Re: August 2013!!

Took another test today just so I could post and show how dark the line is. Maybe it's normal for this early? This is five days before my period is due. The one two days prior to this test looked the same. I had a blood test today at my Dr.'s office to test my hcg levels so I'll know by tomorrow (approximately) how many weeks I am.

It looks great! Not sure the HCG levels will determine your weeks though. The range and variance is so large. You may have to get your first u/s to determine that. But I'm betting you ovulated early in the month.

Re: August 2013!!

Ugh. I just looked at a chart...didn't realize the huge variance in levels. My son had an appt today so our family np did the blood draw. She said ultrasound as other option but they dont do them in office so i thought blood draw would be fine. I suppose I should just call my ob and get in there. My ob is in a huge medical facility so I was trying to avoid it for a while but guess that's not going to work!

I'm rambling! Thank for all your input MVP! How have you been feeling? I have no appetite and everything but fruit and bread turns my stomach. Another reason I thought I may be a little farther along. But who knows!

I know what you mean about avoiding the office. I feel like tht too. I am just already tired, and sleeping like a rock. My boobs have already starting growing too. Last night I had a heartburn-y like ball in my throat. I feel like I am in for big nausea if I feel this way and Af isnt due until tomorrow.

I am thinking that you may be a little further along. It sure sounds that way.

Re: August 2013!!

My breasts hurt a little as I was walking down the stairs. My tummy was a teensy bit upset last night for no particular reason and I felt a little indigestion. No biggie, though. I feel like I'm noticing symptoms that I would otherwise be oblivious to if it weren't for the pregnancy. hehe DH and I discussed how it's really easy to attribute every little sign and symptom to the pregnancy. We had a good laugh about it.

I have these urges to tell EVERYONE that I'm pregnant. But most of the time I'm loving our delicious little secret. It's all ours right now.

I know what you mean ardeur. My husband jokingly said "oh, here we go! " when I told him how tired I was today. Though my 13 month old still doesn't sleep through the night so I don't think that's helping!

I am already exhausted! That seems to always hit early, the fatigue.

Re: August 2013!!

Congratulations to all of you joining in here! I was in the August 2012 group, and I now have an almost 4 month old. I got my BFP last November (on the 30th) so it's so exciting for you all to be finding out this month!

Hope you all have happy, healthy pregnancies. Yay for summer babies!
