PGAL Checkin - Week of 10/31

I know this is a bit late in the week for this thread but it seems like there are a few of us here that could do with some support.  Show of hands!  I think having a special haven for doubts and fears and anxiety would be great.  It may also help to insulate some of the other threads from our intense feelings.  

-  introduce yourself,
-  tell us how many weeks you got to last time,
-  how are you feeling?
-  Share a distraction/calming technique.

    @Dcwtada hang in there...spotting is def scary when you've been through what you've experienced but spotting can also be totally normal in early pregnancy. Here to support you in whatever capacity a person can via Internet forum. Hugs.

    introduce yourself - I've been a lurker off and on for the past year and a half.  Now at 5 weeks, 3 days and very anxiously waiting an ultrasound on 11/16.

    -  tell us how many weeks you got to last time - our first miscarriage happened at 7 weeks a week before Christmas last year, then we lost our next one at 6 weeks on valentine's day this year.

    -  how are you feeling? - I'm a nervous wreck and I'm trying not to get attached until I know this one wants to stick.

    -  Share a distraction/calming technique. - I love animals and since TTC has been stressful we now foster kittens. We got two new kittens recently which help distract me from my crazy nervous brain!
