how do i stop worrying?

Last December i discovered that i was pregnant. It was unplanned but welcome. I was thrilled. I'd heard of people trying for years and felt lucky that I got pregnant without even trying hard. I had no nausea, only very tired. So i took 4 weeks off from work to be on the safer side. But i was very unlucky. At 12 weeks i learnt that I had miscarried. That was an even greater shock than known i was pregnant. Went for a D&C but took 6 months to even think of trying again. Anyways this july we tried again, and i was thrilled to find the positive result. I have done numerable blood tests and an early sonography. The sono was too early (5th week) to show the heartbeat but the gyn insisted just to be sure. I have taken a break from work so that i take zero chances. But i am soooo jittery about my next sono in a week's time which should show the heartbeat. I have all regular symptoms - feeling bloated, cramps, discomfort while changing sides at night, frequent urination - but all that is fine. What i am not able to deal with is the 24X7 worry about miscarrying again. Each time i visit the restroom, am cold with fear. Help!!!


#4 and still no money

Lord I need help, I am pregnant with # 4 with my husband, I have a 10 mo old an almost 3 yr old and a 6 yr old. My 6 ear old just started school and I recently found out that right now I am 4.5 weeks pregnant. The most serious stmptom right now is that my breast and nipples hurt so bad because I am still breastfeeding! My 10 mo. old daughter probably will not wean until she is at least 13 months because that is when my other 2 boys did...but come on...I feel like I am back a the begininng of breastfeeding practically. I have yet to feel the blessings of morning sickness as I know for me it usually starts at 5 weeks and feels like hell at 7 and wont quit until 14 weeks.

My husband and I are still with my parents because we have no money and neither of us has a degree. The job he currently has is unstable and we are looking so hard to move out. Philadelphia is so hard for are hard to get and homes are too expensive. It's so depressing and I have yet to hit the hard stage of this pregnancy...I know I blessed to be fertile but in a situation like this I wish my fertility would quit for a while.

My husband is getting the surgery in a few months...before I have this baby...our gut feeling is it is a boy, but our first step is to tell our parents...I feel like I am in high school again it hurts so bad that a baby is depressing and disappointing...and I hate that we were not more wise in preventing pregnancy until we have enough money...if that is even possible, raising kids is so expensive.

Anyone who is saved/christian and anyone who feels compelled please please please pray for our family that we we somehow find a place and build more stability in our family before this 4th and final baby arrives.


After 3 miscariages we're tryin again

Well after 3 miscarriages in the past 18 months im pregnant again. I've had a 9 week scan because of my history and im terrified that something is going to go wrong. Im not booked for another scan for nearly three weeks which has me scared half to death. Im trying to be optomistic but there is nothing about this pregnancy that differes to the previous three. Im 10 w 6d pregnant. I have sore boobs and im tired but other than that - NOTHING. Nothing is different. No morning sickness or anything. Has anyone else experienced this?


First Pregnancy!! :)

We just found out on September 5 that I am pregnant. My husband and I are extatic about this. We are newleyweds and have known that we wanted to have a child right away. Per the data online the calculation shows that we conceived on the wedding night. Pretty Awesome!! There were definitely no guarantees as to how fast this would happen. As it took some friends of ours a year to get pregnant. We can't wait until the 18th when the doctors appt is scheduled. My husband and I are planning on telling my parents tonight. This will be their first grandchild!! :) It's amazing to read how fast everything is happening. The baby develops at such an increadibly fast rate.
I wish everyone the best of luck in their pregnancy as well as the best of luck to those who are trying!!

P.S. For those who are experiencing symptoms at what stage did you first notice them? How many weeks were you and what symptoms did you have?



I have been trying to get pregnant for the past two months and never thought it would happen so fast. For the past month I have been having cramps and was worried there was something wrong with me. The one thing I was concerned about was not being able to get pregnant.That maybe my body was going through one of the worst thing possible because I missed 2 periods and had 3 negative pregnancy test in the past month.

So I went to the doctors yesterday because my cramps were happening all the time.She didnt really have any answers at all, just that I should take another test.I told her " it's going to be negative,but I will do it anyways". So this time instead of taking a urine test I took a blood test because its more accurate.I called later that day and they didnt have my results and was told to call in 10 minutes.

When I called she said it was positive.I asked her three different times if she was sure and she said yes.I'm still a little shocked and dont think it will actually kick in until I am further along and getting a pregnancy belly.
