I'm OK...

Sunday, May 13, 2012

I have some really sweet Spark friends and I'm starting to feel guilty because I haven't eased anyone's mind that I'm OK. I am. It was emotionally draining, but physically it really wasn't that bad, and losing it at 5 weeks is nothing like losing it later when you have more of an emotional commitment and more physical complications. I'm really OK, going to wait a month and then try again.

    hi Susan, just logging into SP for the first time in a long time. I was catching up on my friends' blogs and read yours. I'm sorry to hear this but I"m glad you are ok. It's a tough experience I think no matter how far along you are, but you're right about 5 weeks being different from, say, 12 weeks.

Nice to "see" you again!! xo Liz

Doctor's Appointment

Friday, May 04, 2012

No offense for those whose advice to chill out is being blatantly disregarded here. :)

I just made an appointment to see the doctor on call at 5:20 this evening. I'm going to get a blood test to find out for sure one way or the other. I am so excited I'm kinda shaking. Yeah, emotional much???

PS - Any advice on questions to ask the doctor if the answer is positive? I already want to ask about the medications and over the counter stuff I take to see if it is safe, plus I want to ask about any diet and exercise precautions.

Check back in with me tonight for a DEFINITIVE ANSWER, if you're curious! :)

    AAHHHH!!!! I cant wait to hear how it went! Fingers crossed for you!!!

Oh and just wondering, have you been taking prenatal vitamins? Its best to start once you start TTC, that way they are in your system already when you get pregnant!

    good luck.
pretty much the only thing you can take while pregnant is tylenol. the doc probably won't have much to say cause there really isn't anything they can do at this point.
no sushi
no soft cheese
try to avoid high allergen foods like nuts
limit caffeine
and unless medical reason if your doc tells you to limit exercise get a new doc! (ok to do what you already do)
have you been to babyfit.com yet?

  When I got my positive results I asked for day care referrals! Ha!

seriously, if you have insurance you probably won't start your pre-natal care until 3 months but you will want to get a prescription for prenatal vitamins and make sure you are getting enough folic acid.

Good luck!

?!???!

Friday, May 04, 2012

My alarm doesn't go off until 6 A.M., but this morning I was out of bed before 5:30. It's day 36 of my cycle and I took the 2nd test that was in the box I'd bought (test #1 was done on day 32 with a negative result). I know I did the test correctly...I used the cup method which someone recommended to me and it was easier that way...and...hubby called from the bedroom, "Anything happening?" and I said, "I'm not sure." He said, "What do you mean, you're not sure?" and I said, "Come look." He looked, and saw a negative. I looked, and thought I distinctly saw a faint vertical line indicating a possible positive. I made him hold it up to the light (while never pointing the stick up!) and he admitted he could see the vertical line, but that it looked like it was not lit up. At that point I wished I could see what the test looked like before it was taken - can you see the little hints of the lines before they're activated? Or did a hint of a line mean a positive?!

Anyway, I'm feeling a bit ?!??! right now!

    Go buy a FRER (First REsponse). It is a little more expensive- but it is the most accurate. Take it tomorrow morning first thing (make sure it's ytour first trip to the bathroom). You will have your answer...

Good luck!

    From what I've heard and read, there is no such thing as a false positive (false neg's, all the time, but not false pos). You will only get the positive line if and when the preg hormones are detected in your pee, so you wouldn't see any line at all before... hmmm!!! I'm getting so nervous/excited and I feel like we are going through this journey with you!!! Are you going to take another test tomorrow??

Day 34

Wednesday, May 02, 2012

Am I? Am I not? I'm pretty proud of myself for not breaking down and taking another test. There were two tests in the box I bought and I'm making myself wait until Friday or Saturday! But it's hard to concentrate on anything else!
