Hey girlies, hope u dont mind if i drop back in and just say a quick Hi!! Hows everyone doing??
Congrats to those who've recently got a BFP! and GL To those waiting..
TSG - i havent had recurrent MC, just the 1....and i never got that bubs tested... But i so totally know where ur at and what ur going through. Take it easy on urself, and trust ur gut feelings. Deep down with my MC i just KNEW something wasnt right... I even said to everyone "I dont feel pregnant" "I Feel like AF is comming"...low and behold, i had MC'd and started spotting a few days later...
Anyways, THIS time... ive just generally been more relaxed and i honestly dont know why. Im putting it down to my instincts...and deep down i know everythings ok, while consciously - i hope it is. I try not to stress over it, and anytime i get a thought in my head, i tell myself NO!! Its not happening... (Then i look down, rub my not-yet-existant preggers belly and say "hope ur ok in there lil 1") and leave it at that, force myself to think of something else.
The one thing ive found that helps is ive broken the first Trimester up into small milestones, and Never think beyond the next, because at 4 or 5 or 6 weeks, thinking "OMG How will i make it to 12wks where im safe" drove me insane, so....heres what ive done:
4wks: BFP, DR app to confirm (and to discuss medication i was on)
6wks: DR app - i wanted reassurance, was hoping for an us on the day but got refferal for US -he put a hold on it till i was close to 10wks -and bloods.
9wks: Ultrasound. Found out i was actually 8.5. but smack on with O date.
10wks: 1st OB appointment
12wks: NT scan - booked in for 14th this month.
It was easier thinking to myself "In 2 weeks i get to....see bubs, see doc, see OB etc" and really helped me. Hope it helps you!
anyways sorry for the 'about me' bit there, Hope everyone is doing well... U gurls were a HUGE support to me when TTC, and just thought id drop in again to say Hi and let ya know i hadnt forgot about u!
