Ladies, I'm getting so nervous about miscarrying. I have no reason to think that I am or will. I'm just really scared and wasn't before that stupid appointment yesterday.

Remember how I said I bled some after the exam b/c of my cervix? Well of course I had leftover dried blood on the tp today and a some on my cervix and now I can't think straight at work.

I guess I just need some reassurance or a hug.

I know how you feel. In between my dancing on cloud nine moments are my worry-wort moments. I was so excited for my first u/s on 9/17, but then I battle with nerves and thinking "oh please let there be a strong heartbeat."

I think regardless of whether you have had a m/c previously or not, once you are pregnant, you go into protective mom mode, worrying about the best for your baby. I just try to listen to my friends who insist I stay positive and think positive.

I'm very sorry your doctor has put you in this position of worry.

Aww hun if it helps any that is totally normal! The first trimester is a scary time and I think the hormone rush from pregnancy just makes it worse. Hang in there!

I am in the same boat as you. I am more than scared to keep testing but want to see the line get darker.. since it has been so faint so far.... Is it second trimester time yet?!

I think we can all relate at least a little! I have had one other pregnancy with no complications really but I did bleed for a few weeks with him unexplained.. I am terrified this time around!!

I feel you! I'm also worried about it but I'm trying to push it from my mind. I have been testing with dollar store tests and praying they get darker...so far test line isn't as dark as control which makes me kind of nervous. I guess I will find out for sure what's going on on the 12th...unless I start bleeding before ( sounds awfully pessimistic )

You'll be fine. I'd say that you'll beat the odds, but there are no odds to beat - the odds are overwhelmingly in your favor. Every day, healthy babies are born. Significantly more babies are born healthy than are lost.

It's okay to face the fear. If you try to always push it away, it will stick around more. So every so often, let yourself fear it. Let yourself worry about your baby - you're going to worry for its whole life - that's what moms do!

I battle with myself every day! I stay up and night worrying about everything. I need to relax and realize how special this time is, and try not to count down every second til second trimester! You are definitely not alone!

This is my 4th and I still have the fear. I had it with all 3 boys and it is normal *hugs* but the thought stinks and is hard to get past your mind. You're not alone.
