struggling to hope

I'm not sure why this pregnancy I've struggled so much with trusting the baby is okay. Well, this week my morning sickness has stopped. I was vomiting last week and this week I'm almost feeling normal. 9 weeks today. I've started telling myself I don't expect to hear a heart beat next week Thursday when we go in to listen with the doppler. If we do hear one I will be so overjoyed but I'm SO afraid to hope.

I don't know if it's just pregnancy fears or if I'm really justified to worry about a missed miscarriage. I've had two pregnancies and the nausea was always bad till 13 weeks or longer. I shouldn't base it all on that but this foreboding feeling just won't leave me alone. I really am ready to know one way or the other.

Hugs mama. I am 9 weeks and my nausea has seemed to subside. I have never had it with any of my other four though so it doesn't give me any worries to not have it. Just keep telling yourself it will be ok. I am getting my ultrasound tomorrow.

I am 10 wk, 4 d with my first. I thought something was wrong when I wasn't vomiting. I did at 9 wk 2 d and have three times so far. It'll come back to haunt you probably!

Re: struggling to hope

I really struggled when I was pregnant with DD. I didn't think she would stick as I had complications. I purchased a doppler and it was the best money I ever spent! IF I got worried ... I checked her heartbeat. (I tried to only do it every other day.) It honestly saved my sanity!

Re: struggling to hope

I don't do well with medical related unknowns. With this pregnancy it took some time to sink in and I faked it in terms of confidence and to some extent I'm still faking it (12 weeks now). For example if I wasn't bleeding, cramping or in pain I assumed everything was ok even though the panic in me would flare up and down. If I had seen bleeding (I thought I did a few days ago but it wasn't), cramping or I was in pain then I would be totally freaking out so in the absence of those three I gave myself permission to calm down.

Because this pregnancy is after my first miscarriage my innocence regarding pregnancy is shattered and I have way more anxiety than I ever did with DS and DD. In a previous thread where I mentioned my fears of miscarrying one of the mamas suggested I stopped thinking too far ahead and just enjoy the day or even the hour that I have with this pregnancy and kept doing it one step at a time. That has been really helpful for me.

So in the absence of bad news I assume all is good.

Re: struggling to hope

Thanks for the encouragement and I guess I'm not alone in feeling this way at times. I was really struggling...this week I'm more hopeful even though the nausea hasn't been so bad this week. I am starting to just realize that maybe this pregnancy is just different so to say? Hopefully Thursday we'll have confirmation with the doppler.
