...and let's face it, muffin top is not NEARLY the same thing as a pregnancy tummy!
I didn't realize you had already lost a pregnancy that far along. This is my first one and I'm so nervous, it must be much more nerve-wracking for you. Do they know at all what went wrong? Because the cause of my husband's male-factor problem was a cystic fibrosis mutation we did genetic screening/counseling before we even started IVF. I just had my first appointment with my regular obgyn today, and they gave me a lot of paperwork and brochures about the other testing, but she said I don't have to decide about the CVS for another couple of weeks. Sounds like we're on the same doctor's schedule, too! My next appointment is for 5/7 - I'm curious to see when yours will be!
My fertility doctor didn't do a lot, either. They at least did a more detailed second ultrasound, and gave me the heart rate and a length measurement. You must be dying to get your results tomorrow.
Eating is always a challenge for me because I have a lot of food allergies, including soy which is a ***** to avoid these days. Seriously, I have seen packages of bacon that had soy listed as an ingredient. Soy. In bacon
. Huh? At least it means I am forced to cook all my meals from scratch, but let me tell you cooking meals from scratch has a very limited appeal when you feel nauseous.
I have always been a yogurt fan, and I'm finding that a great stand-by for something healthy to eat quickly.
It sounds like what I have had is bleeding. It's a gush of very thin, runny bright red blood that quickly tapers off and stops within a few hours. Yes, it is VERY scary. It happened in the shower last night, and this wave of panic hit me when I saw all that bright red on the white shower. I almost cried when I could see the little heart beating today. Forget taking vitamins, I think I'm going to need anti-anxiety meds before this is done.
