Gamergirl/CK - oooh, sorry about the headaches, they don't sound good. Have you been able to take anything for them? Funnily enough, I think I read somewhere that headaches can be a pregnancy symptom in the first trimester and I've woken up with one today, wonder whether that's why you've got them too? Not fun though... Re appointments, as BRMommy2B said, everyone is different. The US clinics see people WAY more than the UK clinics do. I last went in to the clinic for transfer on December 20th, haven't had a beta, any bloodwork or a consult since then, and won't go in until January 21st for my first u/s (when I will be 7wks2days). And if that goes well, I will then be signed over to my local doctor and won't have a scan or appointment again until my normal 12 week scan at the local hospital! So don't worry that you're not seeing your RE enough, you're seeing him far more than I get to!!
BRMommy2B - only two more days until your next u/s! I can't believe you're going to be 7 wks on Thursday... Did you ever get the problem with your ticker sorted out?
julia_78 - thanks for the information about flu shots. I was just asking out of interest, no-one has mentioned it to me yet but I know that in the UK, doctors' surgeries are encouraging pregnant women to get the swine flu shot. I don't think I will feel comfortable doing it though. Woo hoo for good bloodwork, you can finally relax about that progesterone level now! Enjoy Amsterdam, I love that city! Do you get to spend any time being a tourist or is it all work, work, work while you're there? Oh well, you're going to be on holiday soon enough anyway! Ooooh tell me about pregnancy being one 2ww after another - I've worked out that mine is going to be a 2ww to do a HPT to find out whether it worked, followed by a 3ww to get to the first u/s, then a 5ww (yes, I said 5ww!!!) to get to the 'normal' 12 week u/s. How am I going to cope?????
