Two losses, two years ago. One at 7 weeks, one at 10 weeks.

Husband and I are still youngish so we were not trying and not preventing.

Last month we made love the fewest times in a long time due to work/family stress. You know how it is. Life happens.

I'd been miserable at my current job and had an interview scheduled for Monday. As a half-joke I said to husband "Let's take a pregnancy test, just to see??" We walk out of Wal-Mart with a cheap Wal-Mart brand test.

I go home and take it... and wouldn't you know it, positive. Three other tests confirmed it as well.

I honestly didn't know if I should interview at new job. I had these thoughts: Is it bad to take a new job being VERY newly pregnant? With my history of losses I was certainly not going to tell the new boss. My deepest, darkest fear was that I'd pass up a wonderful opportunity for professional growth and lose the baby. Not too optimistic, I know. But reality stinks.

So I went on interview, got the job, fantastic.

Have first OB appointment Monday at 3:30. I do not want to lay on the table again. I do not want an ultrasound. I am so so scared.

I go through moments of bliss and joy... looking at baby clothes online.... Then I go through tears and fear. I am trying to "focus on the positive," as that's what is best for the baby.

It's just scary. Real, real scary.

Thanks for letting me share. I don't even know what to tell OB about last period, because I honestly dont remember.

Congratulations on the new peanut and the new job How exciting!!!!

I can completely see why you are so scared...I would be (and have been) too. Fear of the unknown is hard especialy when you have a bad track record like all of us do.

Hang in there mama and take it one day at a time. KUP on how the doctors appointment goes. You are in my T&P's (((HUGS)))

I go to the doctors on Monday at 3:30. That morning will likely drag by like crazy. I am so scared. I read about early miscarriages in the DDC board for when I will be due. I am trying to stay positive and look on the bright side, but it's very scary..

Congrats on your little bean and new job.

Trying to stay positive is extremely hard when you have been there before and know what could happen.

I pray your apt goes well Monday, and every apt after that.
Please keep us posted. Thinking about you!!!
