I just learned last week that I was pregnant again (surprise!). I have a nine year old son, but I miscarried before I had him and 4 times after him. My husband and I came to grips that we were going to have an only child. But, here we are today, pregnant again. I am so scared! I am constantly looking for blood. I think that I am about 6 weeks along, but not sure. I haven't been to the doctor yet. Currently, I have no medical insurance because my husband just changed jobs. I am totally freaked out. I am excited about having another baby, but don't want to get my hopes us. My last two prenancies, I was under strict doctor's care, with a bunch of perscriptions, including progesterone inserts and giving myself hepren shots twice a day. I am totally freaking out here!
Any words of encouragement would be greatly appreciated!
Get to the doctor, and follow every step that he or she tells you. Take it easy, as stress causes more problems in pregnancy. I've only been pregnant once, had some spotting issues about 7 or 8 weeks along and until I hit that 20 week mark and saw the gender of my child, I didn't make any plans and I was looking for blood every time I went to the bathroom. So I understand what may go through your mind, especially where you've had so much experience with complications in the past. Take it week by week, go the ER should you feel anything strange. I think it'll just take patience and a lot of deep breaths. I'll be praying for you!
