So I’m 4weeks and 2days pregnant.
So far I haven’t really had any pregnancy symptoms. I wake up every night at 5am having a hot flush and I’m tired but otherwise feel no different to usual. I’ve also been moody however I’m normally moody like this just before my period arrives.
I have however been anxious about everything. Last time I was so excited to finally be pregnant that I never considered miscarriage would happen. I know it happens but I suppose I didn’t think it would happen to me. However this time I’m waiting for something to go wrong.
I have to keep reminding myself that if I hadn’t had ivf and was pregnant naturally then my period would only be two days late and most people wouldn’t have tested yet. Just because I haven’t got morning sickness or anything yet doesn’t mean things are going wrong.
I’m trying my best to be calm and I’m practicing mindfulness every day. I’ve also booked into acupuncture tomorrow so hopefully I can ease some of my anxiety.
My follow up blood test is on Thursday morning which seems like forever away.
