Hi there! I hope you don't mind my taking up some space here to "get it all out."
I tested positive earlier this week and have, quite frankly, been freaking out ever since. How do you cope?
I lost my second and third children at 35 and 20 weeks, so this early part of pregnancy should be a breeze. But NOOOOO...I'm a complete basket-case. Not suicidal or homicidal or anything...I just can not concentrate on anything! And I'm analyzing every symptom (or lack thereof) and convincing myself that something is wrong when I have absolutely no realistic reason to think that. I just can not shut off my brain! I don't feel pregnant, but I can't forget that I'm pregnant...does that make any sense?
Good grief, this is going to be a very long nine months.
welcome to the PAL board... congratulations on your pregnancy I know how hard a pregnancy after loss can be - although my losses were both 1st trimester losses, so I don't totally understand what you are going through... but I think the only thing any of us can do, is to take our pregnancys a day at a time, and to try and think positive..... I was convinced my whole pregnancy that I would lose Gaby, but she's now coming up 6 months old
Welcome and congrats. I am so sorry for you losses. I have had 2 early losses myself. We are all here for you though. This board has wonderful ladies here with lots of support to give. Lots of hugs to you!

Congrats on your positive!! Being in this forum where everyone knows what it feels like to lose a baby has really helped my cope with my stress and panic attacks. I am so sorry to hear about your losses. I have many of the same feelings that you do. Everything has been perfectly normal but I still can't shake the sense of impending doom at times. I just breathe, and think positive thoughts to get myself through it. Whatever is going to happen is going to happen and worrying is not going to help you at all. That is the one thing I keep telling myself. Everyone here is great so whenever you feel a little crazy or really scared, come here....it really does help. Try to hang in there....
