Congratulations!!! This is wonderful news. I understand your fears. I am so afraid of losing this baby that when I am not at work, I am in my bed. It's like I am afraid to move. Last night I became worried because I did not feel my breast were tender. I thought I lost the baby. I started to freak out, and then talked myself off the ledge, and told GOD, I leave it up to you. There is nothing we can do to remove the fear, except take it one day at a time. Here's to you and me having the most boring pregnancy ever.

Part of me is terrified and part of me is excited. My poor husband is afraid to believe its true and then I end up with AF this weekend. In a way its sad that we can't be as excited as we were the first time, because the fear of it happening again will always lurk, but I still think its the best decision we made. I have a feeling that every little thing will be questioned this time around. He doesnt even want me doing dishes because thats too strenuous in his book.

I hope everyone's pregnancy is completely uneventful!!!!!

Thank you for the website. Those ladies are awesome and so funny.

Took another test today and within 5 minute constraint got a positive, still faint but darker then before. Depending on if my cycle decides to be a 26,27, or 28 day cycle this time, I'm due for AF today, tomorrow, or Friday. If no AF by Friday night, I'll call my OB on Monday for blood work. I dont want to believe it until she says its true.

There is a wonderful website called twoweekwait.com, where women lists all there preconception symptoms. You should check it out and compare your symptoms with the ladies who are also waiting to find out.

You can absolutely trick your self into being pregnant. I know lots of people that have. You just. have to be patient and wait till your missed period to take a pregnancy test.

I thought about tracking my temp too. Problem is I'm not 100% sure what is normal for me. I want to say, with the thermometer I used, it normally reads like 97.6 or 97.7. But when I took it yesterday it was 98.3. I wish I had a better idea of my temps. As red as my face has been these last two days I started to think that maybe I was running a fever, but no fever. I guess I'll find out in a few days. I just don't normally feel like this, or this bad should I say. My normal routine before AF is just some really bad cramping and some bloating. Thats it. Maybe I'm coming down with something and this is just the prelimary signs. I dont know.
