It's hard being High Risk, as we all know. Does anyone else ever feel resentful of non high-risk pregnant women? I know I do sometimes. I hear friends say they wish they could have as many ultrasounds as me, and I just think "I'd really rather not need them!"
Oh yes I just got out of the hosptal from having my baby who had to stay in the nicu and the girl next to me in the hospital just kept bragging to me about her baby and how they where going home I know thats great for her but it upset me...
I think I feel the same....I am more resentful to myself. When I had DD 10 years ago I had NOTHING wrong with me. Healthy, happy, uneventful pregnancy. And then this one its like you name it I got it or have had to test for it.
It makes me wonder do I really wanna try again or give up at this point. Can I do all this that I did this time again?
I'm not pregnant anymore.. But I had those same feelings with my first pregnancy. But now I look at it as this is the cards that I'm dealt.. Just how life goes, life isn't fair..I just had gestational diabetes, which is vary manageable.. It would be a little different if I had something more serious..
I think it just frustrates me more than anything. My first pregnancy was fine, but then I miscarried my second so my next with my youngest was just fraught with fear, but worked out ok, but then I had another miscarriage, and still had no idea why. Now that I know why and am being treated the way I need to be I have a little hope but I still just don't know if this will happen or if it will all be snatched away from me again.
Loss definitely complicates the picture, I lost my son directly because of my (then undiagnosed) high risk condition, so I think I'm extra resentful as a result. And angry at my body for failing my son, and angry at myself for not realizing I was sick.
