I guess I tend to be a worrier by nature, and so far, I've been doing pretty well not freaking myself out over nothing (well, now that 1st trimester is over) But here I am, wide awake and worrying. I'm 18 weeks pregnant. My loss was before this pregnancy I know I'm probably more tuned into every little cramp/ache/tinge because of the loss, because I know/have seen too much and I'll feel more since this is the 5th time I've been pregnant. I'm up at 1:30 am because I was having sharp, constant lower abdominal pain that just wouldn't go away. It only lasted probaby 30 minutes, but here I am, drinking my 3rd glass of water in 15 minutes, checked my own cervix to make sure it's long/thick closed (it is, and yes, I'm weird, I know), baby is kicking and I'm trying to reassure myself everything is fine. It was probably gas, round ligament pain, or something normal but I was sitting there wondering "are these contractions? they feel sharp, is my uterus tight? what should I do? Of course its the middle of the night" Ugh, this is going to be a long pregnancy. October can't get here soon enough!!

Thanks Jaidynsmum!!
