    Calling all the Pregnant PS''ers

    MP, my daughter is doing well, thanks for asking! I can't believe she'll already be 4 months old next week. I did end up failing the 3-hr test (the 1-hr and the 2-he blood draws), even though I failed the 1-hr test by 4 points. Mine was completely controlled through diet changes, mainly just...

    Calling all the Pregnant PS''ers

    MP, just wanted to chime in here. The 1-hr drink is a 50g sugar/carb load, while the 3-hr drink is a 100g sugar/carb load. They are both the same amount of liquid though (10oz I think?). There's also a 2-hr drink that's a 75g sugar/carb load that you repeat at your 6w postpartum visit if you do...

    Woohoo MP, congrats mama!!! I'm sorry you can't be more excited due to your history, but I'm really excited for you. These are the best betas you've ever had, including the ones for Ev, so this is absolutely a good sign! I know you're worried about the higher risks of multiples, but I think...

    Re: The Official TTC Thread! Tourmaline, the same exact thing happened to me the cycle I got pregnant with a girl. I usually O around CD14-15, so I start OPKs on CD10. My temp randomly shot up on CD11 and I thought it was too late. But apparently my body changed its mind and O'ed later. I still...

    MP, seeing a gestational sac and yolk sac at 5w+6d is awesome! The same thing happened to me at my 6w ultrasound. My OB had me come in 2 weeks later, and there was a strong HB by then and everything looked normal. Hope you can relax a bit when you get your blood results back, but I have a really...

    MP, yay for a great beta! Laila is right that a doubling time of less than 40 hours is awesome, and I love her idea about why your 2nd beta might have been not quite double the 1st one. Just think, only 4 more days (less in reality) and you should be able to see something on an ultrasound. Did...

    MP, so sorry your 2nd beta wasn't as high as you expected. Did you get your blood drawn at the same time or later in the day than the 1st beta? Fingers crossed that your next beta shows an appropriate jump! Like Laila said, this early time is just so stressful. Hope you can enjoy your birthday...

    MP, yay for your positive beta! That's a great one for 13dpo. Mine started at 29 this time, and I think I'm one of those low HCG people too, because A started off low too. Are you getting another one on Saturday? Continued sticky dust and prayers for you that everything goes smoothly from here...

    MP, my insurance covered most of the Counsyl test, but when I got the actual bill from Counsyl, they had given me a $0.79 "discount" to make it exactly $99. It seems like they're really pushing for this test, so they want to make it affordable for most people. Good luck with whatever you decide...

    "Just Barely" Pregnant PS''ers

    Re: AMC and SMC, going in for your first ultrasound at 7w and 8w is probably better, since you should be able to see a heartbeat by then. I know we all love early monitoring and getting as much info as possible, but when I went in for my first scan at 6w+1d, there was only a gestational sac...

    Re: The Official TTC Thread! AMC, sounds like your cycle timing will work out well with your RE appt. It'll be interesting to hear what your RE says about your test results. LC, huge hugs mama! You are most definitely allowed to have a bad day, and you will be pregnant again! I'm so terribly...

    Re: The Official TTC Thread! AMC, sorry about the RE appt reschedule and the early AF. Did your RE ever explain all your test results to you, or is that what this next appt is for? MP, hoping you magically won't need your injectable cycle ;) but glad you have that plan in place. Fingers...

    PS Mommy Thread-Newborn to 12 months!

    Hey Bella, just popping in to say that I read somewhere that you're not supposed to use both the latch and seat belt installs together. Only one or the other. Something about using both ends up making it too tight so theres no room for slack in case of an accident, which could cause more harm...

    Re: The Official TTC Thread! AMC, hope your temp stays up the next few days so you can confirm O! It's probably valid for you to discard your CD16 temp if you really did take it later than usual. I notice FF uses an open circle if you put in a time that's an hour or more later than your usual...

    Re: The Official TTC Thread! AMC, it looks like we are having the same weird cycle together. My temp hasn't gone up, and my OPKs faded out, so I have no idea where I am in my cycle now. I never did get a real positive OPK, but it was a medium dark on the day I got EWCM, so I'm really confused...

    Re: The Official TTC Thread! AMC, I wonder if your temps are jumping around due to the time change, like I think mine are. Are you going to take another OPK tonight? Maybe you Oed overnight so you didn't feel any O pains, or maybe you just didn't get a good night's sleep? Either way, you...
