Hi ladies,

good luck and safe delivery to all those on the home stretch!

i got back my second beta yesterday and it went up from 85 to 594...the nurse said that was a very good sign...my fingers and toes continue to be crossed.

i dont have my first u/s until the 9th week which seems a really long way off...i'm really anxious to know that everything is ok. I had a bit of a scare this morning with an unusual discharge but i called my doctor and they said not to worry... easier said than done, i can assure you.

ronda...i know exactly what you mean...my pants are already tight at the waist as well... i am thinking of getting maternity pants just for the comfort...

Jamie...sounds like we're around the same stage of preganancy...i'm just about 6weeks so welcome!

JasJulesMom...my doctor told me absolutely no flying for the first trimester but that's because of a family history with dvt...if you are concerned, check with your doctor to be sure...

Take care,
Reshma

Congratulations on the good beta numbers! The 9th week does sound like a long time to wait but you will make it.

How is everyone else doing?

 

JENNY22074 - March 24

That is a great day I think since he will be all day there that is great that he can be checking you all the time. I really wish you the best and take my advise. Praying for you and that little one.
Have faith everything will be ok and soon you will be holding your little one. How fun :)

rb you can take sudafed. also a home remedy for runny nose and sneezing is 1tbs vinegar and 1tbs lemon mixed it does work

 

JulieC - March 31

My doctor told me that Claritan is fine to use. Of course, you might want to check with your doc. But mine said that it was fine and so was sudafed.

 

RB - March 31

thanks Beth...am i supposed to drink that vinegar and lemon mixture or inhale it???
