We had our first scan this morning.
We’re having a blob! On the screen, I could see head and body of bub, but in the scan photos that printed out, bub is definitely a blob! However we had a beating heart, so that made it seem so much more real.

126bpm. It’s pretty incredible seeing this little person on screen because in many ways I don’t feel like much is happening- oh I know I’m getting heartburn, food cravings etc but it still felt surreal. Seeing the b sting heart on screen was amazing.

And they confirmed growth rate corresponds to expected size, also reassuring. Estimated size of 6w5d and I’m actually 6w4d. 9.5mm long. That’s so cool.

Hope you ladies get to see your bubs soon too.

Although, we will definitely be meeting bub in May, not June as they won’t take me to term based on my history, we will be booking a Caesar at 38 weeks.

That's amazing gabbitz! That first scan is so surreal.

I got my follow up hcg results today and all is looking good, so it's slowly sinking in. I need to book my first scan and then book in with my midwife.

Welcome inexperienced, and congrats!

I wonder if we should all introduce ourselves?

This is hopefully baby number 3 for me. I have a 13 month old boy at home, and my firstborn died last year aged 14 months, after being born with an incurable illness. We live in NZ and my husband and I are both early 30s. I'm still breastfeeding and really hoping to keep it up so I can tandem feed :)

I’m so sorry for the loss of your child. I can’t even begin to imagine.
This is bubba #4 for me. Third time tandem feeding if all keeps going well.
Going down a different route with care this pregnancy. So I’m pretty excited.

I just created a secret page on the other social media platform. So if anyone wants to or whenever you’re ready, send me a pm and I’ll invite you in.
So weird seeing a 2020 due date.
When this baby is born I’ll be able to say my other children were born last “decade” haha
Makes me feel/sound old and I’m not even 30 yet!
I hope everyone is feeling okay xx

Yay Gabbitz! Super exciting! I originally wasn’t that keen on getting a dating scan but the thought of seeing that little heart beat makes me want one! Think I’ll just go with what the GP says.

Welcome and congrats inexperienced!

Rows I can not even imagine what you must have been through. Congratulations on baby number 3.

Sunny six - will PM you

Hi Everyone, well this morning I got a faint but definitely there BFP today is 11dpo so I’ll test again in a couple of days to see if it’s darker but In the mean time I booked a gp appt for Friday for bloods because my dr is so hard to get in to. This will be my 2nd pregnancy my eldest just turned 3 a week ago and we have been trying for number 2 for over a year and a half we had to seek some help and my gynaecologist gave up on my last cycle of letrozole because my follicle sat at 10mm for 2 weeks but spontaneously it grew and 5days before I was due to see a fertility specialist for what next to do I got a positive ovulation test and it looks like it worked 🤞. Based on tracking apps I should be due June 25th.

Welcome bec! How exciting to get your positive after trying for so long.

Sunnysix - I'm going to wait for my scan but will hopefully come over and join you there afterwards. Have just booked in for next Friday, when I think I'll be 7+1 but expect it change after the scan.

So after my terrible first gp appointment.
I made another appointment at the same clinic but with another dr. I explained what happened and she shook her head and ordered me a ton of bloods. That was last Thursday and I got the results back on Sunday. She ran the full pregnancy panel and all came back normal :) my hcg was at 2560 at 4 weeks and 6 days.
No repeat bloods needed so that number doesn’t mean much as I won’t know if it has doubled. But I think it’s a good number for that gestation.
Waiting on a call back to make sure I’m eligible for the birth choice I want this time :).
I’m not wanting a dating scan. So I’ll have the standard ds bloods at 10+ weeks & scan around 13 weeks. So I’ll just cruise along the next 4.5/5 weeks until I can find out more. I hate this period of waiting.

#40 Oh Penny!

Posted 14 October 2019 - 01:09 PM

Hi everyone and congratulations on your pregnancies! Just ducking my head in as I got a positive test yesterday. By my calculations I’m 4 weeks today so due 22 June. Have booked to get bloods with the GP on Saturday - fingers crossed.

I have a little boy already who will turn 2 next month. I was vomiting with him for the first four months of pregnancy. He had to be delivered by c-section 5 weeks early and spent 3 weeks in hospital. I know things could’ve been much worse but definitely hoping that this little one gives me an easier ride!

Looking forward to (hopefully) sharing the journey with you all ☺️

Jumping in to say hi :yes:
I am pretty sure I am 4 weeks and 5 days. I got my BFP on Friday night and into the doctors on Saturday for my blood test. Back in again tonight for the results.
My first and the first in my family, so very exciting times!

#42 Gabbitz

Posted 14 October 2019 - 10:05 PM

Congrats to all just joining in. Oh Penny, sounds like we have a similar story. My son turns 2 in Dec, born by emergency c-section 8 weeks early, also spent a month in hospital. Thankfully I missed the morning sickness, but was on bed rest due to a hematoma in the first trimester, so I’m also hoping for a much smoother ride for #2!

So far so good - I’m now 7weeks, whereas with DS1 I was already on bed rest by this point, so, so far, so good. Hope it stays that way!

SunnSix, glad to hear your second appointment was much better.  A result of 2000 ish sounds like a good sticky pregnancy at that point. I was 211 at 4 weeks (ivf pregnancy, so tested really early) and then a week later it had jumped to 3167, so with a result of 2000 at just under 5 weeks, it sounds like you’re going well. Yay.

Hi everyone,

It's been a really long time since I have used these forums. I recently found out I am expecting baby #3 in June.

Looking forward to sharing the journey with you all!

Hi everyone and congratulations.

I'm jumping in here as I got my BFP yesterday and confirmed Hcg 401. I didn't think this cycle would work because I started spotting on Tuesday and thought it was the start of my period. Nothing arrived so I tested yesterday.

I am still spotting, only in the mornings, so a bit concerned - I will get a repeat Hcg tomorrow or Monday and hope to see a good rise. I had a miscarriage last year in May and struggled TTC since so have got my fingers crossed that this pregnancy holds.

The anxiety is there and I'm trying not to let the stress get to me but it is hard ><.

Congrats Moo, I hope your repeat hcg gives you some reassurance. I have everything crossed that this is your sticky baby!

#49 Moo88

Posted 20 October 2019 - 07:45 PM

Thanks guys. I'm getting the results tomorrow so will know soon.

How is everyone else feeling? I've got no symptoms apart from tender boobies.

#50 rowd

Posted 21 October 2019 - 06:35 AM

I've been feeling pretty bad, nausea and extreme fatigue. But this is baby #3 in just over 3 years and I'm also breastfeeding so I'm not really expecting this pregnancy to be easy. With my first two I don't think symptoms kicked in until 6-7 weeks.  

Let us know how you get on today Moo :)
