100%mom M Anna, how are you?

How is everyone else? It's been a long time since I've been on Mothering. I'm expecting again. Should be due around June 21st. Some days I feel sick enough to be pg and other days I feel too good. Sunday I will be 6 wks. I hope morning sickness really kicks in so I'll feel pg for sure.

Thanks, uriver. It's not so much what the number is, but the comparison of the two. They should be doubling every 48-72 hours, and that's a doubling time of over 600 hours. I think the baby died a week or so ago (REALLY early) and since my body always takes forever to catch on, it's still trying to grow everything. It's going to be weeks before I physically miscarry. I'm trying to focus on what a miracle Catherine is - two miscarriages before and two after. There won't be any more babies.

M Anna Well, I'm just waiting to miscarry #4 . My hcg went from 3,587 on Thursday to 3,986 yesterday. It should have been around 10,000 or so. Now I just wait. It's going to be probably 3-4 weeks in all likelihood. I'm in shock and numb.

Catherine is into every too! If you take your eyes off her for a SECOND... Although sometimes she'll just quietly sit and play with something for a long time. I think it's just to put us off our guard, lol.

Sienna-forever Uriver I hope you're feeling a little better xxxx

M Anna - wishing you quiet congratulations, I understand your fears but wish you all the best for a happy, healthy pregnancy. Just look at little Catherine to know it can happen. And 40 is not old! Xxx

M Anna Sorry I've been MIA so long! Happy birthday to the birthday babies!

Clearly I'm not doing so hot at the NFP. I think my cycles are off (they started right after Catherine was born) because we had the surprise pregnancy of Gabriel (who we lost at 11 weeks) and now, 2 cycles later, I'm pregnant again. I'm positive I'm going to miscarry. I didn't even want to get a doctor involved - just wait until there's no hb at home (I have a doppler) and miscarry naturally. My husband said that we have to give this baby every chance at survival so I have an appointment on Friday morning to see the OB. I'm only about 4.5 weeks right now so it's early. My OB had said at my mc f/u appointment that she would get me right in with a high risk doc if I got pregnant again so I could start on heparin shots. I feel like it's already doomed because I"m so old (almost 40) and the baby probably has chromosomal problems. I've lost 3 of the past 4 pregnancies (not counting this one) so my odds are poor. Anyway, sorry to be a downer.

Catherine is doing well. She wants to walk but isn't yet. She cruises up and down furniture and can stand on her own for a while. She has four teeth (two up, two down) and is doing so-so on solids.

I doubt you need the newest edition but I don't know what is in it. I found NFP to be really hard to do properly while breastfeeding and without AF. When my cycles were regular and there was no baby at the breast it was easy.

Sienna-forever I want to give it a go!

Only just had one cycle at 11 months pp, so will chart for a while and read the book.

Really need to do it right as I just can't imagine another pregnancy after 3 preemies, too scared!

08-09-2014 10:14 PM
Sienna-forever Thanks uriver, how's amberleys weight doing now? Saffron still a teeny 15 and a half pounds! But healthy and very active and following her line on the growth charts.
08-09-2014 02:06 PM
unuselyriver aww sienna foever sorry af should up now and happy b-day sorry it was late i hope your little girl heart has close up we know amberly has not as of last week and the changes of it close up is slim but i am sure it will be ok i was just haven a bad day yesterday
08-09-2014 01:06 AM
Sienna-forever It's a long and hard road isn't it, we also go back to cardiology in October, and I really hope we both get good news.
It terrifies me the thought of surgery even though all being well it should be only an overnight stay for us. But really hoping it closes by itself for both our girls.
I've been a bit down too but think it's a bit of birthday blues, it was my birthday yesterday and then also my first af arrived since saffron. Trying to think positive and plan saffrons birthday now. Xx

unuselyriver well today has been a really hard day for me i think i am dealing with depression i have been breaking down and crying alot today and think how much has happen over the last 3 yrs and its a bit overwhelming but i am so glad to finally have are rainbow here even though it was a really long road we go back to her heart doc on oct 20 to see if they want to go in and fix the whole in her heart at last look which was last week it had not change any and the right side of her heart has got bigger so we where hoping out of all odds it would get smaller but it has not from what they told us today when they made the appt for oct so it is a little hard to deal with that are baby will probable go under the knife before she is even a year old so i guess are long road is not over yet
