How do you stay positive about the pregnancy (I'm not religious)? I feel bad b/c I feel like I can't get excited until I know there is an actual baby in there. I've even been having nightmares and those don't help!

I have moments of doubting/wondering/stressing too. But then I remind myself that really this is something I have no control over. It's either meant to be or it isn't, and either way I should enjoy every moment I have with this baby.
This is how I try to think. My first pregnancy resulted in a missed miscarriage and by 11 weeks I was not bleeding. Its so hard to feel confident that there is a viable baby in there without seeing it after that. I tell myself that what will be will be abd I have no control over it. You have us to obsess with which is nice

At this point, I can't picture bringing home a living baby next March, but I kind of figure I don't need to picture it yet. Sometimes, it is a good thing pregnancy lasts 9 months - long enough to get used to the idea!
