Well I just found out this morning Im due nov 3, we werent trying to concive but Im happy I am but now here comes the fear I dont know if my heart can handle another loss. How do you ladies keep yourselfs from going crazy with worry?[/b]
Hmmm, I didnt think there was a way to not be crazy for the entire 9 months!
I still worry all the time, so I have no advice! I guess just try to enjoy it as much as you can! Good luck and congrats!

Congrats on the BFP. And I have no advice to keep you from going crazy. Just take it one day at a time.

I think we are all crazy with worry at different points. I know I've had my fair share. Welcome and congrats on your BFP!

First of all: A BIG congrats on your pregnancy!! Very exciting!!

Second... I think worry is second nature to us when we've had a m/c. I get through it by passing each milestone. My next is coming up soon & I'm excited about that. Just take it one day at a time.

Congrats!!! I try not to worry. I have good days and bad days. My DH told me we did our part, now it is up to a higher power. I am taking one day at a time. Last week I found out a friend had a m/c and I just cried. Cried for her, and for me. Sounds selfcentered but I could help thinking about it happening to me again. Talking to women in the same boat really helps.

Congrats! I think it's impossible not to worry if you have experienced a previous m/c. There are times that I am terrified about loosing this baby. I try to keep optimistic and that's probably the best any of us can do.

CONGRATS!!! I remember you from other boards and I couldn't be happier for your BFP!!!

Unfortunately, like the others said, I can't really keep from worrying. I'm only recently even remotely excited. It was more exhausting to feign excitement than just about anything I've done. I've just been convinced that this one wasn't going to make it. I hate that I've wasted the entire pregnancy until now being so afraid, not planning, not being excited, and knocking DH down when he would get excited. I'm doing my best now, and am starting to get there. I will worry forever, I know, but I so depserately want to enjoy this, to have fond memories of this pregnancy, the earliest part of my baby's life. THAT is what makes me strive to look for the good and hope for the best. But, like I said, I'm only just now getting to that point...I mean, I'm about 2 days into that.

Good luck and feel free to fret here anytime.

CRIPES!!! How did you sneak by me?!?!?!?!?!

If you were just 3 days earlier we would be in the same DDC! Oh well.... I'm still here for you!

I don't think its possible not to worry. I'm gonna worry until I bring him home I think. But that's why this group is here, KWIM?
