Worries? (TW - discussing MC)

edited November 2015 in August 2016 Moms
I'm a worrier by nature, so I guess this should come as so surprise to me, but ever since getting my BFP two days ago I just can't stop worrying about having a MC. I've googled "chances of miscarriage by day/week" about a zillion times, and find myself checking for blood every time I go to the bathroom, plus I worry about every little twinge I have.

I know that there is nothing I can do to prevent it from happening, and I just need to let go of these worries and try to breathe a little easier as each day goes by. Is anyone/everyone else suffering from these worries? Any suggestions about how to calm the F down?

  • Don't worry @Hummingbird125. You are not alone! I got my BFP on Nov 19 and I have been doing the same thing. Today, my overall feeling like crap and my cramping has vanished, so I have been a worried mess. On top of it, I have a unicornute uterus and possibly a fibroid so my chances of miscarriage are substantially higher than most. I'm pretty much a wreck. I can't wait for my first ultrasound so at least I'll know something is really in there!

  • @AL_TwinCities - thanks for that link! I was actually looking for it and couldn't find it!

    I will definitely be looking at it every single day. Since I ovulated on a Friday, I plan on finding a way to celebrate every Friday since I'll be hitting a new week then (and since I can't celebrate with happy hour like I used to...)

  • Thank good ness I'm not alone!  Same obsessive thoughts/fears here.  @AL_TwinCities thanks for sharing the link to the chart, that makes me feel better.  I usually do yoga when I'm stressed or my body is achy so I don't know why I haven't done any since my BFP.  I think I'll be looking through youtube for some prenatal yoga to do :)  I like the idea of meditation too.

  • @Hummingbird125 -I do the same things! I'm so scared and an emotional wreck. I think my hubby has had enough but all I want to do is curl up in a ball and have the next few weeks go by quickly. But at the same time @mrsgillham14 is right-this is a momentous journey I should enjoy :) if only I could stop worrying

  • @AL_TwinCities that chart is AMAZING!! And, I love affirmations. I used to do them all the time during the last 3 months of my journey to get pregnant, along with guided meditations I found on you tube. I'm still searching for a new guided meditation to do right before falling asleep. I found one last night that was okay, so if you happen to do these too and have a good recommendation, please let me know!

    I've been underwhelmed by the guided meditations I've found so far. I did like this one the best so far:

    I've heard Circle+Bloom is a good series of meditations for pregnancy, but I haven't bought them yet.

  • My DH tells me that I'm the queen of worrying! I hate that tho and I want to be so excited and I am but then at the same time it's hard not to think about my MC a few months ago. I just want this to be our healthy happy baby so bad! I know at the end of the day that there is nothing I can do about this except enjoy every minute and not worry so much.
  • I feel the same way as you ladies! Glad I'm not the only one. I've even been having bad dreams about it. I will look at the chart you are all talking about and hope that eases the worry a little!

    Oh no! I'm so sorry! Is it heavy red bleeding? Have you called your doctor? They can't do anything to prevent it from happening but they can get your HCG levels and see if they are dropping.

    I'm so sorry to hear this. You should alert your doctor but they probably won't do anything just yet. They can't do anything to prevent a loss and you don't need to go in unless you fill a pad in an hour. At that point, you need to go to the ER. I sincerely hope you are not losing this pregnancy.
  • Best wishes and hugs to you, @meg31il!  I hope it isn't a loss!
  • I'm so sorry, @meg31il! I hope everything ends up ok!

  • I just started bleeding too. No cramps yet, but my only experience with bleeding in pregnancy led to a miscarriage. Not too hopeful right now.

  • I went to Doctor. She did take blood to measure HCG levels. She also did sn ultra sound and saw the beginning of a pregnancy. She said not to count anything out yet but she wasn't too hopeful. I will find out more in 2 days.
  • So sorry @kdhb13!!

    Fx for you @Meg32il! Try to rest over the next two days.  You may have a threatened MC and pelvic rest could help. Certainly can't hurt.
