I am sitting at my desk at work and I was on the phone with a customer when I had to sneeze, I tried to hold it back but I sneezed anyway and my lower abdomen felt like it was splitting in half! I've felt this type of pain and it was ALWAYS when AF is here.
I'm convinced that the pregnancy isn't viable. I know I have no reason to think that, but every pain, cramp and gas bubble makes me crazy. I've taken an HPT 3 times, once every 2 days and it's always positive, but I feel like at any minute, I'll start spotting and then heavy bleeding.
I'm starting to doubt that I'm pregnant at all, and that the three digis I used were wrong. After all, this is only CD 29 and I had one cycle in the past year that was this long (the rest are 23 days) so it's possible that AF is just going to make a horrible appearance at any moment.
I hate feeling this way and DH won't even talk to me now because I'm so negative. Thanks for letting me vent.

I'm sorry that you're feeling so down Sometimes I think it's just easier to pretend it's doomed and that we don't care than to try to hope. But it's a lot more fun when we let in some of that hope
The pain you're describing sounds like round ligament pain to me. It is a sharp pain that makes you stop in your tracks that usually happens when you move quickly... sneezing is a common thing to cause it. Everything I have read says that it usually doesn't happen in the first trimester, but I ALWAYS have round ligament pains very early in the first trimester. It sounds like a good sign to me!
I'm sorry you're feeling this way about the pregnancy! I know the feeling though. For the first 10 weeks or so I was basically just waiting to lose the pregnancy. How long until you pass your previous loss date? Sometimes getting past that milestone can really help give you a feeling of hope. Hang in there!
I'm so sorry that you are having a difficult time. Pregnancy after a loss is so hard. I wish none of us ever had to experience a loss. I'm sure that if you've had 3 HPT that have shown positive that you are indeed pregnant. Not sure about the pain sneezing, but I know with pregnancy you have all kinds of pains. Have you set your first dr appointment yet? Might help with your anxiety to see your dr.
