Hi ladies,

I'm very happy (and terrified) to be joining this board. I got my BFP a week and a half ago, very early (10 DPO), and am 5 weeks today. My last pregnancy ended with a D&C after ultrasound at nine weeks showed an anembryonic pregnancy (empty sac). I'm trying not to be too anxious about this pregnancy but it is really very hard not to worry that the same thing will happen again.

My midwife offered an early ultrasound (at 6 weeks) for my mental health benefit, but I've had to reschedule it and now it looks like it will be pushed back at least another week and maybe two more weeks. I'm almost in tears thinking about having to wait another two or three weeks to see the baby and (hopefully) a heartbeat. Until then, this pregnancy doesn't seem real to me, I just can't quite believe that I will end up with a baby. I feel like this must be a common feeling to experience following a loss. Do any of your ladies have any advice on how to get through this waiting period?

Thanks very much, I'm glad to be here!

Wife to Dan
Mama to Finley (5.10.06) and Claire (10.13.09)
