Congratulations!!!! I’m crossing fingers and toes for you that this is a stickey bean. I have a had 2 miscarrages myself and will be starting my fet cycle early next year so I totally understand the anxiety. I know for myself if I get pregnant again I will just try and be positive bc obviously it’s all out of our control. But positive thoughts in my mind are better for me and the baby then stress!! I know that’s easier said then done but now just focus on the fact that you are pregnant!!!! Good luck with every thing and so excited for you!!

Thank you all! I’m so very excited! Going to try my hardest to relax and enjoy this time. I know I need to step away from the sticks, but I’m a POAS addict!

My best advice is to accept that whatever will be, will be no matter how much you worry. Now, I know that’s easier said than done but that’s what I tell myself when I’m nervous during my pregnancy and in between appointments.
Congrats to you and crossing my fingers this one sticks!

As hard as it is, I would highly recommend stepping away from the pee sticks. I drove myself crazy last week with the twice daily testing…my lines appeared to be getting lighter for awhile there, and I just panicked and assumed the worst. I’m still really early (5+1 today), but just got the results of my second HCG blood test and my numbers, while really low compared to most people this far along, are rising normally. So basically, the POAS mania did nothing but stress me out and cause me to catastrophize and drive everyone in my life crazy with my despair. Woof! If you really can’t resist POAS though, try to at least wait 3-4 days between testing – that should show you progression.
This is a crazy ass time and I’m sure it’s so much more difficult and intense when you have a history of losses. I am thinking of you and praying this will be your sticky bean!
