Hi Ladies! Sorry I've not posted in a few days....I do still read along (such a stalker!) @VickyP - Yep, definitely bloated. I'm pretty little anyway, so I look bloated if I eat a biscuit! I did find after egg collection that I also got a bit constipated, so I think that added to the bloat the first couple of weeks (gone down a bit now). I have been gassy too which is not like me. I actually can't wait until I'm really showing Also, I have always suffered from UTI's so my recent one wasn't a surprise (just a PIA and a stress because I didn't want to have to take antibiotics while I'm so early in the pregnancy). Anyway, I've been taking cranberry tablets every day for a few months now and I think I've definitely been getting less of them since taking them. @onedaymaybebaby - sorry to hear about the thrush, and hope it's clearing up ok - that must be quite uncomfortable! In regards to group strep b, it isn't uncommon and it can mean you have to have antibiotics during labour. I believe you can get tested near the end of your pregnancy though to see if it's still active to know if it's actually necessary to have them so I wouldn't stress too much about it yet. Let us know what the OB says though!
AFM, not much to report....just finding it so hard to wait for the 7 week scan which is not until next Friday (I'm currently 5weeks 4 days). Apart from confirming if there is one or two bubbas in there, I just need to see a heart beat. I did another clear blue digital test on Sunday when I would have been 5 weeks 2 days, and it only came up with 2-3 weeks. I know the weeks predictor isn't that accurate, but it has freaked me a little as I was expecting it to say 3+ weeks. I've decided to step away from the other test I have still taunting me in the bathroom as it seems to stress me more than it placates me.....then again, I'd feel better if it DID come up with 3+ weeks now......ah, the mental battles never end!
I don't have that many symptoms - just the tender boobs (which really aren't that bad), and now only occasional cramping/tugging in the uterus. Not really feeling any nausea (thank god!), just feeling a bit 'off' every now and then. Also starting to get tired by the end of the day but not totally exhausted like some people report. I'm still on steriods though, and I've heard others on them say that they can hide early pregnancy symptoms.
Any other news from anyone else here? I love hearing updates
