AF is due today. I'm CD 32 15 DPO. Finding out so early is strange. I was 10 days late before I tested with Maddie. Now I feel rediculous calling my OB to make an appointment and saying I'm only 4 weeks along, can I make an appointment for a month from now? They don't see you until 8 weeks.

But on a good note I called my GP to find out if I should stop taking my asthma meds and they said yes, to stop, good call as they are class-c meds and can cause miscarriage and defects. I was told only to use a rescue inhaler as needed. I think that is good b/c if I can get off the meds maybe my body can self heal. I quit smoking again 5 months ago today so that is good all the way around.

I also had my thyroid blood work done yesterday. I am going to tell my Endocrinologist that I am pregnant when she calls with the results. It's good I make sure my levels are right from the beginning to help prevent miscarriage too. So I guess finding out early has it's plus sides.

Part of me is half expecting a miscarriage. Between age and my medical issues, it seems inevitable to experience at least one. Part of me wonders if we will try again if it does happen. The realities of what another baby would bring are weighing heavy on my mind. I already feel guilt towards Maddie.

And my boobs are killing me today.

Thanks, I had to get that out.

Cyndee, you can always wait a week or two to call your OB if you want. I didn't call right away this time around because I found out super early and thought it was silly to go in that early.

Yes, I know. I really do want to try to see my OB that delivered Maddie so I think the sooner I call the more likely I can get her. But I want to talk to my Endo first so I can relay any information. I'm thinking mid-week next week I will call.

Oh yeah, I'm feeling ya on the guilt. I still feel guilty some days but I know it will be ok. I never resented having a sibling and never felt like I would have more of anything if I didn't have one.

I waited to call this time too. It was around the holidays so I just didn't bother calling until closer to when I needed to go in.

Oh and I worried a lot more about having a m/c this time too for some reason. But here I am at 29wks getting the stuffing beat out of me.
Thanks Jaidynsmum for my siggie!

Yeah, I'd say it sounds like a weird day. But, it's all normal, too. That's great that you've been able to get off the meds!

I'm sorry for your weird day, but I think it's all perfectly normal. Finding out you're pregant brings a whole whack of emotions.

And I agree, I don't see the rush to call your OB if you want to wait a week or two - like you said, they won't see you until 8 weeks anyway. I'd leave it for today, you never know by tomorrow or the next day you may be keen to call to make the appointment, no rush.

Try to stay positive - everyone worries while pregnant, especially early on but just don't let it consume you. And I know all about that believe me. I got through pregnancy literally one day at a time and that worked for me. Hang in there... I can foresee that you'll be a big ol' 35 week preggo and we'll all be commenting on how quickly it went before you know it.

Those feelings are very normal Cyndee! I felt/feel guilty with Kaylee and DH too! But I know it will all work out, just like it will for you! I too worried about m/c with both pregnancies, but things will be just fine and think positive! Can't wait til your first appt!
