I'm joining this group even tho it may be too early.

Two IUI inseminations (with clomid) done 16 and 17 days ago. BFP HPTs. First Beta at 11DPIUI was 41, then 14DPIUI was 325. Just did my third beta. fingers crossed.

My due date would be Jan 30.

COngrats to all of us  and I hope our pregnancies are healthy and that our babies come out healthy and happy

So the tech doing my ultrasound scared the crap out of me. First she asked if I had a bleed (which I did) and when I asked if everything was okay and she said sometimes it's just early to see things. I wanted to cry I thought blighted ovum for sure. Then she asked when I did my egg retrieval. (Which was last August) Then she asked if I was okay doing a vaginal ultrasound and I said of course. So I went to empty my bladder and nearly balled my eyes out in the bathroom. When I came back I told her my heart was beating a million miles a minute. She was why?? I said you're scaring me, is there a baby in there? She was like of course there is! I didn't say a word after that. She then called in my DH and we were able to see pics of our little blob! :) I'm measuring 8 weeks and had a strong heartbeat of 165!! We've officially been referred to an OB at Mt. Sinai Hospital. Next test is called IPS. So relieved to hear all good things today!! I'm going to try to attach a pic.

(Sorry if any of your are reading this twice from being in the April FET group)

Thank you ! My birthday is in December and I was kinda trying to avoid a December due date but apparently I was destined to be, lol. Congrats on your good news too!!! I now need to get referred to an OB cause the one that referred my to RFC - Calgary doesn't do pregnancy (I found odd)

Hoping everyone on this board has a healthy pregnancy.  Congrats KFNorth on the twins!

 

I've definitely been feeling some nausea but I find that eating a bunch of small meals a day + snacks keeps it at bay.  And I feel like I'm already showing a little bit!  I start a new job next Thursday, so it will be interesting to see how long I can keep this under wraps.


Me: 36, DH: 38, TTC since 2013

Dx: PCOS and mild Endo

5 cycles of timed intercourse on Clomid/Femara - 4 BFNs, 1 ectopic January 2015 (methotrexate)

3 IUIs w. injectables, 2 BFNs, 1 BFP m/c @ 7weeks July 2015

April - IVF #1: retrieved 8, fertilized 7, 3 made it to day 5

Transferred one fresh blast April 15, BFP!

Ultrasound #1 May 17th - it's identical twins!

Congrats on the twin KFnorth

Laura K! So exciting...

I just got my third Beta #s at 889. Gyne say sit looks good and I have an ultrasound next Thursday. He says he will be able to tell how many sacs and how it all looks (can you do that so early in the pregnancy - im only about 4 weeks!, 2 weeks from "conception"!)

I'm pretty stressed out about the entire thing : I never thought i would ever get pregnant.

Cassandra- I have been feeling the same way. Trying to stay positive and excited but it doesn't feel real so it's hard when it's so early. Worried something bad might happen cause I have been waiting for this for so long! My first u/s is next week hoping that'll make me feel better!
Keep thinking positive! I'm going to try to keep myself busy and doing something positive everyday to help!

Yellowknife - I am until 10 weeks. My clinic normally doesn't keep prescribing it after a positive beta but I asked if I could remain on it, more for peace of mind. They said that was find but that it wouldn't make s difference. Seeing as my meds are all covered (and even if they aren't) I asked.

I'm going to ask if I can stop when I go for my 9 week appointment. Obviously I'll keep doing it if he feels its best but if I can stop then I am ok with that too. I give the shots in my thighs and between the bruises and the knots in the muscle I am running out of room.

Were you guys put on it regardless of your progesterone levels?

I'm freaking out cos I'm not on them and worried my doc will say i don't have to cos my levels are ok...

 

Any of you guys getting any symptoms? I'm only 4w at this point and feel nothing major at all (a bit of cramping and a lot of insomnia, but thats about it)

 

when did you guys start feeling your symptoms...?I think I may be the "freshest" one here and can gain from all your wisdom (due date jan 30 2017....omg just typing that is weird!)

Hi ladies i need help with process of finding an obgyn.
My husband and I will be moving to the States in few months and we are not really familiar with the health care system there.

This is also my first pregnancy so not sure how everything works

Just wondering do we need to first find a family doctor before we can get a referral to our obgyn ? ( like in Canada) Or can you just go straight to the obgyn you have in mind?

Any help or info would be appreciated. Thanks!

 

Hey girl, nice to see you here in this post again!! Glad to know that heartbeat has been measured for you already. That is sooner than i thought. So exciting!!!!

 

 I am going in 2 weeks and got quite nervous about it.

Were you guys put on it regardless of your progesterone levels?

I'm freaking out cos I'm not on them and worried my doc will say i don't have to cos my levels are ok...

 

Any of you guys getting any symptoms? I'm only 4w at this point and feel nothing major at all (a bit of cramping and a lot of insomnia, but thats about it)

 

when did you guys start feeling your symptoms...?I think I may be the "freshest" one here and can gain from all your wisdom (due date jan 30 2017....omg just typing that is weird!)

I feel cramping too, and sort of waking up a few times during the night (mostly because of the weather though). I feel nothing else.

 

Did they check your progesterone level? I think most doctors will do them anyway. Mine is really high after the meds. Not sure how much is needed though.

Yay you made it here too! Yeah the ultrasound definitely put my mind so much more at peace. But the 2 week wait definitely felt like a torture to me worse than waiting for beta i think. A day felt like a week. I ended up having an earlier u/s due to my spotting but turned out it was no biggie. Everything looks fine as of now.

So glad that we will be getting an u/s every week. That was unexpected. so am going back june 3rd for my 7th week u/s . What date is yours? Can't wait to hear your update.Any pregnancy symptoms yet?

So I went to see my OB/GYN and told him about putting me on Prometrium. He told me that unless i did IVF (i did IUI), there aren't a lot of studies showing that it benefits the pregnancy. But he went ahead and put me on, as we both agreed i would have nothing to lose.

So as of now, and for the next 4 weeks (so until 9 weeks) i am on 200mg of prometrium once a day.

 

I feel better about it.

 

I'm not sleeping at all, and I dont know if its the anxiety and worry about being pregnant or what, but its horrible! I started taking Melatonin (last night) as it seems like the only sleep aid that is ok for me to use. I'm also getting these werd jolts in my left arm and leg, almost what i'd think restless leg/arm syndome would be.

 

Any of you guys having sleeping issues? and what are you doing about it?

 

Am I the only one worrying about this all the time?

 

Am I gonna be THAT mom???
