How is it going?? Are the fears easing any?

We all know how hard the 1st trimester is

Is anything working to ease your fear a little that you might want to share?

For me it was one day at a time
Doing my best to think positive
Ignoring the fact that I was pregnant when I couldn't think positve
Bobbie mom to : Jeremy (23) Amanda (20) Matthew ( 6) and Daniel (4).... RYAN DAVID 1/4/14 8lbs 10oz 20 3/4 inches!!! My miracle happened!

On 1/31/12 at exactly 16 weeks pregnant Noah came too soon.
If you would like to see pictures of my sweet (but tiny) boy they can be viewed at www.caringbridge.org/visit/noahdarrohn they aren't the easiest pictures to look at but I am willing to share them with anyone who would like to see them <3
On August 2, 2012 we lost Sarah at 17 weeks. Her pictures can be viewed at http://www.caringbridge.org/visit/sarahdarrohn
There is no known explanation for my losses.

I am still scared but i am trying to push this far out...i am not as scared as I was yesterday.

I am a positive thinking person so now I decided to double my positiveness... My spiritual practice has helped me a lot. Thanking nature for my PG every day!! I also look up some positive phrases daily and think about them..

I am enjoying one day at a time.. I am doing all i can to prevent another m/c.. so it's just one day at a time for me..and I am trying to enjoy it

Thinking that Prometrium and baby aspirin is my personal "magical" medicine and that since I never used them before and had m/c.. they are going to help this baby!

Counting days till my first u/s

I try to stay in bed as much as I can since i made myself believe that it can help me keep the baby. According to the doctors from my home country... I like to research both American and European doctor findings), staying in the bed can helps since we create abdominal pressure while walking around... I try to go to bed several times a day for at least 20 minutes at a time..It cannot harm anything but what if it helps? I am willing to do anything to keep this baby!

Since having my u/s and getting confirmation that there is a heartbeat I'm much more relaxed. Plus, I'm having a lot of symptoms that I never had with my last pregnancy and that eases my mind a lot too. I'm sure that I will relax even more after my 12 week scan. For now I'm trying to take it one day at a time.

It helped hearing the heartbeat on Thursday but every little cramp that I feel I start worrying again that I am going to lose this baby. I bought him/her a little sleeper already .I am starting to get more excited for this pregnancy since this was not planned.I think I will feel a little better when I am over 12 weeks. Man that is still 5 weeks away

I am more at ease after hearing a heartbeat but my 2nd m/c happened after hearing a heartbeat. I have another u/s on wed and when I hear a strong heartbeat I will feel more at ease then. I still am going to be a nervous wreck for most of the first trimester since I won't feel at ease until we get good results from the NT scan. I will always be scared that all of our babies will have trisomy 18

I'm not too worried anymore. We have seen the heartbeat on one of the twins and the DR already said twin #2 isn't going to make it. I'm trying to focus on the positive though. Both of my losses were very early, so I think that makes it easier to calm down once the heartbeat is seen.
I have an ultrasound next Friday at 8w3d and if I make it through that one, I will be fine.

ugh hate to say it, but I don't envy any of you in the 1st trimester - I think it's by far the hardest part of pregnancy, particularly after a previous loss... I hope the time flies for all of you & you can be feeling little baby kicks, before you know it!

I'm doing ok. I have my NT scan next tuesday. Some of my symptoms are starting to get better. I haven't thrown up this week and tonight after I showered I realized my boobs weren't on fire like they have been. I'm also feeling flutters so that's helping.

I lost my son at 36 weeks so while Ive been nervous I wasn't as worried about early m/c. I'm a little freaked out about the genetic testing because we didn't do that with my last pg and we still have no answers as far as what happened.

I'm hoping for a good second trimester because lord knows I will be a hot mess during my third.

I'm trying to enjoy every day but I will be nervous until we see the heartbeat. I have an appointment next Tuesday to put together a game plan of when to do an ultrasound or if I want beta's done. My last ultrasound experience was so traumatic so I'm going to do my best to be as patient as possible so we can wait until there will definitely be a heart beat and a little bean to see. I will be six weeks tomorrow and the last thing I want to do is have an ultrasound too early and see nothing. That would send me right over the edge.

I still have one week to go before my first appointment. I have gotten past the point of my previous loss though, so that makes me feel a little better. Also I've been having some symptoms that were not present last time so I have high hopes at this time.

We shall see on the 27th if they find a heartbeat and then I'll feel MUCH better.

I had been doing great until I scheduled my first appt and then it hit me. Im sure I'll feel better once I see baby's heartbeat and see that baby is implanted in a good spot. I think I'll feel better once I can feel the baby move. I'm trying to focus on the positives and keep busy with things.
