Just had a call from my DR telling me everything is fine and to book for an early scan in 2 weeks - I CAN'T WAIT THAT LONG!!!!!!
So my HCG levels at 4 weeks were 282 and at 4 weeks 4 days were 1011, he is pleased with that I am praying every day that everything goes well FX
How is everyone feeling??

Had a bit of a cry this morning as i'm worried something will go wrong,I'm hoing and praying it won't i love this little beanie so much already .
Charlieb5 thank you so much for your advice xx

Alowicious - that's wonderful news hun - I am so happy for you. It must be wonderful to have the reassurance of your increasing HcG levels.
Sarah - I know this might sound awful but I am so glad that you have said you had a little cry because you're so worried. I alternate between feeling elated that I am pregnant at last and also feeling positive that this pregnancy feels different from the last one (where I MCd at 4 weeks 5 days) and then feeling terrified that something is going to go wrong again. Like you, I feel this incredible sense of love already for this tiny weeny embryo and I feel so protective over it. I just don't want anything to happen to it. I am trying to rest as much as poss but this is difficult over Christmas and I have to go back to work tomorrow.
I know what my GP will say - that there is no point in taking any bloods and doing HcG levels as what will be will be, and she can't prevent a MC anyway if it is going to happen, so as nice as she is, there is no point going to talk to her.
Can anyone offer me and Sarah any words of comfort to help us stop worrying so much?

I am exactly the same, one minute I am on a high, waking up with a smile on my face thinking wow! and the next minute I am sh*tting myself thinking what if the worst happens. You can't do anything to help apart from rest occasionally because at the end of the day what will be will be and we just all have to keep our fingers crossed that these little embies stick and are healthy.
I live in Dubai at the moment by the way and everything is done through private medical treatment here so thats the only reason I have had hcg tests and will be having an early scan - so my Dr can make more money!
I feel better today, am 5 weeks exactly now no nausea as yet today, feeling on a natural high and can't believe my body is growing a little human being

How is everyone feeling?
I have started to fel a bit sick in the evenings and also first thing in the morning,and am not very hungrey.
Have been weeing alot to and have had very sore boobs.
Also feel like i want to cry at stupid things
Is anyone else feeling like this?
Also noticed my stomache is huge by the end of the day.
I am loving it all though because it means my little beanie must be growing,
Not sure why but i am worried something will go wrong,think it may be because we have waited a long time for this little beanie and with my son we didnt really have to try.
Hope you are all ok

please can I join you??? congratulations to everyone and wishing you all a H&H 9 months!! I am due on 3rd September!! And am absolutely over the moon. it sounds like quite a few of you have been through a difficult time and I am really sorry to hear that! So I am sending lots of sticky glue to us all and lots of positive thoughts saying that mind my mind has been completely wandering!! I just keep thinking...what if it's gone today? or just not believing it's happened at all!! But 6 BFP's are surely quite conclusive???!!! I think everyones right, what will be will be and we just have to stay positive, keep healthy and hope!!
my symptoms are...some feeling sick (especially if hungry) exhausted yesterday but a bit better today - even though I can't sleep past 6am at the moment (which I cried about in bed this morning...hormones?!?!), lower back aches (this was one of the things that prompted me to test!) and quite a lot of mild cramping and twinges. My boobs aren't bigger yet!!!! As a very small chested lady this is something I am looking forward to (ha ha) so just waiting for that
am looking forward to hearing about everyone's journeys - it's all just so exciting!!!

Welcome new September Mummies and congratulations again!
Symptoms so far for me =
huge sore boobs and my nipples are really irritating me today
Big bloated belly
Real spacey feeling like I am walking around with my heads in the clouds
No nausea today
Food aversion - still only like milk, bread and fruit but have been dreaming of prawns all day
Insomnia is back again and I woke at 3am today Loving all other symptoms though!!
Very teary - I got lost in a large cafe today and nearly threw a hissy fit
hugs x x x

It's really lovely to have some more September Mummies - welcome and congratulations again!
I'm still terribly anxious - I just can't help it despite telling myself that I stand a very good chance of carrying this all the way. I have ordered a pre-natal yoga video and am hoping that is going to help chill me out a bit.
My boobs are enormous (for me) and my nipples are tender and have also developed little red dots round them. I'm not feeling sick at all but some friends were telling me last night that their morning sickness didn't develop until 7-9 weeks for them.
I'm going to ask my GP for a 7 week scan given what happened last time. I just need that peace of mind and am not sure I can last until 12 weeks without going completely doolally. Will let you know what she says.
Anyway, Happy New Year to you all
Love Wheelie x

Wheelie I hope you are feeling ok and not too stressed, let me know if the yoga vid is any good!! Asking for an early scan sounds like a good idea!!
Sarah and Alowicious I totally know what you mean about the early waking and not getting back to sleep. 5am it was for me this am and it's not good!! Am quite enjoying the other symptoms though (even the sickness - it's not too bad yet!) because it makes it feel real-er!! Sarah, everything sounds like it's going well for you, but will send lots of positive thoughts to beanie (how cute is that nick name!?!) - positive thoughts and sticking glue to all!!
Got my positive confirmation from the GP this morning - I was so relieved and happy!! so just waiting for midwife appointment. am very excited about getting that!! Have bought a book today and am gonna lie down now and have a read before tidying the house!
Hope everyone has a great new years eve, OMG, isn't 2010 going to be amazing
lots of love

Oh it is so nice to read your posts, girls. It makes me feel so much better. I had a real day of it yesterday - I went to the GP to ask for an early scan and she refused and trotted out the cliche "what will be will be".
I then had to have some blood tests for my thyroid and as usual my veins did a disappearing act. It took three goes with lots of syringe wiggling (sorry if tmi) and bearing in mind that I am already needle phobic (is it any wonder?!) this was fairly traumatic. As soon as I came out of there I saw my mate who is the pratice manager and I just burst into tears, blubbling that I was so scared that what happened last time might happen again....
She was so kind and just said I had to be a SLOB. Every time I start whizzing around trying to tidy the house, or every time that I get worked up about anything, think her of saying SLOB i.e. get back on the sofa and relax and stop caring about all the silly little things. But easier said that done when you live with a husband like mine and two Labradors!
I'm also very tired as I've been waking up really really early too - why are we all doing that?
Sorry if I am being a real downer on you guys at the mo - you all seem very rational and I promise I will snap out of this over anxious, slighty neurotic phase soon! I know I've got to get a grip but I don't know how at the mo....
Anyway, wishing you a very Happy New Year! Here's to our wonderful little September babies, please God!
