It has taken me 3 years to conceive and now I'm 6 wks pregnant but can't relax, can't sleep or think about anything else! Desperate to get through the first 12 weeks.

I know how you feel, though I've not had to wait anything like as long. This early phase feels like mental torture. Trying to keep busy, but even looking after DD1 or stretched at work I'll suddenly remember I'm pregnant/am I still pregnant/what if I don't stay pregnant/why am I not feeling sick right now.... aaarrggghhh!! Pregnancy insomnia is definitely not helping, too much to worry about at 3am.

How are your symptoms, are they giving you reassurance?

Ive got some symptoms but no sickness yet (thank goodness) I know I feel like if I could sleep the time might pass faster but I'm up all night. Just with it taking so long to conceive I worry this could be my last chance. Need to chip out!!

I am in a similar boat to you OP. It has taken us 2 years to conceive and we had just been told I have a very low AMH and would likely need ivf. I am 6+5 weeks pregnant and have an early pregnancy scan this coming afternoon as I am under the care of fertility at the hospital and have had brown and pink spotting almost continually throughout this pregnancy so far. I am scared to death about what we will or will not see at the scan as I don't know how I will handle any bad news. I so want this pregnancy to be ok. I have had some stretching pains particularly in the lhs but not really pain as such. My HCG was rising normally between 4 and 5 weeks so that was promising. Good luck to you in your pregnancy.
