I am pregnant again after having a m/c in Nov. 04. It has taken this long to get pregnant again - guess all that stressing.
I am 7w1d today with a EDD of Sept 27 (our wedding anniversary).
I am having a hard time relaxing and enjoying being pregnant.
With my m/c I had migraines every week till the m/c and this Sunday I had one - so I freaked out.
At my 6 week visit with my Dr. (with the first pregnancy), I was told the baby had stopped developing at 3 weeks.
I had a u/s on the 2nd at 6w1d and all was fine. We even saw and heard the heartbeat.
I still can't help but be so nervous and paranoid. I know it is wonderful to hear the heartbeat, but can I really start to relax a bit? I am just so worried something will go wrong again.
I am in the process of looking for a new Dr.'s office. I don't like that they didn't do any bloodwork to check HCG or Prog. (I have called 5 times to get a script) and they just aren't ever available to answer questions. I have an appointment on the 23rd - which I think I will keep since I have a good chance of them doing another u/s (many offices don't). But after that, I am going somewhere else.
I would love some words of encouragment - similar stories with successes. Anything to help me chill out.
I don't want to stress.
Welcome and congrats! You are in the right place, we are all just as nervous as you are. Its hard to try to be calm when you know what could happen. All of us are pretty much in the same boat and are here to support eachother and listen to eachother.
That is wonderful that you got to see/hear the hb. I did as well last week and thought that would make me calm down a bit, but NOPE i am still just as nervous that something is going to happen. I am due the 27th as well . So we can be DD buddies.
Just try to relax and in the meantime you are in the right place b/c we are all here to worry as much as you
It is very helpful to know that I am not along in all this worry.
I am doing better today. Had my massage and adjustment this morning. My neck and lower back are feeling much better.
I have my new Dr. choices narrowed down to two places. I am getting feedback from some locals about what they have heard or experience there.
Doxieluver: DD Buddies sounds nice. I will be great to have someone at the same stage to talk to.
I thought seeing the HB would make me not worry as much too - but it hasn't. Guess we are just getting prepared to be good moms. Can't wait for my next appointment.
Hi and welcome, sorry for the late reply. I wont tell you not to worry, because I am the queen of that. I will just tell you instead to try and distract yourself with a project or book or something. That works for me sometimes. I am in the september ddc too, so nice to have you along in pregnancy after miscarriage as well. I look forward to getting to know you and your little bean!
