Pregnant After Loss
My husband and I found out this past Tuesday that we were pregnant for the third time... as exciting as this should be, I am having an incredible mixture of emotions. You see, both my first and second pregnancy ended in miscarriage...the first in August 2011 and the second in March 2012. I underwent testing and it was determined that there is nothing intrinsically wrong with me, my husband is fine, and those 2 miscarriages occurred for completely natural reasons. Not that that makes it easier, but it is somewhat comforting to know that there is hope. And now the hope is here and I'm unsure how to feel about it. I'm 5 weeks along and I know that the next 6-7 weeks while I'm in my first trimester are going to be filled with a lot of trepidation and cautious excitement. I feel different this time... I'm feeling more symptoms, breast tenderness, intense nausea, fatigue, so I want to think very desperately that this time is different; however, I can't help but be scared. I have shared my miscarriage stories in the group "I Had a Miscarriage" so I won't go on and on about those experiences here; however, I did want to share my excitement and anxiety and get some feedback if possible if anyone else has had a similar experience to mine. Here's to hoping that this pregnancy ends in pure joy and excitement!!!
