HI Ladies.... I'm a newbie!
Thu, 03-11-2004 - 7:40pm
I am a recent grad from the TTCAM board and am happy to be signing in here although I am scared to be pregnant again! I had a missed MC in Nov... was supposed to be 12 weeks but baby only measured 8 weeks (we had seen a HB on US at 7 weeks 1 day!). Had a D&C two days before Thanksgiving.... bad timing! So anyways I took an HPT yesterday after AF was over a week late.... I knew I was preggo but bought one just to confirm.... it was a +++ in seconds! I will be calling my OB tomorrow to make my first appointment... I don't know why I am hesitant to call.... just affraid to jinx it I guess! After my MC my OB said she would do a 6 weeks U/S and also check my progesterone just to be safe although she didn't think that was my problem last time (her thoughts were chromosomal error). So are there any symptoms that tend to go along with having a progesterone deficiency... aside from MC? I have had faint queezies here and there, Lots of cramping but no spotting or bleeding, lots of gas (burping and otherwise... this is how I knew I was preggo...LOL). I am just praying this one sticks and that once we see that little HB that it keeps on beating! I wish I could go back to being so naive about pregnancy.... my pregnancy with DS was so perfect and textbook ... we never thought a MC would happen to us!!!!

Look forward to getting to know you all! Good Luck to everyone!!!!

Tondi! So glad to see you here! Congrats on your BFP!!! That's so wonderful!

I was just thinking the same thing the other day, about going back to being naive and innocent again. That would be nice! I had normal worries with DS, but nothing compared to how I've felt in the last 8-10 weeks.

Sending you lots and lots of SBV!! Here's to our DSs becoming big brothers later this year!

Good luck with your testing and early u/s!

Welcome Tondi! Congratulations on your pregnancy. I'm a TTCAM grad also; I m/c'd in Sept 03 and am now pg again....19 1/2 weeks along). And like you (and so many others), I had a textbook pg with my son and never expected a m/c either. I guess you just assume that after one successful pg, the next one will be the same. If only it was that way!

Wishing you a happy and healthy 9 months ahead. The first 12 weeks are the toughest emotionally (in my opinion). Hoping your 12 weeks fly by uneventfully!
