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
I have to charge my phone midday b/c I keep binging on searches for everything pregnancy related... Freaking me out, man.
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
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).
