Hi there! I hope you don't mind my taking up some space here to "get it all out."

I tested positive earlier this week and have, quite frankly, been freaking out ever since. How do you cope?

I lost my second and third children at 35 and 20 weeks, so this early part of pregnancy should be a breeze. But NOOOOO...I'm a complete basket-case. Not suicidal or homicidal or anything...I just can not concentrate on anything! And I'm analyzing every symptom (or lack thereof) and convincing myself that something is wrong when I have absolutely no realistic reason to think that. I just can not shut off my brain! I don't feel pregnant, but I can't forget that I'm pregnant...does that make any sense?

Good grief, this is going to be a very long nine months.

Oh honey, I know how you feel! I lost my first at 38w1d. I have been pretty worried this whole pregnancy. How do you cope? One moment at a time. That's all that I can say.

Good luck!
Thanks to babydoll213 for the siggy! My kids' blog Cora's blog

welcome and congrats

sorry to hear about your losses ( I cant imagine what you went through )

I had 3 early stage m/c and I worried about something the whole pregnancy ~ it did start to get easier but I was scared before every appt I would have a panic attack that something would go wrong.

I just tried to take a few deep breaths and just took one day at a time

Hang in there hun!!!

Thank you Brittany for my very pretty siggy!

welcome to the PAL board... congratulations on your pregnancy I know how hard a pregnancy after loss can be - although my losses were both 1st trimester losses, so I don't totally understand what you are going through... but I think the only thing any of us can do, is to take our pregnancys a day at a time, and to try and think positive..... I was convinced my whole pregnancy that I would lose Gaby, but she's now coming up 6 months old

Congrats on your positive!! Being in this forum where everyone knows what it feels like to lose a baby has really helped my cope with my stress and panic attacks. I am so sorry to hear about your losses. I have many of the same feelings that you do. Everything has been perfectly normal but I still can't shake the sense of impending doom at times. I just breathe, and think positive thoughts to get myself through it. Whatever is going to happen is going to happen and worrying is not going to help you at all. That is the one thing I keep telling myself. Everyone here is great so whenever you feel a little crazy or really scared, come here....it really does help. Try to hang in there....
