Annerley 18 weeks yesterday, everything has been going well
Thats so wonderful to hear!! Are you going to find out the gender?
I'm really thrilled for you and so so happy that your time has come!
@Annerley so lovely to hear from you and with some happy news on top! I completely understand your current feelings... I'm 16w today and I think I'm still the same... Now I'm feeling more normal and can't feel her kick yet it's too surreal... Counting down to my next appointment in 10 days now....
@Billie2 hope you've had as much relaxing as possible... Fingers xd for good results tomorrow xxx
@Annerley I am going to wait and have a surprise on delivery day! Family and friends all have their little bets going, I am just so happy and thankful that I'm pregnant with a baby gender doesn't matter to me!
@Tanej78 it's weird between appointments and when you have stopped feeling sick, it makes you wonder if it was all just a dream. Hopefully you start feeling movement soon. I have an anterior placenta so I may not feel anything for a few more weeks. But I have the 20 week scan in 19 days as the Brisbane show holiday has pushed me back a bit
Thanks @Tanej78 I'm glad to hear you are doing well. You constantly feel like you are counting down to appointments, hey? I'm already counting down to each little step this time, just hoping!
@MrsSMS you are very patient! I always wanted a girl but after doing Ivf to have #1, I really didn't mind and was convinced I was having a boy. It was a lovely surprise but a shock to hear it was a girl as I'd been saying he all along. This time after everything, I really don't mind either. There was a time where I didn't know if my little girl would get a sibling so either is a blessing. I'd love her to have a sister and I'm such a girl mum but obviously having one of each would be wonderful too. We are going to do the blood test at 10 weeks and will find out. I'm going to tell them to not tell me the gender and I'll just collect that result in an envelope and we are planning a cake reveal with both sets of parents and my sis and BIL so all going well, that will all happen in a little under 2mths. I'm just way too impatient and need to be organised.
With my DD, my placenta was prosteria so I felt little air bubbles and the what felt like little taps from the inside from about 16w but didn't get my first full on movement where my tummy actually moved until 19w.

Haha @Tanej78 Im still in my pyjamas at 11am! Just watched Maze Runner with DS8. I feel like Im wishing my weekend away and doing 4 pessaries a day.
Congrats @Annerley !!! You are a week ahead of me. Thats if I am still pregnant. I have no idea. Tomorrow is scaring the pants off me. At 4wks pregnant you cant feel much (??) so I don't have much to go off. Im still having dull little aches, back aches & chest still heavy. The bleeding has stopped. Thank you Oripro! I have to admit, a call to see if you are STILL pregnant is worse than any Ive ever had to get. I had a huge breakdown last Wednesday but scared of what tomorrows news will do to me. Ive cried so much already.
4 pessaries a day @Billie2!! I'm doing 2 a day, all worth it though, I know.
I've had a feeling of fullness in my lower tummy, a bit of back ache and tingly boobs but everything that can be put down to the progesterone. These past few days hips have ached at times and I've had a few days where I've been starving lately but I hadn't felt much at all at 4wks. When I had DD, I was on Crinone so had similar feelings but they weaned me off them at 5wks and my progesterone was stable so I didn't really have any symptoms except the occasional hunger and fatigue til 8/9wks.
All the best, I really hope it goes your way and will be thinking of you! I'm happy to hear the bleeding has stopped! I felt similar to you just over a week ago. I had prepared myself for the first phone call to say that my levels were really low and it was likely to fizzle out so when they were congratulating me, I actually said are you sure?? I had my second bloods 3 days later and they didn't call til about 1:30. That was last Saturday and I pretty much wasted the day sitting around waiting and hoping. I was so scared too and was worried my levels may have decreased or not risen enough. I was so surprised by the phone call and it made me feel a little better. I've felt a tiny big pregnant since then (still probably just from the meds) and felt a bit more at ease getting the 3rd beta.
I'll be packing it when it's time for my scan though!
@MrsSMS exactly... Is it all real? Haha.. You are much more strong than me to wait re gender, I keep telling everyone I've already waited 9years I'm not waiting another 9months so we found out with the harmony blood test... IF we get lucky enough to fall again, I'd like to surprise bake I think... I think my placenta is posterior from a comment at my 10week scan that it was on the back wall but not sure if it can move?
@Annerley yea I don't think we'll ever stop counting? First the 2ww then inbetween bloods for HCG counts and now it's between scans and OB appointments haha... This is my longest so far, 4 weeks between seeing her and any doc... 10days to go!! I was feeling a bit anxious last week, but trying to keep out of my head...
@Billie2 good... Giving yourself timeout after a stressful week is the best idea... Xx
@Tanej78 Sorry!!!!! Im still typing. Im so confused.
Beta doubled every 57 hours, not 48 which I thought was rule of thumb.
I dont know how to feel? Im still pregnant! Thank fck for that! Im so scared still!!!
