Response to Paranoia! (child ment)
Oh Katherine, I could have written your post. To. A. Tee. I am the same. A complete wreck.
The symptoms will come and go. (I have tried to drill this sentence into my brain). But they will. At 4 weeks I was so constipated I was crying, the gas was excrutiating, but now things have "loosened up" a bit. Of course I am analyzing that too. Things change every day. Yesterday I had sore boobs, today I dont. Yesterday I had no nausea today I do.
I think the best thing I can say without sounding like a hypocrite is knowing that the pains and twinges are mostly normal. Unless you start bleeding super heavy, try and trust that things are ok, that your body is strong and capable. Drink your water, get your rest, don't lift anything too heavy, and keep the faith. DON'T GOOGLE.
I have had 4 miscarriages and here I am again. It is AGONY for me every minute of every day but I try and stay calm, keep myself calm, trust that this will be "it" for us. I tell myself all the time that I am doing everything right, I am doing all the best things for me and this baby- the rest is out of my hands.
It's sad for your friend that had the losses but try and focus on the fact that you are healthy and you are different.
Im sorry I cant be of more help but I do understand how hard it is and what the anxiety is, you arent alone.
PS Dont read "what to expect when youre expecting" I threw mine in the trash, it will make you even more paranoid.
