I have been absent for a while and I think I have a good reason for this. As of today I am 7 weeks 3 days pregnant! I'm asleep by 8:30-9:00 every night and barely getting my head off a pillow in the morning because I just want to get sick!

As far as my mental state right now, I am scared to death. Having a miscarriage 2 years ago has really done me in. Every little symptom, I'm on the phone to the doctor. I went in for my first official visit and had a sonogram. Heartbeat is strong and there is only one. I had to squeeze into my doctors tonight because I began to spot and cramp this morning and it lasted all day. This is exactly how my miscarriage began so my doctor wanted to see me. I had another sonogram and saw the heartbeating strong again. My doctor told me there was a couple of pockets of fluid (blood) in my cervix caused by where my placenta is placed right now. He says I am not unusual and this is very common. Doesn't make me feel better, still scared to death. I hate the fact that this miracle is happening and I can't get excited about it. I will be so glad when I am over this big hurdle right now and can relax a little more through my second and third trimester. I am very sorry that I have neglected this message board. I truly do appreciate all of you allowing me to vent and you listening. Hopefully I will be able to stay up long enough to make a chat night!!!!

Sending you lots of (((HUGS))) and healthy pregnancy vibes!!
When do you see the doctor again? Keep us updated and you never know when insomnia will hit. I was notorious for having insomnia when I was pg.
Congratulations!!
