Anxious & Scared

My husband and I have been trying to have a baby and found out the great news about a week ago! I am currently @ 5 weeks. I have been having some light spotting. I visited my doctor and he did some blood tests. My HCG levels were @ 34 and doubled as they should to 64 within 2 days. That was 3 days ago. Unfortunately, my spotting has gotten worse over the last couple of days. I'm not cramping nor do I have any pain. This is my first pregnancy and I extremely anxious and scared! My husband left town yesterday for 10 days and I'm feeling very alone right now. I'm wondering if anyone else out there is going through this as well? I'd love to hear from you...



I had a miscarriage back in July. I was really shocked due to the fact that i already have 2 other children, ages 7 and 3. I havne't had my period since July, and i heard that was normal after a miscarriage, but once again i found out i am pregnant again. They are saying that I am 6 weeks along. I am having a hard time getting excited cause im scared im going to lose it again. Im b/f is getting angry cause im not excited.I think that once i am further along i will get more excited but right now im keeping all my emotions inside.


Arti & Tamara

Hello. Just wanted to tell you, you are not alone. I have also had three miscarriages - they all occured within 12 months. That was four years ago.

My husband and I just started recently to have children again. I am about 8 weeks right now, and will be going in for a checkup tomorrow. I am a little nervous, especially since I started bleeding on Sunday, but I can only hang in there and hope for the best.

God will know when the right time is for me to have a baby.


one positive two negative

I had irregular periods before i went on the pill. I recently quit taking the pill. I am 1 week late if i have my period like i did on the pill. I took a home test when i was 3 days late and it said positive. I took a test the next morning and it said negative. I took another test, different brand, the next morning and it said negative. Should i go to the doctor and get tested or should i just wait a little longer and take another test at home?


The greatest feeling in the world!

I had a great pregnancy, no complications at all only some stress due to me hating my clinic. Well I was due to deliver may 2nd and about 2am I felt a small gush of water. Woke my husband up and off we go to the hospital I didn't like, I went there because I was positive this wasn't it. So I stayed there for a while, no dilation, only very mild contractions that I couldn't even feel myself. I was let go at about 6am. I felt fine all day, but the next I told everyone that I wasn't going to go one more day pregnant and I was right. I started to have very noticeable contractions at around 9pm. I just remember feeling like I was trapped I just wanted to be alone walkingall around the house and not knowing what to do. At 12pm I went to bed and woke up at 2am in serious pains. We left for the hospital, (the one I wanted! even though I wasn't a patient there, the took very good care of me and everyone was wonderful. Was admitted promptly. When asked how far my contractions felt I said about 10mins but the said they were at 3mins. When I was 6cm I had to have my water broken since it had not been it last night. ! I got an epidural shortly after and that was heaven! didn't last long though! It wore off often. I had my mother in law and husband there with me. They where being loud and not letting me rest but hey, it was ok. I would dose off every so often and all of the sudden they just say " It's Time!!!" and I'm like "time for what!?" So the nurses propped up my legs on the stirrup things and urged me to push my heart out! they told me I needed to let them know when I was contracting and push, not to look at the monitor. So I did and about some 20mins later my son was born! 8lbs 11oz 20in long. I got to view my son emerging from the birth canal through a mirror too! At that moment, I don't know if it was the drugs or what, but I didn't feel like I had just given birth, like I was in a movie and wasn't happening to me, but later it hit me! I couldn't stop crying and was only so happy that my baby was born healthy and that I had brought him into this world. I had a 2nd degree tear (downwards) and a 1st degree tear (upwards) and I could feel the stitching but it was so well worth it. I now have a beautiful 5 month old boy that is the center of my life. I would go through it 1000 times more just to feel the satisfaction and sense of acomplishment I felt when my son was born.
