Hi again ladies! I keep popping in and out due to life's demands but I try to come in when I do have a chance to get on the net. DH is a fb poker junkie when he gets off of work too so that doesn't help lol
Anywho, I know you all don't know me very well but I have mental illness. I've been managing my symptoms pretty well for the last 8 years. Anxiety seems to be my biggest struggle lately. Spotting/light cramping will do that to you too I guess I just managed to get my anxiety under control this week from the flare up and it seems it's already being tested. I had an appointment on Monday to follow up from my ER visit on the 13th. My doc wants me to get another early ultrasound. I'm not all for it. You can't see a heartbeat until around 6 weeks. According to all the hours upon hours I've been researching my butt off about this pregnancy, I should only be about 5 weeks 4 days pregnant today. I had very wacky cycles while we were ttc. Some cycles lasted a whole wopping 16 days! I have no idea when I o'ed. If I did, I'd have a spiffy ticker I really don't want to put myself through the added anxiety of not seeing a heartbeat and having to go again the following week or week after to make sure they do. So, that's my non-update-update, if that makes sense. I'll probably try scheduling my ultrasound before the 4th of March (seems like a pretty safe date to see a heartbeat to me) and totally post pictures!!! I'm a sucker for sharing pictures, just wait! LOL

I also struggle with mental illness.
I have ADHD and a major depressive disorder. I'm currently medicated, and that is approved until the 3rd trimester, when I will have to go without it until the birth.
You are not alone.
If you ever need any support, or want to vent any frustrations, feel free to PM me.
