I understand completely! I've had a couple girls close to me MC and I think that's why I'm so paranoid. Just take it one day at a time, that's all we can do! Sending positive thoughts your way!

You know, I was exactly the same with my first pregnancy. I just went about my normal everyday routines until I started really showing at 5 or 6 months and then it started sticking that I'm having a baby. Once you get past the first trimester, it gets much easier as far as the negative thoughts go, at least it did for me.

I didn't want to tell anyone about this pregnancy because I'm afraid we could lose it, but I'm already starting to show, I actually look preggers already, so I'm not sure how I'm going to keep it a secret, especially from my sister. I had to hold my arm over my stomach yesterday when I saw her because I thought for sure she was going to call me out on it.

Anyway, I just waited until the second trimester before I started buying things and thinking names. I think what you're feeling is totally normal - of course you want your baby, but it's hard to get excited when we all know there is that chance that it might not come to be I get so upset when I see people leave the DDCs, it stinks to get so far just with getting PG and then having to deal with the loss after that.

I completely understand. As thrilled as I am to be pregnant, I am scared to death to let myself relax and enjoy it because of my MC last month. Like Rhonda said, I think when the 2nd trimester comes around, you feel so much more at ease

I know how you feel. I want the second trimester to be here so badly, but I don't know if I'll ever fully relax until I'm holding my baby in my arms....and then a whole new set of worry kicks in!

I know how you feel. I can't bring myself to even think of names or do any shopping or anything yet. I'm so scared I'm going to jinx it. I've even had days where I'm so pessimistic that I'm sure I'm going to lose this one too, and then when I feel that way, it makes me feel like, well I wish I would just m/c already, and get it over with instead of this insane limbo-land.
Maybe that sound morbid but 40 weeks seems like such a long time to sit on pins and needles waiting for a healthy baby!

This time I am like that because I got so happy and excited last time only to have it torn away from me. So this time is like surreal. I haven't told a bunch of people yet, so that could be part of it. Like the secrecy makes it not real. KWIM?

Anyways, I stress until week 24 when viability is reached. Then I pride myself for making it another week and another week until birth. Helps me feel at ease that should something happen, doctors will consider my baby worth trying to save.

I bought two baby books and a stuffed lil monkey tonight and aske the lady at the cashier I it was bad luck. I couldn't bring myself to buy clothes yet though (gender neutral) even though they had some almost irristable stuff. I can't wait til I get an ultrasound with a good pic of the baby and all seems well.

There were these super cute girly giraffe rompers at Target at the beginnin of the summer that I wanted to buy so bad but I was afraid I would jinx myself... My mom told me how she found this card that was a great way to tell her mom for when she got preggo again, but then it never happened. So now I'm paranoid.
