I want to be so excited about this pregnancy! I really really really do! But in the back of my mind, I expect to go in Monday for an ultrasound and get the news that this one isn't going to sustain either. It's such an awful thing to think that!

I had mild spotting at 9dpo for like 5-6 days, but nothing really since. My beta went from 171 to 770 4 days later so that seems okay. I made my dr do a progesterone draw today because I was worried about low progesterone (b/c of the spotting, and I've always had short luteal phases), so I'll get those results tomorrow.

I think really it's because I have NO symptoms. Everyone in my DDC has either sore boobs, fatigue, morning sickness, frequent urination, etc etc. And I don't have ONE of those. I didn't have any symptoms with my other pregnancy either so I'm just thinking it's really not going to happen again.

Monday can NOT come soon enough!!

Some people don't have any symptoms at all. I know it's easier said than done but stay positive, the first u/s appointment is the hardest, after that they get better. Try to have a good weekend and distract yourself as much as possible. My first appointment was also on a monday, and it was a horrible weekend, I didn't do anything to distract myself. So go out and do stuff all weekend. Good Luck.

I'm actually going shopping in NYC on Saturday with a bunch of girlfriends. Sunday I have so much to do around the house. So I know Monday will come fast.

I'll be 6 weeks exactly, so I know there's a chance I won't hear the heartbeat (but I SOO hope I can!). If I can, and my prog level comes back good, I'll completely be relieved and stop worrying (really, I think!).

I'm so glad you ladies are here, people who haven't had a loss really just don't understand how scary it is.

I didn't have ANY symptoms until I hit 6 weeks. I think some people just get them later or not at all. I can't wait to hear about your GREAT appointment on Monday!

I didn't have any symptoms until after 6 weeks. It may have been more like 8 weeks. I hope you have a great appointment on Monday! Try to stay positive. I know how hard it can be.

I really don't believe in symptoms being a sign of a good pregnancy. I was SOOOOO sick with my previous pregnancy that I had to have prescriptions so that I could eat/drink. It sadly ended in a mc. However, with Hayden I never threw up, NEVER. Bless him!

I think it is easy to scare yourself into thinking something is wrong, at least it is for me 'cause I do it all the time. Just try to stay busy and keep away from the Google monster.

We are here for you and praying that all goes well tomorrow - big HUGS!

Christine, I'm praying that all is well on Monday. I know it's scary, but just try to think positive. I'm looking forward to the wonderful update on Monday. Enjoy your weekend.

Christine, just think positive and I am sure everything will turn out fine. I have my ultrasound next Friday and it really cannot come fast enough.
I know that forgetting about it is much easier said than done! I am also trying to stay positive but also trying to prepare myself for the worse. I never want to feel the same as I did the first time I went in for an ultrasound and found out there was no baby. I don't think we can ever totally prepare ourselves but I just never want to be so stunned like that again.

I really am not having any smyptoms other than being tired. I do not remember having any trouble with my last prengnancy until at least 8 weeks. Also with every prengnacy I really have never had morning sickness. I have nausea sometimes ,but that is it. I completly understand what you are going through Just keep thinking positive. I am not getting to excited yet either. Believe me I am over joyed ,but Do not want to get my hopes up yet.

((HUGS)) I understand how you feel. I was a nervous wreck till my first u/s yesterday. Hang in there....I'm hopeful you'll get great news on Monday.

Don't worry about the lack of symptoms. With my first pg I didn't even test till AF was nearly a month late, because I didn't think I could get pg and because I had NO symptoms. It was the easiest pg...no cramping, m/s or complications. It can happen!
