At 6 weeks, I started to wonder where my pregnancy symptoms were. All my other pregnancies I have been as sick as dog on week 5. The only other time I felt nothing, I miscarried at 8 weeks. I started to wonder if the doctor mixed up my blood test results? So I took a pregnancy test (yes I can’t believe I hadn’t done that yet!) and it was positive… Hmmm chemical pregnancy? Super early miscarriage?
I have consulted Aunt Google and now my paranoia is in overdrive. However, one little thing gives me hope… I never had any symptoms that suddenly stopped. There were many mummies who felt nothing the whole way through and they were told they were ‘lucky’. I have one week to wait to find out if I am indeed Lucky. Until I see a heartbeat I will assume the worst.
The problem with an overseas IVF adventure is the amount of people that want to know the result at 5 weeks. I have been telling people that I won’t know for a few weeks. I am well aware of the dangers of telling people before the 12 week mark. I was unaware but my husband is telling people it’s positive. I am livid as yesterday a waitress I barely know congratulated us. Then I received a card in the mail with a soft toy. OMG. Do I give it back if the scan confirms I’m not pregnant?
Until next week I’ll try to block all this paranoia out – and avoid people and the letterbox.
