Hi ladies! I've been lurking for a week or so on this board while occasionally posting on the March 2014 Moms board.
My name is Brandi. I'm 35 and from the DC area. Was PG for the first time last August, but it ended in missed M/C (blighted ovum) followed by D&C. Obviously, we were devastated and hoped it wasn't an indication of bigger problems. DH and I were thrilled to find out a week and a half ago that we're PG again with a honeymoon baby!
But...I'm finding it really difficult to get very excited until I can at least see a heartbeat on an ultrasound (FX). Add to that, I woke this morning to some brownish-red spotting and now I am full on freaking out. I went for beta #3 yesterday and am pretty much holding my breath until I get the call.
I'm just wondering how you all coped, kept your sanity, and stayed positive during the early weeks? I'd love to draw on your strength right now. Thanks in advance!!
PS - ignore my ticker; we got PG on my first cycle off BCP and I believe I O'd a week later than a textbook cycle. Ticker definitely isn't correct. Beta #1 - 72; beta #2 - 256; beta #3 - ?
