I had my first ultrasound yesterday just to date the pregnancy. I guess I am not as far along as I thought (baby measured only 9 weeks and I thought I was already 10), but that's not a huge surprise as I wasn't sure of my LMP. I was excited to finally see the baby though, and to see his heartbeat! I have been having a really hard time this pregnancy believing that I am really pregnant for some reason, and that nothing is wrong (just lots of little things, nothing big really!). I actually keep feeling a little surprised to find out I am still pregnant. It's kind of sad really- I hope I stop feeling this way soon. It's my last pregnancy, and I feel pretty good most of the time, I've never really had problems with my other pregnancies, and I want to be able to just enjoy it. Anyway, I am excited and just wanted to share!

I know what you mean. I'm still very cautious about this pregnancy and will be totally relieved when I go to my dating ultrasound. But I definitely feel pregnant thanks to morning sickness. :puke2:

I'm glad I'm not the only one who feels like that.

I get so scared all the time that I'm going to have another m/c and whenever I now look at the u/s pics we got I feel better. Every time I go to the bathroom I check for blood and when cramping happens I have to calm myself down because it scares me. My husband was on a short deployment when I had the m/c (non combat zone) and he just found out there's a good chance they're going to redeploy him in the next few months, missing the birth of our possibly last baby (he wants 3, I want 4). I'm also scared that once we tell people something will happen. But at the same time I want to tell everyone (esp since I'm showing).

Gah so many fears! I think I won't feel better until I get to hold my little one. Although even with all that I've managed to keep my stress level way down. I think my being tired has taken place...I'm too tired to be stressed!!! Ha ha.

Sorry for my rambling, I just needed to get it off my chest.
