So glad to hear all is well with you at this time. As for me i have not gained any weight, ive actually lost about 2lbs. Symptom wise when i first wake up i feel nauseous, tired more through out the day, and really hungry at times. I think we will share a lot of things together since im due December 15th.
Aww congrats!! We will share alot since were only a few days apart lol I figured I would experience alot more symptoms but I haven't really had any at all I gained like 2 pound and bloated. Other then that I haven't been tired, haven't been nauseous or anything. Im not complaining though hehe
Dont worry about not having symptoms just yet, your still early. Most women dont get them till 6-8 weeks when you hCG levels get high. My nausea is not bad just enough to notice its there and to not want to eat at times. I feel you on being bloated because im the same way and most my jeans are to tight for comfort right now. Have you been to the doctor yet or had your levels checked? Any craving kick in yet? As for me i want everything that has to do with cheese or pizza. I know it sounds crazy right?
Appointment for when your 8 weeks a long or in 8 weeks? As for me i had to go to the lab every 2 days and was placed on progesterone suppository. Im also a high risk pregnancy so i have appointments every 2 weeks. Our first ultrasound is next monday im so excited but scared at the same time.
Sorry that wasn't very specific lol when I'm 8 weeks along. The dr office I went to wasn't very clear about things so I might be finding another dr. I asked if there was any test that needed to be done now other then just a urine test and she just told me not at the moment and set A date for a visit when I'm 8 weeks along. I've never been pregnant or anything so I'm not sure exactly how everything works : (( awww good luck let me knw how it goes
Actually thats pretty normal for a first pregnancy. I remember when i was pregnant with my oldest they sent me for a blood test and if that came back positive i got an appointment. The appointment was in like 2-3 weeks so i was about 7-8 weeks. I would call and ask or demand they do a blood test now. Thats how i am when it comes to my health.
Hello : ) I just got my BFP on monday and im sooooo super excited! Im @ 4weeks and 6 days. I called my doctor the morning of my BFP and asked if I could make an appointment to confirm pregnancy. They said they typically don't to that anymore and insurance wolnt pay for it because HPT are so accurate now a days that it wasnt really necessary. She said the test that they do in-house is pretty much the exact same thing I would do at home. I bit drawn back with that information but said okay. Then they set me up for my first pregnancy appointment on may 11th. (that day cannot come soon enough! lol) I've since taken 2 additional pregnancy tests just for my sanity lol. All positive :)
I still wish that I could go to the doctor earlier. I just want to make sure everything is where it should be. I called another doctors office out of curosity today to see what there first pregnancy policy was and it was the same, we see you at 8 weeks (ugh). So I guess im just going to have to wait....
As far as symptoms go....well I had some cramping in my left lower abdomen the week before my BFP and for a few days after. Now I seem fine no more cramping. I was also constipated last week (sorry tmi) my bbs have been a bit sore not too bad but full feeling. Slight nausea the last couple days upon waking but not bad at all. Just a mild feeling there then goes away once I eat.
So according to medhelp I am due december 24th (Christmas eve baby : ) )
Dolphin05- I hope this pregnancy goes well for you!!! : ) Good luck with your next appointment!
Lukieswifey- I hate that it seems like forever until May will get here! I cant wait till my first appointment!!!
Sorry so long...lol Hope to hear from you ladies soon!!
Hi all. Am due Dec 17th. This will be my 4th child. My others are 15 , 13, 13. Super excited about this baby. Taken 4 years to get here. ( i remarried 4 years ago) I am the same weight , but am having some nausea, and food aversions so far. No > urination yet. Sue
I get a little nauseous here and there but not to the point of puking. I also got really tired last week but that has gone away some. My only real constant symptom is my chest. It is definitely bigger (and it was big to begin with so i'm feeling a little ridiculous) and they are SORE! The amount of soreness changes day to day though. Yesterday was bad. I laid on my stomach and even that hurt them. I'm not complaining though. I even wish i had more morning sickness just to feel pregnant. I've waited 4 years for this to happen so bring it on! I just want to feel pregnant and know this baby is still doing well in there. Haha.
I just wanted to introduce myself. My name is Joanna, I'm 38 (almost 39) years old and got pregnant by IVF.
I don't have children yet so I'm really waiting for this one:)
According to Medhelp calendar I'm 5 weeks, 5 days pregnant with due date on December 23rd.
I don't have too many symptoms yet, just sore breasts, a little bit of nausea and extreme hunger.
This coming Friday I will have my first ultrasound and can sit still;)
I hope everybody is doing great and your babies are growing fast:)
hey girls....my name is Amy, I just turned 40 in March and this is my 4th time at IVF/icsi and it finally worked. We have male factor so my husband doesn't produce many sperm. I have a 4 year old daughter named Ellie from my 1st IVF.
I figured my due date as December 22, 2011 on ivf.ca, not sure if it is correct or not.
My symptoms are just hunger, little gagging once in a while, tingling boobs.
My ultrasound is May 4th and I cannot wait!
Alexsusan - this is where you are! I found ya! I was on a different forum before.
Best wishes for healthy babies for everyone!!!!
Congratulations on your BFP!
It's weird that they don't at least do blood test... I'm with Fertility Clinic, so they really care about this stuff, but even in past, when I suspected pregnancy it only took my doctor's order to have beta done at a hospital...
Anyway, so far you don't have to be worried about any numbers, so you can enjoy being pregnant:)
My due date is either Dec.21 or Dec.23 according to 2 different online calculators, so we are pretty close..
Dolphin05: Hi, how was your first ultrasound? I hope everything is perfect:)
alexnsusan: We are same age, but it's my first baby.. How are you doing? Did you have any problems getting pregnant?
My #'s were 286 and then 1060 3 days later. I've done a # of IVF's but none resulted in pregnancy. After 4 years of trying this just happened naturally so no transfers for me this time. I had been doing a # of supplements, cleanses and accupuncture. I am soooo super excited! Feeling tired and a little gaggy but not too bad. I get weird pains in my lower abdomen now and then which totally freak me out but i'm trying to stay positive and relaxed. TRYING. Hahaha. This is my first pregnancy. I'm 33.
So you have them, too. The pain is freaking me out. I was cramp and pain free for a few days, but today I have it on and off, especially when I get up from sitting position or move around a lot.
This is my first pregnancy, too so I'm not sure if it's normal. I got pregnant through IVF, but took Chinese Herbs and a lot of supplements in addition and did acupuncture, too.
I am around 6 weeks now. Not sure when dr will do the ultra sound yet. I hope it's soon. I got pregnant on my first round of clomid. Really didn't think it would work because I heard so many negative things about clomid and older women. My first sign was feeling like AF was coming about week before my period was due. Boobs heavy and sore. Oh and constipation. I'm not cramping anymore but boobs still sore and heavy and this constipation is driving me crazy. I haven't been nauseous yet.
It's probably nothing. When you go to "My Pregnancy" on MH, it says that 37% women experience spotting during early pregnancy... I've had it too couple days ago when my doc wanted me to start alternating Crinone gel and progesterone shots. After taking Crinone for 2 days, I've experienced light pink spotting. My nurse said it happens and that's normal.
Take care and pray for me tomorrow:)
I feel you - my boobs are very sore, too and I have to take Metamucil and eat dried prunes for this horrible constipation. I experience a little bit of nausea around noon til afternoon, not in the morning;) And hunger is a big one for me! I eat every 2 hours and wake up hungry at night...
omg! I forgot your ultrasound is tomorrow!! Good luck and I will say some prayers for you. How many weeks and days will you be tommorrow? I can't wait to see what you will see in there!! What time is your appt.?
I will be exactly 6 weeks along tomorrow (same as you, right?). I even called them and asked if it's not too early to do u/s and they told me I should see heartbeat 2 weeks after my first beta. So now the pressure is on.
I have 10:30 am appointment and my husband decided to go with me (it was last minute decision and I'm happy about it).
I will let you know as soon as I know something:)
By the way, kp192 is also having her first u/s tomorrow. You can press "back to forum" and then choose thread "hi" - I started it not intentionally, it was just a mistake, but some of the girls are there;)
My pregnancy symptoms are back! My boobs hurt and I feel like puking all the time (except the time when I eat - it surprisingly helps me..)
Tomorrow is the BIG DAY, I hope that my symptoms mean that my baby is growing..:)
I will let you know tomorrow.
I've actually experienced nausea for the past couple of days. They were quick spurts but totally unexpected. I didn't experience nausea for my two other pregnancies or even for the pregnancy that resulted in a m/c. So I am hoping that this is a good sign.
My boobs are starting to get sore. Before it was just my nipples but it is now my whole boobs. I'm also extremely tired and moody.
I'm 8 weeks now...everything is the same as far as symptoms. I guess I'm lucky I'm not getting the nausea that some women get. One new symptom I have now is heartburn. Heartburn already, wow! I don't remember getting it that early with my other 2 pregnancies. It may be due to the amount of food I eat a day now...I seem to be hungry all the time.
