Need to research more on the hypersalivation because that's horrible this time and makes the nausea so much worse.
Oh goodness and that your 2nd tri brings some relief - has it with your past pregnancies?

welcome to this little group - sorry you fit here

I have a 6yo dd and a 3yo ds. I had a miscarriage around 6 weeks in between them. I just found out last Thursday that I'm expecting again. I had a beta done and my levels are 33.4 today and I'm 3w6d (super early!) I was so nervous when I was pregnant with my ds after the miscarriage. It hasn't gotten any better this time around. Every cramp, every ache...every stabbing pain freaks me out. I'm just praying that this baby sticks and I don't have to go through that emotional roller coaster again.
I understand that if I didn't have that miscarriage then I wouldn't have my precious ds, whom I adore so very much. He is such an amazing little guy. I couldn't have asked for a better son. but I still miss my bean.

Also, my names Ashley!
welcome, and sorry to you too. I kwym about missing the lost baby, but yet knowing that you wouldn't have the LO you do have without having lost the other. It's a very strange mix of emotions.

I kwym - I likely would maybe say she came a little early... but even then only if outright asked about when she was born, kwim?
Our friends had their DD the day before our DS2. Technically, she was a preemie - the Ped estimated her at just 36 weeks, possibly a bit earlier - but she had no NICU time, and no troubles with nursing (thank goodness!!). My friend very rarely ever mentions her being early, never says preemie, and really only when talking about her breathing issues (got RSV in her first year, hospitalized, and gets bad colds more easily than the other kids) - because that is a lasting effect of her having been a bit early.

I have a 6 y/o DD, but before I had her I had a micro-preemie. He was born was 23+5 via emergency c-section. I am now 10+5 with this pregnancy and due May 2nd, but will deliver in April sometime.

I went to my nurse appointment last Friday and had lab work done and they called me with the results yesterday. Apparently, I have a UTI and low progesterone. They started me on oral progesterone and Macrobid to go along with the Phenergen that I am already taking.
and to you too, Mama. I'm due mid-April with this Babe and If you feel up to it, the April DDC is pretty great - though I still love posting here with these wonderful mamas who truly understand my worries and range of emotions!
