I just wanted to tell you I am so sorry for your loss at 7.5 weeks. This was exactly me, except I was 8wks or so, it was a terrible experience and now I just freak out and worry every time I get pregnant, this'll be the second pregnancy since my miscarriage and one was the best thing that happened to me, my 3yo daughter. I waited exactly 3 months. It was SO hard. And many of my coworkers guessed, especially with my bionic nose powers! Ha! I would wait atleast another few weeks but for me? My sisters already know, and I told them I might miscarry again and there is not much I can do. It made it a little easier to be around them, having them know. So if next time you see your mom, just tell her if it feels right and tell her it's a secret. First grandchildren are SO EXCITING right! Yay babies! Just thought I'd give my 2cents. And mama-- no guilt. Eat what you want. Just try your best. If something sounds disgusting or delish--- listen to the body!
And ladies, thanks for the kind words. I really don't know HOW that HCG test could possibly have been <.5, which is a tiny tiny amount of hormone and the farthest from being pregnant you could get! But get this... now I'm told that last nights' pee test (I went to urgent care to get an obgyn to check me out, I was freaking) and they now tell me the URINE test was in fact negative!!! They told me it was positive when I was there. I'm so confused. I still feel pregnant. I think? It's really weird, because I am unsure. And it's SO early to know, so I'm just trying to go with the flow. This is certainly a story for the ages, isn't?
Thanks tillymonster:) And, I love the 'bionic nose powers' - I totally have bionic nose powers, it's insane! I think I've decided to wait to tell my Mom until after we hear/see the heartbeat at an ultrasound - planning to make an appointment tomorrow for the following week when I'll be 8 weeks, hope they can fit me in! Sorry about the stress you must have gone through with the weird test results and confusion, how awful! Glad you're still with us!!!
mrsandmrs - I am the same way about so many things right now food-wise, ugh! We had pretty much transitioned to using coconut oil for cooking and the smell of it when it's heating is making me gag! I'm so bummed because I know it's so much better to use it for cooking (and it's so good for you) but I have to cover my nose when I smell it now, blah! I sure hope this passes soon. I too haven't puked yet but sometimes I just wish that I would so I could feel better. And, hope eggs sound good to you again soon:)
LLtheTinkerbell - I was told last pregnancy that my iron was a 'little' low so I supplemented with an additional 18mg and have done so again this pregnancy just in case. Hope that your supplement makes you feel better soon. And, I don't think that you are "jinxing things by hoping", we all need to keep hope alive in our pregnancies and I think we all have a bit of "worrywart fear-mongerer" in us, completely natural!
