My name is Sharon and I have toliet paper checking OCD!

On Thurs I was feeling really positive. I'd decided I'M doing everything in my power to make sure I dont MC, I'm taking my vits, my prog etc. I'd decided that stressing about something thats out of my hands is only going to make it worse and since I'm not spotting, cramping or whatever that everything was perfect. I also deicded that even though my US on wed was a little early

Oh, Sharon....you know I totally relate! It's so hard to keep those PAL feelings at bay. Wish I had advice for you on that. I've been having a lot of discharge too...so I'm right there with you. I think your little bean is gonna be just fine. Like you said, it's really out of your hands.

Hang in there sweetie. Yes, I agree....PAL brain sucks!

Sorry PAL Brain will get the best of you.
I have been checking TP for CM or spotting for over 1.5 yrs now. I dont know how not to look @ TP. Even in middle of nite when I cant see anything.
I just keep telling myself there is nothing I can do to save anything anyway so I just have to hope & pray for the best.
Usually it works, until I have some weird pain or something, then I freak for awhile.
Im still afraid & too sick to DTD.
*mindy*

I agree PAL brain totally sucks. I am glad you did not have spotting after DTD and hope that you can start to relax and enjoy that again. A normal boring pregnancy would be great. As for the TP checking I still do it hubby is mad because i am up several times a night going pee and still turn on the light to check. He asked me what I was going to do if at 2am it was slightly pink. He pointed out that even if I wanted him to he not going to rush to the hospital at 2am for slightly pink. I guess it does not help that our bathroom does not have a door even though it kind of around the corner from our bedroom the light still shines pretty bright in there.
