13 w pregnant and first meeting with consultant

Published February 21, 2014 by ivfdream

The appointment with my consultant yesterday went brilliantly. He told us that after what he saw and heard that we can be very confident! He also that we could tell people now. We have told close friends and family but we still feel shy about anyone else. DH thinks at 14 weeks and I agree though work can wait until I really have to.
Doctor also told me I can come off cyclogest at 16 weeks but will stay on clexane injections all the way. A few weeks before the big day, I will need to stop and start thickening my blood. I’m a bit frustrated as I hate them and so does my poor DH as he has to give them every morning.
It’s a small thing.
Doctor was really sympathetic about our long, hard journey to here. He carried out all my d and c procedures and laparoscopic, hysteroscopy surgery and diagnosed me with endometriosis. We have always found him to be the perfect mix of professionalism, experience and empathy and he wants me to take some time off work in third trimester as he said that this is such a precious pregnancy and he wants me to really enjoy and relax.
I’m happy with all of this, my belly is slightly popping but don’t think anyone would notice. My jeans are getting slightly snug but should get a few more weeks! I heard one can use an elastic band to get some time out of my trousers, any other tips?

  • You can use a rubber band on pants, that worked well for me for a few weeks. loop it thru the button hole then around the button. No need t buy anything fancy to make to make it work 🙂 Congratulations on your update!
