Worst Nightmare

Tonight I heard about the second missed miscarriage since I found out I was pregnant. In case you don't already know, a missed miscarriage is when you miscarry without any symptoms. In fact, you continue to experience pregnancy symptoms until the fetus is surgically removed from your body.

As you all know, I haven't had an ultrasound yet. For all we know I could have miscarried and we won't find out until September 13th when I go in for my first ultrasound. This is absolutely terrifying to me.

Needless to say, I might be having a few nightmares tonight (and every other night until I actually get to see the little Sea Monkey's heartbeat).

Until next time...


  1. hang in there. It is scary but it'll be okay. I kept taking pregnancy tests until we heard the heartbeat because I was so nervous.

  2. Hey girl! I just wanted to say sorry for not commenting! I've been keeping up with your posts though!

    I have heard of that before but that is a definite scare! I'll be praying everything is fine! Sept 13 isn't too far!

  3. I have this same fear, in fact, I'm terrified of it. One thing that has worked for me, is constant affirmations. They sound corny, and I have never used them before, but I've been really anxious. Several times a day, I silently tell myself that the majority of pregnancies are perfectly healthy. That until someone tells me otherwise, I have a healthy baby. I'm not trying to discourage you from dealing with this very real fear, but when I heard the heartbeat, I was relieved a day. It helped, SURE knowing that there was a heart beating in there. But then my worries transitioned from "What if there is no heartbeat" to "What if the heartbeat has stopped?" So I had to find some way to deal with them without making myself NUTS. I can't wait for you to have your ultrasound! Just a couple more weeks! <3


I always love getting some blog love...
