I. Hate. The. First. Trimester...

I have an appointment on Wednesday for a follow up ultrasound. And I am terrified. I was like this all five other times too. I wanna go pee on something....
Ugh. I guess it's just because I don't really have many symptoms or anything. It will be better once I see it blinking on the sono and I can feel baby moving. Until then, I am paranoid. The first trimester is just so fragile.

I'm with you there. I DO feel better now that I've seen the baby's heartbeat, but still, everything worries me- any little cramp, etc. Wednesday will be here soon and then you'll be reassured and feel great- I just know it!!!!:bigarmhug::bigarmhug:

I have my first appointment tomorrow too! I am REALLY nervous also. My husband is afraid of having more than one in there and I am afraid of not having one at all.

Luckily this non-stop queasiness gives me hope.

I am with you! I hate hate hate the first trimester! I am so nervous the whole time!! I hardly have symtoms so that always concerns me but then again I haven't with my other 2 pregnancies. I have to wait until 12 or 13 weeks before I can hear the heartbeat! I am not having any early u/s so it is a LONG wait! Until then I am going to be one nervous nelly! I have to admit I peed on a OPK this afternoon! lol the test line was practically black but I still worry! I can't wait till all of us are out of this first tri!

I agree. I'm also a nervous wreck until I can feel the baby move. I got to see the heartbeat today and asked the NP how soon can I come back to see the heartbeat again. She actually said I could come back next week but I think I can hold out 2 weeks.

I actually prefer morning sickness because I know something is in there making me sick. I wasn't sick, exhausted/tired or any other symptoms with my miscarriages.

I have been such a nervous wreck as well. I had a follow up ultrasound where my RE saw a baby that has grown and had a heartbeat of 152. But he told me that I he/she was measuring a few days behind. I must have looked like hell when he said that because he said right away oooh no don't worry, I can be off by a few days or more. He said as long as there is a good heartbeat I shouldn't worry. YEAH right. I'm a big worry wart now. I have my first OB appt on the 11th and it can't get here soon enough. I am hoping to see my little eggbert via ultrasound again.

I'm so glad to hear that it is not just me. It just doesn't feel real at all. About a year and a half ago, we had an appt with an RE that basically ended my hopes. Now, here I am. I just have this feeling that I am going to wake up and this will have all been a dream! I expected to be happier, but I just can't accept the reality. Weird huh?

I was thinking the same thing while reading. My symptoms this time around have been so minimal compared to last time that most of the time I'm a nervous wreck. My family has gotten to the point where they are wanting me to call the doc to see if there is anything she can give me to calm me down. I have my next appt in two weeks so I think I'll have to put on a smile til then.
