or at least I was trying. I sooo want to think that maybe this baby is just off in growth and will catch up...but I just don't know. I looked at my chart today and I MAY have O'd a day or 2 later, so I don't know how that would make the baby's growth off by 4-5 days. It doesn't really make sense. My OB said I could have implanted late as well, based on the fact that my first hpt was pretty faint, and he said it could effect growth. I dunno though...how does late implantation effect growth? I mean cells would still be dividing and multiplying well before implantation. And the baby is nourished from the yolk sac, right? It just has me baffled. And my symptoms aren't stronger either. I dunno girls. I guess next week's ultrasound is gonna tell me which way this pg's gonna go. Well, I'm just gonna love this baby for as long as I can. What else can I do...but hope and pray?

Geez...how did I go from hopeful to PAL brain in less than 24 hours? I'm hopeless. :(

I'm sorry the hopefulness didn't last, PAL brain never leaves for long. As you say, you just gotta love this LO for as long as you can and keep rememberin that flickerin HB you saw yesterday. You were pleasantly surprised at your US yesterday and I have every faith that it will be the same next week *hugs*

Thanks. I wish I could relax more. It just all seems so familiar...I was surprised to see my baby and HB last May too cause I didn't have many symptoms either...but I still lost her 2 weeks later. It's just haunting me. *sigh*

((((HUGS)))) Dani! And hang in there! I'm actually feeling movement and that still doesn't stop my ridiculous PAL pessimism. I don't know if this'll help or not but my EDD is 2 whole weeks later than it should be. I totally freaked out at my first u/s when they barely see anything because I should've been 2 weeks further than they were finding. The dr reassured me that freak things like that happen with late O-ing and implantation, etc., etc. So I refused to tell anyone (besides dh and the PAL board of course:smileywink: until we had a more in-depth u/s at 17 wks. And I just felt a kick now, so try to stay hopeful! I'm praying your baby sticks!!

I hate that feeling, like you're right back where you started-waiting for an ultrasound to take away your fears. I hope this week goes by fast, and the news is great. I'm so happy about the heartbeat, though. Try to hang in there.

Thank you all. My ultrasound is next Tuesday @ 1:40 pm- MT. I think I will be more scared for this one because if there's no growth or very little, I'll know it's pretty much doomed....even with a HB. It's just happened too many times like this, that's why I'm worried. Anyway, thank you again.

Hi Dani,

You go from hopeful to PAL brain in 24 hours because you've been burned before. It's to be expected, at least by those of us who've been through it.

If it makes you feel any better, with my first pg- from which I got my beautiful, healthy, wonderful DD#1- they pushed my
