    I am slowly driving myself mad! You see, every half an hour i am going to the toilet to check my knickers and have a wipe to see if i am bleeding! I feel as if i'm obsessed and i can't stop doing it!I am in my third pregnancy and i have never had complications with my previous pregnancies so i just dont know why i keep doing this! Do any of you do these mad things? Or am i alone on this one :shrug:

    i was that way the first few day after i found out, this is my1st. i know MC is always a possibility, but honestly it doesnt even cross my mind to check. i try not to focus on ANYTHING negative right now, as far as im concerned, this beans here to stay! (knock wood)

    Akira.. I've just noticed that you're 6 weeks and 6 days preggo. The same as me. Yet my due date is 23rd April and yours is 28th? Did your scan tell you otherwise? I'm a bit confused now as to how far I am.

    I try to convince myself that every cramp is it digging in a little deeper or getting itself some room for later!

    I do still check every time I pee though! :dohh:

    I try to tell myself that too, with every little cramp its just little one burrowing in a bit further. My cramps have eased off now though and i have no sane reason to keep checking i am bleeding but i guess we as mothers to be have that instinct to be protective and we will just do these things wont we!! i cant believe i am 6 weeks tommorrow, half way through the first tri xxx

    I used to check because I had a previous MC. However after hearing the heartbeat and being reassured that everything is fine I am much more relaxed. I still check when I pee but I don't run to check. Hang in there... it gets better---and the time does start to go faster once you are more relaxed. I am counting the days until 12 weeks.... 6 more days to go!!

    i do it constantly... but i bled and lost two pregnancies this year.

    i have to stop though, there's no good that can come from seeing it... it's not like i WON'T freak out and there may be no cause to do so.

    I do it constantly. This is due to 2 prev m/c though. I have had a little spotting with this one too which is very worrying. I am going for an early scan on Tuesday. It will be a relief to know either way what is going on.
