Me as well on the capsules, I have depression normally which I med resistant too, so I use a lot of alternative methods.



I have pcos, but never had a cyst that grew large, but does that clinic look good to you as well?



The south isn't friendly with alternative medicine, it makes me miss New York.

Yes, it was transvaginal :) I hope that method is right!
I ate a hot dog and a half today... smothered in ketchup and mustard. It was SO GOOD! :)

I go to my network's ultrasound department. My info is sent over to my OB and she can review them. I never got a phone call on Friday.... I hope no news is good news.

I've been craving hot dogs and a California club from Jimmy John's... of course that means deli meats. I've also been craving white wine :oops:

Quoting CLC 7 weeks:" Why do people have the nerve to tell someone TTC for many years to just relax and it will happen. I announced ... [snip!] ... $10,000 to have my eggs surgically removed and Injected with sperm. I did not just relax! Not can I get pregnant on my own."


Wow!
PS... you're brave for announcing it so early! I don't think I am until my OB appointment on 9/24. I'll be 12 weeks and I think (if it's the same kind of schedule as Jace as far as prenatal appointments) they'll listen on a doppler for a HB. I just want that last confirmation that everything's okay in there.

I looked into it after my ectopic. But I never followed through :oops:

Mmm! The California club sounds good. I think once in a while it'll be safe to eat if it's warmed up all the way. With how paranoid I am, I always avoided it in my first trimester.

I would give the Chinese herbs a try!

Yuck to being warmed up. It's not the same. I think if I ate one every once in a while, it's not so bad. They follow food handling laws, I think they should be okay.

Awesome pricing since they're students! I know the only acupuncturist DH would send me to here is $150/visit w/o the supplements! I think its DEFINITELY worth a try. I mean, all you're doing right now is waiting anyway, right? If it doesn't work, you're no worse for the wear. And trust me, I know all about the south...Alabama born and raised. Fortunately I moved to Huntsville from the sticks a couple years ago, so I have much more access to homeopathy.

So I got ahold of my OB because she never called me on Friday. Although she says she did and the phone rang and there was no option to leave a voicemail. :roll:
So I must have misunderstood something or there was a miscommunication. Baby is actually implanted high near the juncture of my right tube and fundus. Baby is growing on track (which we already knew) but there is a small possibility that the placenta could make it's way into my tube and turn into an ectopic pregnancy. The nurse said it's a slight possibility but I was referred to a perinatologist. I left a message with them to set an appointment, but they'd like to see me for an ultrasound within a week. Wish me luck.

Oh good grief Lindsey, only you I swear! Good luck, although I agree there's probably only a very small possibility of it actually happening. I've never heard of such a thing!

Right?! I was thinking the same thing to myself... only me! What are the odds I would wind up with two ectopics in a row. I'm not going to think like that because it's not going to happen!
Funny you mention you've never heard of it... I shared this in another group and no one has heard of it there either. Strange! Well let's hope the perinatologist has good things to say. I'm supposed to go for my first OB appointment on Friday, I wonder if they'll just assume care or what.
