Hello heartburn! I woke up three times (at least) last night with a pain in my chest. Still there this morning on and off. Definitely heartburn, and gets worse when I bend over. I guess curried chickpeas were a BAD idea last night. Nausea comes and goes, but wow how bout them hormones??? I burst into tears 3 times yesterday for no apparent reason. DH is wonderful though, he just gives me a hug and tells me I can cry whenever I want to. I still felt like a bit of a nut, but I was literally overpowered by the need to cry.

Lol anyone else having weird experiences? Three cheers for T1!
Welcome all the recent preggers! Congratulations!

Hey everyone! Glad to read all of the updates from you all! My computer was giving me problems so I couldn't get on for a while! Well nausea has officially began...although it's not terible in the a.m. but seems to come and go throughout the day. A trip to costco yesterday almost proved to be disasterous, mixing crowds of people with nausea...blah! My girlfriend bought me a book and it said to try peppermint tea. It did work for me last night.

I don't have too much further to go till my ultrasound, I am anxious for that little extra piece of mind. Have a wonderful weekend ladies!

Girls try to use one extra pillow -it's much better for nausea and other sleeping problems during the pregnancy.

Good luck Lexi.

So not good news this afternoon. the nurse just called with my beta and it is 328. I was 167 on Monday so it has taken me 6 days to double. I started to freak out and the nurse said to stay positive but how can I??? I go again on Thursday for another beta. This rollercoater is awful.

Lexi....I hope your next beta continues to rise. My u/s is on the 2nd too at 2pm maybe we'll cross paths.

Quite a few AB ladies here....yeah!

Dr Tankel is my OB. He works at the Hys and delivers at the Alex. He's a good doctor but the wait times are extreme. I ALWAYS call in advance of my appointment to ask when I should really come. That way I only have to wait a couple hours versus 5 or 6 or 7.

Hello Edmonton girls! Wow! You're all coming out of the woodworks hey? So there's myself, Valasia, Lexi, Krista, hoping4_1 and who else? I wonder if I met any of you while sitting in the waiting room. I was in last Wednesday from 1:15-4pm...the wait was bad. Were any of you there? It's weird not going back to RAH after these past 5 years. I know I will find myself back there at some point, hopefully not for another year or so though. One at a time!

Lexi- I am going to see Dr. Corbett as far as I know. I had Dr. Tankel who was wonderful but I have not seen him for over 5 years and his wait times are crazy! DH and I decided to switch to a Dr. at the Grey Nuns which is way closer for us. I heard he is great. The thing is you don't know who will deliver your babe anyways. All the best on the next steps! Lexi hang in there. You never know. Praying for you and your little one. Stick baby stick!

AFM, I am feeling pretty good. I only get nauseous when I am hungry so I try to snack on something as soon as I feel hungry. My only worry is that I will gain too much. I'm already a big girl at 180lbs and hope to look pregnant and not just fat. I've heard that happens. Anyone else in the same boat? I want to be all belly and not making people wonder. I am very tired and can easily take a 2 hour nap everyday. My breast are still tender but not as bad as previous or maybe I am just getting used to it. Who knows? I have also been craving anything pickled but especially beets and dill pickles. I am loving oranges and apples with cheese. I usually LOVE curry but the smell makes me want to vomit. Oh and anything lemon tastes like Pledge to me. Gross!

This is so fun to share. We should make a due date list...maybe I'll get to it tonight.

Laura....I think a friend of mine might see Dr Corbett. My preg is going to be rather high risk so I am probably best to stick with DR Tankel. I work downtown so getting to appointments is not a big deal. I call the office and leave when I am somewhere close to getting in! I'll be seeing the peri's at the Alex too.

I am around the same weight. I def had a baby belly with my previous pregs. Right now I look bloated and fat but that will change. With my first I gained only 20lbs and with my second I hadn't gained at all by 21 weeks when he was born. So I was pretty much all baby out front.

I just said to dh this morning that this baby is kicking my but. I was SO tired and that was after a pretty good sleep. BBS are killing me. Nausea not so bad kind of the same it gets a little worse when my tummy is empty.

As long as this preg goes well I won't be going back to the clinic. This baby will be our last. As much as I like Dr M I will be glad to be done with the whole ttc thing.

Anyone holding any extra meds? I have an un-open Gonal F pen. When I had my first I donated right after seeing the hb at 7 weeks. With the second I didn't have left overs. This time I am not sure what to do. Thinking I might just keep it for a while (till 20 weeks) then donate it!

Hey ladies... wow so many Alberta girls!

My u/s is tomorrow and I'm pretty nervous...My nauseau comes and goes and like a few of you have mentioned it's worse when the belly is empty. I am finding it hard to find things I want to eat. I get so hungry that you would think i could just grab anything but nope, as soon as I think about eating anything "snacky" it makes me feel really nauseous. Oranges, apples and pineapple seem to be my go to lately, also cereal and toast are okay. Not much of a well rounded diet.

I'm really hoping my u/s goes well tomorrow. Just so scared! I still feel so lucky to have gotten preggers our first IVF try that i think it still hasn't really settled in yet.
Yesterday my sister in-law annouced that they to are expecting as well. She is due October 9th and we are the 8th. They are so fertile basically just say they are going to try and boom, preggers. I guess with her being so close to me in our dates I'm just so nervous of something going wrong with us and having to see her go through pregnancy... not trying to be a downer I'm just so nervous for tomorrow.

I will be sure to post my results tomorrow.

Have a good night ladies.

Welcome to the group pepper. Gosh we do have a large group going eh! It's great but I think I need a list to keep it all straight. I've started one below but please alter if I've missed you or made an error.

AFM I'm also getting really nervous for my u/s on wednesday - just finding it hard to keep positive and not fearful that all of the joy from the last few weeks won't come crashing down. Still super nauseous as well but it seems to be better when i get a good nights sleep. wish I could control that!

Good luck tomorrow Niff!!

BTW - is anyone else finding themselves a weeping blubbering idiot at the drop of a hat? My friend send me this video of a flashmob with a sentimental backstory (see notes) and I was just bawling watching it. Also anything even mildly sad or sentimental on TV has me tearing up and that's totally not like me. I haven't done it in public ... yet!

Hi ladies - good luck Lexi!

I was wondering if this thread was kind of gearing towards Alberta women? I'm from beautiful B.C.

Hoping: Yup - I cry at least 3 times every time I watch American Idol! Pretty sad!

U/S on March 3rd, so we'll see. Cautiously optimistic!
