I am already feeling anxious. And wondering if the ultrasound next week will be okay. I really really wish I was super sick so that I would feel better about this pregnancy, but I feel so nervous. I was sick on Monday night but have barely felt nauseous since then and even though my levels were great I am still having a hard time feeling positive.
I hate how having repeated miscarriages makes you feel. It sucks.
Next Thursday we are getting another ultrasound done at 6 weeks and 2 days to see the fetal pole and yolk sack and possibly a little heartbeat, but I am so worried we won't see it. I have no idea how we will make it thru the next 8 days.
The doctor said everything looked great yesterday, but it is so early it could easily go the other way. I want to be positive and have tried so hard to (and succeeded for the most part) but today it is hard for me. I feel like I am already getting invested in this pregnancy and that scares me because I know how much more devastated I will be if I lose this one as well.
Ugh, the 2nd trimester cannot come soon enough! Okay, rant over.

No advice because I haven't been there before dealing with the losses, but I just wanted to let you know I'm praying for you!
I can only imagine how nervous you are! Try to stay busy- find something to keep you occupied, some crafts or a puzzle or something to take your mind off it. Get plenty of rest too! I know whats been working for me is to spend a little time outside every evening. While I am super tired right before bed- I wake up in the middle of the night, restless. Getting the fresh air and exercise has helped me a ton with that. I'm sleeping thru the night again.
**hugs** you have been through so much! I'm so sorry you are going through this... It sucks when the innocence of pregnancy is gone. Try to stay positive and remember that your doctor is already doing things differently to make sure this baby ends up safetly in your arms. Hang on to that. And... I said you aren't allowed to leave, so it's all gonna be good
Right there with you too, and no U/S for me, although I wish I could at least see the HB. Every single day we make it further is a miracle in itself. Repeat losses are heartbreaking and make it so hard to just sit back and really enjoy the early days when we are not hugely uncomfortable.
I am waiting with my breath held for tomorrow, which is 15DPO, when I realized I was probably losing my last, then for Friday, which is 16DPO when I got my negative blood test last time, then Saturday, which 17DPO, which is when I started spotting with my last. Then I am waiting for next Wednesday, which will bring me to 5 weeks, which is the furthest I have gone with my early losses. Then on to the second trimester. It is a week full of milestones that I am determined to meet and pass with ease, but my heart is heavy knowing what has happened in the past. Prayers for you sweetie.
We've only had one loss so I cant imagine how much scarier after having several losses. It does make each day go by excruciatingly sloooow. Hopefully your book helps you pass the time quicker and praying you have a sticky bean!
