Default Still lingering...

Hello...even though I should probably be on the Due in August board, I am still going to linger here for a little bit.

Long story short...I have had 2 near fainting spells since Saturday. I got nervous today (when the 2nd one happened) that I may be anemic again (like I was with my last pregnancy). When I called the dr, they wanted me to come in for blood work so today they took blood and tomorrow I should know my iron levels AND my beta levels. Last Wednesday they were at 137 so I'm hoping that they have significantly increased by now. I am 4 weeks and 3 days along today.

Of course I am trying my best to relax, but I still have the thoughts/worries of miscarriage. It's so unfair that I have to be so scared when I should be excited about my pregnancy. I know I'll feel better when I get the results tomorrow and then when I have my sono on 1/3.

Anyway, just checking in with you all...not that easy to get rid of me

You're totally normal, Kelly.

We all worry--and you'll be worrying every day for the rest of your life! A new baby comes with worry from the time of the first BFP to your last breath.
