Since my big u/s last week, I have been totally freaked out. I don't know if its b/c its another boy or what. But I've been having some very very mild AF cramp-type sensations since then. Just a couple times a day, nothing constant. I have been totally freaked about it. I called my doc and they said it was probably nothing, just drink lost of water, if anything gets painful or regular then to come in. They don't seem too concerned. I'm taking the p17 shots to combat PTL. I'm drinking so much water that I feel submerged. And to top it all off, I have been having crazy dreams/nightmares about Sebastians birth, making it almost impossible to get any good sleep...
I jsut want to know, am I overreacting? Has anyone else experienced these sensations as well?
I remember having those sensations when I was pregnant with my cerclage-my son was born in February. I think that when you experience a second trimester loss as we have we have a tendency to become ultra paranoid and rightfully so. Every little sensation I felt had me about to lose my mind. I was a complete basket case my ENTIRE pregnancy. The words calm down and relax were not a part of my vocabulary. I didn't feel safe in my pregnancy until after my delivery and even then I was still scared because my son was a preemie. My only saving grace was the fact that I had to see my high risk specialist every week so that my cervix could be closely monitored. As a former cerclager, my only advice is to insist on an ultrasound when something doesn't feel right down there to you-even if you don't have an appt. You'd be surprised at the difference a week can make on an incompetent cervix! Take care and feel free to pm me if you need to talk.
Also, congratulation on your son! Boys are so precious to me. I have a boy too (my first child after 3 second trimester losses) and he is a precious MIRACLE. He was a preemie ( ten weeks early) that had NO complications!
I can remember feeling like that during my last pregnancy. I think alot of it was my nerves. After my loss at 20 weeks I was a total nut case during my last pregnancy. With this pregnancy everything has been much different. Even after the cerclage was placed I haven't seemed to drive myself crazy like I did with the first one.
If I were you anytime I had uneasy feelings I would call my dr. During my last pregnancy my dr. was great and was probably one of the main reasons I kept my sanity through the pregnancy.
