I am around 6w 4 d pregnant.. my first apt and ultra sound is on the 15th.. and at this point i havent had ANY spotting or anything like that..

But neither have i really felt any pregnancy symptoms.. my boobs arent sore.. i tell myself this is becuz i JUST weaned my 19 month old like probably on the day i conceived! ha...

i THINK ive been more tired than usual.. but this could be becuz i have two kids and we just moved!

i dont feel any sickness..

MAYBE some food aversions?

basically i feel great, and normal!

So i am building myself up for not seeing a heart beat.. its just hard to think positively.. or let myself feel pregnant when the whole time i am thinking there really isnt a growing baby in there at all.. Ill have a blighted ovum.. or a missed miscarriage..

i feel like since ive been through this once.. and have two kids already that ill handle a loss better this time around..

Im just really scared to hope that this will turn out good.. I think if we DO see a healthy beating heart i will sob with relief right there on the table... i hate the waiting!

((Em)) I think we can all understand how you're feeling... I hope your ultrasound rolls around quickly.. there is nothing worse than the time between finding out you're pregnant & the first u/s.... well, for me anyway..

I TOTALLY understand!!! I did have some nausea in weeks 5 and 6 but then week 7....it eased up. Talk about nerve wracking!

My boobs have not hurt this pregnancy!! (I also wondered if it was because my dd had just weaned two months prior...) And unlike last time...my skin is not broken out....

BUT I saw a beautiful HB at 8 1/2 weeks....heard the HB at 10 1/2 weeks and saw baby again on u/s at 10 1/2 weeks just wiggling like CRAZY!!!

So *try* not to worry (I know, right??? Like that is possible!!lol). We are all here for you tho!!

Mama to three and one on the way.

Welcome, EM! We really understand your fear, dread, doubt etc. My m/c was a missed m/c - diagnosed at the first ultrasound, so spotting/bleeding was never my fear. I did cry on the ultrasound table this time around, the heartbeat was soooooo beautiful.

Hang in there - a lot of women in my Dec. DDC have had no symtpoms at all and all have had great ultrasounds.

That first ultra sound is sooo hard. The wait is awful. I know those first few weeks I tried to stay busy. I had about a million projects going on to keep busy (and went shopping a lot)! Oh, and it took forever before my pregnancy symptoms kicked in.

I hope the days fly by and you are staring at your little beans heart beat!
