Pregnant after a Loss

1st Pregnancy after our loss and NERVOUS

So I just got the BFP a couple days ago and it was confirmed by the drs today (4 1/2 weeks!). I lost my first one in August at 8 wks and we have been trying ever since (despite just having our wedding earlier this month). I am so nervous though!!! Every cramp and every time I stress my body I get this fear that its going to end like the last angel. Any tips or words of advice so I can stop worrying.

 

PS all the updates I see from you ladies about how youre pregnancy is coming along great is awesome and makes me smile

    Congrats and welcome!

    It's normal to be nervous and after a loss there's always going to be some worry.  Sorry I don't have any tips for that.  If it makes you feel better, I'm freaking out too! *LOL*

    Welcome and congratulations on both your LO and your marriage!  It helped me a lot at that stage to remember that this is a different pregnancy and there is no reason to think it would end the same way.  Also, it helped to repeat the PGAL mantra: today I am pregnant and I love my baby. 

    Wishing you a happy, healthy and uneventful 9 months.

    Welcome! There is no secret that makes all the fear go away. I just push the negative out of my brain as much as I can. I'm more nervous now than I was in the 1st trimester since back then I knew there wasn't anything that could be done, and now I just feel much more connected to this LO than any of the other ones for obvious reasons.

    Welcome and Congratulations on your BFP!  It's definitely normal to feel nervous after experiencing a loss, I kept thinking the cramps were a bad sign, but they are totally normal.  I had a lot of weird pains that all worried me so much in the beginning and everything has been going absolutely fine this time.  Being PGAL is so hard sometimes, we are hear for you though!

    I am so sorry for your loss. I also lost my 1st pg in August at 8 wks . Welcome and ini wish you a happy and healthy nine months. :). As for being nervous, I don't think it ever goes away. I am hoping it gets better after the first tri and edp after that 8wk mark for me. I would try to do something that will kind of take your mind off the worry and help you relax like yoga? I'm thinking about it. And I keep telling myself that today I am pregnant and love my baby :) good luck
