@fuzzypeaches: Ugh, I'm so sorry, mama. Fingers crossed for a quick resolution.
@breakouttheicecream: Thanks, I hope it's just spotting, too. I'm only 3+6, so could be implantation if it just hung around in my uterus for a while, but I don't want to mess around. Otherwise I think I'm where I'm supposed to be--really sore boobs, sensitive to smells and tastes, mild cramping, mild headache. It's just so stressful.
@Chuckles: Try and stay positive. You won't feel everything all the time. I'll look out for your results tomorrow.
Just got off the phone with my doctor's office. Not starting bloodwork until Friday (4 weeks) tentative ultrasound scheduled for 4/5. And my spotting has tailed off, so fingers crossed that doesn't come back.

@karenbme: 🤞 great news!
My friend that just hit 14 weeks of varying shades of spotting at 4-5.5 weeks, and all is well.

@yellowbeach: Shoot. Sorry. Hope your PGS testing comes back fantastic (and quickly!).
@fuzzypeaches: Dang. Sorry. Hope it resolves quickly. Hugs.
@Chuckles: It's normal for symptoms to come and go! I bet your US will bring great news!
@karenbme: Great news! I can see why you would be worried (and I would be too, even though I objectively know that spotting like you described is really common in healthy pregnancies) and I'm glad you have a US date for peace of mind!
8 DPO here and no tweaking needed! But based on @yellowbeach ‘s OSOM, I’m only tentatively excited. FRER was negative, but glad I at least have a FRER “baseline”, since they’ve been so whacky
@bees_knees: Yay!! This board needed some good news today! Tentatively excited for you, too.
@Sams Mom: @bees_knees: Thanks! and I know it could be normal, but it’s just so scary...
@karenbme: I totally understand, it is scary! Especially with your history. I think your early positive and your line progression are GREAT signs though!
So I asked my mom for my shot record for my new job to avoid all the jabs possible. She laughed at me 🤦♀️ *disclaimer, I am 30, so didn't expect to need it after college*
Then called the health department to get my records, and they couldn't find it. The lady asked if I was sure that was my last name at the time... Ummmmm yeah, it's my maiden name... That is on my birth certificate.. and it's the name I had for 26 years.
She finally called back, and I guess mine and my older sister's was jammed into our little sister's file. 🤦♀️ Then it took forever to get a copy of my proof of Tdap from my last pregnancy.
But hopefully all I'll need next week now is a flu shot
@Sams Mom: That’s a crazy story. Glad you got them in the end, but 🤦♀️

Ugh vent time. Worked a 12 hour shift after getting my crappy beta drawn. Picked DD up from daycare. Came home and have to give DH IV fluids due to fever and crazy non-stop diarrhea. So I'm doing IVs in my bedroom while DD is screaming to watch Peppa Pig. At 8:40pm DD is fed, DH is hydrated and finally afebrile and I'm having red wine for my dinner. I'm spent.

@yellowbeach: that sounds like the worst day ever you deserve that wine for real! Are you working tomorrow too? Hopefully get a day to regroup soon
@yellowbeach: drink away, that sounds like a shit-tastic day
@fuzzypeaches: Off tomorrow but have a dentist appointment - I'll probably need a root canal or something

@yellowbeach: ...my condolences. Your day sounded awful, but going to the dentist sounds even worse. (My opinion may be swayed.)
@Sams Mom: Good to hear there was a way to get that information. I still have mine and I even know where the papers are! The school nurse gave us all the data collected when we finished high school, there's a record of all the vaccinations and also weight, height and eye sight info. I was so tiny when I went to first grade!
Have you heard how Kaohinani is doing? I miss her and hope she's feeling better.
@yellowbeach: Ick, that sounds like the worst day. I hope you enjoyed at least one glass of wine. Good luck at the dentist today.
@Sams Mom: Have you heard anything from Kaohinani? I also miss her, and hope she’s doing OK.
@paranundrum: @karenbme: nothing yet. I guess this one hit her pretty hard though (not that any migraine is fun).
There is no hope here right?
All of a sudden in the middle of the night I became hopeful it was just a slow starter but now I think it’s definitely not
@fuzzypeaches: you probably won't get a good read until tomorrow for sure, but it doesn't look good ☹️

I'm so anxious to get this ultrasound today. I realized that because I'm on estrogen and progesterone supplements, I can't place any weight in symptoms coming and going. And this morning I feel a little nauseous again. I teach in a middle school, and let me tell you - there are a lot of smells here.
@fuzzypeaches: Yeah, sorry. I wish it were something different, but it doesn't look good.
@Chuckles: ewwww middle school smells, I'm sorry. Between the BO, bathing in AXE, and everything in between.
@Sams Mom: @Chuckles: yah I know you are right ugh
@Chuckles: symptoms are so variable at the beginning. Honestly early pregnancy is designed to make women crazy. Nothing definitive to let you know what’s going on in there

Whew. Worse betas yesterday. I spent the night on the phone with my health insurance company trying to figure out which ERs are in-network in a city across the country (leaving tomorrow for work for a week). hCG increased by 30 in 48 hours, but is still around 800 and it's the end of week six. Definitely too low, and not a good pattern for growth.
There's not a lot to do at this point. I've asked the nurse for a few days off from betas during the trip (my arms are black and blue). If anything is still there when I get back, they'll do an early scan.
Still rooting for all of you ladies.
@Kaohinani, we're all worried about you. Hope you're feeling better.
@yellowbeach, I hope your dentist gives you a freaking prize from the kids' bin. Or better yet, a bottle of wine. That sounds like an awful day. Thinking of you.
@Chuckles: middle school smells are awful even when you’re not pregnant! Let us know how your ultrasound goes
@fuzzypeaches: crossing fingers for you!
@fuzzypeaches: Right now I agree with Sam's Mom and FuzzyPeaches, it's not looking great. You've still got a little time for it to pick up though.
@Chuckles: Good luck today!! I know how nerve wracking it can be, and I hope you get to see a healthy little bean. Also, I don't envy your middle school situation, those smells are serious...
@breakouttheicecream: I'm so sorry to see this... I hope your work trip (and the break from levels) is a good distraction for you. I'm so so sorry.
Question for the masses:
I'm packing for our weekend trip to Nashville, I will be 10-13 dpo for the trip.
Do I pack tests?
Go without, and live blissfully unaware of a potential pregnancy while having more than two drinks for the first time in years?
@Sams Mom: leave them! Eat drink and be merry!
@bees_knees: @Sams Mom: Seconded!
@Sams Mom: @paranundrum: @bees_knees: Agreed! Distract yourself, come home and test knowing that you'll know one way or the other!
@SamsMom: I agree - leave 'em behind!
AFM, good news at the dentist at least, no cavities and nothing to shell out a bunch of cash for. On a side note bc I thought this was sweet, they have a new hygienist who was trying to get to know me a little better and was digging through my paper chart. She pulled out DD's birth announcement! I sent the office one when she was born and I guess they saved it. Thought that was a nice touch. And flash forward, today I made her an appointment with them for her first visit. I guess they just have them sit in the chair, squirt water and get used to all of it. Now I can say "yes" to the dentist question when we see the pediatrician next week!
@bees_knees: @paranundrum: @karenbme: @yellowbeach: k, I'm almost packed and no pee sticks
@Sams Mom: Stay strong!
@karenbme: Thank you.
@chuckles: Good luck with the ultrasound! Let us know how it goes.
@yellowbeach: That's good news! Glad it went well.
@Sams mom: Have a great trip.
@breakouttheicecream: so sorry to hear this. I know how it feels to be a pincushion. I'm sure it will be good to take some time off from being jabbed.
