Hey @ScubaGal I only had a bit if nausea at 6-7 weeks then I've had nothing and I'm pregnant with twins and my hcg levels were very high 240,000 at 8 weeks.
Congrats @Soques a boy how exciting for you.
I'm going to find out the sex of the twins but will have to wait till my 19 week scan as I decided not to do the other blood tests like you I'm just going to do the normal first trimester screen at 12 weeks.
Just hanging out now till I have my first OB appointment next week and get to see my little ones FX they are still both there after my little bleed last week from my SCH but the good news is I'm starting to show at 10 weeks tomorrow!
@Nezz79 is it wrong that I hate you just a littttlllleeee tiny bit hehe. 😉 Just kidding. How lucky to not have any MS and with twins! I'm sure your bubs will be just perfect at your first appt.
@Soques that's awesome news about your little boy. How cool to know so early.
AFM, still trucking along. The ADS is, I feel starting to ease. I'm eating a bit better. Actually got some meat down a few times and it stayed there! Still exhausted all the time. We had our 12wk scan this morning. All clear for DS. Phew. So no more decisions to make just yet. We have a holiday booked from 11 October and I'm absolutely hanging out for it. Even though I'm at home and not working, I really need some fun times after this sickness.
I'm also starting to get excited about organising stuff for bub. First time ever, so I'm embracing it. I think the scan really helped today to reassure me.
Glad everyone seems to be doing good (under the circumstances). ☺️
@Soques - CONGRATULATIONS!! how exciting xxx
AFM - had my appt today, got to see very active 9w old baby in there with a good strong heartbeat. Feeling much better too - phew, on the up, now for the next round of testing.
Also have an updated due date bc of c section. Will be about 3 April due to OB leave (so at about 37w+2d) excited much???!! Aarrgghh!! x
Question... For those that are having schedualed c-sections... Can I ask, is it your choice or a medical choice to go c-section instead of naturally? Just wondering...
Hi @Soques this will be my 3rd c sec.
1st emergency c sec due to cpd non progress after labouring for AGES...
2nd planned, medically necessay for placenta previa.
3rd planned - choice (so far, pending tests etc)
I would have gone natural and did try but alas the choice wasn't mine. Given my positive experience (well mostly!) With my 2nd planned section and given I have 2 at home, and a fifo dh - having a date is ultra helpful and given my OB and hospy is an hour away. It is convenient for me and helps with my anxious moments knowing when it will all happen :-)
