I am 5.5 weeks with a baby that resembles in some way a caterpillar? Well, at least its a cute bug. RE said he sees egg sack and fetal pole, and that's looks ggrreeeeeaaattt!!! he said no hb yet, and that is not expected. Plus his office sono is an older model and usually doesn't grb hb till 7 or 8 weeks. I could have gone to hosp 60 minutes away for digital scan, but we decided based on excellent views and NO spotting to wait 2 weeks for in office exam.

Excellent news, Nikki. Don't forget to send me your stats (EDD and age and anything else you want me to include) so I can add you to the grads list. Post here or send me an email through my profile. And if you want me to wait to post until you pass a certain milestone until we add you, that's ok too.

Yes.


Give me until 8 weeks.


I have had 4 mc through the years, and they have always been at 7 weeks. RE is not sure why, he said I was supposed to wait to get pg until he had a better idea; but....I was thinking this isn't the time in life for waiting.


What I do know is dh is RH + and I am RH- and I have NEVER with all 5 kiddos realized this until now. See I thought we were both the same blood type! When I was in HS I did a blood type exp with one of my friends for chem class and determined I had A+. Well, I was so wrong!!!!! So all this time I told the OB's "oh dh and I both are the same blood type" Well, we aren't...

Well there are lots of ways to make the RH thing not a big problem. In 1973 my mom was featured in Bambino magazine, having my sister. the article was titled "RH babies can be saved".

Hi - My husband is RH pos and me RH neg - I get a shot of something (can't remember the name off the top of my head...) at so many weeks, and maybe again before giving birth......I think there's quite a bit of info out there on it if you do a search to include RH negative and pregnancy together.
