Definitely! When will you get back the testing on it?

I don't know. I was going to email my OB and ask when the pathology report would be available.

Did they even tell you if it looked typical of an 8 week embryo?

No. I was too out of it to ask when I was in the hospital. I was more worried about my tube being saved. I was all drugged up going, don't cut my tube out lol.
I just emailed my OB. I hope they have some answers for me. Looking at the pictures, it kinda does look like an embryo. Maybe I'm just imagining things, but I see a head and a body.

IDK, I suck at reading imaging. (for the most part...now I can spot a follicle a mile away, lol)

LOL. I got to see my eggs in the ultrasound too. I'm kind of excited to be monitored for the next IUI.

Here's my ultrasound of Jace. I think I was about 9-10 weeks. Seems like close in size.

For those of you who have been pregnant and had a successful delivery, if your overweight to start out with, can you safely not gain anything as long as the baby is measuring ok?



I found this am WebMD, so if your overweight to begin with, does it just "even out"?



  • Baby: 8 pounds
  • Placenta: 2-3 pounds
  • Amniotic fluid: 2-3 pounds
  • Breast tissue: 2-3 pounds
  • Blood supply: 4 pounds
  • Stored fat for delivery and breastfeeding: 5-9 pounds
  • Larger uterus: 2-5 pounds
  • Total: 25-35 pounds

I was overweight when I was pregnant with Jace. I gained 23lbs total. Jace was 8lbs, 4 oz at birth. I have no idea how it all evened out. My OB was okay with my weight gain. I didn't gain anything until I was about 24 weeks. I was really good with my diet until about my third trimester... then I gave up and ate whatever I wanted.

I am trying to speak with this high risk doctor, that my RE is requiring I find because of issues with delivery (I will be a planned C-Section and not allowed to labor) He was trying to tell me that I would be gaining around 30-40 pounds.



I was shocked and told him, I wouldn't be surprised if I didn't gain anything considering how I eat already, and that I am already insulin resistant, why would I be encouraged with those factors to gain anything? I have lost around 50 pounds so far after getting on thyroid meds and TBH, I am back to eating how I was in highschool, where I was alot smaller.



Half of my calories are liquid (I cut orange juice with unsweetened tea and have atleast 3 glasses of it a day) , I dislike eating more than twice a day, and if I dont wanna eat, I just eat an apple and bottle of water.



I know my eating habits arent great, but it makes me ill to eat when I am not hungry, or to eat more than I have to. When I do eat, it is balanced meals, and not crap. I would like to avoid insulin while pregnant at all cost, even if I get GD, which there is a good chance of.



On top of all of this, I am really worried about my back if I slowly put on an additional weight while carrying a pregnancy, since my options for pain management are limited.

With my last pregnancy I was worried because I kept losing.
My doctor said it was fine as long as baby was growing. He said they recommended that overweight/obese women gain nothing if possible and if they do, no more than 15 pounds. I ended up with a net gain of 8 pounds and she weighed 9 lbs. 8 oz. not sure how but yea...lol

He said that because that's the average. Not that he wanted you to, right? Cause I've never heard a doc recommending that to overweight women.

I am so so so sorry to hear this... It looks like nobody is having luck this time around. :-( All we can do is to hope that next time will be different in a good way.

I was not overweight when I got pregnant with DS. I still only gained 10 lbs and all of that was after 32 weeks. DS was 6lb 11oz and perfectly healthy. On the day I left the hospital I weighed what I did when I got pregnant and a week later I was 10 lbs less than pre-pregnancy weight.
