My period is scheduled to come tomorrow. I have had increasingly darkening pregnancy tests for the past 6 days (since 8dpo) and my symptoms have increased. I still can't shake the fear of my period coming tomorrow. I am worried my body will tell the baby "Oh, I am supposed to bleed today, you need to leave." LOL Am I being crazy, or were you guys this scared too? Also, what are you guys doing to calm your nerves until your first appointment? I can't keep peeing on tests everyday or else I will go bankrupt. ***NOTE TO SELF: Buy stock in FRER ***

I had the same fear. It's totally normal. I've just been reminding myself that there are more healthy pregnancies than unhealthy ones and that everything will be ok. I also have a 15 month old to keep me distracted, so that helps. Really, the worry never stops. Just try to relax a little and enjoy your pregnancy .

I felt the exact same way and I agree that it's completely normal. Sending prayers your way for an uneventful day for you tomorrow!
Thank you, Marriedc, for my gorgeous siggy!

Hey, I'm lurking from the April DDC. Don't feel bad, I went through $80 worth of pregnancy tests during the first weeks...
