Hi,

This is my first pregnancy since an early miscarrage in July of 2011. I have a beautiful almost 4 year old daughter that I became pregnant with after being on metformin for PCOS. After our miscarriage I went to the doctor to have blood work done and it came back showing no signs of PCOS. Since then we have gone on to adopt a beautiful baby girl who is now 9 months old. 

I'm very early in this pregnancy and other than maybe being more tired than normal I'm not having many symptoms yet and I am very nervous. According to LMP I should be 5 wks 3 days. I had a blood draw on Monday of this week and hcg was 428 which was consitant for those dates. I don't go to the doctor until next Wednesday and will request another blood draw then. Monday will be the time of my cycle when the mc started with the baby we lost so I'm hoping if I can get past that point I will feel better about the pregnancy. I'm just so nervous especially when I'm not feeling pregnant.  I hope this board will be of encouragement to me.

Thanks! So far we are at 8 weeks. We had early ultrasound at 6 weeks and saw a heart beat of 124. I'm having terrible food aversions and nausea. So far so good. I hope you have a H&H 9months too!
