I am 7 weeks pregnant this week and so excited. I am also scared too. Right before this pregnancy I had a miscarriage. I was 4 weeks 2 days- I know I wasn't very far along but it didn't make my excitement or loss any less. My heart was broken but I knew we would try again- I just never expect to get pregnant so quickly! I didn't even have a cycle in between. Things feel a lot different with this pregnancy- more normal although not always fun lol. I have morning sickness (all day long!), I have to go pee all the time, extreme exhaustion, my breasts hurt and have been growing at an almost alarming rate, basically all of the normal stuff.
Because of my MC my doctor ordered blood work early. Two weeks ago (when I was 5 weeks preg.) my HCG levels were reading at 12,332 with the first blood test, they were going to have me do a second test but after getting those results back they sent me for an US instead that following week. I was so scared that they wouldn't see anything or that they would see something bad but instead everything looked good and we got to hear our little sweat pea's heartbeat. She (or he) had a heart beat of 112 bpm. They told me I was exactly 6 weeks preggers that day.
I am doing my best to stay positive and excited but there is always the thought in my mind that I might loose this little one too. Any time I have any kind of cramps (mostly stomach/digestion and bloating) I worry that I will find blood. It is driving me crazy.
I was wondering if anyone else has gone through a loss and had similar feelings? Did anything help with your fears?
