Happy 2nd Trimester!

I hope everyone has made it out of the first trimester feeling well. I unfortunately am still miserably sick. I stopped being sick with my first at 14/15 weeks so, we're getting there! How is everyone else feeling?

Bethany, I'm so sorry to hear that! I'm glad you're seeking a second opinion since you're feeling doubtful. I wish you the very best!

I am 11 weeks now. The last 3 weeks have been full of tests and waiting.

The two ultrasonds done around week 8 and 9 showed a bub and a yolk sac, but no heartbeat. Bub was borderline size for a heartbeat, so had blood test for hcg levels. They were going up so, waited until over Christmas and NY holidays. Now everyone is back at work, so more blood tests this week and levels have dropped off but from what I have read, this happens normally after 8th to 10th week when the placenta takes over.

So without any followup U/S, GP prescribes a D&C and tells me it's for the best.

So, I've booked in to see an Ob/Gyn tomorrow to have a chat and get another U/S to see if there has been any growth since 2 weeks ago. Then I'll make more decisions from there.

I've had very light bleeding for about 2 weeks now, no pain anywhere ever. I havn't had any morning sickness, though I did with my 3 year old, but that doesn't mean too much. I feel quite rushed by the GP, and will be glad of a second opinion or two.

I'm wasting my life away waiting for test results and have to consiously snap out of it and play with my perfectly beautiful daughter. I wish I had never had that early scan and assume it must have been refered because I'm over 35, I can't find any other reason to be 'high risk' and need an early scan. So frustrated.

Glad your sickness is going away! It's awful, morning sickness. Blurgh!

Yay, it's the second trimester! I am still on Zofran, waiting to feel well, but I think it's coming... I feel better more of the day than before!
