I'm 10 weeks today, and I feel like I've passed a huge milestone. We saw the tiny flutter of a heartbeat at 7.5 weeks, and it feels like this has been a strong pregnancy (m/s, extreme fatigue, hormones INSANE, etc.). I had 2 small instances of light brown spotting, and both times it appears it was okay (during the 7-8 weeks, when I guess it's kinda normal). I have some undiagnosed anxiety issues, and I've been doing my damndest not to stress out, but after my miscarriage last year I feel like I'm just walking on eggshells. A former coffee-holic, I've cut my caffeine to a tiny amount or none at all. I don't go over my 180 grams a day, but am slammed with immense guilt if I have a cup of coffee in the morning (1 cup max, then no soda or tea or coffee for the rest of the day). I know I'm just hormonal, stressed, and worried, but I'm just looking for reasons I could miscarry...I'll feel guilt all day about my cup of coffee. Some days I feel so positive and confident, and some days I just wanna cry all do (and sometimes do) because with each passing week, the stakes get higher. At my husband's urging, we made a facebook announcement today, and I've been worried all day. Despite the fact that I HAVE had a miscarriage and have to be gluten free, there's no reason to worry. The absence of any symptoms also sends me into a spiral...like I've not really had tender breasts at all, although I have thrown up like 4 times and am feeling generally pukey throughout the day. If I go a few hours without getting gaggy, I get nervous.
I know this is long and rambling, but you ladies always make me feel better! Anyone else so consumed with worry that it's all they can do? I'm just so in love to this little baby already that I can't imagine suddenly being without it.
