Name: Heather (I'm 38, btw, will be 39 in June, dh is 40)
Due Date: October 30 (but based on my history, probably more like mid-October, but it would be fun to have a Halloween baby!).
# of losses: 1 (4/09) 8/9 weeks, probably a blighted ovum
Living Children: 3--DS, nearly 10, DD 7, DD 5.5
How are you feeling?:Tired, some crampiness, some brief moments of nausea, I get really wiped out around dinner time--starving, light-headed, exhauted--all of a sudden (this has always been the case when I 'm pregnant), boobs hurt a bit here and there (I've never really had breast tenderness as a PG symptom). I had a lot of hip and pelvic pain--maybe implantation?-for a few days, now it's just intermittent.
Emotionally--I'm cautiously really happy, but a bit anxious about the lines on the HPT's I've taken. I've had 7 positives, starting at 11 DPO, but they have been very light, even yesterday at 14dpo-but I know that lighter/lightening lines don't have to mean m/c, and my levels of hydration have varied a lot. I think the darker positive I got at 11dpo might have been a freakishly sensitive test or one with more dye? I've gotten a lot of reassurance here on MDC about light lines--a line is a line is a line, and I am pregnant!
Ultrasound scheduled?: Not yet, but I'm going to call my midwife and see if I can set one up around 7 weeks.
Bloodwork?: No, and probably won't. I think it would ultimately just add to my anxiety, and while it could be reassuring, what is going to happen will happen. But I actually feel pretty calm and positive.
Heather, Mama to DS(10) DD(7.5),DD(6)
