Hi Everyone- I wanted to introduce myself. My name is Josie and DH Jason and I were trying for about 6 months when we got our first BFP in January. I had an early loss (4W5D) and was totally crushed. I wound up pregnant the very next month and am now almost 7 weeks along.

I dealt with my loss by pretending it didnt happen because that was just easiest for me. It made me feel more "normal" and like it was just a fluke. Now that I'm pregnant again of couse I'm terrified I'll start bleeding.

I was wondering if any of you feel superstitious at all? It makes me feel like I'm crazy because I avoid doing any of the same thing I did the first time I got my BFP. Even to the point that there were blinkies and tickers I liked that I wont put in my signature.

Are these feelings rational? I feel a little nuts!

Thanks in advance!

I totally get it. Every little thing that feels different than the first 2 times, I take as a good sign. And I try my best to avoid things (like you said, even blinkies and tickers) that I think will jinx it.

I wasn't going to join the DDC until I'd had my first ultrasound, but I finally caved. I'm a week and a half out from my ultrasound, maybe I'll quit feeling so superstitious if that is successful!

I think that is normal, everyone goes through some sort of "superstition", because it can help to keep us sane!

Sorry about your loss, but congrats on your BFP and welcome to the board!

Sorry about your loss
Yeah, it's normal, we all have "superstition" there is always something that you did with your loss that you won't do now, even if it had nothing to do with your loss. It's what keep us sane.

Congrats on your BFP.

I understand the feeling. I'm just trying to push through it and am trying not to give in to the superstitions. I am, however, giving in to the thought that this pregnancy feels completely different so is going to have a completely different result (one that ends in a healthy baby!).

I'm trying super hard not to read into my dreams to much. I had two glorious baby/pregnancy dreams, but then a dream I miscarried again. That scared the bejeezus out of me!

Welcome Josie on your pregnancy. I agree with the other ladies. I think it's normal as well. Just take things one day at a time. I have everything crossed that this is your rainbow baby!
