I really wish my first trimester was over and I was into the second trimester. I really can't wait until I can feel the little guy moving around so I know he/she is okay. Right now I think my heart stops everytime I go to the bathroom, just worried that this time I might see some blood. So far baby is doing great but I just wish the first trimester would hurry up.

I am sorry you are having to deal with all of the first trimester emotions. They are so scary. I freaked out enough around my 11 week mark my Dr. gave me an ultrasound for reassurance. It was absolutely terrifying. I hope the next few weeks go by quickly for you.

Just a few more weeks! It'll pass, even though it seems like it takes forever and a day. It's so scary and I was very relieved when I made it into the second trimester.

Yes it is. PAL is very scary and it sucks we have to feel so scared when we should be so happy. You are almost there, I hope you feel huge relief in a few weeks when you reach the second tri. ((HUGS))

hang in there Melissa -you're so close to 2nd tri, i know it seems like forever but it'll be here before you know it! And you should be able to feel your LO moving earlier having BTDT before too...I know that'll be very reassuring once you get to that point. HUGS

I'm right there with you Melissa! I'm looking forward to getting to the stage where I can enjoy being pregnant.
I keep challenging myself not to look at the TP when I go to the bathroom. I have failed every time.

Just a few more weeks until you feel your little one moving all around! I would not wish these emotions on anyone, I wish their was something we could take and go to sleep until the second trimester!

I am right there with you. I ALWAYS check for blood when I go to the restroom. I keep getting flash backs of my last loss. I just want to pass that point and see the baby on the u/s. I hate feeling terrified like this.

The first trimester is so hard and goes by so slow, but the rest will go by sooo fast!

Sam I do the same thing..lol. But I just can't bring myself not to look. Do you think we will look any less during the second trimester.

Thanks ladies. It's so nice to have reassurance from all of you!

The whole thing is going to be scary for me. I can not wait to be able to feel baby move so I know things are ok.
With MTHFR I can lose this baby at anytime not just 1st trimester And I guess I have a really high risk of Pre eclampsia (SP).

Yesterday I told the nurse if I got good news I would promise to calm down ... and she said "I really dont think you will until this baby is born... and that is ok" I think she is correct.

I checked the TP all through pregnancy right to the end. Heck still am . You are almost to the second trimester just hang on. Before you know it you will be in the third trimester wondering where the time went LOL.

I'm with you too. Tomorrow I *finally* start the second trimester. It feels like it's been FOREVER!

I checked the toilet paper for a long time since I had spotting at the beginning. That eventually went away (the checking I mean). Hopefully it goes away for you too.
