I am so close to the end, but panicking just like I did in my first trimester. Things have gone so perfect this pregnancy, and I am terrified Corbin will be stillborn. I am seriously as scared as I was in the first trimester, I wake up all through the night to make sure he is still moving. and I get scared if what I am feeling is just fear, or if its instinct. I am terrified it might be instinct and he will in fact be still born. I try to picture him being born and holding him, but its like my mind wont let me. I dont understand why I am freaking out all over again. Right now is when I should be relaxing and just be ready for him to come!

Is this normal?

I just cannot wait til he is in my arms ALIVE and HEALTHY!!!

I think it's normal after all we've been through. I have this fear and I'm just now in my 2nd trimester. Corbin will be here alive and healthy in a few weeks. Until then, we will try to keep you sane honey!

It's most definately normal. (((hugs)))

After everything we've all gone through we're wracked with fear and our minds will wander. WHen we were in the 1st trimester we were afraid of early m/c, 2nd trimester we feared having a bad u/s, in the 3rd trimester we fear late m/c or stillborn, etc. After suffering a loss we lose all sense of innocence and being naive when it comes to being pg.

I know it's easier said than done, but cherish the last few weeks of being pg. I remember missing being pg when I had Makenna. Try to refocus your thoughts on good things and how exciting...you're in the home stretch and will be holding Corbin in a matter of sheer weeks.

Hang in there....you'll have baby boy in your arms in no time!!!

I wish I could give you some advice....I'm pretty sure Corbin will be just fine and will be here before you know it. He will be the cutest healthiest baby boy.

Ah Heather, I know what you mean! I just went to the ER at 1am the other night bc Hayden wasn't moving at a normally very active time for him. I could not get him to wake up and totally flipped out. Everything was fine though, thank God.

It was an awful night and just made me realize how easily I can go from feeling pretty confident to fearing the absolute worst. It's ALL in our heads, and we can be our worst enemies sometimes. I know everything is going to be fine with Corbin, and you will be holding him in just a few weeks hun!! Big HUGS!!

i wish none of us worried like that, but i think it is very normal. when my ob said we could induce at 38 weeks due to my history and my bloodthinners i was so relieved. i was so ready for the scary pregnancy part of all of this to be over with. i got so tired of worrying about everythingthat could go wrong, or worse, that would go wrong.
but it was just fears, not reality. corbin will be here so soon. i think sometimes we worry so much b/c it is hard to believe that our littles ones are finally really going to be here in our arms. at least we get the ultimate prize after having to freak out for nine months.

what they all said.

And I have come to the conclusion that the fear never goes away.

I hope the fear is replaced by joy really soon when that little man is in your arms

Thanks guys so much!! I am really trying to enjoy these last few weeks, Ive been such a ball of emotions, crying at one point because I am so in love with him and feelinghim move around, just pure joy, to being terrified I will never hear him cry.

I think you are all right, its fear, and I am afraid its to good to be true. I am glad I am not alone and I cannot wait til he is in my arms alive and healthy!
