We lost our first Angel at somewhere between 4-5 weeks about a year and eight months ago. I got my bfp today. I was thinking "Ok I'll wake up now and test and just go back to bed. It'll be negative anyways." Well, I got a second line right away. I was only half awake, so I thought I was dreaming when that second line popped up.

I'll have to admit now I'm getting a bit nervous, but I guess that's natural. AF was due today. I'm cramping a little. Just little tinges really. Kinda different from AF cramps. I have a week to go before we reach our milestone with this bean. With my angel, I found out I was pregnant, and a week later miscarried. Some minutes I'm more nervous than excited and other moments I'm more excited than nervous. Am I nuts or is this normal?

Thanks for reading.. sorry it got a bit long.

Edited to add: Is it safe to chew sugar free gum while pregnant? Chewing gum really helps to chew me down. I wont if it's unsafe. Would gum with real sugar be better?

Edited to add: UPDATE

Just told DH.. He just got the biggest fit the giggles. We held each other and laughed and I cried and yeah.. good day. I had to wait through a four hour shift and didn't say a word. You ladies knew before DH. DH walked in the door a little bit ago, I showed him the test and he was like "Wow! That's a nice strong line for this early! I think that's a good sign." He's so happy and I am too.

Congrats and Welcome!!

What you're feeling is totally normal. I felt the same way. And the cramping is normal for pregnancy too. I know how hard it is to be happy, and not as scared. I'm 13 weeks and STILL scared. LOL

I hope you have a healthy and happy 9 months!!

Welcome and congrats again!

It's completely normal, at least I hope so, else we're all nuts here! I'm 12 weeks and still have quite a bit of anxiety from time to time...and days of complete happiness and security. It's a crazy trip, but one I love to take!

It's totally normal to be nervous. Heck, I'm still nervous. Just try and enjoy every moment that you have and not worry about what what may or may not happen.
As for the gum... try to avoid anything with sachrine, there is some debate over it and a bunch of lab rats. Everything else is fine.

Worrying is normal. Hopefully you can find something to take your mind off of it, because unfortunately worrying makes the time crawl!

Regular gum would be better, but sugar free isn't horrible....

Like the others said, the worries are normal. I am so hoping this is your sticky bean!
