I am on my 3rd pregnancy in 6 months and feel exactly the same as you. I did everything possible to conceive, charts ovulation tests preseed softcups. I tested furiously for ovulation and the pregnancy. The first pregnancy I was excited, it ended at 5 wks. The second I felt uncertain like reality had kicked in, even had doubts. I lost this one at 7 wks. Each time so desperate for another pregnancy. Now I am pregnant again. I am still testing at least 2 times a day as am worried I will miscarry again. I have to admit my feeling for towards this pregnancy are pretty indifferent. I don't feel excited or connected to it if that makes sense? When I have moments where I 'realise' I am pregnant it makes me panic and cry!! I am trying to reassure myself that this is normal after so many losses and that hormones are also playing a big part. I am relieved to have found your thread as you seem to be in the same position as me!
Maybe we can get happy together as the weeks tick by!!
I was the same- I was so excited to ttc but then felt really quite low when I became pregnant. I felt hormonal and knackered and I felt unable to cope with work and housework. I have however felt a lot better since about 9 weeks and have started to feel excited about the pregnancy. I feel less tired too, which helps.
toothfairy, I would be lying if I said everything is just peachy right now. My morning sickness and vomiting just kicked in a few days ago too. Its hard trying to live a normal life when you are feeling nauseous 24/7, plus having major food aversions! ahhh, but lets hang in there together hun. Today I was able to see the baby on an ultrasound, and it was so amazing. Just gotta keep reminding ourselves that there really is a purpose to all of this, and we are not alone.
are you finding any relief with the morning sickness? this is what is helping me through the day
1.eat something right before bed (like a bowl of cereal, or some apples)
2. sip on cold ginger ale (canada dry is made from real ginger) throughout the day
3. always have something in your stomach. I am eating something all day long, and its been helping.
4. eat whatever ur body tells u to eat. dont worry about fine tuning ur diet just yet. just get some food in you. and keep drinking liquids
5. I heard B6 vitamins are supposed to help with nausea
hope this helps. let me know how things are going with you. HUGS HUGS HUGS. remember lets stay positive together
I am finding a lot of comfort in the fact that you are feeling the same. I don't seem to be able to get in touch with the excited broody feelings I had when trying to conceive.
I have been doing similar to you for the morning sickness. I had first day back at work after a week holiday today and very proud I got through it. I ordered some b6 yesterday so will let you know when I get them! Really glad all was well with your scan.
I am really hoping that hormones are to blame for how we feel? Do you really think they could be?? Big hugs back to you! Take extra care of yourself x x x
Oh yes, please do let me know how the B6 works for you, thank you! after reading what others have replied on this thread, and realizing that alot of woman feel what we are feeling now, I DO believe its our hormones. I also remember my mom once saying that she felt sad during pregnancy, so maybe its genetic too? only a few more weeks of this, and then we should start feeling better again (hopefully ). we will do this together
