I am new here, my name is Rose and I am 6 weeks pregnant (Due 29th December) I am a nervous wreck. My husband and I have been trying for 5 years to have a baby, after our sons birth that is. He is now 5 and a half.
Every ache, twingey cramp I am finding myself over anxious and stressing. My levels are good and had tripled over three days. We have been through so many losses in trying to have one more that this is a very scary time for us. We are trying to leave it up to God and trust him but I find myself pulling it back down and feeding my nerves.

Congratulations! I too just found out I'm about 5 weeks pregnant! Due Jan 1stish...My previous baby was miscarried second trimester this past fall and I have one 2 year old son that we tried for 2 years and lots of fertility measures to have! I understand completely! Especially those first trimester cramp/stretching twinges that come so often that make you think your MF is coming for sure! Hang in there! They say it's normal and more likely even if you've had a child before! My Mom just keeps telling me (you got to love Mom's!) God doesn't allow accidents in his work...there is a reason for everything....just hold onto his hope and claim his peace and deliverance as he promises to us all! The Psalms have really comforted me so far! Dig in, every passage claims God's protection and hope and unending love! ...When I feel overwhelmed with Satan's fear...I verbally out loud claim the blood of Jesus and command Satan to leave my thoughts...and it works a lot! It's a moment by moment process and I know where you're at! :wink:

Thank you everyone,
I still find im on edge with every twinge I got my levels back and they appear to be good. Seeing the midwife tomorrow afternoon for the first time. I am just keeping God in sight and praying that he will look after this baby and me through this pregnancy....

Hi Rose, I'm Rose too.
I know it's easy for someone to say, You should just trust God--you should just have faith that it will all be alright. We want to KNOW it'll be ok. We want to have control because then we know things will turn out right. But Rose, you must change your way of thinking. You must find a way to REST in the Lord. He is in control, so you don't have to be. This is His gift to you! He wants to take care of you, and you must let Him. He's your parent. When you resist His loving arms, you are hurting Him. Just think how you'd feel if your child was hurting and you wanted to comfort him, but he said, "no, Mom, I've got this". Your natural instinct is to protect him and keep him safe. Well that's what God wants for you too. Lean on him. He's your Father! Everything will be alright. His Grace is sufficient. And no matter what happens, God will use it for Good. Trust in that.
I will pray for you.
Your new friend,
