I think weeks 10 and 11 are going to be the hardest for me.

Yeah, I've been nervous about miscarrying since about 2 seconds after I got my BFP. But yesterday I was reading about development at 10 weeks, looking at pregnancy calendars, thinking about how far along I'd be by Christmas and such ... and I remembered that last time, 10w3d is when I started spotting.

Then I go to the DDC and read threads about the other ladies worrying. They don't have a certain symptom, they're spotting, they're cramping, all sorts of things. And the board is full of replies that just say "Don't worry, that's normal." I remember that's exactly what everyone told me. Something being normal, doesn't mean everything's OK! I can't even read those threads. It's too hard. But I don't want to tell them anything negative because it IS normal. And they probably WILL have healthy babies. It's really hard to wrap my head around the idea because my experience was so different.

I knew all along that week 11 would be hard because I actually miscarried at 11w5d, but I can't believe I didn't think about how hard week 10 would be. It was like the beginning of the end. I'm checking for blood at least every half hour.

I'll be praying for you and your bean, Lauren. I completely understand your fear and anxiety and I know there isn't anything I can say that will make you feel better. Hang in there and try to keep positive... C'mon week 12.

Lauren, I completely understand how you are feeling! I just try to reply to those theads in my ddc for them to keep their chin up and that i'll keep them in my prayers. I don't want to tell them positive or negative because people kept telling me it would be okay and it wasn't. I was nervous last week and today is the actual time frame I m/c last time. I've been to the bathroom a million times checking and looking for any symptom. My only advice is to take it one day at a time and just try to enjoy this pregnancy. I'm sure it will get easier as the time goes on.

I totally know what you mean. You know me, I am usually a postaholic but I think I post about once a day now because I am afraid to read the DDC posts too. Try to take it one day at a time and you will get through it.

I'll be thinking of you, and although these next few weeks you might worry your heart out, it'll all come to pass, and im sure she/he will be a healthy little one, my T& P are with you.!! **GROW BEAN GROW!**

I'm not going to lie here, it doesn't get easier. I had a m/c about 6 years ago around the 12 week mark, I thought that things would get easier after that but it didn't ... not to mention the fact that with twins you never reach that safe mark (as you've all seen), and I had a pretty cruisy pregnancy. So like April said, the only thing I can offer as well is that you live day by day and celebrate every little milestone you reach. As hard as it seems, try not to worry, that only leads to stress (and worse), none of which makes a good environment for your little baby. Positive thoughts are going your way ... for all of you on here!

Well, today's the actual day I started spotting, 10w3d.

I'm really nervous about today especially since it's when things went wrong ... but I was feeling pretty brave this morning and wanted to prove to myself that I'd be okay. So (TMI alert!) we DTD when DF woke up (idk, in my mind, if I didn't bleed after that it's a good sign I won't bleed, kwim?). I didn't see even one drop of blood in the shower or any pink on the TP. That's definitely a relief!

I'm still going nuts checking but that reassured me a little because really ... if I'm going to bleed, you'd think that would get it started, right? At least that's what I'm thinking.
