Congratulations on your BFPs and I hope we all have uneventful pregnancies ahead of us.
A little about me, I am 41, DP is 42, DS is 20 months and we have been TTC#2 for 12 months which included a missed m/c at 11.5 weeks, and a chem pregnancy the month before this one. Our EDD is 4 Dec (I think) but will get a scan when we can to see if that is right.
Pssst - We are in the same boat, not fussed on gender, just hoping for a successful pregnancy. As for VBAC, I am going the other way. I had a natural birth first time around and (for me) it was horrendous experience. It put DS in a lot of distress so I will be requesting CS and given I will be close to 42 when I deliver, I am sure I will get one.
Andrea - I am feeling what you are saying. I am not as excited as I would like be, as it feels like the m/c was not that distant a memory. I hope the blood spotting is an isolated event. The HPT sounds perfect tho so it sounds like its going well. Hang in there chicka.
Gisses - I hope DD is giving you a little bit of a break and sleeping through the night. I hear you re tiredness, but I imagine bub waking during the night doesn't help. Thankfully DS has been behaving in that regard, tho I think he is hitting the terrible 2s early (and I dont like it). Also he is very active so I am wondering how I am going to keep him from whacking me in the stomach.
Hi Miss Marti - I hope your scan goes well and that you are able to tell everyone your news. It sounds like you have had a bit of a stressful time with the spotting but the upper cuts do sound very promising for a healthy bubba. Fingers crossed for a wonderful result.
Mumma-to-A - 16 weeks - WOW that seems to have gone quickly tho I expect that is easy for me to say. May not have gone as quickly for you. I know what you mean about the DIGs. I started in one last time before the mc but it was just too many people. Good luck with your 20 week scan.
Hi Aurora - yeah I dont know what to do about blood tests. I have an appt with my OB 2 weeks yesterday and he gave me blood tests to check on fertility when I saw him last month assuming I wasn't pregnant. Know that I am, I think I will just wait to see him and do what he asks me then.
Carol - hope the
eases off soon. I know I was awfully sick with DS for about 7 months so I am hoping I am not like that this time, but at least it was a successful outcome so I will take what is dished out.
AFM - seeing my chinese fertility lady regularly for acupuncture appointments but they are a bit of a chunk out of my day. Also taking the herbs which are yuk, but seem to be doing the job so wont be stopping until at least the 3 month mark.
Also seeing my OB in 2 weeks but I suspect it will be too early to see much, but he wanted to see me early given the last missed mc.
Symptoms, slight nausea, especially if I am working out, tho only doing light workouts. Mild cramping on and off which is annoying but comforting at the same time. Tiredness during the day and sleeplessness at night which my acupuncture lady says is due to elevated progesterone so she gave me a couple of needles today to help with that.
I hope you all have a great weekend
