    I recently found out while getting tests for a kidney infection that I am pregnant again after miscarrying in October.

    I go through moments where I am very confident despite that my HCG levels are rising, but aren't all that high.. (I am only 4 weeks and 3 days and I am pretty sure I ovulated on the 10th.) The blood test was 28 two days before my period was due, and 49 the day it was missed.

    The worst thing I find is the nightmares I am getting. It seems every time I fall asleep I dream about waking up and finding blood. It happens over and over.. sometimes multiple times in the same dream or sleep. My fiance has woken me up because I would cry out loud.

    Has anyone else had this as a consistent problem? To the point where they are afraid of going to sleep despite being exhausted? My dreams are so vivid...sometimes I wake up and wonder what it real and if I lost the baby.

    Does anyone have any tips to get rid of these?

    I don't know if there is a way to get rid of them but I do have these dreams a lot. I also get other nightmares (family dying, etc) but I think that's a preggo symptom. So maybe, it's a good sign?

    Yeah... I am hoping that despite the trauma involved the vidid dreams are a good sign. Bah, though.

    Thanks for the encouragement!

    I had that for quite a while. I've had two miscarriages, and am on my third pregnancy. After my first miscarriage, the nightmares were really bad...the second miscarriage I was afraid to sleep at night after. ESPECIALLY when I found out I was pregnant again only...4-5 months later...

    They went away after I hit 16-17 weeks, but now that I've hit the 3rd Trimester, they're beginning to get quite bad again, between miscarriage dreams and dreams about me and OH not making it...

    I totally understand what you're going through though. If you need a 'buddy' to chat with either on here or via text/phone, please, message me!!! I would be very happy to be your buddy
