Scared to death!!

Postby 2boyshoping4agirl » Mon Feb 01, 2010 3:32 pm

I just got my BFP yesterday and am scared spitless!! I can't go through another loss, but I know it's out of my control. I'm hoping and praying this one sticks and I bring home a living baby this time. Any tips to not go insane for the next 40 weeks?

Congrats!! So pleased for you, and praying for a sticky little baby!

No tips, I'm clinging desperately to the edge, the only thing keeping me sane, is all the other lovely ladies pregnant with their rainbow babies too, that know exactly how I feel. Hopefully we can all be here for each other throughout the next 9 months!

Thank you! I guess I'll set milestones for now and just work towards meeting those. First is my beta on wednesday. Congrats on your rainbow!

I am terrified as well. People have told me that it gets easier after you start getting further along but that that is NOT the case with me. I am so scared every day I might lose this one too.

Just keep praying and take it one day at a time. I'm waiting for my u/s on the 16th, then if that goes well I'll focus on hearing the hb on doppler at next appt. I think I may relax once I get to the second tri. I surf the boards and try to stay busy so I'm not constantly over thinking everything. Godbless, I hope your bloodwork goes well.

No tips. I've still got 25 more weeks to go and I'm on edge every single day! It's not an easy journey...but a journey none the less. Praying that you have a uneventful healthy 9 months!

Thank you ladies. I made it to my first beta. It's 62 at 12dpIUI, so that's really good and higher than with my angel and her twin. We repeat it on friday. I just hope it continues to rise. I couldn't imagine how hard this ride would be before I got on it. But, I'm taking it a day at a time for now and just setting small goals. Good luck to all of you. I hope your are holding your rainbow in your arms when it's time.

One day at a time, my friend. That's the only way I've survived this far, and will continue to survive past my stillbirth date.

Just dropping in to lend some support (and I suppose look for some myself). I am very newly pregnant. It has been a long struggle since our loss July/08. I am so excited to finally be pregnant again, but after what happened with our first pregnancy, and given the stats for women of my age, I feel I have a double whammy when it comes to being nervous. I am trying so very hard to keep positive. Some times I am bubbling with happiness and feel confident, and then boom all the possible things that could go wrong enter my mind.
Yes, one day at a time is all we can do and be thankful with each milestone we pass. Wishing all the best to all the brave women here!
