Giggle I can see the photo but small on my phone. Very cute
Thanks Mummylip, I already knew pretty much what was wrong but having it written down in front of me is a bit different. Im still trying to understand how he came to have such serious health problems. Josh didnt have any genetic abnormalities. Im actually feeling relieved that it didnt contain something that the pathologist neglected to tell me that would impact this pregnancy. Hopefully this baby will be ok
MummyLip - Great levels!!! Congratulations!! I knew they would be good based on your nausea and HPT... That's really awesome! Does that make you feel happier?
Giggle - so glad you had a really great scan today and all went well with your doc! How was your little wriggler in there today?
Not long til your 12wk scan now...
I'm sorry you got Josh's results today That must have really hurt your heart to read even though you knew the results already... *hug*
I am hoping and praying with all my heart that this bub is healthy and perfect for you. You've been through enough and deserve a bub to cuddle and love on this earth.
AFM - interview went really well this morning... The recruiter is confident that we should receive an offer through in the next day or two!!
I'm starting to get really excited about my 12wk scan next Tuesday!!!
Rach and Mummylip- both those numbers seem great for dates to me- dont't judge yours by Angelski because hers are insanely high! I didn't get mine done till I was 5 + 3 and I think off the top of my head they were 8700? Not sure by this stage. All new things to worry about and obsess over by now
Mummylip- reassuring as it can be, I'm hoping your MS stops at nausea and that your boobies get happy We all obsess way too much over symptoms!
Graciesmummy- I'm stoked you've told your parents but still can't forgive them for giving you even the eensiest bit of a negative reaction. Selfish much? Siblings are such a blessing, despite the countless clashes you have with them growing up. I would never want to deprive my kids of the bond I enjoy with my brother and sister. It's just so good to have someone who GETS it. As for tummy sleeping, I was asking my mum about it the other day (travelling with no baby books and scarce internet!). My understanding is it's fine as long as it's comfortable. My already cushy belly is making Sprout pretty comfy still for now- lots of pillowiness around the wombish area
Ja- it's hard for me to believe where we've gotten to as well! The first 10 weeks seemed to take forever, now it's flying by. I agree about the sent to bubby- I'm trying to do the same thing and succeeding for the most part. Hope you and your bump-to-be are getting some good quality time
Hopeful- are you sticking to the resort? I considered Bali but too tempting to eat overly-adventurous food and go diving. Not that I'd do it- just suffer terribly at the deprivation! Enjoy
Giggle- I'm glad you got to see your little passenger giving you a wave and hope it alleviates a little of the anxiety. I think coming to terms with the fact that Josh was just terribly unlucky might be harder than getting a reason but it means good things for this pregnancy. I'm sure he's barracking for you from wherever he is. Lots of to you x
Daisy- glad things are going swimmingly and hopefully getting ever cruisier as you race towards that 12 week mark
LPH- Sorry if you explained it before- I might have missed it. Are you having cancer treatment at the moment or are you in remission? Hope it doesn't pose any problems for you along the way with this pregnancy but sounds good that your oncologist is thinking about taking the best care of you and saving you from alarmist local hospitals I would LOVE to home birth but there's so many problems with doing it in Australia. I think if I was in the UK where it's supported and they have specialist neonatal ambulances I'd go for it for sure. There's just too many risks for me in the end. I ended up choosing a midwifery program that discharge you in the first 24 hours as the next best option
AFM- home Sunday. Very relaxing day today. Having lovely one on one time with DH (although very little BDing as he's doing the Movember thing and I can't take the mo anywhere near me!).
to all I've missed!
Hi everyone thanks so much for your replies and supports: I'm bordering on meltdown every 5 seconds but also trying to be positive! The numbers are better than one of my mc's but worse than my ectopic. Lol! Dont know what to think.
Can't talk to fs till Friday- receptionist just gave me the numbers. I need a new dr. So hard being isolated! So no idea if they are good or not. I kinda just want to sit tight till it's a good time for a scan to check bubs.... Is that super neglectful of the pregnancy???
It's ridiculous, I'm peeing on sticks every five seconds! Sorry to lean on you all so much
The only diff is if you have done a FET the progesterone is always lower!
Hello all you lovely chatty ladies.
Lot sof hcg results to analyse and think over today :-) The main thing to remember is that every pregnancy is different and there is a huge range of what is a 'normal' result. The thing docs areally looking for is that rise in hcg over the 48 hr time frame. So yeah add two more days of waiting to the waiting you are already doing.
Glad to hear job interview went well GraciesMum. God luck on hearing from them soon with an offer.
WOP- hilarious that dh isn't getting much action due to his Movember efforts. I do agree though. I nagged my DH to grow a goatee on a 3 week holiday and the results were quite frankly yuk and it grew in ginger which was worse. so no facial hair for me kida gal here
Nice levels MummyLip- did you have a little sigh of releif?
Rach85- Keeping a lid on things for another week or so is not a neglectful thing for you to be doing for this little one. I feel that for mums that have felt how much a loss can hurt there is always going to be a degree of self protection going on to spare your still hurting heart more pain. Don't feel bad about needing to do that- there is plenty of time to let the feelings of happiness and anticipation in and send bub all the good vibes you can muster. We are always here for a chat whenever you need.
No emoticons today. computer says noo
Rach - We are all here to support each other and to lean on each other when we are having bad days, that's the joy of a group like this... we all TOTALLY understand the fears and emotions and exactly where you are coming from. In fact, every couple of days i have a mini freak out myself and convince myself that something is wrong. I think we all do!
Your levels look perfectly normal and fine to me. There is not much you can do at the moment other than just sit back and hope for the best and send bub lots of sticky healthy positive vibes Are you going to book in for a follow up blood test to put your mind at rest that your levels are rising nicely?
WOP - Poor DH... but i totally agree, my DH did Movember a few years ago and it was horrendously ugly. I couldn't stand him anywhere near me... i felt like i was kissing a 70's porn star!
So how was your trip to NZ? Other than being rear ended...
Thank you so much for your support with the reaction from my parents, i really appreciate all your kind words. I always wanted a sibling growing up and was very lonely at times. Even though Gracie has a half sister in my DSD i think it's nice to add another sibling closer in age to the mix. Plus lots of kids around makes Christmas time so much fun!! This baby will be our last (probably.. ) so after our 12wk scan i am really going to make the effort just to relax and enjoy this pregnancy and each milestone and little kick.
Ja - How are you travelling along hun? Any more comments from DD about the baby in your tummy? That 6th sense is amazing isn't it..
I see your DD is nearly 3 - isn't it such a great age! Grace turned 3 in October and i am just absolutely totally in love with my little girl... she just lights up my heart each and every day and is just so cuddly and kissable. I am getting in as many snuggles as i can before its no longer 'cool'!
I'm really going to miss our 'Mummy/Gracie' days when i go back to work
