Friday at 9:45. If it goes back to red I'm going to try to get in sooner (or at least head to urgent care) if only to make sure there's still a hb. I'm still a little paranoid :(

Quoting babycakes!:" Slight tmi O have a discharge question. I feel like ny discharge has literally not only doubled, but quadrupole!! Like my underwear os always soaked from discharge! Is this normal??"


Totally normal.



Its from the extra progesterone in yoru system during pregnancy---taking progesterone supplements makes it SO INCREDIBLY RIDICULOUS!



And discharge in pregnancy is 100% normal at ANY point in pregnancy unless:



1). It smells sweet or you have a sudden gush (could be amniotic fluid)
2). Its mucousy. Yes, plugs can regenerate, but its worth mentioning to a doctor if you're prior to 34-35 weeks because it COULD also be a sign of pre-term labor (was for me with my 23 weeker).
3). It is yellow/green tinged or has a bad smell.



Other than that, creamy, eggwhite-y, watery, and it can come and go from barely noticeable to constantly sopping wet---and often comes out more when you sneeze or cough, even before you start to have bladder leakage in later pregnancy (for those that do, I never have).

I'd do the same. I wish you were far enough along that a doppler would be useful. I have two of those and I'd gladly loan you one, hon!

Progesterone suppositories makes it so much worse. It was never this much with DD.

Thanks for the offer, I may take you up on it in a few weeks ;) I think I'll feel a lot more confident in bean's stickiness provided I get to hear the hb at my appt. I'm still really bitter that we couldn't even WATCH the u/s last week. I AM going to ask if they'll schedule another u/s where we'll get to watch and get pics

I'd definitely do that. its total BS that they didn't even send images to your doc!



Maybe they emailed them? If so, ask your doc if he can send you a copy of the images? My doc did that for me. He burned them to a disc I gave him :D That was for the ER visit with Smidget when I was 13 weeks and bleeding---I asked for them because I'd seen a glimpse of boy-parts and wanted a better look (the tech had let me see because he'd done my ultrasound after my first 12 week miscarriage and KNEW how devastated I was. He remembered me, so he SWORE me to secrecy and wouldn't tell me anything at all and when I saw the crotch shot, I just asked "are those thigh bones?" and he said yes. Nothing else. I saw the HB on the screen with the rate when he measured it, but he didn't tell me or purposefully show me). My doc was really nice about it (he'd known I lost a previous pregnancy at similar gestation adn gotten NO ultrasound pictures, so he understood me wanting them).



Yeah, I'm gonna be abusing this Doppler in a couple weeks. 5w5d tomorrow---Approximately 2.5 weeks before I can start stalking this baby with any hope of success. My friend picked up her bean at 8w1d, but I've never picked it up reliably before 9w even :D

I'll ask, but the nurse said there was only the report. Since I didn't have a OB "officially" lined up even though I was pretty sure who I wanted, I didn't want it sent to him and then him not be there that day (he wasn't) OR him not be available (if that makes sense)

Oh, and I SWEAR I felt something as I was just laying quietly on the couch this evening. I KNOW it's too early (since I'm only 7 weeks) but I know it wasn't gas, I hadn't eaten anything so it wasn't digestion, and it didn't feel like the phantom kicks I've gotten fairly regularly since girlie was born. Crazy? Prolly

You're not even joking!



And not at all healthy for the mental stability of someone worried about miscarriage constantly---gushes of fluid? Pink discharge (my suppositories are pink)? Yeah, not helpful!



Luckily, my doc said they'd probably prescribe me the white pills at my appointment next week! WOOHOO! :D

Yay for getting white pills!



How have you been feeling? Saw the pic of you and Smidge on FB, too cute!

Heading into the shower and then hopefully able to get some sleep. I feel like I smell like a taco right now even though there have been NO tacos in this house in at least a week (sigh)

Could be a uterine spasm from growing. Probably what it is.



But I started feeling real movement with both boys at 11 weeks (confirmed with D via ultrasound when I said he was moving, doc said I was nuts, then he put the wand on my belly and D gave it hell :D Kid was trouble :D )

Could be. It was 3 or 4 staccato bumps almost ( I guess that would be the best way to describe it) on my lower right. I'm pretty sure I felt girlie right around 12 weeks. NO clue with boychild, I wasn't all into my pg until at least the 2nd tri b/c he was SUCH a shock and SUCH a life-changing experience. I definitely wasn't in denial with him, but I seriously considered giving him up and didn't want to get attached I think. I'm so glad everything worked out the way it did with him though. I wouldn't change a thing with him :)
