Does anyone else have a minor freak out in their mind whenever they feel a minor cramp or tugging feeling? Yesterday I kept feeling almost like I pulled a muscle near my pelvis. That's the best way I could describe it because it wasn't really a cramp but I couldn't help but have a minor freak out in my head. I mean, I know that things need to grow and expand and all and that with it will come those minor cramps and tugging feelings but it scares me every darn time!
Ninja, I definitely freak out when I have more cramping or pressure. A couple weeks ago it was so intense I was really worried. I heard 2nd or 3rd pregnancies, the cramping and pressure can be worse. And it definitely has been.
I had my first ultrasound yesterday morning! I was SO worried. I haven't really had much for symptoms, so I was freaking out we wouldn't see a heartbeat. But, I have one beautiful baby in there growing right on target, measuring 8w1d, with a strong heartbeat of 176! The nerves will never go away, but I feel like I can breathe a bit more. I'm still worried, since I have had a MMC in the past, but I'm trying to remain positive and hopeful. Once I can find the heartbeat with my own doppler, I'll be a bit more relieved. I have my next appt in 2.5 weeks for a hb check and prenatal physical, and if they can't find it, they'll send me for an ultrasound immediately.
Hey ladies! Just had my first scan at 6+2. (Never made it this far before!!) everything looked good, measured at 6+1 and saw the little heartbeat flashing away! It was too far from the transducer to get the heart rate, but we could see it flashing clearly on the screen!
Ahhhh! So exciting and such promising news! I am so nervous and eager for my first ultrasound. I feel like that will put my mind a bit more at ease as I never made it to my first scan the first two times. I lost my first two at 6w and 5w. My first scan is on Oct.5th though, so a bit longer to go.
Congrats on the scans ladies! I'm seeing my mw next Thursday and if she isn't able to offer me an early scan then OH and I are going to book one. It'll drive me crazy waiting till 12 weeks worrying otherwise.
hi ladies, mind if i join? we have one beautiful 2.5 year old daughter after ttc and fertility treatments of 2 years. Over the past year, we surprisingly conceived naturally twice but both ended in miscarriage (one at 5 week and another MMC at 9 weeks). So we just did a round of IVF in Aug and found out we are pregnant again - fingers crossed this one sticks! I am 6 weeks along now and EDD around May 19. i will have an u/s appointment on October 4, which will be around 7.5 weeks or so. I wish I could flash forward to 12 weeks and know that all is okay!
amanda & tweak - how wonderful to hear that you both had great u/s appointments!!!!
ughhhhh, I hate the paranoia! This morning I woke up after having a dream(or rather, nightmare) about miscarrying again only to have terrible cramping. Turns out I was just a little constipated. It freaked me out SO MUCH though. With my first mc, I was constipated quite a bit and when I had thought I was just cramping from that, I ended up losing it. I hate being such a nervous wreck. It'll be nice to pass the 6w mark though which is in a few days but my 7w scan can't come soon enough!!! Can Oct 5th come faster, pls?!?!?
I haven't had a miscarriage in awhile, mainly because the last time I was pregnant was almost 4 years ago... but I did have miscarriages in-between my two youngest kids. They were so hard on me, the sting hasn't completely gone away.
So despite being tired, despite no cramping (a little pressure here and there and some tenderness in my back if I sit funny for too long) no spotting, having sore boobs, headaches, and a very dark BFP from the get of (and several following) I still find myself thinking I am going to lose this baby...
Part of the problem is, I am with a new partner and this is his first. It was unplanned... so unplanned in fact he was getting the old 'snip' in a few weeks. However, since finding out, he has been over the moon and I am terrified of disappointing him.
Keep trying to encourage myself, reminding myself that I've never MCed when I got a dark positive and had not spotting... don't know why that isn't enough though. I'm a mess!
Congrats to everyone though, hopefully we all get through this with a happy ending.
