^^^i'm assuming that means the possible ectopic was completely ruled out and you've been given a clean bill of health? if so, yahoo!!
are you offered first trimester screening in newfoundland? if so, and you choose to do it, you will get another ultrasound at 11-13 weeks.
The u/s tech said she couldn't conclusively decide (but that might be because she's the tech, and it's the doctor who is supposed to interpret the images and make the final call). My doctor said the lab report suggested things looked "normal", so I guess that's good enough! I'm not having any symptoms, anyway. The pain I was having subsided, so it was either pscyhosomatic, OR it was an ovarian cyst that ruptured.
A triple-screen is available, but unlikely to be recommended because I have no history of birth defects in my family and no miscarriages under my belt. I don't know if it's "elective" or not. Part of me would like to do it for possible peace of mind, but I realize that I run the risk of getting results that suggest a possible problem, too. And then I could opt to do amnio.
My doctor (GP) seems pretty laidback about the whole thing, but I have an appointment with a gyno tomorrow (a spot opened up on the cancellation list vs. my original appt in July 2011 - so it's not even a pregnancy appointment - I'll have a lot of explaining to do when I get in there but I didn't want to cancel because here's my chance to see someone a bit more specialized!).
I'm still having a hard time even believing I'm really pregnant - my only persistent symptom so far is fatigue! I'm also feeling way too "superstitious" to start thinking about childcare or even the nursery, but it sounds like I'm going to have to get on the ball with the former maybe even sooner than the latter! Good luck, Maria!
For the cloth-diaperers, did any of you have a hard time convincing your partners to go this route? Or was it an easy joint decision? I don't have a clear sense of whether my husband is going to be supportive of cloth, but it's not a conversation we're having until I'm out of the first tri.
