@bowtiesarecool, I cant believe your boss did that. It wasnt his news to tell and at a board meeting!! Gosh, im so sorry this happened to you. *shakes fist violently at your boss! @olliesmum, I dont know what to say. Im so sorry for your loss, I cant say I understnad cause I dont. Thats great that you have one healthy bubs on board but im sorry ot didnt work out for the other twin @ellenbun, welcome :-) all of the girls here are so wonderful and supportive. @melros, how are you doing??
Afm - woke up feeling aweful. Went to the gp and turns out I have tonsillitis for the first time in my life! And a coldsore started coming this afternoon... argh! Im nervous cause I know a fever can be dangerous to a developing baby in the early stages. So im hoping I have a tough little bean on board. I did my beta at work yesterday (14dp5dt) and it was 2260. So im thinking thats not too bad.
Hi to everyone else

@Megsarama26 I am good thanks, you? Had my BT this am and hcg now 105,000 which is what they normally see at 8 weeks (I am 7 today) so chuffed about that. Just trying to pour water down my throat as in one hour I have my first scan! We are so so excited How are you travelling? Your levels are looking good too! I hope you are resting up at home?
@olliesmum I'm so sorry to hear that be kind to yourself
The only symptoms I really have is achiness/crampy which is normal, a bit sicky at times and today I have a headache. I have college tonight so I hope it goes away
How is everyone else travelling?
@Molros congratulations! I'm feeling much the same as you.... not many symptoms at all.... I've gained a few kgs but I think a lot of that was from all the medication etc
Bring on the 12 week mark I say!
Im trying to watch what I eat but Im only 5'2 so I reckon my bump will show quite early....hopefully not be too noticeable before 12 weeks as we're not telling before then!
Its weird not having many symptoms isn't it, its almost like it'd be reassuring to feel ill but Im sure everyone with bad MS would disagree! I find the period like pains the worst, I have to remind myself its not my period coming!
ellenbun - firstly welcome! I've always been fairly thin....and with my first born son I put on close to 23kgs! Second time round I def don't want to do that so I've been researching lots of things about exercising etc. They say exercise is great in pregnancy, just make sure you keep your fluids up and don't get your core temperature up (especially in the first trimester), try not to engage in anything where you could get hurt (contact sports, bike riding - in case you fall)... I want to do weights coz I don't want flabby arms and I'm told low kgs with high repetitions is fine. Listen to your body and don't go too hard
All the best!
Sorry sweetie What a shock that must have been! and so hard to be on one hand rejoicing for one heartbeat, but devestated about losing the other you didn't even know about.
At least it's only your first scan -- I think if it had been farther along, complications with one of them might have also made things harder the other.
So hard to have to mourn something you weren't expecting, while also feeling guilty about not feeling happier for the good news. Hang in there xxx
I have PCOS as well (which is why I came to this IVF board and not a generic preggo one), and had been doing really well on a restricted carb diet plus regular exercise. Started back on the carbs after my first POAS BFP since I thought it would be better for my embie, but I kind of exploded -- which can't be good for it either! so not sure if I need to restrict them again, at least a bit.
I can go pretty well when I'm being disciplined, but if you give me an inch ... well, like you said: carbsx10000!
I'm going to try to make a concerted effort now like you! Should we form a support group? lol
What steps are you taking to meet your goals? In addition to walking to work, I'm going to try to take the stairs (three flights, at least twice a day), and I'm going to look at pregnancy meal plans tonight.
c'mon hot mommas (to be)!
