One week

It’s been one week/7 days/168 hours/10080 minutes/604800 seconds since finding out we are pregnant. It still seems so surreal.

No one prepared me for the stress and worry that follows a BFP. The last two years I have worried so much about getting pregnant, I never thought about what it would be like to actually be pregnant.

I am so worried there will be no heart beat, or it will be an ectopic pregnant, or I will miscarry. I know normal people worry about this but no one worries as much as someone who has been TTC for a while.

I will feel better after Monday’s appointment. I’ll find out if my numbers are doubling and I’ll get my first ultrasound.

    As someone who was trying for 13 years and then by a miracle got pregnant naturally in January I so know what you mean it was the most nerve racking time. Luckily I had an excellent RE that took bloods every 3 days and marked them super urgent to help allay some fears and then an obstetrician who suggested more frequent visits for me and who also does ultrasounds at each visit so i could feel more at peace! Having hit 14 weeks now I feel a little more relaxed but not much πŸ™‚ it doesn’t really go away unfortunately but it does get a bit better! I just keep thinking this is meant to be and trying to think positive. I have my fingers toes and everything crossed that this is your time too!

    Fingers crossed for you!! I thought the whole first trimester totally sucked emotionally, and I was definitely not prepared for the uncertainty. I only had appointments every ~4-5 weeks, and aside from those brief confirmations, there was no way to know how my baby was doing. It’s tough. Also, be ready for it to take a while to find the heartbeat — or have it not work at all — when they use the Doppler. I had it not work twice, and it gave me a heart attack both times, but the follow-up ultrasound showed everything was fine. There’s another mind-f*ck you don’t need.

    There is nothing you can do now that will change the outcome of your pregnancy. My suggestion is to enjoy it, celebrate it!! It’s not quite time to start buying diapers but getting to this milestone (BFP) is a huge success. Some pregnancies only last a few days to weeks, but they are still pregnancies none-the-less, and a lot of pregnancies are perfectly healthy!!! time will tell what will happen, but today —- you are PREGNANT!!! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚
