I happened across this forum in a search for support as I am really struggling. I lost my first pregnancy at 8 1/2 weeks in September but didn't find out until almost 12 weeks. I had a D&C in late Sept and found out two weeks ago I am pregnant again. We had started trying my first normal cycle in January, and it apparently worked.
I am VERY anxious and stressed this time around, obviously. I don't sleep well, I cry a lot and am very uneasy. I have other stressers contributing to this: the fact that I am a step mom to a 12 yr old boy whose mother is NUTS, and might be moving back to her parents place out of state because she can't hold down a job, leaving us with my stepson full time, my sister in law is staying in our 'spare' bedroom, supposed to be our baby's room, for a little over a month now...she seems to take up a lot of hubby's attention, or at least keep it off me and our new, stressful pregnancy.
I just need support, help and listening ears right now I think. I am really struggling with going through the first irritating hormonal and physical changes of early pregnancy. This time the bloating and mood swings aren't fun to go through knowing it is because of a baby. I am afraid there won't be a baby after going through them because there wasn't before.
I'd love to know you are all out there supporting as I am here to support you now.
First ultrasound is a week and a half away on the 15th...
