Re: Weekly Chat: 2/6- 2/12

Alice - I'm glad the spotting has stopped. I hope you get the answers your looking for with the Doc.

Tara - It seems the IV fluids helped with your morning sickness/hyperemesis. I hope it doesn't continue for very long. I've been blessed with easy pregnancies and couldn't imagine feeling constantly sick.

So we broke down and told my dad about expecting baby #4 (since he watches my kids the weekends I work) and I didn't get the reaction I expected. I spent the night crying myself to sleep. I'm not looking forward to telling anyone else so I think we'll just wait until they ask. I think dh and I figured our schedules out so no one has to watch them expect for every 3rd Saturday for like 6 hours or so. We plan to hire a babysitter so family can't say anything. So the quest starts for someone who is competent/capable to watch 4 kids ages 5 and under. Luckily we have almost a year to figure it out and try some out!

FX I feel ok today, a little nasueas but not feeling the need to vomit. Praying it stays that way. I can handle nasuea, its the vommiting that gets me. I hope eveyrone had a great weekend.
I'm really glad you are feeling better. There are few things in this world I hate more than being nauseous. I'm anxious to hear what your Dr. says.

Alice: I agree.. we are a nervous bunch.

I can't wait for belly pics and fluffy chat and all those wonderful things. I can't WAIT for feeling those flutters and bumps.

Today I have to clean. my. house. It is not good. At all. If I do a good job I might start cruising the fluff section of the board, or just work on finishing up these longies
Yes! I have a friend who is due Sep 1st and just posted a pic to her FB of her cute little baby bump. Gah! She looks sooo stinking adorable!! I can't wait until that is us! Right now I just have an unattractive bloat going on. Lol!
IMO, we can start the fluffy chat at anytime. I bought two pairs of longies off spots last week

I'm a little concerned this morning girls. I'm 6 weeks (28dpo) and my test this morning was nowhere near as dark as my tests from 20 & 22dpo. So now I'm worried that this will be another m/c. Hopefully I hear from the hospital soon with a date for my u/s.
I think at this point it's not as accurate. In the beginning generally HCGs doubles really quickly, but as the numbers climb higher it slows and eventually declines a bit (at least I'm fairly certain) My tests have looked almost the exact same for days now. PLUS, the tests only have so much dye in them. ((hugs))

Goosebella, I am glad you are feeling better. Hope all is well with your bean or beans do twins run in your family?

Kymdenise, I am so with you!! I can't wait for the flutters and thuds I have already been peaking in at the fluff I bought some newbie GN yarn too.

Ambie719, is it possible that you just got a sucky test? Maybe it just didn't have as much dye content or your urine was more diluted than usual

AFM, Sorry to use mostly screen names. I'm sure i will figure out who everyone is eventually

I was really stressing over the darkness of my tests. My FRER where obvious positives but not getting any darker. My wandfo where all super light and not getting any darker. This morning, my FRER looks like the last 2 but my Wandfo is way darker I feel more comfortable now. I am so happy to have some cramping. I know that sounds silly but i cramped with my first 3 healthy pregnancies so i was concerned that i wasn't so much this time. AF is due today or tomorrow so I will be super happy come Wednesday if she is still MIA.
The more experience I have with FRERs the less I like them. I know everyone just LOVES them... but the pink handled Wondfos are so sooo much better it's not even funny!

((Hugs)) So sorry about your dad. We got similar reactions when we told family we were pregnant with my first angel baby. And I still get "the population" talk from my G-pa all the time. Sigh. I find it hilarious coming from a raging Republican who doesn't believe in eating organic and does only the very very bare minimum of recycling... Lol! OKay, I'm off on a tangent now...In the end when your baby is here things will be different. Sometimes parents worry for us- but who can help falling in love with a squishy newbie?

AFM, not much is going on. My boobs hurt like hell, which is a new symptom for me. Still dealing with that stupid yeast infection Though, it's barely noticeable at this point. Bloated, tired, and while I'm not nauseous at this point, my stomach is really sensitive to smells. I wish my MS would just kick in full effect so I could quit worrying about this bean.

Has anyone heard from apo_katie?? She was having some spotting too and I'm just hoping things are okay for her....

Re: Weekly Chat: 2/6- 2/12

Alice and Tara, I'm glad you're feeling better. I've been thinking of you girls.

Amber, sorry you're freaking out. I think you're OK. The color of the line depends on so many factors; dye, urine dilution. Can you go in for some bloodwork and see what your betas are doing before your ultrasound?

Corey - sorry you got such a lukewarm reaction. We told my MIL and mom and they were excited but I told one of my best friends last night and she didn't seem thrilled. She's got some personal things going on so I'm just blaming it on that. For now.

Sheena, sore boobs are no fun!! I don't have them at all this time. So weird. I keep pushing on 'em to see if there's anything and NOPE. I am just tired and queasy - that's all for now I guess!

Kim, I already bought some fluff to add to my stash. I can't bring myself to buy maternity clothes though which is weird. Normally I have a shopping problem...

I have an ultrasound on Wednesday. I am supposed to have another appointment with the doc I saw last week on Thursday but BIG SURPRISE I am canceling that one. She's wack.

Re: Weekly Chat: 2/6- 2/12

So I'm being a total brat today. My DH had shoulder surgery on Friday and I am just so sick of hearing him moan. I know that I am in the wrong. I don't like to see him in pain. His pain meds make him so sick to his stomach (like major) that he's going without them and just using tylenol. I'm worried about him feeling so horrible, especially when I know there's no need for him to. He needs to be drugged up. His dr. is supposed to call today and when they do, I'm going to ask that they give him something different. So between worrying about him, and worrying about this pregnancy, and waiting on him, and taking care of the kids, I'm just a hormonal wreck. I know I'm being a total brat about it. I just don't know what to do. I'm not being a brat TO him.....or the kids......its just in my head. I'm fighting with myself, if that makes sense.

Re: Weekly Chat: 2/6- 2/12

So, I had a little spotting yesterday and I have none! I tested again yesterday (for mine and my husband's peace of mind) and came back with a blaring positive at 3pm! And the sore boobs, super sensitive sense of smell and the little bit of morning sickness is good news. I can't wait for all of us to get past the 13 week hump! Sticky bean dust to all!

Re: Weekly Chat: 2/6- 2/12

Oh, and Alice, I read in the ATTS thread that some of the women were saying betas were basically over rated some times. I didn't want to say that and be all negative, but I agree. With the two I lost, my betas looked great....were doubling nicely. With my 2nd loss, the nurse said, "don't worry about losing this one, your betas are fantastic." Well, then I lost it. All that to say, they can look totally great and not mean a thing. After I lost the 1st one, my betas even continued to rise. So, I don't base any hope in them anymore and will not have them done this time unless the midwife wants them and even then, I'll just do it for her but not pay much attention to them.

Re: Weekly Chat: 2/6- 2/12

Good to know Jenny. I guess it's just one more thing to worry about. I never imagined pregnancy was going to be so nerve-wracking :/ I thought the hard things about pregnancy would be feeling sick and being uncomfortable. Which I'm sure happens too but I wasn't expecting how fearful it has made me. I can't even pee without my blood pressure shooting through the roof. Hhahha. Dh is going to stage an intervention if I don't get it together. Anyway, I hope your husband feels better soon and stops moaning!!!


And apo_katie... glad to hear your spotting stopped too!

And random thought... so far our group is half team green/ half finding out. That kind of surprises me... I thought team green was kinda unusual. And it is in real life... but apparently not here!

Thanks again for all the thoughts and prayers! I think I might be okay but I still remain very cautious.


Let me know if you anyone has any appointment info up here. I should be seeing the ob later this week but I'm not sure exact day yet. I hadn't planned to go in but this little spotting episode threw a wrench in my stay away from the doc as long as possible plans..

Upcoming Appointments

2/8 Dutchlish/ Maaike- u/s
2/8 Goosebella/ Tara
2/28 kymdenise/ Kim
I'm Elise... I don't know when the names got confused but I just thought I'd clear that up.

Glad to see so many Mamas with symptons As of now we have no newborn fluff... not that I haven't been looking but this will be our first time doing cloth on a newborn so we have nothing on hand from before. I'm doing ok so far today as long as I don't move too much and eat as soon as a feel nasuaes. The not moving thing is hard with 2 kids under 2 in the house but I've stationed myself on the couch (a central location) and only move for diaper changes and getting food for them and myself. For the most part they are doing pretty good. Hoping we get good news from the appointment. A little worried but trying not to focus on it. Heyperemesis would suck but I'd be ok with it, I'd also be ok with a multiples pregnancy as I was secretly hoping for twins. Twins don't run in my family but they do run in my husbands family and he is the generation for it. I don't know how that works though. Well, back to the couch I go... don't want to push my luck.
