, I take some with breakfast, lunch and dinner. Oh well, just have to make some changes. Roll with the punches!! Right!?!
I'm thinking of doing an 8 week u/s but might wait and do it at 10 weeks, haven't decided yet... but thinking I'll probably do the 8 week as I doubt I can wait for 10 weeks!
CDsmom - looking good! it must be exciting to have that lovely picture.
i am on prometrium too. i have been on it since ovulation (thanks, fertility clinic) and my dose is much higher (3x a day, 200mg pill). I really hate the side effects, and I am counting down the days until i'm done taking it.
My doc checked my progesterone at 7 days past ovulation (when it was too low), and again when i got a postive HCG blood test (when it was in an acceptable range). they haven't checked it since, i assume because they think this dose is plenty.
dakipode -- glad to hear your SCH appears to be clearing up! cute little bean!
Depends - will you be doing any prenatal testing? In particular the nuchal scan? Because that seems to be the only time sensitive thing right now, since it has to be done between 11 and 13 weeks.
I still need to discuss what testing we'll be doing with my husband, but I think we'll take this, and if it comes back positive then do whatever the name of the new test that looks for fetal chromosomes in the mother's blood (which apparently is really expensive by itself, but if we're getting it because the nuchal scan comes back positive then insurance should cover it).
Ah, OK...this is my first pregnancy and I didn't even know about this. I'll leave it at 12 weeks then. :)
