I know that it was only a nightmare, but it was so real.

T - I'm so sorry that you're having anxiety about this pregnancy that's translating into your dreams.

Hey T!

I know those dreams all too well, as I had some pretty graphic ones early on too. Thankfully it was limited to the 1T, so obviously the anxiety does decrease over time!

I agree with Kathryn and you are right, faith over fear! Don't let these feelings get the best of you.
I know it is hard, but just keep focusing on each milestone as it comes and eventually those feelings will become less and less frequent. Sure you'll have moments, but reach out for support when they happen.

Take care,

Jenn

Pal brains are the worse. I think we have all had those dreams and woken up with that total panic feel. I am so sorry you area stressed about beta #s but they really are great but I understand I know my PAL

Sorry, I know its tough.
I also had a major m/c dream early on, like I woke up bleeding everywhere. It was awful & I actually woke up in the am & thought it was over. It was so sad.
Its totally normal since it consumes our thoughts for it to enter our dreams.
Hang in there!

That is a lot of pregnancy around you! I definitely know what you mean. I follow up every comment about being pregnant (not that Ive told many) with if we make it that far. Its depressing but also the truth.

When do you get another u/s?

Im counting down the days to 2T. I still wont feel safe then but better.

Hang in there.

I will have my first u/s at 7w5d on Jan. 11 at 11am. I'm terrified! I am so obsessed that my betas doubled in 34 hours the first time and then they slowed to 38.9 hours the second time. Is this normal for so early on
I know what you mean about counting down the days till the 2T! However, this time I am really trying to not think about how far along I am and how much further I have to go. I actually went to Pregnology the other day and plugged in my EDD to find out how far along I was!

I'm sorry that you had such an awful experience after your pap. Has the spotting stopped?

Keep in touch!

As long as betas doubled in 48 hrs you're good. Dont stress on it. I know easier said than done. Thats why I didnt get betas.
Thats good that you havent been keeping track. I know my 'week' starts Wed so I always know roughly, plus I keep looking up to see what is going on inside me..
Good luck on the wait to u/s. They didnt call me today to tell me when my next one is :(
Yes, the bleeding finally stopped. But I still had some 3 days later! If it wasnt for horrid m/s I would have been freaking out more than I was.
