HI! My name is Becca, I used to be on the board 4 or 5 years ago (June Berries 2008 - BeccaWray34), since then there have been LOADS of changes to pregnancy.org, and my old login has been cancelled! So, now I've set up a new name, and start a fresh!
I am cautiously optimistic about joining October 2013!!! I got a BFP on Feb 6, but I have NO idea when I O'd. (this is a happy SURPRISE) I have had a CRAZY year, finding out all kinds of new and (not so) exciting blood clotting disorders. I've been practically living at Johns Hopkins since May trying to get back to "normal"!! OF COURSE the minute we leave the JH area, I get preggers!!
I contacted my hematologist, before an OB/GYN, to start on Lovenox shots (100mg daily). I went to a local (temporary) gyn and she is VERY vague. She did an U/S the first visit (3 weeks ago) as well as lots of blood work. My BP was an issue at 150/105, so I was immediately put on different BP meds. My first HCG was 10,000, and 40 hours later was 17,222. She didn't do another HCG, and never dated the U/S and told me last week that I was only 5 weeks... I don't see how that's PHYSICALLY possible since we had an U/S 3 weeks earlier... but I'm not giving too much weight to it. We'll know more when we get back and get an OB/GYN at JH.
So, I know that was a SUPER long intro... I am VERY happy to be here, and can't wait to get to know you all!
welcome and good luck. When will you be back with a better ob?
big boy 12.8.07 @ 39+2 7lbs 8oz, 20.5" BFed for 13 months
middle boy 8.12.09 @ 39+4 7lbs 9oz, 21" BFed for 13.5 months
little boy 4.26.11 @ 38+4 6lbs 14oz, 19.5" BFed until 26mo and restarted at 30mo!
baby boy 10.25.13 @ 41+0 8lbs 15oz, 21.5"
8.16.12 & 12.16.12
We're hoping to leave next week & will go immediately to Johns Hopkins OB / GYN! I'm trying to not get too nervous, but the more I think about dating & numbers, I get a little scared!!
In the mean time, I hope that the lovenox is helping... is anyone else taking lovenox shots?
Congratulations and welcome! I hope all goes well with your new OB

Missed M/C (Dec 07)
Ectopic (Mar 12)
Baby #3 due Oct 1st!!
I had another appointment yesterday afternoon.... GOOD NEWS, we got to see baby!! She had a hard time getting a measurement, but FINALLY she said that she now thinks 9 weeks 1 day, which makes WAY more sense!
My BP was still way high (150/102) so they doubled my medicine... Which makes me so tired! (I know it's worth it though!)
I'll have one more appointment with her Tuesday, just to check BP, then head "home" Wednesday! I'm nervous... JH won't recommend a doctor out of their system, but they don't have an OB GYN in DC. Anyone here from DC?
We got a pretty good picture of the baby... But it's HUGE (literally an 8-1/2x11 sheet of paper!) I'll try to put it up today!
Sorry... Double post!
