((Hugs)) Beth, I'm sorry you're feeling this way. I can't say that it's like that for me, but then I only had one loss, prior to the 2nd trimester, and you've had 3 losses now. I would think it would be absolutely normal to feel like you are when you've had to face that kind of grief that many times. Also, I think in our DDC there have been two or three stories the ladies have posted about stillbirths in family members or another DDC. That's enough to make anyone nervous, but to someone who has lost babies in the past, it can really shake your belief that your baby will make it.
Don't feel like a bad mother...like I've heard it said here in PMAL before, you have all the rest of your baby girl's lifetime to bond with her, so even if you don't feel you can really embrace her life at this point, once she is in your arms you can allow yourself to feel that bond and that love. Your body is still lovingly nourishing her, even if your emotions aren't quite where you want them to be.
