Hey I am in the same boat. I
Hey I am in the same boat. I got the exact same words. Between 8 to 10 weeks. I have to wait till august 5th :( Can I climb stairs? Is it ok?
I completely understand where
I completely understand where your coming from too!!! I am a mother of a 13yrold, and my husband and I have been married two years (first child from a previous relationship). Two months after my husband and I were married, I suffered an ectopic pregnancy. Finally two years later we are lucky enough to be pregnant again. I am approx 5 weeks along, and doing the same things you are. I check the toilet paper all the time, and my boobs. I also go to the bathroom a lot more than I am suppose to to make sure that everything is alright. My first hcg level was 266, and two days later my second one was 679. I am now waiting for my third hcg results. Good Luck to you and your family, and you definitely do not have OCD. Perfectly normal behavior. LOL!!!!! For a pregnant woman!!!!
I am 8w3d and had spotting on
I am 8w3d and had spotting on and off for the past 6weeks. I passed a few clots and it has really scared me. This being my fourth baby and not having anything like it with any of my other pregnancy's. I went and had an ultrasound yesterday and was relieved to see a little jelly bean with a perfect heart beat. I hope that you are just having unexplained spotting and everything will all be ok for you! Best of luck, Tracie
LOL!!! I am a first time
LOL!!! I am a first time pregnant woman, and I was doing the same, checking toilet paper, feeling my breasts for soreness. I had my ultra sound today, and all is well!!! Praise God, I am so excited!
Phew! I'm not the only one!
Phew! I'm not the only one! I've had heartburn for 3 1/2 weeks straight, and it's randomly subsided. I was wondering if it was a constant, or if it were normal to have "good" days.
I am experiencing the exact
I am experiencing the exact same thing and also freaking out!
If you haven't both been
If you haven't both been checked out for fertility issues I would start there. My hubby has a varicocele that was surgically corrected a couple of years ago. We were starting off at a disadvantage. I did the whole temperature thing and ovulation sticks, but that was as far as I took it and honestly after a year of that I was losing my mind. We made the decision at Christmas that if we weren't pregnant after one year of my husband starting a new job we would adopt. Essentially, we let it all go. I tested positive on 3/17 and was absolutely shocked. I think we finally got rid of the stress of life at just the right moment. Good luck to you!

On a mission
The pain in my joints is becoming rather frustrating. This may be my least favorite symptom so far - as I got over nausea (for the most part) and constipation (again for the most part). Being hyperflexible to begin with I know when my body needs strength work and cardio. Being pregnant and having an increase of hormones that increase flexibility and joint pain has been quite a wake-up call. Actually it's been more of a nightmare. My body aches most of the time. My back, hips and metatarsals slip and pop multiple times a day.

The emotional rollercoaster
Everything is normal at least so far in terms of blood work. The only number I know is my beta hcg and it's really good. So, that's one less thing to worry about today. I've decided after much crying and sobbing that pregnancy is going to be the most difficult roller coaster of my life. It is absolutely terrifying and is leading me to OCD. You know, where you check the toilet paper every time you go. Or feeling your breasts to make sure they are still a little sore. If it weren't me I would find it comical!

8 week scare
Yesterday was our RN intake appointment. Lots of counseling, handouts, labwork, etc. We made it through in one piece and I received the best news possible - I'm allowed to eat turkey sandwichs! I have been building the perfect one in my head for the last month and yesterday I finally got to eat it. It was a dream come true. :) At the appointment we were talking about symptoms and how I was feeling and if there were any signs of trouble. Nope, things are good. Most days I can eat okay, constipation seems to be coming under control, mild cramping but no spotting...until afternoon.

Revolving symptoms
Last week morning sickness hit and I spent the weekend laying on the couch watching TV. I consumed roughly 500 calories on Saturday and another 3-400 on Sunday. I was desparate. And then all of a sudden, dinner on Sunday I feasted on 4 slices of pizza. And I didn't stop eating until today (Wednesday). Today I'm feeling a little off. My oatmeal didn't taste quite right. And my boobs are not as tender. So, now I'm freaking out that my sypmtoms come and go and that something is wrong. What a roller coaster ride this has been so far. Hang in there little blueberry!

Welcome symptoms
Well hello there pregnancy symptoms. I have a little timid with this whole pregnancy thing since I wasn't feeling queasy and I didn't have that 'tell-tale' sign ofsore boobs. I spoke too soon. Today I am 6 weeks and that appears to be the magic number. My morning decaf mocha, disgusting and revolting. My morning yogurt snack, repulsive. I accidentally hit myself in the boob and let out a yelp that startled the dog. Last night all I wanted was meatloaf; today just the thought of it makes me crave a saltine.

This thing you call sleep
Sleep has been a little fitful the last few nights. I've been told this trend will continue for the next few years. Beautiful. Turns out I really like my sleep. Who would have imagined?! As I sit thinking during the day about how sleepy I am I can't help but think - hey I'm constructing a head and some organs I should get to take a nap! And my mind starts to create plans as to how to accomplish this without anyone catching on. 1-Sick days? No that won't work, I'll need all of those. Besides, I'm not sick just pooped.

My first aversion...a sad tale
I peed on another stick tonight...yup, still pregnant! 5 weeks and the poppy seed is now a sesame seed. Over the last couple of days I've been a little stopped up. Not such a pleasant picture, but it is what it is. And one of the things that causes problems. Dairy. This spells trouble and despair. I love dairy. I drink more milk than anyone I've ever met. It is my beverage of choice. In an attempt to make myself feel better about this wicked turn of events I had a piece of chocolate. Gag-o-rama. Chocolate AND milk?! Seriously?! There goes my mocha and hot chocolate.

Keep it to yourself lady
We spent a few hours at the bookstore this afternoon. Reading books for expectant fathers and all sorts of terrifying things for mommies. The thought of some of those 'symptoms' is kind of unnerving. And then of course, here I sit panicking that if I don't have that this must all be an illusion. I don't know when I will really start to believe all of it and be confident. I know that I'm pregnant; I just wouldn't mind 15 medical professionals telling me that as well! Back to the bookstore.
