Took her to the ped who thought it was scarlet fever, but the rapid strep came back negative. She usually gets strep like 3x/winter and the rapid always comes back positive for her. Called my OB and had to stop in for b/w to see if I have the parvo antibodies or not. Hoping I do so that little Miss is protected and I don't have to worry these last few weeks. I have my 28w appt on Monday, so I should have the results by then I'd think.
Oh shoot. you've all ready got the antibodies - although if you do test positive, there's no way of knowing when you got it from the test, just that you have, kwim?
I came in contact with a kid with fifth's when I was pregnant with DS2. Test came back positive, so nothing we could do other than wait it out. I never came down with any symptoms, so we assume that I had had it when I was younger (which is very common).

No troubles after a salad is a good sign that you're on the mend. Salad is probably a good thing to be munching on, too - lots of cucumber, if you like it, and lots of water and gatorade (or the like). Gotta get hydrated again.

Re: Pregnancy After Loss (December)

I'm so worried for a mama in the april group. She had an u/s this morning, the tech didn't give her anything specific but said that she should see her Dr right away and the radiologist would call her Dr and the Dr would call her within a day or 2 to set up follow up stuff.
I'm for her and her baby girl.
And I really wish everyone in the group would stop saying "since they're not doing anything urgent, it must be nothing big." Because... well... they're wrong.

I'll be thinking of this mama and hoping for an overall good outcome.

Oh my gosh, I would go crazy with worry if they didn't give me ANY specifics like that... that poor mama... I'll keep her in my prayers!

Really, the tech did more than the techs up here are supposed to - she said something. The tech that did Elli's first u/s said nothing. They sent me away with a few photos and a lovely goodbye, not a word about anything being wrong. I hate that.
The tech where we went this time said she never sends anyone home without them knowing how things are - she can't actually diagnose anything, but she will tell parents if the baby is healthy or if there are problems with an area, and will tell them if the baby has passed away.

Re: Pregnancy After Loss (December)

Ok ladies I don't post here much, but can I get some reassurance?

I'm only 8 weeks today, and had felt SUPER nauseous all day long every day for about 2 weeks from 5-7 weeks. It started to let up around 7 and now at 8 I feel almost completely fine. From 7 weeks through yesterday I had crazy all the time heartburn that was reassuring since the nausea had died down a lot. Now, nothing today. I don't feel nearly as tired as I did yesterday, either. I feel some...back pain? I hesitate to call it cramps since it's just in my lower back, not around in front. UGH. With my miscarriage, I had no spotting, no cramping, no nothing. The baby just died. I waited two weeks to miscarry naturally and finally had to take meds. So I don't feel at all comforted by the fact that I"m not spotting or cramping. Help? Why in the WORLD would I start feeling so much better already????

Aww, Jena, I hope and pray that everything is just fine. With this pregnancy, no joke at around 8 1/2 weeks to 9 weeks is when I first noticed the nausea was letting up for me. I was terrible dizzy and nauseous from week 6 to 8 1/2 then barely anything.. I think sometimes it's common to begin feeling better after NOT feeling good and common for the symptoms to come and go also. I will keep you in my prayers!!!

Re: Pregnancy After Loss (December)

Thanks, Carly. It means a lot! I'm in the middle of switching from a crappy OB practice to a CNM in a different city, so I can't even call and harass anyone to see if they can do something to reassure me. I'm thinking of asking for some hcg draws to make sure it's still rising since I"m pretty sure the CNM won't want to do extra ultrasounds...

I kinda thought the same thing... aren't most problems detected at the anatomy scan either "wait and see" or "here's a heads up"? I would imagine very few would be urgent? I think more than anything they were just trying to say something reassuring until she found out. So glad it turned out to be nothing!

Elena, how are you doing? Hiccup giving some reassuring kicks I hope?

Can your provider sneak you in for an u/s or heart rate check? My friend's OB knew she had a missed miscarriage six months prior to her current pregnancy so when she had a similar situation he brought her in for a quick check. Baby was great and a week later morning sickness was full force again.

I had a missed miscarriage, too, and I know how terrifying a lack of symptoms can be. mama!

Eta: just read that you are in between providers so no u/s. My RE would not do betas after 7 weeks. She said its not a good indication that things are growing right. But! If you think it would give you some temporary reassurance I would still ask.
