This is my 3rd pregnancy. The first ended in miscarriage at 10 wks. I got pregnant again right away but I never worried because I felt very pregnant from day one and had all kinds of symptoms: nausea, cravings, food aversions. I had a healthy baby boy.
This time, I'm not having as much discomfort as last time and I just don't "feel pregnant" yet. That's how I felt the first time, too, so I keep drawing comparisons. I'm only at 5 wks., but I don't want to psych myself out because I do believe that your mental state can affect your baby's development. So I'm trying to dispel my fears, be trusting and confident, and not just assume that this baby will never grow.
How do you keep your fears from getting the best of you? What do you do to keep a positive attitude about your pregnancy?
