    Default Finally pregnant and petrified

    Hi Ladies,

    I just found out after months and months of TTC baby #2 I am finally pregnant, Only 5 weeks along but still exciting.

    The only catch is i had one misscarrage before our DS was conceived and a chemical pregnancy a few months back so i am very very scared that I am going to loose this beautiful miracle; I lost approx 25kg about 6 months ago and was fairly slim to start off with and the doctor told me that i am underweight and before TTC again that i needed to put on atleast 5 kg as he said that being underweight and 'unhealthy' could have been a contributing factor.... But then again it may not have I have put on 800g which has been hard work but i am a little worried...... I am intollerant to dairy, wheat, color 102 and MSG so its a bit hard to put weight on using the normal means (i.e protein shakes, Junk foods, take away and chocolate etc)

    DH and I are so happy and excited but trying very hard not to get too excited as we dont want to get our hopes smashed!!

    Thanks for your time!!

    xx

    Woo hoo, congratulations

    I can understand not wanting to get excited too early, especially after what you've been through I'm confident you'll be fine.

    Congratulations!! I can understand your fears - I had a miscarriage at 11 weeks immediately before getting lucky with this bub and I didn't feel comfortable until 21 weeks in. It is a scary time but you have to remember that your body CAN do this, has done it before, and that every mum, whether she has had a miscarriage or not, gets scared and worried right up to the last minute. And as you know, having a child is like letting your heart walk around outside your body, so there is always a little shadow of worry even once they are born.

    But ponder this : "Doubt is a pain too lonely to know that faith is his twin brother" (Kahlil Gibran)

    Do you have a good health food shop near..they would have heaps of ideas about staying healthy with your dietry restrictions. The one near us has alot of non dairy, gluten, wheat free products.
