Hi! Just figured I'd introduce myself! I'm 20 years old and a first time single mom living in BC so I've had a ton of questions come up! Lol
I never did get my hcg levels checked, which did worry me because everyone else I knew knew their levels! But baby must have been fine because I'm 13w5d now!
I had my first ultrasound at 9w2d, however I thought I was almost 11weeks at the time, and it was for dating purposes as well which obviously proved handy! My next ultrasound will be at 18 weeks, and I scheduled a 3d ultrasound on May 10th at 21 weeks to find out the gender!
I'm just about to make some calls to start the search for a midwife, which luckily BC does fully cover, however I have no idea how to go about this process, so I'm just going to call the two places here and hope for the best! Lol.
Besides all this my pregnancy has been going perfectly smooth and I pray it continues that way and I can't wait to meet my beautiful baby <3
My name is Sandi and I am 36 years old from the Toronto area. I have one son (8 months old) who has Down syndrome. We are TTC our second child, but I have been recently told that I have blocked tubes (possibly resulted from scaring from my C-Section). We had been referred to a fertility doctor because I have a pituitary tumour which prevents ovulation unless I take a certain medication. I have recently started taking this medication again (Dostinex) which is how we got pregnant the first time. Unfortunately we have not been able to conceive after 5 months of trying. So the fertility doctor ordered a few tests, one being a HSG test, and the results say my tubes are now blocked. I am wondering if anyone has had the same problem, because the doctor told us that if indeed my tubes are truly blocked, our only course of action is IVF. Does anyone know if this is true? I read on various posts that blocked tubes can be corrected with tubal surgery (but it appears this procedure is only in the USA!) Anyone know of other alternatives here in Canada?
My name is Heather and I live in a small town close to London, Ontario. Today I am 16weeks 3days pregnant with my first. DH and I are super excited!
I know one of you mentioned the Canadian forum to me before and I forgot about it until I came across it today!!
