I'm new to this board and I'm hoping to find advice/inspiration. Two days ago I got a BFP. I had a miscarriage at about 6w in October of last year and DH and I had been TTC ever since. Now that I finally got what I was hoping for (BFP) I don't really know how to handle it. I am trying to stay positive but I'm noticing every little thing (no nausea, bb tenderness is low) and thinking that means I'm going to m/c again.
I didn't have that great of an experience at the doctor's office last time, being shuttled around to all sorts of people, being informed by the u/s technician, then having to go back to have the midwife confirm it, then having to go back to have the doctor confirm it. I know that I should call the office and make an appointment, but I think the blood draws that I know they'll do will only cause me to stress more.
Sorry for rambling. DH and I don't want to tell anybody yet, and I have nobody to talk to.
You can always vent here! Congratulations on your BFP! That is fantastic! I also had a m/c last October and when I got PG again I was just like you. I analyzed every symptom (and lack of symptom...and imaginary symptom...and possible decrease in symptoms ) that I had. The women here are fantastic. They are great listeners and give fantastic advice. PAL is scary. And, I don't blame you for not scheduling your appointment if you don't want to stress about your numbers. I didn't have them done this time. It was too much of a stressor for me. I'll say a little prayer that everything continues to go well and that you have a happy and healthy nine months! Welcome again...can't wait to get to know you better
Congrats and welcome to PAL! Like Kelty said PAL is scary but the girls here are wonderful. I also did not have the best experience with the doctor with my m/c. I think we all overanalyze our symptoms or lack of them, I took it as a fact of life. Also I never went to get my numbers checked, I thought it would stress me out and I did not see a need for that.
to PAL! The ladies here are awesome! Im so sorry for your loss, but congrats on this pregnancy!
I too had a miscarriage last October. I found out I was pregnant again in January and I also analyzed every symptom and worried about every little twinge I felt! I think without the ladies here at PAL I would have gone crazy by now lol.
Can you refuse the blood draws? I didnt want to have them this time around because I knew they would make me stress more. I just had one lot of betas done, but I was admitted to hospital at the time so didnt have a choice really. But I refused to have any more done.
My first weight loss goal is to lose 21lbs, which is 10% of my body weight
