Two losses, two years ago. One at 7 weeks, one at 10 weeks.
Husband and I are still youngish so we were not trying and not preventing.
Last month we made love the fewest times in a long time due to work/family stress. You know how it is. Life happens.
I'd been miserable at my current job and had an interview scheduled for Monday. As a half-joke I said to husband "Let's take a pregnancy test, just to see??" We walk out of Wal-Mart with a cheap Wal-Mart brand test.
I go home and take it... and wouldn't you know it, positive. Three other tests confirmed it as well.
I honestly didn't know if I should interview at new job. I had these thoughts: Is it bad to take a new job being VERY newly pregnant? With my history of losses I was certainly not going to tell the new boss. My deepest, darkest fear was that I'd pass up a wonderful opportunity for professional growth and lose the baby. Not too optimistic, I know. But reality stinks.
So I went on interview, got the job, fantastic.
Have first OB appointment Monday at 3:30. I do not want to lay on the table again. I do not want an ultrasound. I am so so scared.
I go through moments of bliss and joy... looking at baby clothes online.... Then I go through tears and fear. I am trying to "focus on the positive," as that's what is best for the baby.
It's just scary. Real, real scary.
Thanks for letting me share. I don't even know what to tell OB about last period, because I honestly dont remember.
*hugs* I'm sorry you're going through this. I'm not currently pregnant, but remember the fear all too well. I'll be praying for a GREAT appointment on Monday. Please make sure you update us and know that we're here for you no matter what.
Thanks to Jaidynsmum for my siggy!

I go to the doctors on Monday at 3:30. That morning will likely drag by like crazy. I am so scared. I read about early miscarriages in the DDC board for when I will be due. I am trying to stay positive and look on the bright side, but it's very scary..
