I feel just like I do before AF shows. I POAS this morning and its even darker which I know is good, I know these are pregnancy symptoms too. I just can't shake the paranoia.
We had a miscarriage 2 years ago around 5 weeks, so I think that's playing a part too.
Anyone else going from happy one moment to paranoid wreck the next?

Big yes over here. I wish I wasn't so scared of losing this baby, it feels like it takes away from some of the happiness I should be feeling. Though I have decided that, no matter what, this is the only time I will be pregnant with this baby so I am going to celebrate that. I figure that even if something happens, people knowing or not knowing isn't going to make it less painful and hiding it doesn't feel good either so why not let it out as I want to? I want pregnancy to be a happy time so I am working to try to get over my worries and just embrace the journey, no matter where it takes me

Also on the bloated front, check out these two pics. First is 3w2d and the second is my 4w pic that I actually took at 4w1d because I forgot . A great start right? Now I know it is not going to be baby yet but geez I feel so thick and gross come night time. I felt bloated as heck in the first one too but it's getting worse!

Ladies that crazy worrying never really goes away....

I worried with my first a lot.. the whole first trimester, I was a mess. I kept thinking if I can just get to the 2nd we will be ok. Then I got there and found a whole new list of crap to worry about. Then it was just get this baby out and I can stop worrying, but nope. Once they are born you get an brand new endless supply of worry....

Welcome to motherhood!!! If you dont enjoy the happy parts of it all it would be is worrying

Lol welcome to motherhood. That sums it up in a neat little package doesn't it?

The first hour after the positive test was pure excitement. Then the fear set in. I have 3 miscarriages in the past. The doctors now think my clotting disorder was the cause, but there is such fear. I hope my fear doesn't ruin this pregnancy.

I'm pretty bloated and crampy too. It comes and goes throughout the day. Morning and evening tend to be the worst.

Also, the exhaustion...my goodness, it just hit me today like a big ol' truck!
