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.
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 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, 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!
