I've gotten 4 positive pregnancy tests in the past 2 days. I've had two past miscarriages, so I'm always really cautious and I worry a lot about that.
I've told my Mom so far and she has a hard time being excited for me because she's scared to get my hopes up. And, I'm scared to get my hopes up, too. I haven't jumped around or acted super excited in the past two days. I'm just shocked and I keep looking at my pregnancy test pictures to make sure I didn't just see it and it wasn't there, or it wasn't some sort of sham. I'm looking at the pictures every hour and I know in my head you don't get four positives and then you're not pregnant. I know I am.
I'm finding an OBGYN Monday to hopefully get some closure, but I'm sure it'll be a few works before my first appointment.
I've wanted a baby so badly, I don't have a child. Just past miscarriages! So, I should be SO happy and I keep wondering why I can't just accept it.
first of all HUGE SUPER DUPER FREAKING BIG FAT GIANT MONSTER HOOKER FANGBANGER Im sorry for your losses! it is so hard not to get your hopes up when you get that but in your case I would also be cautious! I was cautious and a little worried that there wasnt going to be a hb so it was nice to get to see my little nugget and see the hb! I hope you can find a doctor that can get you in ASAP! so they can ease your mind!
Its normal to have some anxiety about being pregnant especially once you have already had a m/c.. but try to relax - stressing yourself out isnt going to make things any better. I know its easier said than done!
Not sure if you are a spiritual person - but if you are - PRAY!! It might add some ease to your mind!!
I really hope everything goes well for you!!! I'm kind of in the same boat as you, I miscarried in Nov & Dec!! =( they were really early, but still really hurt. When I heard my babys heart beat yesterday I cried, it was incredible. I'll be praying for you and your little October pumpkin!
I know all too well how you feel, it took me a while to be okay with "I am pregnant" I had 2 m/c's but very different, one was early on and the baby never showed up...The other I was farther along. So I feel like no matter what I will kinda worry. But you have to just "let go and let GOD" I have to leave it in his hands cause if not i will go crazy the next 8 months... HUGS sweetie! Praying for you little bean!
I am in the same boat (2 miscarriages). It still hasn't hit me yet. I took 2 test last Sunday and both positive and went to the dr on Monday and saw peanut on the u/s but am still in denial. I even went to the store today and bought another test, and it still say positive. So, I am still pregnant. I think I will be more at ease in the 2nd trimester.
I'm still in shock! I went through alot of different emotions when I found out. I'm 40, will be 41 when this baby is born. I have been NFP for a very long time, thought I knew my cycle inside and out. After more than 5 years of counting I must've O'd early. I'm still struggling with being a new grandmother and new expecting mother at the same time.
I suppose God had different plans than I did It's all in his hands. And somehow I think that these little babies have a mind of their own whether to stay or not.
Hugs to you. I hope that you can celebrate with Joy and peace soon!
I know exactly what you feel like. Even at over 7 weeks now and having seen the heartbeat I am still so nervous! I had a m/c August 2010 and it took me this long to get pregnant again. I have been super nervous and worried about losing this one as well but at this point, it really is out of our hands...
I hope your little bean sticks!!! You should go to the doctor monday and ask for beta draws and progesterone. Maybe your progesterone was low with the first two and that's why you miscarried? Have you had that checked? And the beta values should double every 24-48 hours so you need to get them drawn once, then 2-3 days after that again to see if they doubled; that should give you a good indicator of how things are going. I really hope this is it for you! I know the feeling of wanting a baby so badly!!
I do know that feeling. My first pregnancy was my loss (around 6 weeks) and then it was almost 2 1/2 years before I got pregnant with my first son. To say I was a nervous wreck would be the understatement of the year. Even now, this is my fifth pregnancy and hopefully fourth child and I still am a bit disconnected during the first trimester even though the symptoms are kicking my butt and I already look about 4 months pregnant. All you can do is take it one day at a time. Praying for a nice healthy baby for you!
I just wanted to send a big (((hug))). Hang in there! The first trimester is SO difficult! There are so many unknowns and it's particularly hard when you've had to experience a loss (or several) before So sorry! I hope this baby is super sticky!!!
