Is anyone else worrying over every little thing? I'm in my first two week wait and I'm getting myself stressed over everything.
I just read up on all of these parasites and toxins that you can have in your blood and you wouldn't even know it but they can be fatal for the foetus or cause brain damage. I never even knew all this stuff existed before!
I'm a natural worrier anyway and it seems like I've just been handed a whole lot of new material hmm

Cupcake, I feel you! It's almost as if the more you know the worse it is!

I started reading a book about baby's first year (being absolutely convinced I was preggo and then getting my AF last week, a few days before it was due) and there can be so many things that go wrong... Then to top it off I watched a documentary about a 5-year-old that got diagnosed with schizophrenia... Not good lol.

I've put the book away as I'm beyond upset that it didn't happen this month yet again and will try to steer clear of too much information. All I can say is let's take it one step at a time... Let's try and get that BFP first.

Quite understandable, absolutely. It's what will make you amazing, protective she-beast mothers.

On the scientific, wholly objective side of thinking, the statistical likelihood of everything being well is vastly higher than the alternative possibilities. Not a guarantee, of course, but hoping it helps just a tiny bit.

Wishing you both the very best.
