sure is @MrsChino!! Scary but unbelievable all at the same time!!
Dumb question: what did you do with leftover drugs? I had bought the whole prescription of Gonal F and it is taking up a bit of space in the fridge... I should probably just chuck it but it feels so wasteful. That stuff is expensive!
Norgirl. Yes!! I have like 4 boxes in my fridge and feel bad about chucking them but the clinic doesn't take them back anyway. I think if everything is ok with my 7 week scan on Monday I'll take the plunge and chuck them.my fridge is so full
I'd suggest you post in the IVF forums. Someone in your area would happily take them off your hands.
Howdy everyone! Welcome to the new ladies! Yay the group is getting bigger!
How is everyone traveling? I'm now 10 1/2 weeks! Time has actually flown this week which is great. The MS has pretty much eased now and I just get queasy when I am hungry so have to remember to eat every few hours. Am still weaning down the prog and still on prednisolone so I've put on about 3kg already! And nearly all of it is around my belly. It's huge 😢 so I'm struggling to find clothes that fit and kinda hide it so people think it is just normal weight gain. Luckily I've been on and off the steroids over the years so people at work are used to my weight going up and down.
DH and I also hired a fetal Doppler this week. Couldn't find anything first night but found HB 2nd time. DH wasn't home but I filmed it. He tried looking this morning and found it (after I gave up after about 2mins of looking). I know a lot of OBs etc don't like people using them at home but I am really enjoying it. I know that we won't hear it every time. But it is so nice to be able to hear it at home. Am using it as stress relief for DH who is starting to get very anxious. He's good for a few days after a scan but then starts worrying.
Woof I feel exactly the same as your dh. I also feel ok for a few days after the scan and then I start to freak out. I try to calm myself down but it's hard. Especially when a lady from work tells me a horrible story about her sister-in-law losing her baby over Christmas... It just makes me freak out even more!
Glad to hear the ms has eased. Mine has as well which is nice but I've been EXTREMELY tired. Last night at 8:30 I was in bed asleep... It wasn't even dark outside! This next week will be a struggle before we go away the following week. I'm considering having a half day this week to just go home and sleep!
Yep, I'm in the same boat when it comes to worrying after a scan! I have my 9w scan on Tuesday, and the same fears have started again. I can't get the idea that I've had a mmc to disappear completely. I just have to keep reminding myself that last time I had a mmc, it was already all over at this point, and that this is the longest I've been pregnant (9w4d). Gosh, all this past trauma really takes the joy out of this whole early pregnancy thing, doesn't it?!
It sure does hermia!
We had our mmc at 9w1d so having a scan at 9w was good but then the few days after both hubby and I were so anxious. I tend to get more nervous before a scan than after. Being able to hear the HB has been a real blessing for us. If we can do that say twice a week that'll get us through to the 12w scan with less nerves.
The up and downs of it all are tough - wanting to be excited but also scared to be excited. I have less and less scared moments though. So am hoping it will all ease after 12w. Can't wait til I can start feeling movement though - haha there's always one more thing that we want before we relax!
I'm the Same girls. I have my 7 weeks scan tomorrow and am petrified that there will be something wrong or no heartbeat. I don't know how I'm going to cope if that's the case!! At least it's finally nearly here my god what a wait!
Oh good luck hopeful!
The wait for the 7w scan - argh! That was truly painful!
Sending loads of happy beating heart wishes for you. It's a nerve wracking time all right!
