I feel like I'm in a 4-week-wait.

This is my 5th pregnancy, the last two were miscarriages. The first loss I miscarried at 10w2d. With the second loss, I had an ultrasound at 6w6d that showed a heartbeat, but then at my first appointment there wasn't one anymore.

My husband and I decided we'd wait until 8 weeks for an ultrasound this time. Partially because I feel that an ultrasound at 8 weeks would have shown no heartbeat with either loss and partially because at 8 weeks my clinic will let me have my first appointment. I do not want to have an ultrasound with no heartbeat and have to wait for my doctor to follow up with me--I want an appointment right after the ultrasound to discuss it.

So here I am, 12DPO with a positive test, in a 4 week wait until we'll have an ultrasound. A four week wait wondering if this baby is really alive or if this will be another loss.

waiting is always the worst part for me. I kept feel like I was just passing my life by just waiting for things to happen.... waiting to O, waiting to test, waiting for AF, waiting for a doctor appointment. And it really had me feeling down and crappy. Now I'm living for today and trying not to stress as much about what is going on. I know it's easier said than done.

I know what you mean, I started with a 4 WW - I have a very similar situation - went in for a check up b/c I was extremely ill, saw a hb at 6w, saw a hb at my 1st appt at 8w 3d, went in for spotting around 12 w and turns out the heart had stopped at 8w6d, I don't want to have to deal with that again either! I am down to just under 2...it is absolutely the hardest thing about this part of the pg, the waiting to find out "if"...GL, hope the time flies by for you!!

Thanks, ladies!

I called my husband at work today to tell him. When he came home he had a big silly grin on his face because of the baby. I really hope this is the one. But I'm also so incredibly nervous. I'll be 8 weeks on December 1st; I would really hate to spend the month of December depressed over another loss.
