Hi friends! I've missed coming on this board, but my anxiety about loss just kept me not wanting to touch pregnancy thoughts for a while.    I just got back from the OB and heard the little heartbeat, so my stress level has plummeted for today. I was so nauseated for several weeks there, which I hated, and then it tapered off, which I also hated because I immediately thought the worst.    I'm a little peeved by how I was treated at my OB's.

I wish I could just reach out and squeeze all of your hands! I'm so grateful that each of you has posted, but I'm so sorry that we're going through this fearful time.    This may sound absurd, but over the past day or so I've tried to put the baby out of my mind.

It certainly does not help that I've lost most of my worst, earliest symptoms, which for me...
My one and only pee-strip hasn't faded yet, and so I haven't been able to throw it away yet.
