Wengrin - I'd go with your gut and if the appointment is what you want I'd make one... Your reasoning is sound, being that unwell for that long is rough xxxx

Wengrin -- I would definitely ask for another scan before two weeks. A week might not give you a conclusive answer, but it very well might. And if that heart is still beating and you're still in a waiting game, at least you know that much. I feel for you so much.

Chuord -- Such a promising place you're in! A good chance this month, a plan B all ready to go, and a DH ready and willing to do his part for the testing! (That sounded bad, but you know, some husbands are more than a little reluctant to go under the microscope.)

Oxford -- Exciting for you, too! So glad you're feeling better, and that the meds seem to be helping even things out. I generally O around CD 11 or 12. Maybe that will be your new normal.

Faith -- Congrats! I'll join in the advice party and say that telling now or waiting is a personal choice, but don't do it before you're ready because you feel you owe it to anyone. Five or six month's notice for leave is plenty of time to put things in order. And, if you have any reason to think it will hurt your situation, wait as long as you can. I don't feel that pregnant women are discriminated against where I work, but the culture is a bit out of the corporate norm. I told my boss and coworkers early last time, and then had to deal with everyone knowing when I miscarried. It was okay, but I'm waiting longer this time. Going to have fun watching them think I'm just getting unapologetically fatter! I think the exception to the "when in doubt, wait" wisdom would be if your pregnancy is interfering with your work at all (morning sickness, frequent appointments, bikini model concerns). In that case, tell your employer right away *in writing* so that you're protected against being fired for those reasons (in the US, employers are required to provide reasonable accommodations). And my final piece of advice is not to let your boss find out from anyone but you. So when you're ready to tell, tell them first. Good luck!

AFM, Doing okay. My next appointment is on the 17th, so I'm trying to distract myself. Pregnancy time just crawls! I'm sleeping weird and rather puffy by the end of the day, but otherwise pretty close to normal. I've had some food smell aversions, but not much in the way of real nausea. By ovulation, I'm six weeks tomorrow.

(And I'm NOT getting ahead of myself and looking at names, and I'm NOT already, like, completely convinced it's a girl, and I've NOT already plotted our cosleeping setup for this one.)

Right, my distractions...

I am traveling to a health event this weekend, which I'm fine with. I'm always run down once the week starts again and I haven't had any days off, but the travel itself I don't mind. I'm the queen of finding good hotels for government rate, and I get to watch cable tv, which we don't have at home. When I get back, DH and I are planning on getting serious about Christmas planning. It always sneaks up on me (and how does that happen when the days are crawling by at a pregnant pace?).

M/C at 8 weeks -- May 2000. DS #1 -- March 2001. DS #2 -- November 2002. (Ten year break!) DD -- October 2011. M/C at 8 weeks -- May 2013. Expecting #4 late July.

Oh, also, I think it was Oxford who described the "sample" room -- I am dying over here that they dim the lamp.

I love that your NOT obsessing over baby details - lol!!! So when your ready to share said details let us know wink1.gif you sound and feel like you are in an awesome space while waiting - loving it!
Btw really dumb question, you count the weeks from your last AF right? Even if you know o date?

Chuord -- Most accurate is to count from fourteen days before your O. If you have a 28 dau cycle and O on day 14, then your dates will match the ones they give you. If your cycle is longer or shorter, though, it'll be off. My cycle is shorter, so until my later u/s, the doctor always thinks my due date is later than what I do. I don't argue with them, though. Not going to nitpick over a few days. They always end up moving my due date up after my ultrasound.

M/C at 8 weeks -- May 2000. DS #1 -- March 2001. DS #2 -- November 2002. (Ten year break!) DD -- October 2011. M/C at 8 weeks -- May 2013. Expecting #4 late July.

Wengrin - Sending you lots and lots and lots of love.

Sorry everyone that I have been absent. I made myself take a short break from all things baby. I missed you all. It's bedtime in my time zone, but I want to properly catch up with you all tomorrow morning.

Married to my high school sweetheart. We have four awesome kids.

Mamablue- great to have you back! I hope the break has done you good and your zen is high my friend. Even if not, I'm looking forward to hearing all your news!

Chuord- your specialist sounds really good- very caring and human! It's so easy for them to just see us as bodies and forget the huge emotional charge that goes with TTC. I think you have chosen him well. Also, he must have quite a reputation if you couldn't originally get an appointment until June. I'm so pleased that you are getting a bit of help, I know what a huge scary decision it is!

Primal- take it easy with your cable tv and call room service! You have been working such a long time, the things we all do for our families :-). Looking forward to hearing your baby names... Whenever you even start thinking about planning that stuff!! ;-)
I'm relieved to hear that you o on cd11 or 12, I was thinking my body was messed up again and now o was abnormally early instead of late. At least a shorter cycle will help me get more chances in ;-)

Wengrin- if you feel like another scan will help you, you go for it. You know your body better than others and two weeks sounds like such an arbitrary time period. Keep taking care of yourself and being kind. Don't worry about the house, it's small stuff compared to the syo you are in. If it's upsetting you to see the housework slide, can you get in a one off cleaner? I know it's expensive but if it lifts a load off your mind to go play out with the kids and arrive home to a sparkly house to relax in, it could be worth it. As for DS and dd, I bet they are concerned about you, because they clearly adore you!! You as a person, not just what you can do for them. They will be there supporting you I. Their own little ways and then when you are through this uncertainty they can have your fabulous super mum undivided attention! In the meantime they will wait for you, it's a marathon, not a sprint, so they sometimes need to be patient the way you always are with them. I can hear what an awesome mum (mom) you are, so give yourself a break :-) hope DH is still stepping up and supporting you. The global support team is still here too

For me, I think I has happened but still waiting for confirmation. Yes, chuord, I have still been doing some cheeky temping!! Although I sId I wouldn't, I really needed to see what effect these drugs are having on my body. I really don't like taking drugs, but if it reboots my sust it will be well worth all the nasty side effects.

Glad the sperm sample story brought some lightness for you. Apparently there are a series of rooms they go through to get to the final room, like different waiting rooms so they don't bump into each other. I imagine it's like the doors in Alice in wonderland! Then, do you know what the final room is called??

....

....

The relaxation room!!!!!!

Lol.

Too funny about the Relaxation Room! I totally envision Alice in Wonderland...

Mamablue glad you're doing well!

Chuord hope you get to use those FRER's soon and keep feeling great!

Ladies I took little DS to a play date today with our toddler playgroup. It was good to get out and see friends. I have shared the news with the other moms in the group, so it was a little tough having to talk about it openly especially because almost everyone else is pregnant. Not because I am so much jealous of them, but it is hard to be depressed about pregnancy and have everyone else be bubbly about it...(theirs I mean, not about my situation). It was actually a little baby shower for one of the moms..she is due in 6 weeks. So we had to talk about her baby plans and of course be joyful for her, which is hard when I am not sure if my baby's heart is beating or not. But the benefits of seeing everyone and DS having fun playing with his buddies far outweighed the negatives. So I need to push myself to interact more. It definitely helps distract you from your own problems.

Hope everyone is doing well. Happy Friday!

I didn't call the doctors office today but I think I will Monday or Tuesday. Insurance will pay for it, if I'm having cramping etc. I will let you all know. :-)

By the way- Primal thanks for all of the good expert nursing advice. It is so nice to have nurses here (as well as friends). Hope you enjoy the hotel and some time to yourself. I love going out of town for work. It always seemed like a get away even though not a vacation. Nice to eat out and have someone pick up your towels for you!

Thanks for all the support!

It's good to catch up with you all.

Wengrin - I'm glad you were able to get out of the house and visit with friends. It's good for the soul. I read that you were struggling with your decision to continue progesterone. I think you are wise to continue taking it. My understanding is that progesterone supports viable pregnancies in cases where the mom is progesterone deficient. When a pregnancy is not viable, progesterone isn't enough to keep it going. It may delay the onset of bleeding by a short amount of time (hours/days), but it alone cannot sustain or extend life. I always found that reassuring, as I didn't feel like it was a kindness to keep someone terminal on forced life support. Progesterone won't do that, and that's good. I hope that these uncertain times are soon resolved and that you get good news at your next appt.

Chourd - I don't know a lot about AMH. My doctors (first and second RE's) said that estradiol and an antral follicle count (AFC) were the most indicative of ovarian health and reserve. I think that an unusual (high or low) AMH with a high FSH may be a red flag, but that AMH results alone do not give a diagnosis. I'm interested in what you learn from your fertility specialists, and it sounds like you are on the right path! And Yay! for a great O and well-timed BD.

Faithrising - Congrats! That's a dark BFP!

Oxford - I am so excited for you and your awesome EWCM! I ovulated on cd12 the month I conceived, so a little early is no problem. I'm so happy that just around two weeks of metformin has made a noticeable difference for you. Wooohoooo!

Primal - I hear you about getting puffy at the end of the day. I start out every day looking svelte and slowly decline into looking like a heffalump. Today I woke up in heffalump mode and I was none too pleased, as I'm already running out of clothing that is not sweatpants and stretchy maxi-skirts. I'm only 7w4d I must hide this baby for awhile yet!

Thank you all for you support during my freak out. I found your words very calming (especially yours Oxford). It was good that I just let go for a few days. Nothing physically has changed, but my sanity is back and I am ready to enjoy this part of my life without worry. Sure, I can't control what may happen, but I'm going to be happy that there is a tiny baby inside me.

Married to my high school sweetheart. We have four awesome kids.

I forgot to say! So, 11 year old DS had a cold last week and continued to have a sore throat this week. I took him to the doctor, and the rapid strep was negative. Two days later, though, the strep culture was positive. So I'm really wondering if DH's sore throat wasn't strep all along. DH is better now, so I don't think I'll ever know.

I'm at the hotel tonight, and DH is texting me that DD is sick, throwing up and resisting sleep. Hoping it's short lived, since I'm not there to help. He is so comfortable in the primary caregiver role, though. So different from when my boys were small and it was always up to me; I never could have worked this kind of job with my first husband.

Wengrin -- Thanks, that's very sweet. smile.gif My expertise is limited, since I haven't worked clinically in a couple of years, but I'm glad you found it helpful. I just think that it's cruel to make a woman in your situation wait more than a week for an update. You would be able to see the heart rate, size of the yolk sac, etc. I'm just not very patient!

I'm still thinking of you and hoping for the best.

Hope everyone else is doing well!

M/C at 8 weeks -- May 2000. DS #1 -- March 2001. DS #2 -- November 2002. (Ten year break!) DD -- October 2011. M/C at 8 weeks -- May 2013. Expecting #4 late July.

Thanks ladies!

Primal I hope DD feels better soon. Poor girl. You don't think she caught strep too, do you? I have heard strep can be really dangerous for little ones if not caught early. So great that DH is comfortable in the caregiver mode...that is a huge comfort for you, especially being away. Hope she shakes this and it doesn't last long.

Mamablue- I completely understand taking a hiatus and giving yourself time to unplug and relax. Sometimes the internet can be my worst enemy. I find myself compulsively searching and looking up things...which is never good. My dad has a full blown internet addiction. All he does is email his work contacts and follow up on church stuff that he is involved in, (and google every curious thought that crosses his mind) but he is connected to his laptop 26 hours a day. When they visit, my mom and I always try to remind him to put that stuff away and be present with his grandchildren. Inevitably they leave to go home and he calls saying he misses the kids and he wished he had spent more time with them, etc. The Internet is a wonderful thing but it can consume you. I try to be conscious of that...it is so tempting though.

Also Mamablue thank you for the info re: progesterone. I did continue it, since I was progesterone deficient with last pregnancy. Like you said, if it will sustain a viable pregnancy then I need to give this pregnancy a chance until (if) I find out that it is not healthy.

So I do plan to call the Dr's office on Tuesday. That will be 8 days since my last scan, and will give me a mid-2 weeks update. If only to see the yolk sac measurement and if the heart is still beating. (Or not). It will be good to peek inside and see what the little nugget is up to. I can justify the cramping because I did have some very odd pain on Thursday of this week. I really thought I was going to see a gush of blood but never did. It was a very low, uterine cramping and a strange snapping feeling down there.... almost like the contents of my uterus was starting to release and come apart. So I can just describe those symptoms when I call...

Hope everyone has a good weekend!

Morning ladies! Wengrin hugs hope you are doing something fun and distracting this weekend.
Primal - how is dd? You sure have had a rough go this last week with the family - fx you don't get sick wink1.gif I think being away for work was probably a good thing to keep you safe...
Mares - how's the house hunt?
Oxford - what are you up to this weekend?
Mamablue - apart from a slight manic google search this morning, I'm really zen too, I'm going with that principle of believe and it will happen... Only this time I'm imagining a healthy baby rather than just getting pg...
Lovely - how are you traveling?
Chrissy - hugs, how's life treating you?
Anyone lurking and want to join in?

I spent some time yesterday icing Christmas cakes (almond and then white) it was fun, dh helped (but needed heaps of direction as it was new to him) Ive only done it once or twice myself but have helped and watched mum heaps of times... She did cake decorating as a hobby to entertain her while a stay at home mum.. Such a day if happy memories! What tradition is your favourite for Christmas?

Wengrin, good to hear you were able to feel some relief after seeing friends! Hoping for the best. I think it's wise to make the appointment, to give you peace one way or the other.

Chuord, I don't know charts super well but that looks good from what I do know! Fx for you!

Oxford, fx for you too!

Primal, the distance is a good thing--don't get sick! I'm trying not to get excited here, too. I have plenty of things to distract myself with but I keep getting worried. Did you tell/do you plan on telling family yet? (I may have missed this back in the thread). I'll only be 7 or 8 weeks at Xmas and are trying to decide if we should tell family yet.

Mamablue--totally understand that. Glad to see you back and well smile.gif I have to charge my phone midday b/c I keep binging on searches for everything pregnancy related... Freaking me out, man.

AFM:
Thanks for the advice on work. I told the owners. For clarification, we are a teeny tiny design firm and I was the first employee hired on. We worked out of their house for almost a year. I used to pick up their kid from school. The wife that started the company went through fertility issues for 5 years and has been sort of talking me through everything and totally knows the risks involved. If I were in corporate America no way would I have said anything, but they are like family and they run the business much like a family. I should have clarified that more smile.gif we haven't told anyone else yet and that somehow doesn't feel as weird as I thought it would.

On Wednesday 12.05 my hcg was 371.4 and progesterone was 23.2. That would put me at around 4.5 weeks. I didn't hear anything about a follow up test. Now to hunt for a midwife that delivers at a center. And a center for that matter.

Cramps, tender breasts, a bit of tiredness and not really hungry for anything except anything pickled or vinegary.

Chuord--for Xmas I make baklava and my mom makes some Lebanese food (kibbe, fatayad, tabbouleh....nomnomnom).

Faithrising - I am friends with a family from Lebanon and I love to eat the food the mama makes. There is a salad she makes with herbs sprinkled on it that is so good. Fattoush, I think? I hope that's right. Anyway, it's a good thing I don't live with them, or I'd grow quite plump stuffing my face with amazing foods I can't pronounce. That and I'd be an insomniac from all the Turkish coffee. privateeyes.gif

Yes! Fattoush is FANTASTIC! I blame my mom's family for my love of all things garlicky/zesty/bitter. If you avoid the meat you shouldn't gain too fast smile.gif mujadara is quite amazing too if you serve it with a lemony salad (fattoush, tabbouleh, salada, or even just parsley with lemon juice, olive oil and salt). My parents drink about 2 pots of coffee a day each (only a slight exaggeration) but I don't think they've done Turkish coffee. Is that the one where you add cardamom?

This year I have some time off before Christmas so I'm going to make stuffed grape leaves.

Where abouts do you live again mamaBlue? Do you have any traditions for holidays?

Yum! To all of the above... I think Turkish coffee is the really thick extra sweet one in tiny serves? It's delicious but I get d.t. Shakes from normal coffee so haven't had any for ages

Ok lost post... Ladies I would love your advice, tomorrow I have my gp appointment to discuss my last AMH results and find out if I should do any other tests before my specialist on 17th... So any recommendations for specific tests would be appreciated (I may have to wait till a new month to have them but alls good)
Also I'm taking the plunge and taking a frer tomorrow morning only 10dpo (4 before AF) which seems way early but I felt a twinge from 6dpo so anything is possible... Please keep fx for me as I haven't had a positive test yet lol

Ladies, bad news. Red spotting when I woke up. I wish I could say I was surprised, but I just don't feel nearly as sickly as I have at this point in my other pregnancies. I think I am about to miscarry.

Mb, I hope it's nothing! Every pregnancy is different and spotting generally doesn't always mean m/c. Maybe make an appointment with your doc so you know what's going on for sure.

Mamablue - huge hugs, I'm with faith and Chrissy, hoping that it's just one of those pregnancies with strong spotting... Will do some energy work now xx

Done - energy definitely went to you both... If you feel so unsure why don't you request an ultrasound tomorrow like Wengrin, also will it help if instead of focussing on potential miscarriage you think about holding baby in your arms after a safe birth? It has given me strength to stay calm and positive, I hope it helps you xxx

Thanks for letting me express my fears everyone. Hopefully it's just a hematoma. I spoke with my obgyn. He reassured me that the odds are in my favor since I've already seen a heartbeat. He's going to have me come in tomorrow morning for an ultrasound to check on the baby. I wish shared his optimism, but the lack of my typical nausea and heartburn has me on edge. I keep telling myself that every pregnancy is different and that my lack of usual symptoms might mean that I'm in for an easier first trimester. I hope that's what's going on now. The spotting and cramping haven't worsened since this morning, so that is good. I appreciate all the kind words. Your positive words are helping me to stay sane. xoxo
