Yes the nurse told us about the little beveled bit. I can't do them myself so DH has been doing them for me. I found some good little spots where it doesn't hurt much and barely leaves a mark. I'll keep my eye on it and make sure it doesn't get any bigger.
Emzy & Poobear - so glad things are going so well for you both. I hope the next few weeks don't prove too anxious.
PA80 - yay on the ok to TTC. Lots of babydust to you.
Kristibel - I took Clexane till week 12 and switched to Cartia after that. I had one specialist saying to take it and another saying to skip it. My OB's advice was that there isn't a whole lot of evidence that aspirin would make a huge difference, but on the chance it could make a difference there was a lot of evidence that aspirin is perfectly safe for mum and bub during pregnancy, so on balance you may as well take it.
Sammy - good luck with injections. I found a quick stab myself to be the best way to go and applying 10 min of pressure afterwards minimised bruising.
Hello to everyone else!
AFM - I'm now sporting a bruise-free little bump. Can't wait to find out the sex 3 weeks from tomorrow! (Although we're seeing the OB on Friday and there's a slim chance he'll be able to tell on his sono machine.)
Windupbird - Goodluck hopefully you'll see the sex on Friday!
Kristabel - my ob took me off clexane and asprin when I had a small bleed at 9 weeks till 12 weeks, and I'm back on both now. She said it can make the bleed worse. Hope all is going well.
I wasn't aware of having the slanted bit of the needle going downways. Does that mean you are looking at the slanted bit?
AFM- Just heard from my ob and she said my TSH level is a bit high, so now I've got to go on thyroxine as well. I can't believe how many things are wrong with my body! Diabetes, Thyroid, Protein S Deficiency, bladder dysfunction arghhh! Body, give me and peanut a fricken break PLEASE!!!!
