I can't get it out of my head that I'm 'just going to miscarry'... I have no reason to THINK this - I have my symptoms, no spotting etc etc, but I guess it is my mindset, due to my history. I'd love to stop thinking this way, and to think about "when the baby is here...." but I just can't... Blah. I hope the 2nd trimester arrives quickly, I know I'll feel a bit 'safer' then..

It is hard but having faith is key. If you aren't religious, maybe you believe in the laws of attraction/the secret, i.e. putting out negative energy gets negative results. I say that as someone who has had 6 losses and is now 20 weeks pregnant with a healthy baby girl. It is HARD to do, you have to fight your doubts everyday, but do try to believe in the pregnancy. It is important. Good luck to you and feel free to PM me if you ever want to talk about it.

I totally feel this way, especially since I have never even made it to the second trimester. In my mind, pregnancy is a few weeks followed by sadness...

When I was pg with Ds I did expect to mc ALL the time - that is all I knew of pg. Then after him, although I had more losses - each time I wondered instead if "this one" is one we get to take home...I didn't NOT expect to mc - but I was also open & hopeful to the idea that I may not. It can be soooooo hard to stay hopeful in the face of such loss - I am not even sure how to tell someone else to come to terms with that....as it really didn't happen for me until after DS was born...but since then I feel like I KNOW it is possible, so therefor I worry less. Before him I was more at peace with loss & felt at peace, but didn't feel like I would get to bring him home...if that makes sense.
