OKay how do you do it how do you stay sane these next 8 months let alone the next bagillion years!

I was doing good all day but now as I get tireder and tireder Im starting to get nervous again. I ran out of Wondofos so I cant keep comparing them to feel better and I took an answer tonight cause he wanted to see "a real test with lines" and I mean yeah theres a line there but its still pretty faint and I definitely had to wait the 3 minutes to see it and Im 14 DPO. I see these other progressions, and I hear about these girls in my ddc who tested and it was positive right away and stuff and it just makes me worry.

I know you say its okay everyone is different just stop thinking about it but I cant. I almost had a panic attack tonight cause I was cramping and then I felt a lot of wetness. Thank God it was clear watery cm.

It also doesnt help that I havent seen a doctor yet I think I would feel soo much better if I could and I want to know my HCG numbers and if they are low see them double. But will that even be enough? I guess I just feel like since it was so hard to get pregnant its not as "good" or "strong" a pregnancy even if that is dumb. Also I see so many losses on here and that makes me think about everything that could happen too.

Idk maybe you have some good advice out there but you dont have to say anything profound haha. Just talking about it helps (I hope)

It's normal to feel nervous for a while. Are you getting betas done? That helped for me.

Thank you Vicki!

Ok I am not sure if I am the best person for this because I had 4 miscarriages before Connor. But because of that my entire pregnancy was filled with anxiety, fear, sadness and scary times. So that probably makes me an expert in exactly what you are feeling.

1. It is completely normal to feel what you are feeling. Especially for women who actually have to try to get pregnant.
2. A line is a line and that means you are pregnant. I was told by my acupuncturist that hpts are rarely wrong. If there is a line then you are pregnant. There is TONS of false negatives (testing too early) but false positives don't happen (we think/hope we see lines that are evaps but that is a whole other issue).
3.Seeing a doctor and finding out your numbers might help but not likely. It didn't really help me.
4. Don't feel like you have to stop thinking about it or feel like you shouldn't voice your concerns. Whatever you are feeling is valid and should be dealt with.

Ok done with the list. How did I get through the entire pregnancy. One day at a time. It is all you can do. I will tell you that each day gets a little easier and once you start hitting milestones (first week, first dr. appt, first month, first trimester...) you will feel better. You will feel more secure in your pregnancy. But you will worry from now until forever!

Thanks Chelsea (GraysMama) for my fantastic signature!

Life as it is...

Love your angel babies for making you the person you are!

Completely agree with the pp. I'm still nervous now and i'm almost to the 2nd trimester. What has always helped me is just counting down to each week (every tues I would read about the week in what to expect, now i'm doing it every thurs).

i agree w/ michelle as well. I only had one loss before Tyler but it was enough to keep my paranoid from milestone to milestone, no matter how irrational! I took it from one week to the next...that helped me a lot!! And yes it is normal, and yes everyone is different. We've seen it all here!! You'll be okay!

Have Faith, Expect Miracles

SHHHH!! Don't mention Pregnancy on FB please!!
