Sounding good Stace! Yay :)

oh sorry kbmummy must have missed you, glad to know I'm not the only first timer in the group! your numbers sounds good too!
Try and stay calm and positive, I am researching a lot but also realising the chances of it all being okay are actually a lot higher than it not being okay so trying to focus on that!
Also super excited, trying to not tell people is hard!! and time is already dragging.. thank god I get a scan at 7 weeks, I can't imagine being one of these people who don't have a dating scan and just go til 12 weeks before getting a scan!

I’m a first time mum too!!

I made an appointment with the obstetrician today and it’s not for another 4 weeks as he sees people when they’re 8-10 weeks. It seems like ages away!!

Hope everything goes well for you Ancla&Owl.

Welcome kbmummy! Such an exciting time for you!

Anika&owl bleeding in the first trimester is very normal. My friend had it not too long ago and nothing came of it. Fingers crossed all is good.

Scan went well! Managed to see everything without an internal which was good. All in the right place. Appro 5.5 weeks which is less then I thought but he is happy. Had more bloods today, will repeat on Friday to check levels are rising and then another app next Tuesday to check for a heartbeat!

Hi ladies, thank you.
Bloods came back not looking good, midwife wouldn't tell me too much just that the OB wants to see me tomorrow. I was in a bit of shock so not sure what came back really low but pretty sure she didn't say HCG. Appointment is in the afternoon, the day is going to drag :(

Hi all, great to see the group growing. I've been quiet as been flat tack. All tracking well here so far, 7wk dating scan next Tuesday. Bloods went well and around 6 weeks today I think. Lots of symptoms and this afternoon feeling so unwell. Really worried a lot this time around though but guess that's normal.

Hi Hope you don't mind me Joining, I got my BFP Monday :-) I thought we had missed our window for Jan so I didn't really expect it.  It wasn't until this weekend when I kept crying over silly things, my husband looked at me crying and ask what was wrong. I said I don't know whats wrong with me and instantly had a flash back to being pregnant with my daughter and crying over every little thing lol.  After that I decided to take a test and to my shock and excitement it was positive.

I just saw the doc tonight and have bloods done in morning and a dating scan in 2wks.  the Doctor thinks I'm 5wks 5days but I think it be more likely to be 4wk 5days.  Guess i will find out at the scan.

Im nervous even though this is my third child (first with my husband) Im a older mum so my other two children are 16 and 14yrs old.  Its been a long time since I've done this, and reading about all the issues with older mums is a little nerve racking but I'm believe and praying for the best :-)  

Sorry for the long intro, as were not telling people yet its nice to be able to voice this stuff.

Ok this might seem like strange question,  my first two were so long ago and just went pubic with half gp half clinic.  Was wondering this time round going private and if I should get a OB but I really don't know much about what they do lol,  like do you only need one if complication or do you just chose to use one instead of Gp etc.  Very random sorry thoughts that flying about my head lol

I ended up with OB last time as I wanted continuity in care and at delivery. Plus wanted a private room in hospital and would be guaranteed that. You can choose which OB you want,  it just depends on their availability, so the earlier you choose the more likely you get the one you want. I'm going back to the same OB as my experience privately was excellent and figure being a lot older this time around it may all be more complex. It's a personal choice really and it costs a lot more privately so you've just got to choose what's right for you and your family!

Thanks for that,  Im feeling the same way about wanting the consistent care.  Didn't have the greatest experience with the others.  hmm now how to figure out what OB lol.

I was under an ob last time and will be with the same this time. I work in a private hospital so for me the decision was easy. I like the idea of regular checkups and I wanted to be in a private hospital. It also depends on your local public hospital if there good or not. Also if you are covered for pregnancy in your private health insurance and whether you want to spend the money on an ob as they are expensive.

Hi guys,

I’m bursting to tell everyone but only my husband actually knows so far!  I was only just due for my period but had these odd symptoms - getting really hot at night mostly. I had a urine test in the cupboard so thought why not and it was positive! I saw the gp a few hours later and the HCg test should be back tomorrow to confirm. The gp felt confident the urine test was reliable so fingers crossed!!

I’ve got an 8 and 5 yr old and have never used contraception since having the 5 yr old. A few stop start attempts at trying to conceive but I was always uncertain about a third. Then I think we had about 18 months where at the time of ovulation one person in the house would get sick, be away, be tired. At the start of January I had thought right, it’s the last year of trying because 40 is very close and the age gap too big.

I’m so thrilled at the thought of a baby. I remember my kids as babies and it’s just so special. I wish you all a very boring 9 months filled with the anticipation of a precious baby to join your families.

That’s so soppy, I must be pregnant!

I'm so sorry to hear MrsP. Sending you lots of love.

Thank you for all the support ladies, got my results and my progesterone is low and my HCG is doubling every 72 instead of 48 hours. Based on my history he's concerned it could be ectopic, so he's sending me off for a scan at a specific scanning place on Tuesday when I'll be 6w2d. He's put me on progesterone pessories for in the meantime to help increase my progesterone.

Im really sorry to hear that MrsP

#97 stace_wa

Posted 07 February 2018 - 08:30 PM

Mixed news there then Ancla&Owl. Hopefully everything looks fine on Tuesday and your hcg continues to rise. Even up to 72 hours, particularly at this stage isn't terrible, not great, but not terrible. Hopefully the progesterone pessaries do the trick. Good luck and thinking of you.
