February 2014 Due Date Buddies


#1

So I know I am starting this a little soon. But I just got my first beta back and it is 223. I am so shocked! I don’t have any words right now.


#2

Ahhhhh, congrats! We cycled a few times together and I’m so excited to see that you got your BFP. Best wishes!


#3

Hi Rach, congrats again!! Not sure if I will be in this board or the January one. Think my DD will be 2 Feb but I don’t know for sure, hoping to get in an u/s this week.


#4

What day you going in for your u/s Feb 2 is Feb so welcome to the feb due dates :slight_smile:

Due 10th Feb

Hi, I just got a :bfp: in a HPT yesterday, i have done 4 tests in the last 2 days and all have been faintly positive, the one this morning was slightly darker.
This will be my 5th child as I have 3 born via IVF and one surprise baby already. My eldest just turned 4 last week and my youngest is 6 months. I have B/G twins as well. I am very shocked and nervous, and haven’t even told my husband yet. (I know I will have to tell him soon)
I am looking forward to spending my pregnancy journey with you xx:thankyou: :thankyou:

Welcome and congrats!! What’s your ratio of boys to girls?? I have a 16 month old girl and part of me is hopng for a boy so I could have one of each but then another part of me would like a girl so I could reuse all the clothes and toys, etc. Were you breastfeeding when you conceived?

Thanks Rach007, my last pregancy with my daughter my DD was 5 Feb, but I ended up giving birth 31 Jan, I definitely wouldn’t mind going a lil early this pregnancy but I just don’t want them to have the same birthday!

I will be calling my OB today to set one up. I did all my treatments with my OB -and she was on vacation all last week so today she will find out that it worked. Hoping to go in thursday or friday because I will be 5w5/6days and will hopfully see a heartbeat too.


#8

I found you

Hi girls,
I’m terrible at this forum thing so it took me awhile to find the thread but I found you finally! My due date should be the 7th of Feb I believe. First scan isn’t til the 24th. Holding off to tell everyone until after the scan (except my sister-in-law who is one of my bff’s who we told today).
Okay, another beginner question, how do I create one of those signature things with all my details in it?

:welcome: and you did find us! Why are they waiting so long to do the first scan? Mine will be the 13th or the 14th of June. I am so excited!


#12

Hey guys, so a little update, talked to my Dr today and she wants me to do another beta on Friday to make sure the levels are above 1500 and then an ultrasound right after! I will be about 5w6d so I am hoping I get to see something and that it will ease my anxiety instead of adding to it.

Newgirl, I went to UserCP at the top, that will take you to a page where you can edit your signature. Let me know if you are having problems with it.

That is great hun! Cant wait to know where your beta is :slight_smile:

I spoke with one of my nurses today and she is like ok blood work on Wednesday and then u/s on June 14th so excited :slight_smile:


#14

Wow Bella, you are lucky you get to have a scan so early. Excited to hear your results. With IUI clients they usually do a seven week scan at my specialist, so its pretty standard for them. I think they do IVF clients sooner. I could have done scheduled it closer to the 20th so part of it is my own fault. My doc is about 3 hrs away and when we go down we stay overnight. We happen to have an holiday apartment close to the doctor but its only available from the 24th so I asked if we could push it to that day. I could have probably pushed it earlier but as long as I feel like nothing is going wrong I’m okay with waiting. And I’m hoping the longer I wait, the more we’ll know. I think the average first scan here is 8 weeks so I’m still ahead of the game (btw, I’m in South Africa).


#15

NewGirl! I’m married to a lovely wonderful South African! I had my MIL ask her ob/gyn if it was okay to drink rooibos during pregnancy since my own didn’t know. Now I’m sitting here with my morning mug of rooibos (specifically, rooibos chai), happily sipping away for the first time in months!

SA is great for fertility treatments, right?
Where in SA are you?

(And yes, I totally started lurking here - because so many people I’m excited to see!)

Hi Bella, I already have 3 boys and a girl, so I am hoping for another girl. And yeah I was breastfeeding when I conceived. Our fertility docs told us we had less than 5% chance of naturally conceiving, but Man, we have proved him wrong!!

I told hubby this morning, and he is worried about me, but excited at the same time :slight_smile: I ended up just blurting it out!!


#19

Wow that is awesome that you are in South Africa. How long have you lived there? Are you from there?


#20

Nice :slight_smile: that is too funny that you just blurted it out :slight_smile:
