Just dropping a quick note to let you know I have arrived! (Without the red carpet...not in the budget!)

I discovered my pregnancy about 24 hours ago so I'm still in a bit of shock. I had a miscarriage 5 weeks ago, so this comes right on the heels of that experience. Trying to be optimistic and making a solid effort at not looking at statistics or medical studies!

So you all don't think I am an insomniac, my posts arrive super early because I am in Sweden. :)

Congrats Kristi!

I just read your other post on the EC board & it was written beautifully.

How nice not to need to go through a long drawn out oversought TTC methods after your mc. Although, it may also cause a bit more trepidition as well in that you have not had a lot of healing time either. I've only been on this board for about a week or so myself, but already feel welcomed here.

Everyone seems to understand our fears.

I personally feel pretty positive about this pg. I have my bad days & unfortunately suffer from anxiety so when they are bad I tend to show up here pretty irrational. It usually takes me a night to sleep on it & become excited again.

Congrats again!

Congrats on your pregnancy.... I know you must be especially nervous coming right off an m/c. This is a great place to get support.

Thanks everyone! I really appreciate having a place like this where I can speak my mind. Initially I was all about hopes and happiness, but I have to admit I have some fear knocking on my door now. Guess it can't be avoided, so I am trying to adjust to it's presence and get on with life. Yes, my m/c is very recent so I know that is a big factor. I think once I manage to get into the doctor and get my HcG levels checked I will feel a lot better. And like you Bonnie, I am also capable of nervous rants! I will *try* to keep them to a minimum though... :)

Thanks again for the warm welcome,
