I am finally pregnant with my second baby!!! It took awhile with this one but it happened. Each day I am noticing how different this pregnancy is from my first. When I was pregnant with my daughter, who is 4 now, I felt perfect. There really is no other way to describe it. I never got sick or had any pain. I had a ton of energy and was really happy. I never really had any big worries, but this pregnancy is the complete opposite. I find myself feeling stressed & nervous. We have wanted a second child for a while. I just dont understand why I am feeling so blah. I feel like I should be ecstatic, u know? or at least happier. I am happy, but I feel so down at the same time. Pretty sure I might be having mood swings. We will see. I am worried about this pregnancy... I am scared to death I will have a miscarriage. I have never had one, so I dont know where that is coming from. My daughter is so excited about us having a baby. She is kissing my belly all the time and talking to the baby. I keep thinking to myself if I have a miscarriage how will I tell my 4 year old daughter??? I know this all sounds crazy & I have no idea why i am having these thoughts nor do I know if it is normal. Hopefully they will go away. All this worrying is driving me crazy.

I am 4 weeks & 1 day pregnant today & for the past 3 days I have been having cramps similar to period cramps. I have been reading it is all normal, but it is still scaring me. WOW, is this pregnancy different than the first. I am guessing that is why I am freaking out. It is all new to me to feel crappy. I am just rambling on, LOL. I have a lot of thoughts going through my head at the same time....

It is very normal!!!  I had period like cramping for awhile.  I am 6 weeks 2 days and now it is gone!  I am also feeling very scared.  I was thinking I was going to miscarry but I have had one before I had my son.  I am not feeling that way anymore cause we saw the heart beating yesterday.  I am just feeling down and very crappy.  I completely understand how you feel.  Keep your head  up and know that it is normal your body goes through so many changes and alot of hormones!!!!!!  Have you went to the doctor yet?  If not let your doctor know how you are feeling.  I know it might you think you will sond crazy if you talk to your doctor but they will understand and give you some advice.  Keep me updated on your progress!  When are you due?

What you are feeling is very normal.  I have had 3 children and each pregnancy was completely different.  A couple of things to keep in mind:  1) you are 5 years older than your last pregnancy - believe it or not, those 5 years can really make a difference on your energy levels and your hormones 2) You tried for so long to get pregnant, you are having anxiety about losing the baby you have waiting so long for 3) with another child, you can't just focus on yourself and the rest you need

Keep your chin up!  You are going to get through!  Focus on your daughter and this will help you get through this difficult time.  Once you get to 12 weeks - you will fell MUCH better.

I too had 2 miscarriages!  The first was April of 09 and the second was the end of June 09.  Yeah i know, my fiance looks at me and i get pregnant.  I am pregnant AGAIN (10 wks this friday)  I am very nervous, but the dr. says it's normal considering my past!  I am also getting a LOT of nausea!  and i get cramps here and there, but i guess that's my uterus growing, i just don't remember all this with my daughter!  
But like they say "every pregnancy is different".
I hope everything turns out ok with you!  keep your head up, even though it seems impossible some days =)
