Pregnant!

Tuesday, July 06, 2010

I've known for a couple of months now, and it just doesn't seem real. After being told my tubes were blocked, and I'd probably have to have IVF, to be honest, I was shocked. I don't know what made me decide to test the night that I did, but I'm glad I listened to that little voice inside my head. So, now that I'm pregnant, I have a whole new set of worries. I was getting an ultrasound every two weeks. Now I'm being sent back to my ob/gyn, and I probably won't have another one for months, so I'll be freaking out, worrying constantly, until I see that everything is ok. Nobody has said anything about amniocentesis, either, so is that a non-issue at this stage (between 10-11 weeks), or is it still too early to test? The person doing my ultrasounds said everything looked perfect, so does that mean no amnio is needed? I'm FREAKING out. I just hope everything goes ok for the next 7 months. I don't want to be neurotic!

    I'm so excited for you. :)

Just found out from the RE today that we get to do our first IUI in about 3 weeks. Hurray!

    Everything is going well. Except for my butt getting bigger and bigger. I'm trying to eat better, but it's difficult when I'm literally hungry ALL THE TIME. I feel really gross and bloated. Starting back to the gym next Monday. I really just wanted to get out of the first trimester before I started exercising.

    You can always call a perinatal office and ask them if they think you should come in. Just a phone call for a little peace of mind. :)

    No, I don't want the amnio. We just had a tough time getting pregnant, and I don't want any unpleasant surprises. However, I'm thinking that if there was something to worry about, the RE would have said something about an amnio, which he didn't.

I'm not sure if I'm considered high risk, now, or not. I know they were worried about it being tubal, since I was told my tubes were blocked, but that's obviously not the case. My only real risk factors are my age (34) and my weight (which we won't be discussing here, lol). Aside from that, my health is perfect. My blood sugar is about 93, and my blood pressure is 120/70. I was just under the assumption that they did an amnio for anyone over a certain age.

    Congrats! Have you seen a perinatal doctor since you are high risk? A "perinate" would be watching those risks with you, and probably relieve a lot of stress! [My RE had me see one right away, since I'm almost 40, and I only just had my HSG today.]

I'm so happy for you!!!

    Hopefully you will have no problems. Congratulations. I was high risk with both of my kids and was very lucky to go full term and both be healthy. Just follow your doctor orders, watch your salt intakes and walk if you can to help keep a healthy weight. Do you have a reason for wanting the amniocentesis? Are you looking for a problem that runs in the family or because of a medical condition you have? That is about the only time they do them if your insurance is going to pay for it.
Once again good luck and blessing on you and your family. emoticon

    Congratulations! It looks like the right time has come for you. Just remember to take it one step at a time. Sometimes it is easier to look at the small picture instead of the big overwhelming picture.

    Well first off congratulations. I hope everything goes smoothly for you. I'm not a doctor so I know nothing about amniocentesis and how early they can detect but call your ob/gyn and tell them your concerns, they will be able to tell you and then you can stop stressing. I wish you a safe and stress-free pregnancy :)
