Just called the MW. I have to go in next week for paper work or something then my first appointment is Aug 6th (8w). I'm waiting for a call back to discuss m/s treatment. Hopefully they won't argue with me.
meanwhile, I can't stop looking at today's test which looks the same as yesterday's. (but, hello, your pee was way lighter because you were up something like 4 times last night! And you temp is up again and you're exhausted and you keep having little waves of nausea... stop worrying!)
Lauren - With Dana I had such bad "morning" sickness I didn't gain early on, made up for it in the last bit, by eating a ton between sick sessions, left me with nasty stretch marks. I think every woman gains differently and every pregnancy is different so try not to worry. Especially if you are still taking care of yourself and eating a healthy diet.
Virginia - Yay for a midwife appointment, I am sure everything is fine you seem to be great at making babies.
I am still sore from the injections but doing a bit better in that aspect. I do have a cold sitting in the throat, seems if it's not one thing bothering me it's another.
Other then being sore the weekend was good, Saturday we went to Ribfest and had some yummy ribs everyone enjoyed the food, Sunday we picked up some things at the hardware store for the house and then took Natalie to the splash pad downtown for a bit she had lots of fun running around in the water.
Today was back to the grind at work, boring so I can count that as good.
Amanda - I'm glad you're starting to feel better
AFM: the symptoms are definitely hitting earlier this time! ick. I'm still not super nauseous or anything, but I have had to resort to small doses of zofran to eat meals. m/s didn't start until 6w with the first two and 5-6w with Oliver. I did end up getting a FRER and I've been reassured. At 15dpo it's at least as dark as my 16dpo was with Oliver. The test line is clearly darker than the control. :D
Virginia - Glad you got the FRER and got a nice strong line.
Since I still have a bit of pain, mainly when lying down, I called my Neurologist and talked to him. Of course he gave me some of the worse situations which suck, pain for a month or possibly (but not likely) muscle atrophy. On the more positive side of things he is sending me a prescription for a physio assessment, so I can claim it on insurance, once I get the assessment I can see if alternative methods can be used to help treat my dystonia (massage, acupuncture, chiropractic...).
Virginia - Glad things are looking good on the FRER. Crazy that you've got m/s already!
Amanda - I hope your doc figures something out for you and the pain subsides soon, ughhhh...
AFM - Sean had his 3-yr appt today. Don't ask me anything about it because I was at work and DH had to take him, hahaha... He texted me his measurements as approximations. Grrr, that does not work for my baby book. He says 32 lbs and 36". I guess he refused to take his clothes off for them, LOL. He also refused to get on the scale, so they had to weigh DH holding him, then weigh DH and subtract. Gah!!!
Mary - that sounds like something Xander would do at the doctors office! He HATES that place!
Virginia - eeeewwww m/s already. So your m/w went ahead and prescribed you zofran right away, or did you have some leftover? (as Mary cringes at the thought of expired meds)
Amanda - I'm sorry you're still hurting. I hope you're able to find some new methods of treatment.
AFM - just got back from the dentist a bit ago. Xander is obsessed with the fact that I went and keeps talking about my teeth. haha. Good thing he's interested, because the dentist wants to see him when he's 3. That's not too far off! I don't think it'll go over so well... At least the first visit is a "happy visit" where they look in the mouth, but that's basically it. No cleaning, etc. Maaaaaaaaaaaybe he'll cooperate for that... If not, hopefully he can sit on my lap for appts. I think he's tolerate that. Maybe...
I really need to take pictures off my camera. I have the last three weeks worth of belly pics on there!
Mary - Sorry to hear you couldn't get the right measurements for Sean, could you do it at home? Nat loves seeing how she's grown so getting to be still for weight and height is easy, and of course home is a bit more comfortable so she co-operates.
Lauren - Good to hear Xander enjoyed your dentist trip with you. Not sure how Nat would respond, I probably won't take her until she's 4 unless we come across problems.
Can't wait to see belly pics.
Hopefully Mary won't cringe too much. I have some left over. I have a new prescription, too, but I still have to pick it up.
So, I'm not feeling too optimistic right now. I caved and took another IC this morning and it still looks like it did as 12dpo. I'm 16dpo. My symptoms seem milder, too. I've had almost no nausea in the past 24 hours and I'm getting by today even though I was up with Oliver form 2:30-5am. I should be completely exhausted. ugh.
ETA: after way too much time looking at test progressions, I found a little reassurance. I found one which stayed the same (looked the same color as mine, too) from 13 to 17dpo and the woman later learned she had twins (one vanished, though). So... as long as it doesn't stay the same much longer I'm probably okay. Darn wondfo. If I ever have another pregnancy I might use wondfo to find out if I'm pregnant, but I'm forking over the money for FRER to see a progression.
still a little nervous. If it's the same again tomorrow I might see if my doc can do some bloodwork.
Virginia - I hope all is well. Don't analyze those IC's too much... My IC's always took till like 18+ dpo to get obviously darker.
Lauren - I'm glad he enjoyed the dentist trip... Sean is terrified of it, ughhh... I knew he would be. He throws a fit just to get his hair cut, I knew he would NOT want anyone messing in his mouth.
AFM - Yesterday was the anniversary of Sean's febrile seizure. The night before, I was talking about it with DH and I know it's sorta silly, but I always sorta blamed myself for it. I had him outside playing in the heat, he acted exhausted before I took him outside and I should've just let him sleep, but I pushed him, etc. :( So anyway, I was just sorta talking to DH about all that and Sean with the most PERFECT timing said in his sarcastic 3-year-old way, "Mama... WHO CARES??" LOL, omg I couldn't have planned it better myself. It was like, Well he obviously is over it (although I'm sure he never had any recollection of it) and I should be over it too, hahaha. So great. :)
sorry, double post... my computer screwed up and posted the above twice.
ETA: I'll just make this a new post, haha... One day recently, I had a dream that I was pregnant and giving birth. I posted about it in my March group. In the dream, this baby was our 4th, but I was embarrassed because I couldn't remember its name and the only names I could remember were Sean and Calvin's. And so there was another baby's name that I couldn't remember, aside from the new one. In the dream, it was a girl (as was the new baby). Anyway, that was not the main gist of the dream, there was more to it, but one of the girls commented that perhaps the other baby girl in the dream whose name I couldn't remember was representative of my m/c baby. Wow! It makes perfect sense... The subconscious does amazing things, I think!
