    Ok, so I had an abdominal u/s this morning and as I expected, saw nothing but what might have been a gestational sac. The tech was confident, but I am NOT. I don't go in for a vaginal for 2 more days. He dated me at 3 wks 4 days. I don't know but my LMP was Aug 15. He did say that the abdominals can be off by quite a bit. But now I'm freaking out because I'm scared when I get there on Wed. they're either not gonna see anything or they're gonna find it in a tube, like last time. Although last time, I didn't have a positive HPT (I had 3 last week that were very definitely positive) and I started cramping and bleeding by this point last time. None of that this time. So I know it's probably going to be fine and on Wed. I will see a sac waiting for a tadpole, but that's hard to really convince myself of.

    Take a deep breath cg!

    Freaking out won't help, although I think it's entirely appropriate!

    One of my favorite resources on WebMD is this article: Blissing Out: 10 Relaxation Techniques To Reduce Stress On-the-Spot

    Although not specific to pregnancy anxiety, there are some good tools that I frequently use!

    Please let us know how it goes on Wednesday and (((Hugs))) to you!

    Thanks! I know it's probably fine. I was this way with my first, and he's perfect.

    You have a perfect kid?! Give me some tips, cause my 7 year old won't listen to me and my 4 year old just painted her door with red nail polish - ha, ha. I hope you are able to take some deep breaths before Wednesday

    How old is your first? We have some great Parenting Communities here with supportive, smart and funny moms. Let me know and I'll point you to the right one!

    He's 8, and while he's perfectly healthy, I'm fairly certain Dr. Dobson wrote "The Strong-Willed Child" prophetically about my son!!

    I have had absolutely no reason to suspect anything is wrong, other than the fact that I had an ectopic 4 years ago. I'm sure it's fine; I'm only 4 wks 5 days by my LMP so of course an abdominal u/s wouldn't see anything (so says logic to my perfectly illogical and neurotic brain).
