So happy to have you over here!! I know that betas are no guarantee, but with betas like yours...very similar to mine....I wouldn’t be surprised if you have 2 (or 3
) baking in there! Can’t wait for your u/s!!
Best of luck!! Looks like everything is taken care of...wishing you a smooth delivery! You sound so amazingly calm.
Gorgeous photos!! Thanks for sharing...you two look radiant at the shower.
You are still in my thoughts and prayers. As Rio said, you are such an amazingly strong woman.
Sorry about the GD...and the bleeding. When do you go next for u/s? I’m with Rio, I’d schedule one to reassure yourself. My OB has been great in that department. I have had 6 u/s in the past 2 1/2 weeks..not counting the one at the ER...no exaggeration.
Thanks for checking in and sharing!! Congratulations!! Glad to hear that all is going well with your little one.
I saw that video a couple weeks ago and it so cracked me up!
And Lyd, I agree with your puzzlement as well regarding IVF and ectopic. My first cycle I had a DOUBLE ectopic. One embryo was implanted in my tube and the other on my ovary. It made no sense to me how they could’ve gotten up there and no one has been able to give me a reason other than, “it sometimes happens”. I was almost 8 weeks before it was diagnosed. Being almost 9 weeks now that seems crazy to me since I have been seeing my raspberries in my uterus for over 2 weeks now.
Glad that all seems to be going well with you and your little girl!! 25 weeks...wowee...probably seems that time is going slowly for you, but for me your time is speeding by!
Hope that you are getting relief from the HG. You poor thing!!
That weight loss is not good...I have lost about 5 lbs, but over the past month. In one week seems like something they should be monitoring and helping you with. My NT scan is a week after yours...best of luck!! Praying that all will be well.
Glad that all turned out well with your “sleepy” baby during NT. Sounds very adorable! Less than 2 weeks until you get to see your OB doctor. Hope you get another peek!
Have they diagnosed your bleeding as related to a SCH? Or is it unknown causes? When I went to the hospital on Thursday they used that same “threatened abortion” diagnosis with me. Not exactly very reassuring, is it? Take it easy, drink lots of fluids, and go to doctor whenever you need to. I was feeling like I was being a nuisance, but my OB totally understands how much we have gone through for this pregnancy. Hope that you have as great an OB.
AFM: Sorry to be amiss for a few days. I have been struggling with my SCH and bleeding episodes which has had my spirits down. I went back to work on Thursday and had to leave before noon because the bleeding was so heavy. I was in bed at noon and since the bleeding failed to stop ( a heavy pad every 30-45 min) the nurse told us to go to ER at about 5pm. Long night there...bumbling doctors who knew nothing about a hematoma...but we finally got my blood drawn and u/s to confirm the raspberries are ok. My hemaglobin dropped from 12 (at OB office the day before) to 9 at the hospital. I guess I need to be taking some iron supplements? He said that wasn't too low. Anyway, bleeding finally slowed down over a few days, although still red, and I went to see OB this morning. He is concerned because the SCH has grown. Both raspberries are growning on target with good healthy HB’s, but there is a risk the SCH could cause a miscarriage regardless. So--it is bedrest for me. For 4 weeks. Sigh. I am going to go insane. My boss (is in Mexico at the moment) will have a fit when she gets back. Oh, well. I gotta do what I gotta do to keep my raspberries safe. Don't like to be a downer. I am grateful to be where I am, just wish it wasn't so stressful. NT scan in 2 1/2 weeks and then next OB visit the following week--assuming all goes well.
