Don't want to be a fool

I'm so worried about posting about all my "symptoms" only to be told on Monday that there's nothin' doin' in there. Is it just me? I don't want to talk about how wonderful the symptoms are and then feel like an idiot later. I don't want to embarrass myself.

I just read back in my blog to see if I had written about symptoms with my last two pregnancies. Really, from what I wrote, it sounds like I didn't have a lot of symptoms at all. (Particularly, the pregnancy that only made it to 6 weeks produced almost no symptoms.)

I know I remember being very, very tired during one of my pregnancies, and having a lot of headaches. That must have been my first miscarriage because it's not in my blog. I remember how angry I was that I still felt like crap when I found out the baby had died almost two weeks earlier.

In the last couple of days I've been having some familiar "all-day sickness" that I remember having through the 4th month when I was pregnant with D. Luckily, I don't vomit, but I feel queasy for most of the day some days. I've also had slight headaches, and my boobs are still really sore.

I'm cautiously optimistic (and I didn't really feel that way last time) about my appointment on Monday. I almost want to whisper it when I say... this pregnancy feels like my pregnancy with D...

Don't worry about being a fool. I can't tell you the number of times I've done something stupid and embarrassing.

Besides, I think this baby is sticking around. He or she deserves to be cherished, even if that only means keeping track of feeling yucky.

Please don't feel foolish. We are not here to judge you. We've all been in positions we are not totally comfortable with.

I never had any symptoms with the 2I miscarried and this time I have quite a few. Although they are a comfort, like you I am scared to speak of them openly out of fear. But to be completely honest I have a good feeling about this baby for both of us...as scary as that is to admit.

You're not being foolish by posting your symptoms. I think no matter what happens, you should keep track of things. I have to agree that it's a really good sign to have symptoms. I hope this is the one!

I agree with everyone above - you are not being foolish, we all analyze what is and isn't and posting it can help you keep sane. stay busy this weekend and try to focus on the "optimistic" part of the cautiously optimistic feeling. ;)

I am glad you are feeling cautiously optimistic and that this little one reminds you of your pregnancy with D. That combined with the symptoms... All good signs!
