Hi! I am new and scared.

I had a m/c on 10/9/03 I was 6wk3days. My husband and I have been trying since. I was supposd to get my period on the 21st. Guess what it hasn't shown up. BUT I am SCARED to take a pregnancy test. Because I'm scared of losing another child.

I have a five year old and had a good pregnancy. I want this sooooooooo bad. Any advice on how to overcome my fear????

Take that PG test girl. Vibes for a BFP for you. You should get the test done and book a Dr appoinment. They may want to do some test early in PG to see if you need hormone supplements. this may be able to save the baby if there is a problem.

Best of Luck.

Definitely take the test! I found that meditation (or visualization) helped me a lot to try to remain calm. I would sit and imagine a beautiful beach. Hope things work out well for you. I know how stressful it is!

I know it's hard, but test, because only then can you get the medical care, tests, and assurances.

Good luck and let us know how it goes!
