looks like this one might "stick" (pg ment)

well, i've been snooping around this past week and laying low. i wanted to update those who wanted to know how things went with my recent bfp. i updated my signature with my recent betas. they are so encouraging.

i had my u/s moved and will get the yak sack looked at tomorrow. i am trying to be optimistic but of course i am completely frightened. i want to see the heartbeat, but may have to wait a few more days. i am just hoping and praying that all will look well.

i don't have many symptoms - just some SERIOUS bloating and sore nipples on-and-off. this is from the prometrium suppositories i take (200 mg/day). this is why my u/s was moved up. i have high beta numbers but almost no symptoms. i just look chubby.

as far as getting much support, it's been dh. RESOLVE's "pregnant after infertility" is very cliquey. i don't get responses when i post questions but i have really enjoyed reading what others post. most on the site have been forum buddies for years, literally. there is much support for ttc but not much after you do. it's a bit cold out there.

this update was not to offend and i wish everyone luck. i know it's hard... even getting a bfp doesn't make the hardship go away... unfortunately.

*squeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeaaaallllllll!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!*
what wonderful news and WOW, those are some awesome numbers!!!!!!!!! SmileSmileSmile
i'm soooo excited & happy for you!!!!
please please please be sure to come back & let us know the results of your u/s!!

it's ridiculous that people don't offer as much support after you get pg, esp if you've had a long journey to get there.... i mean, isn't a pregnancy/child the whole goal of ttc? ... well, stay here.. hopefully you can get plenty of support & encouragement from all of the awesome ladies that are on the boards - i know i have!!! Smile

thank you so much for the encouragement. it's very comforting. i had no idea how much the support diminished.

the u/s went well. my RE is incredibly bright but lacks social skills so i have to ask questions to get full explanations. basically, i am definitely in a healthy early pregnancy. there was a yolk sack and a "hiding baby". it's not a blighted ovum and there weren't any signs of bleeding or a miscarriage. it was too early for a heartbeat so i made an appointment for for next friday.

i guess i just don't really have symptoms. i had some for a few days after the bfp, but that's really it. i suppose this is normal for me, but i've never been pregnant longer than six weeks...so, we'll see. ironically, the person who wants symptoms for security purposes doesn't have them.

thank you again for reading my posts.

If it makes you feel any better, I had horrible morning(all-day) sickness with the baby I lost in March. So no symptoms could be good.

Congratulations!!! Yahoo

Try not to worry about not having many symptoms. It's all in how "your" body responds to the hcg in your system. Like Margaret said, you can have lots of symptoms and it not mean a healthy pregnancy, so likewise the opposite can also be true. Best wishes for a happy & healthy pregnancy! And you are welcome to come to the Trying to Conceive After a Loss board and post on our CTC thread, we have those who are pg after a loss post there when they need support. :bigarmhug:

Maybe this will help you feel better about symptoms. With all three of mine I didn't have any symptoms at all until after 6 weeks. Around weeks 7-8 was when I started some nausea. I didn't even really have sore bbs until that piont and they weren't really that sore! I used to obsess all the time that my symptoms couldn't possibly be enough for a healthy pg. But I have 3 beautiful kiddos that say differently.

Each woman is different. I know you read a lot about the symptom complaints on these boards. But most women don't post when they feel great so keep that in mind.

I hope your pg is a happy healthy easy time for you.

GL - I'll check back and see how you're doing!
