On my first pregnancy 5 years ago I waited until my first OB appointment at 8 weeks thinking I was free and clear because I had no bleeding or serious cramping-- just to find two empty sacs that never developed an embryo. I didn't realize at that time that this was a possibility so I was pretty devastated and surprised to learn I was not actually going to have a baby.
Now, I'm 7 weeks two days and will be going in next Wednesday for my appointment and I can't help but be pessimistic/ weary of the results. I did go on to have a successful pregnancy after that first m/c, but the anxiety of it all never subsides. This feels like the longest month ever waiting! I guess that first experience has tainted my pregnancy emotions forever.
