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....
