Thanx @mrsleesey, I'll try xo
I read somewhere...I can't remember exactly what it was but essentially it was: get excited and it is worth getting excited even if you end up having a mc, you may as well enjoy being pregnant and growing a baby while everything seems to be going well. I think a mc would be devastating whether you allow yourself to get excited or not.
I spent all of my pregnancy with ds having anxiety at the back of my mind that I could lose him at any time. While your mc chance is higher before 13 weeks unfortunately some people lose their bub right up until term. 😢
@mrsleesey you can request bloods and a dating scan earlier if you want to. Sometimes a bt is worth it as they can check vit d levels etc as well (I had my iron checked too with ds). Just ask the gp and be specific about what you want. Might be worth the peace of mind.
Thank you @AdornedWithCats - I really needed that!
I might ask the GP for BT too - why not. Most likely will put my mind at ease
Thank you xx but I'm fairly sure it's nothing.
One of the kids at work kept telling everyone I was pregnant today. Such a sh!t stirrer. Would have been in tears if she hadn't made me laugh so much.
I have a few too many drinks when AF has arrived.
Ive had 5 losses all up. My last in january i was 18.5 weeks preg and i lost my little boy due to placental abruption. Its not s common thing that happens. I agree with @AdornedWithCats, enjoy your pregnancy while you can. Unfortunately you cant change anything bad that may happen. Just remember there is alot more good stories then bad
Did you tell her?
I didn't test today-I think I'm accepting it now.
How's everyone else feeling? Any days closer to testing yet?
Pregnant for the first-time?
