Still In Denial Amp Nightmares During Pregnancy

Elizabeth - April 18

Did any of you misbelieve your dr's and the HPTS until you got your first ultrasound? I know I'm pregnant but it still hasn't settled in. I quit smoking the moment I got a positive on my home digital test. Took 2 more digital tests that week at home, both quick positives reading PREGNANT. Went to doctor, they did a quantative hCG test, it came back 140,614. So I'm obviously now about 8 weeks along (a week after the blood test). I go in to the OB-GYN first time tomorrow..boyfriend is coming with me and for some reason I'm worried that despite all this I'm not pregnant... I think I'm afraid to let myself get too excited until I see a heartbeat on an ultrasound etc... And at this point, what does the ob-gyn do on your first visit? I imagine a pelvic exam and order another blood test and possibly a urine test as well to make sure everything is regular and going smoothly..someone told me they may do a transva___al ultrasound to see the gestational sac but I'm not sure about that...they said they wouldn't do an ultrasound until around 11-12 weeks. Just still in denial I think...I have all the signs and all the tests, just still afraid of going into the doctor and them saying "Sorry, everything was wrong, you're just dying" or something to that effect. Also, did anyone else have horrible nightmares during early pregnancy? I've dreamed cannibals are eating me, dinosaurs are hunting me, tornados are striking, and even that my boyfriend's son suffocated our newborn baby when we brought her or him home from the hospital. I'm getting up 5-6 times a night to pee and just because I can't sleep striaght through, even though I am EXHAUSTED and beyond fatigue. I'm also about to finals at college, so that may be adding to my stress which could be triggering my nightmares...just wondered if anyone else experienced such horrible dreams.

Elizabeth....I had the same problems...I'm almost still in denial that I'm 11 weeks and a few days...For me, it just doesn't feel like I've been pregnant long enough for my first trimester to be almost over...At my first ob appointment, they took a urine test, drew blood, did a pelvic exam, pap smear and did a transv____al ultrasound. My husband was there...He said it was awesome to see the baby first...Although I don't think he was too impressed with all the other stuff. LOL...We even got to see baby's heartbeat, which was all I was concerned about. At our next appointment, we'll know the s_x of the baby. At 8 weeks, I'm sure you should see a heart beat, but don't quote me on it. Search this site and look for the stages of pregnancy, you should be able to find out when you'll see a heart beat. And your vivid dreams? Those are SO normal. I can't even take a nap about dreaming about something. Trust me, mine are just as gruesome, gory and very detailed...I even tasted something in one of my dreams that I absolutely dispise! You mentioned getting up to pee in the night. Try limiting your water or liquid intake 2 hours before you go to bed...if you can help it....that might help you pee less at night and allow you to sleep the whole way through.

I have had an u/s already and even heard the heartbeat (10 weeks) and I still don't feel pg. I don't know when it will really set it. I do know that even though this was somewhat planned, I am not excited about it. In fact, I am almost dreading it - does anyone else feel this way? I guess I am just so tired now, I can't imagine what it will be like later and I am not interested in b___stfeeding, but feel pressured to do so, and the thought of labor grosses me out.... AHHHHH! When will this end! Mother nature is so evil. She makes pg looks so wonderful and has us all wanting it and then it happens and you realize that it is noooo picnic!

I am not in denial but i am having nightmares, i woke up last night breathing hard when i dreamt that someone was breaking in. i had a miscarriage in february so i know i have alot of anxiety right now and its giving me bad sleep nights and bad dreams.


NickieDo - April 19

I too felt the same way, I had HORRIBLE nightmares about miscarriage every night for a span of just over 2 weeks. I had dreams of strange people stealing the baby from my womb. It was all very unsettling. But I had my 1st U/S today and the baby is fine! They did my U/S regularly and the baby was positioned perfect. So don't fret too hard, the U/S really eased all of the tension and worry. Good Luck!

Elizabeth, I know the feeling you're having. I am 7 1/2 wks pregnant and I still don't believe it. I went to the doc to get a v____al ultrasound, all was well, but still have a hard time believing it. My husband and I have tried for so long and know that it is finally happening I am scared I am not going to enjoy it b/c it is so surreal. I am scared to do anything b/c I think I will cause a miscarriage. The dreams are just awful and so is the fatigue. I am so excited yet still in such shock! Anyway, congratulations!
