Ok... For whatever reason my previous post didn't post... So here goes the retry... Alive, I'm soooo happy you are here! Your tests look great! They look darker than mine did at those days!

@bad, I hope your foot is okay. Sorry to hear about it being hurt.

AFM.. I only have DS for the week. SO's kiddos went to see their momma for the week.
I have a question though... Do any of you ladies ever feel like you're not pregnant? I just don't feel pregnant. I hit 13 weeks yesterday and the only "issue" I have is super sensitive nipples. Am I alone in this not feeling pregnant?

Until about week 17 I didn't really feel preg. Before then i was sick, tired and starving. I just felt like crap. When I finally felt kicks and starting feeling better is when I finally felt pregnant.

Thank you for the support guys.. sorry to bring anxiety onto the thread when you are all starting to finally settle into your pregnancies. I hate it so bad.. it's a constant struggle to take it one day at a time and enjoy it.. and trust me I want to enjoy it all just afraid I'll jinx it if I let go.

Are stomach cramps normal at this stage? They can get pretty intense but they are not constant and like I said no spotting.

I just got my first beta back (still waiting on progesterone) at 12 DPO and my number was 186. Does that seem to low for how dark my line was?

Cramping that early was normal for me. As for the betas I don't know...

I don't feel pregnant yet either! I'm 14 weeks on Wednesday! I think this time around having a toddler while pregnant I don't think about being pregnant as much. (My 1st and second were 4 years apart and now the second and third will be just two years apart.)Especially bc my fear of MC has subsided now I'm in the second trimester. I think once I start feeling movement it will kick in.

My cervix doesn't feel as firm but I also read that it's pretty difficult to reliably check that at home. Any words of advice on surviving this anxiety? I am going to try to get bloodwork pulled tonight or worst case tomorrow morning. I figure I want to get my fear of low progesterone out of the way since my beta looks like it will be good.
Sorry no words of advice. This is my third pregnancy after my MC and I still worry

The beta seems very good!!

Cramping is normal. To me it always feels like light period cramps.

Yeah.. the pelvic area is very light.. but I have the worst (sorry if TMI) constipation pains in my stomach? Lol that's the only way I can think of to describe it.. maybe it's just trapped gas but it can be a little intense. Movement seems to help and it doesn't last for too long.

Yes, but I have noticed that my FRER lines seem to be lighter than other ones posted online - like threads where people post their FRER and then their associated beta. Mine seem to be lighter at higher betas than others. I don't know. I wouldn't be concerned - your lines are beautiful and I have no doubt your betas will be great! Ah, reading on I see your beta was fanTAStic at 12dpo! Seriously perfectly amazing number!! And NO, not too low for the darkness! Yep, that just agrees with what I have noticed about my lines. I wish I had words of wisdom for the anxiety.

@badwolf09208; Thank you for the help with the digitals! I was going on FDA data about (urine) hcg vs digi result, but I'm feeling better about all this now. I'm also seeing other people post experiences that match with what you posted above! I don't think I'll be testing anymore any time soon!!

I'm so sorry -- ugh, how painful. I am hoping you heal as quickly as possible!!

It may sound 9dd, but when I was prego with my ds I would talk to him, early on, like 4/5 weeks, I don't remember exactly what I said but was facing stress in other areas of my like and I would talk to my little growing being and rub my belly and tell my belly all would be ok and how much I loved him and couldn't wait to meet him, all the fun things we would do together and sometimes just sit or lie down with my hand on my belly, almost protectively, take deep breaths and reassure him that everything would be ok. Wonderful!.so much to look forward to. I know it was comforting for me to feel like I was comforting and protecting him by relieving stress and just letting go, because it was best for the bean.
What sweet advice, ayme! I love it!

@jenjy : I am perfectly happy with my number so far. It is already 8 times higher than what my number was at 14 DPO and today was only 12 DPO. I am not just anxiously waiting my progesterone.. hoping for a good solid number.

I am super happy you got your 3+ weeks on your digital. Let's stick it out this time together alright? Neither one of us is going anywhere.

alive!!! You did it girl. Congrats! That new hcg number sure is purdy... time to realize it's actually gonna happen this time!

maof1 - I bet you're so relieved that DS's surgery is now a thing of the past. Yeah, those kinds are quick... yay for all things going as planned.

edubluv - OMG I totally missed your post about the school shooting. How awful for you and all the kids. Hugs lady.
Also, 23 weeks already? AND moving into your house? Wow, time sure is flying. What colors are you going to paint the rooms?

badwolf - so are you getting better at getting around with a bum ankle? As if you needed something else to deal with, right?

AFM - up late tonight. The baby is apparently practicing the tango in there... no way I could sleep through that kind of ruckus.

I was coming to post that I totally don't feel pregnant. I do feel tired and hungry often, but I don't feel pregnant. I keep feeling my belly and, while it has gotten firmer, it doesn't feel pregnant. I have felt movement a few times, but it has been so sporadic that it gives me lots of time to worry in between, and it is not strong enough that I am sure it is movement. But then today I threw up on my way to work, so that has to count for something, right? I only threw up once with DS, and it was right around 14 weeks. I am 14 weeks tomorrow and it came out of the blue this morning, just like it did with DS.

Menstrual-type cramping is normal at this stage and gas cramping is pretty normal throughout pregnancy, I think. At 12 DPO, that is an amazing hCG number. Are you getting a second one to check doubling time? Congratulations, BTW! You are really pregnant!

@ innacircle: your tango baby made me smile this morning. Can't wait to feel mine in the next few months.

@nsmomtobe : thank you!

Progesterone came back at 35.7 up from 13.1 6 days ago. I will officially stop temping since it doesn't seem to match up with my actual progesterone levels.. Maybe it's got a low battery or something. I am super happy right now with my results. Hopefully my doctor will let me do one more beta lol. Also wondfos are still jerks.. Took one last night knowing my hcg levels and it only gave me a super faint line.

Okay about to try my best with personals from a cell phone.
@jenjy I'm so happy your test have you the 3+ result. You made my morning. Now breathe and stop buying tests. You are totally going to make it this time.
@alivewithyou betas I have no clue about. But every symptom you are experiencing, yes to all of the above! When I felt the cramping early on, I was totally expecting bleeding but then I would puke and tada! I remembered pinching cramps and gassy pains were all part of that 6-9 week deal. I am still very psyched you're here. And happy of course.
@Harmony96 I'm 16 weeks and feeling soccer games in my womb. I swear it's the World Cup in there.
@nsmomtobe I also have moments of not feeling pregnant at 16w, but then the little reminders come right back.
@innacircle , the ankle thing is actually quite serious. I'll explain below.

I hope I didn't miss anyone! If I did, I'm sorry!!

AFM.. First the good news. We are having a GIRL!! Madison Lesh is over 5inches with long legs and amazing energy. It took us 45 minutes to get her to give us a great view. Very much worth the wait. Hubby was still hoping for boy, but when our OB said Madison would be gracing us with her presence this November, he teared up. We had our rev's wife (who is pretty much our real mom at this point) and her daughter with us, so it was a lovely experience.

And as for the ankle, I've got crutches for now. And a babysitter. The ER doctors couldn't find a major fracture but said there is definitely a hairline fracture causing me circulation issues. So I get to see a real orthopedic this week, and they will determine what to do. This was apparently god's way of saying I need to actually follow bedrest orders. We think my MIL now understands the risks of me working now, but who knows. She always replies with "that's unfortunate" and it always gives me the feeling she just doesn't. Oh well. I'm dealing. Bored. And browsing online for Madison's wardrobe.

That also reminds me. Sunday night when we got back from the ER and I passed out, Connor came to me in a dream. He was as grown as he would be today and had his pretty blue eyes and blonde hair. He was rubbing my belly and said, "my sister is growing big and strong." It was so nice to feel close to him still.

It was and still is really awful. Just happened a week ago. There is great sadness for so many.

For DS, his room with be a light brown and with a light blue accent wall. This goes with his beautiful baby quilt.

For new baby, grey and with a yellow accent wall. This will also go with new baby's quilt I am currently making!

I can't wait to get started!


I'm loving the kick and craziness going on in there. So far it hasn't kept me awake tho!

Congrats on the baby girl! How do pronounce the middle name? Just like it looks?

That is pretty special about your dream of your DS! Seriously sweet.

It's pronounced as it looks! It was my grandmother Jocelyn's stage name, and she was an amazing woman. I'm so excited!

So I get to see a real orthopedic this week, and they will determine what to do. This was apparently god's way of saying I need to actually follow bedrest orders. We think my MIL now understands the risks of me working now, but who knows. She always replies with "that's unfortunate" and it always gives me the feeling she just doesn't. Oh well. I'm dealing. Bored. And browsing online for Madison's wardrobe.

That also reminds me. Sunday night when we got back from the ER and I passed out, Connor came to me in a dream. He was as grown as he would be today and had his pretty blue eyes and blonde hair. He was rubbing my belly and said, "my sister is growing big and strong." It was so nice to feel close to him still.
I hope everything works out with your ankle and bed rest. I actually could not use crutches while I was pregnant because my balance was too bad, so I ended up using a walker.

That dream made me cry. It's wonderful that you got to see Connor and it brought you peace. It sounds like he will be watching over Madison.

That has to be a reassuring sign, although I'm sure not pleasant to deal with!

Thank you! Yes, the tests are put away! I am thrilled for you about Madison! Congratulations on your girl!! I'm so sorry about your leg!
Such a sweet, wonderful dream!! What a special moment with Connor. I am tearing up thinking about this. Hugs to you!!!

@edubluv , the rooms sound great! Are you crafting other things as well besides the baby quilt?

I'm sure I had aches and pains and such -- but it's been too long to remember! Sorry no help here!

AFM -- All the world smells like rotten dog food. (OK, I don't actually know what rotten dog food smells like, but it's the best description I can think of. Everything just smells yucky.) This same yuckiness is something I remember well from my pregnancies with DS and DD, especially DS's. Haven't had it in my mc's!! So it seems like a good sign. I'll be 6 weeks in two days.

Omg!!!!! My hips and shoulders were KILLING ME for about the first 3months. They feel much better now. I was in sooooo much pain. Chiro and acu helped!

I'm making some knit hats, a crocheted afghan and since I have such a strong vibe it's a girl I
*might* sew a few outfits. Gonna be super busy setting my house up and I'm glad I'm a teacher and get the summer off to prep.


Isn't great how something as terrible as morning sickness can be reassuring!? Sorry the world stinks of dog food. Yuck!

@edubluv . Thanks for the info on the chiro. I went before I got pregnant because of my scoliosis. I end up with one leg almost 2 inches longer than the other because of it. Just my right hip seriously starts to hurt after as little as 10 mins of laying on my right side.

@badwolf092087 : Congrats on your baby girl! I love the name you have picked out and your dream sounds amazing.
@Harmony96 : Congrats on your healthy baby boy!
@maof1 : No hip pain yet but but starting to get lower back pain.. definitely tell things are shifting. lucky i already have chiropractor appointments paid for so I will be going every 3 weeks for the next little while.
@edubluv : I want to start crocheting baby booties and probably whatever I can teach myself to do. Probably a good way to stay busy. I can't wait for full blown morning sickness although I have been getting it a little in the mornings.. mostly just nausea.
@jenjy : happy to hear about your increasing symptoms. You are keeping my hope strong.

AFM: I am slowly starting to calm down. Seeing my numbers so strong is really helpful. I'm starting to realize that there is nothing I can do so I should just enjoy my baby now. We can definitely sense him spiritually. although it will be hilarious if HE ends up being a SHE. lol.

Here is my 13DPO test today. The test line is now darker than the control so I am happy. I think that shows continued progress. Haven't heard back from my doctor yet so not sure when/if I will do another beta. I am also now having to search for a new OB/GYN since my last one was terrible. Soo.. should be fun.
