PG after loss
shematt posted:
I saw the + and burst into tears. I had a mc at 8 wks two years ago. This is the first + since then and I am still terrified I will lose this little one :( I know my feelings are totally normal, but still I can't help but feel nervous more than excited...

First of all, sorry for your loss. But congrats on your BFP! I don't think anyone who has ever suffered a loss will ever feel totally normal about it - but that's okay! That's what the ladies here are for! For me, I was sure something was going to happen and was finally able to let my guard down a little at 24w. Even then I still felt like 'something' was going to'll be able to take a deep breath and relax a little when you've got your LO in your arms, then it'll be on to a whole new set of worries. Anywho, CONGRATS and enjoy every minute of this as much as you can! ((((HUGS))))

Congratulations!!!! That is so exciting :)
I understand how you feel. I think I actually felt like at least when I wasn't pg I didn't have to worry about an mc. When I first got the I was almost numb. It was a few weeks before I caught myself talking to the lo. It just popped out one day while I was all alone and I thought, well, so much for trying to not get attached :) Good luck and H&H nine months!

Noelle couldn't have put it better. I was the exact same way. But, as I started reacing milestones, passing up m/c dates, seeing the little bean for the first time on u/s, hearing the heartbeat, etc., you start toget more and more comfortable. I'm now 21w and even back at 18w when I was looking at nursery furniture I confided in my husband, what if I'm jinxing this. What if I order, and we go in for our 20w u/s and something's wrong. While he said he totally understands my fears, everything will be fine, and I just have to believe it. And it is!
Congrats on your and here's to a sticky and healthy 9 months!
