Ham1320:  Sometimes I wonder if these doctors have babies of their own. Yours is a man…mine is a youngish woman…I cringe when they say not to worry. We can’t help it! Glad the twinks are doing well πŸ˜‰

Ham1320:  thank you! that’s great news. It’s so hard not to constantly feel worried and anxious. I think the only women who don’t constantly worry are the ones that get pregnant as soon as they start trying and never have to think about infertility or the possibility of a miscarriage…

Roll Call!

Weeks pregnant/due date: 6 weeks/ February 10th

Pregnancy journey: NTNP in February 2015, found out pregnant March 2015, miscarried (blighted ovum) April 29, 2015. Started TTC in November 2015. 

Next appt/test/ultrasound: First appointment on 6/24 with midwife

What are you struggling with: two things: 1.) keeping it a secret because DH prefers that until we’re farther along and tell our families. One of my coworkers is a doula and I want to ask her to be mine again so it’s so hard to keep it in. 2.) believing it will be a viable pregnancy (all signs are good as of now, but you all know how it is).

What helps you: reading other people’s experiences and knowing I can celebrate those little milestones

Share a pic of anything (BFP, ultrasound, pet, funny gif):  This is the announcement we made before our miscarriage (sorry for the large size) … I absolutely love it, but am not sure what to do for a new announcement πŸ™‚

Hi everyone. I am hoping some of you can relate as I have been struggling lately. I am 14w3d and don’t have my next appointment until June 28- my last appointment was June 6, so it’s been hard waiting. I have moments where I feel calm and excited, but in other moments my anxiety kicks in and I think the baby’s is dead. I had 2 previous losses- this is the furthest I have gotten with a pregnancy.

its such a bad feeling and this is harder than I thought. I feel guilty for not being happy about this pregnancy all the time. I remind myself that the baby has been healthy so far and just because there were problems in the past, does not mean it will happen again. I just need this appointment to get here! 

can anyone relate? DH is so happy and I feel my anxiety is ruining this for him sometimes. Thanks everyone!!

mrsm42712:  I’m sorry you are worried. My DH and I are the same, constantly worrying if baby is still okay and struggling to get excited. Maybe it will get easier when we feel them moving all the time?

mrsm42712:  it does get easier. I’m 22 weeks now but I had twins and lost one of them at 9 weeks. Each time  I went for a scan I would be so worried until I saw the heart beat. Everything looked fine at 12 and 20 week scan which was a huge relief. I started to feel movement at 18 weeks which is so exciting, it’s so much easier and less stressful when you can feel your baby moving all the time. I’m just starting to buy things for my baby girl.

mrsm42712:  You are not alone. The first few weeks were REALLY hard…but I have to admit that at 15 weeks, I am still checking for blood every time I go to the bathroom :/ I think about the baby all the time, but my husband and I don’t talk about it much. I think we are both trying to protect our hearts…I did recently get a home Doppler as

arielmerms mentioned. I was scared I would be crazy, but I don’t allow myself to do it more than every other day. It was relatively easy to use and it helps me to know the baby is alive in there!

thanks for the replies everyone! this week is so busy and we made some fun weekend plans so I will be distracted at least until the 28th. I have thought about getting a Doppler but like Arielmemrs said, I think it would cause me more anxiety.

mrsm42712:  I see everyone already replied to you but I just wanted to be another +1 that you are not alone. We’ve all felt that way at some point. For me, the doppler was what kept me sane.

We had our NT scan and baby was looking perfect. Also got our harmony tests back and we are low risk and it’s a girl. So excited to be 13 weeks tomorrow. Woo hoo! Massive milestone for me.
