Scared as well

I recently had a miscarriage in July. I was 8 weeks at the time, but I just found out a few weeks ago that I am pregnant again. I am currently 9 weeks. This one was also not planned and it happened sooner then I had anticipated but such is life and I can't help but feel blessed. I am also terrified this time around. My miscariage was the hardest thing I had ever been through. It's hard losing something so precious. I'm scared that something may go wrong. I have only told my immediate family that i'm pregnant once again, but I figure i'll wait until at least 12 weeks to tell everyone else which seems like an eternity, but I also don't want to have to go through the sadness of telling everyone if something were to go wrong. I have a beautiful healthy daughter who is 11 months old and I am so thankful for her. She helped me through the disappointment and she'll never even know it. I'm too nervous to be excited right now but i'm hoping with every week that I continue, my fear will subside and I can start celebrating!!


pregnant or not pregnant

i am getting signs of pregrancy and having all syptoms but all my tests are saying negative i dont know why


Finally pregnant,yet very nervous

After 4+ years of trying to get pregnant and going through a series of tests before attempting in-vitro, I find out I am 6 1/2 weeks pregnant (the natural way). The only reason I found out I was pregnant was due to spotting and painful cramping, after being a week late. I could not believe the test was positive.. I went to the fertility clinic concerned with the painful cramping and spotting and they did an ultrasound and confirmed my pregnancy, however, they were concerned withthe painful cramping and spotting and gave me progesterone suppositories. It has been a week since this happen and I have been spotting here and there. with the cramping still occuring. I am very scared that I will have a miscarriage, yet I heard it is normal for some women to have these symptoms. Has anyone experienced this?


took only 1 month of trying...

I got married in March- and this summer we decided to have a baby. I stopped my birth control and month later- I felt different. I thought I might be pregnant-but was so busy with work, I didn't think about it much. After I was expecting my period to come for over 3 weeks we decided to take a test. TWO LINES we kept saying...yes, it was positive! I have a 9 year old right now. We brought her in and told her, she screamed with excitement!

I started reading books but they just scare me. Every little cramp I get I would get worried. But I feel like everything is fine, I keep exercising, taking my vitamins (2 3x a day helps out with my tummy being upset- they are organic vitamins I got from Vitamin Cottage) and STOPPED reading those books. I also try to eat right- 6 small meals a day and snack on live foods like apples, celery and peanut butter- and dring a lot of orange juice. I am 26 and about 8 weeks along...and I am showing. I need to go buy some new pants!


My TTC story

the ups and down of TTC. IT has been 2 months. Still nothing. Each month i take the answer brand ovulation tests to know what days to try even harder. still nothing. I guess its still early but with my first, i got pregnant in only a month. so 2 months is quite a wait i guess. I was pregnant in july but lost the baby at 7 weeks. i got pregnant within the first try with that baby ...but this TTC experience is beginning to be difficult. I have no health problems. My cycles are very regular each month and for the most part, always has been.
