Thanks for updating here -- it sounds like a scary situation, but also sounds like it's going really well. Tough little girl, good for her to be already on room air, and eating some milk. Hang in there, and good luck with everything -- can't wait for you to watch her grow.View Thread
We had our anatomy scan on Wednesday, and the doctor said everything checked out and looked good. And...it's a girl!!
Deep down, I'm incredibly excited about my baby girl. But up front, the infertile in me is still having trouble accepting this and letting myself celebrate. I can tell that I still have my guard up, and I'm still worried about something going wrong. Will I ever relax and just enjoy being pregnant? Have any of you, or do you feel the same way?
On the one hand, I feel like it would be irresponsible to get too excited too early, and I know from experience how to protect myself in case of bad news. But on the other hand, I feel guilty not celebrating this baby, not immediately letting her know how excited I truly am. I think I'm just still scared of admitting to myself how much I want this.
Anyway, pink team it is, couldn't be happier!View Thread
Hi Danielle, Congratulations! I don't know how you made it to 33 weeks before showing -- I'm starting to show now at 18. Keep us posted on your u/s and the date for your c-section. After such a long wait, I know you are ready!View Thread
It's really hard to read much into HCG levels, but yours sound good to me. Have you looked at this website: http://www.betabase.info It has a lot of information about rising beta levels, at each dpo.
Your beta numbers are rising, which is a good sign, so there's nothing for you to do but wait until Friday! I know it's hard. For me, my first pg ended in m/c even though my beta numbers looked great. So it's just really hard to tell this early -- try to be patient, and pamper yourself. Congrats, you're pg!View Thread
Congratulations and welcome! It is great news that you were able to get here after waiting so long. I also experienced an early m/c so I know a little about that. Good luck at your appt tomorrow and report back to us!View Thread
