It's really good to hear your encouraging words. I will stay as calm and mellow as possible, but truly, I think it's easier if I pretend there's nothing happening. Maggie, I like your suggestion of connecting with the embryo, but it's too hard for me at this stage. I stopped doing that after my first miscarriage, and it turned out to be a good thing, as I had more losses right after that. I was devastated after that first miscarriage, and although the next three were tough, they would have been much worse if I hadn't been a little detached out of self-protection.
I'll take your advice to stay positive, but I think the connecting will be easier after / if we make it out of the first trimester.
Hope2009, I hear what you're saying about never being able to truly relax because you're always watching out for this little being who is completely dependent on you.
Leigh and smrc, congratulations on your pregnancies! I hope the rest of your pregnancies are happy and healthy.
