Spring/Summer 2012 Baby Bumps!

I am back...

And Pregnant!


Yayyyy! I must admit that I am anxious and extremely nervous after the miscarriage in January.  I didn't want to spill the beans until after the first trimester but I have a question for you ladies. I know my due date would be beyond Summer 2012, but hey this group was here before so I figured what the heck!


I haven't seen the doctor yet and if my calculations are correct, today I am 6 weeks exactly...but here is the story and question.  After the miscarriage we were to wait three cycles before trying again.  We were good for 2 of the 3.  I got a cycle in Feb, March and April, however, my cycle in April was a few days late as well as I began at like 9 or 10:00 pm which I always start in the am or early afternoon.  Normal cycle for the most part.  Well, come the end of April I just felt different, particulary really tired. So two days before my missed period I took a test and it came back positive.


Now it maybe because I am extra cautious and anxious, but I feel like I could be further along than 6 weeks...what your thoughts? It is driving me crazy! I know it shouldn't because I am excited either way, but I just feel like I am further along. 


Any thoughts on this? Anyone experienced this.

YAY!! Of course you are always welcome here! That cycle in April doesn't sound like it was a real cycle, but it is hard to tell. I guess just make the doc appt to be sure. Congrats!

Congrats!!!  I'm so glad to hear your news :)  It does sound like your April cycle was off a bit but I don't know if you can tell how far along you are until you see the doctor.  Even then, they'll probably calculate your due date from your LMP anyway, until they do the first ultrasound.  That's how my doctor does it anyway. 


Congrats again!!

Congratulations!!! :) 


I agree with Veronika, they will just estimate your due date from your LMP until you have an ultrasound.  If the ultrasound shows that you may be further along, then they will likely change your due date.  So excited for you and sending sticky baby dust to you!

Congratulations!
My FSIL miscarried at the very end of last year and they were told to wait 2 cycles before trying again, she is now pregnant and due September 3rd. She couldn't work out what had happened, but when they went for their date scan she is a month ahead of where she expected to be.
The only explanation the doctor could give is that she possibly was pregnant with twins and miscarried one - I didn't know this was possible but then again I'm not a doctor!!

A friend of my ex went into hospital (this is about 10 years ago though) with what she thought was appendicitis, and came out of hospital with a baby girl!! She had periods through her entire pregnancy, although lighter than normal, and she thought she was starting menopause because she was in her 40's!!

Anything is possible, but your scan will tell you for sure - how exciting!!

My 1st doctors appt is scheduled for the 31st of the month but I want to go earlier sooo bad. I will be 8 weeks according to my LMP. Do you think I should go sooner?

Have you called your Dr and explained what you told us? If so, what did they say?

The first trimester is the hardest one as far as I'm concerned - the waiting, the keeping the news from friends and family...it's the worst!


My doctor usually doesn't schedule appointments for earlier than 8 weeks because with the technology she has in her office there's not much they can see of the baby before then.  However since you did have a miscarriage recently it's possible your doctor may let you come in earlier - I think it's worth a call to check.  At the absolute worst, it's only 2 weeks away.  I know it will feel like forever - I was going crazy those first few weeks and it must be even harder for you now.  But hang in there girl - we're here for you in the meantime!

I had not explained anything other than the miscarriage when I schedule my May 31st appt.  I did go ahead and call today and they stated everything that has been stated on the thread and told me it was up to me if I wanted to come earlier but did not feel I needed to. So I am going to torture myself and wait the two weeks!


Thanks so much girls! I will be sure to keep you posted on my 1st appointment!
