• meliss – It took us 4 years to conceive! I went to my OBGYN and we started down the path of infertility tests, etc. There are SOO many things that they can test, do, etc that you should not lose hope yet! An HSG procedure did the trick for me! They inject dye into your uterus and watch it go out the fallopian tubes on an xray which looks for…[Read more]

    Im almost 26 weeks pregnant and have never noticed any change in the size of my breasts. No tenderness or soreness either. At most, maybe my nipples are a little more sensitive but that’s about it. Im concerned they’re ‘broken’ and I will not be able to breastfeed. I always hear about how big everyone’s BBs got after becoming pregnant and I…[Read more]

  • Nikki Lee – I’m currently 20weeks pregnant. I got pregnant probably about 2 months after my m/c. I never had AF in between so my first though after the BFP was I still had hcg in my system. Because I never followed up with my Dr like I was supposed to. I just didn’t want to deal with it. Well so far things are awesome!! Its the farthest Ive…[Read more]

    aussie, unfortunately I cant say that the worrying ends heh. Im almost 28 weeks and I still worry about every little thing. ANd yes, the symptoms come and go. I didnt have much m/s this time, but I also found that my HCG stayed on the low end of the scale the whole time so that kept the symptoms away I think! Ive felt great the whole 2nd…[Read more]

    Hey guys, glad to see this forum is picking up a bit. Just thought Id pop in and express how excited I am that our LO will be here in less than 3 weeks! All the worrying finally behind me but I must admit I still worry a bit that something will happen before he’s born. Such is the curse of being pregnant after having losses. Hope everyone is well.

    So weird, Ive been on this site a long time and just found this forum. I lost my first at 20 weeks, went in for a normal appointment and they found the placenta had swollen up and there was hardly any fluid. They had no idea why, as up till then everything had been perfect. Tried to do an amnio to check for chromosome problems but couldnt get…[Read more]

    It sounds like you failed the 1 hour, and you will have to do the 3 hour test now. Though Im surprised they didnt tell you this when they called.

    Thanks Bri..Im really hoping to be able to breastfeed at least for the first few months. 🙂

  • Shellie77 replied to the topic in the forum Babies Forum 3 years, 4 months ago

    As far as everyone is talking about the change in attitude after a loss. I’m experiencing the same thing even though I’m pregnant now. I lost my first at 20 weeks, and my second at 6 weeks. Now no one really says anything about me being pregnant. They kind of ignore it as if this one is doomed too.

    TR-Baby – Im 31 but I saw your comment and had to post. I had my NT scan at 13weeks, and I was told that was pretty much the last day to do it. We tried at 12weeks but he wouldnt cooperate. Measurement came up 1.8mm and I was told it was great. She said if A+ was her best grade, she’d give me an A. The blood test will also add/decrease your…[Read more]

    To the people talking about the HSG procedure. We didnt have luck for about 4 years trying to get pregnant. After the clomid didn’t seem to work, my Dr wanted to try the HSG. They didn’t find any blockages, but I got pregnant 3 months after the procedure!! Good luck!

    EM – I remember when we first bought our house and we painted the bedroom. First room I ever painted non white in my life. I bought some cheaper paint and did a red brick color in semi-gloss(in a bedroom! lol) over white paint. We put seriously 5 coats on it and couldnt figure out why it was so splotchy! Then I learned its not so easy to go…[Read more]

    tiffy – because it can vary so much. This current pregnancy, at 10weeks I had bleeding and went to the ER, my HCG was 39,000 and I thought for sure I was miscarrying. It was at the very low end of the range, but here I am, at 31weeks now!

  • Shellie77 replied to the topic in the forum Babies Forum 3 years, 4 months ago

    nikki, I(well, my husband of course lol) went through the sperm analysis. He said it was weird, but not a big deal. We tried clomid because my periods are irregular, even though my hormones were all checking out. After that we tried a hysterosalpingogram. Its a big long fancy word for a fancy xray. They inject dye into your uterus, through…[Read more]

    Your all’s MIL’s sound like my mother! 🙂 My mom has used my credit card to buy Christmas presents once, and never paid it back. I had bad credit for a while because of that. She abuses the ‘system’ and gets benefits she really doesn’t need. She has a beautiful house, HUGE RV, brand new car, and gets government assistance and food stamps.…[Read more]

    That yellow stuff is bile..awful awful tasting bile. Its just the stuff thats in your stomach to help digest fats. It comes from your liver/gall bladder. If you have nothing in your stomach, that’s what you get to throw up..fun! hehe Its normal, dont worry.

    cpalmer – Hey there, I saw your comment son the summary and had to post. Hopefully you are definitely seeing something! When I first tested, I almost threw out the test, but then I looked at it again, and you could just BARELY BARELY see something. I did it again the next day in the am, and the same thing, so I went and got a digital and it…[Read more]

    I did..that show is my guilty pleasure. The show started out innocent enough, and I love those kids. But now the show is obviously tearing their family apart, and the kids will be the ones hurt. I think they need to stop doing the show and repair their family.

    redheaded – Yeah I had a genetic panel after I lost my pregnancy at 20 weeks. They found I have MTHFR. She said it would cost 3k out of pocket, but my insurance covered it. Apparently its supposed to be for multiple losses, but I only had the one..Im thinking my Dr office coded it as such so it would be covered. Im pregnant again now and…[Read more]
