Hello Ladies! First of all, Welcome to all of the newcomers! Congratulations! It is wonderful to have you all here and I look forward to getting to know you all!
greenbeing! I am so happy to see you here, HUGE congrats to you, I am so happy for you! (greenbeing and I were April mama thread buddies and had our losses close to each other, so I feel a special bond with her, you)
I was so lost without these boards all last week! I was in need of you all! I had a major freak out after a baby dream. I dreamt that my baby was talking to me and said that he/she couldn't get enough nourishment from me. I didn't think much of it at first, but the next day I didn't have any nausea and my boobs weren't very sore, so I got really upset about the prospect of another loss. Called my midwife and talked about options. After lots of talking I decided that I would feel best to try natural progesterone cream, an herbal formula (wild yam, black haw and false unicorn) and some vitamins (800 IU of E and 1000 mg of C) per her suggestions. That has eased my mind so much, as well as the continued (however fluctuating) sore boobs and nausea. I feel a lot better now, like I am doing something at least and not just sitting back, I guess I needed to feel more involved/active in the whole process.
We are planning a homebirth too, this will be our first child. I am very excited about it, dh too, I think that for me, home is the best place to be.
We haven't told anyone yet, except for my mom. We plan to wait until after the first tri, with the exception of my two best girlfriends, who I am waiting for the right time to tell. Because of that, we won't be dealing with other points of view on our choices for a bit, I am sure that will be interesting, I am collecting good rebuttals.
I forget who has the displaysia, but something I learned when researching whether I would have a pap during pregnancy or not, was that very often pregnancy will clear up cervical abnormalities. I totally understand your worry with the biopsies, I don't know much about those risks, but wanted to let you know that you may not have to worry about the displaysia at all once you have your baby.
I hope you are all doing well, at least as well as can be expected!
