Hi, My name is Michelle (38) and DH is Paul (38). We've had 4 losses in the past year and we are still trying for out 1st. So, I've completely messed up on my dates this month, i got my last AF on March 7. I think that I ovulated 2 weekends ago, i poas OPK and got a positive. I've had my sister and her 1 yr old twins staying with us this week, so I've completely lost track of what day I am on and when exactly I ovulated. So, i poas yesterday and today and got a very very faint positive. Ok, so I Pee'd on 7 of them, over the past two days and they've all had a faint line. I'm not ready to admit to myself that I am Pregnancy but I know that I am. Confusing, i know. My bb's are sore and i've been exhausted, Couple that with the faint positive. I don't know if I can deny it any longer. I'm so afraid to be PG again. How did you guys deal with the conflicting emotions? I'm such a basket case right now, rediculously excited and scared to death. aaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

And - you're totally normal! BIG Welcome and congratulations! I hope this is the sticky bean for you!!! I am on my 3rd pregnancy after 2 loses. I know - it's really not easy. Were your losses early? Mine were at 10 weeks and then 5 1/2 - so for me it all got a lot easier after 10 weeks, the first ultra sound, then feeling movement (best thing ever while pregnant- I promise ) 20 week U/S and then honestly after that the time has flown by. Someone here told me a mantra - 'I believe in my body my baby is ok' - it's really helped me. Big hugs and please come here for all the support and love we can give!

Thank you Kiliki for my first beautiful Siggie!

Welcome! I hope this is a sticky bean for you.

This is my 3rd pregnancy this year and after 2 losses I didn't really feel secure about this baby until, oh, maybe a week or two ago! Truly, I think my anatomy scan at 19 weeks was the one thing that made me think this baby might stick around. So what you are feeling is very normal. I hope you can get an early u/s to confirm things...I had one at 6 weeks and got to see a hb (for the first time ever!) and that helped my anxiety so much. I would just push for an u/s for "dating purposes" and actually, it sounds like you don't really know the date anyway so you need one!

Welcome and congrats! Like the other ladies said, what you are feeling is totally normal. Unfortunately, we can no longer go through pregnancy carefree, we will always have these worries. Lots of sticky dust to you.
