OK

deeeeep breath

 

Do not think about “what if”. You cannot prepare yourself for everything that may ever happen to you. You can only cross that bridge when you get there. You have gotten through so much before, have some faith in yourself. You’re stronger than you think you are. You can get through anything. If you’re going to think “what if” think “what if everything turns out okay?”

I’m very sorry you’re going through this while your SO is away. Is there someone else you can call to talk to? or call him?

@mallo:  Shoot. Maybe a calling card? Either or, I’m glad you have someone close to you to talk about it. It’s going to sound lame, but actively tell yourself not to play “what if”. I’m so bad for ruminating. I hope everything turns out well for you 🙂

@mallo: I’m not sure if this will help. But my sister last year was trying to get pregnant and had a miscarriage rather late… about 4 months in. The baby stopped growing. It was honestly one of the most awful things I’ve witnessed. Anyways, they said it was due to her uterus being heart-shapped and also that she had a softball sized cist on her ovary. Well, she had to have surgery to remove the cist which ended up being a non-cancerous tumor. Here’s the kicker. 

During this time. When she went under for surgery, was on tons of pain meds, etc. She was actually pregnant by about three weeks. They all said that she might need to prepare herself for another miscarriage, or that the baby might not make it full term. 

While some doctors warnings need to be heeded, my sister went one week overdue and had to be induced. She gave birth to the most beautiful 8lb 0oz baby girl! 

Miracles happen. Even when you don’t expect or want them to! Just keep taking it easy and enjoy the ride for as long as you can! 🙂

@mallo:  I’m really very sorry for everything you  have gone through, but it sounds like your doctors are very on top of your situation, which is a GOOD thing! Just keep faith in your ability to survive and know that the little bean growing in you is half you, with the same strength you have. For me, it is impossible not to play the “what if” game, but like previous posters said, always include “what if everything works out fine” in the scenarios. Just take the pregnancy one day at a time and be greatful that today, you are pregnant. You are right, it is miraculous that you were able to conceive while on BC and with your problems. Congratulations!
