I'll see a baby in a store, or on TV or wherever and think, Gosh I'd love to have another baby and be pregnant again.

Then I remember oh yea, I am pregnant I guess I am trying to protect myself so much from another later loss that I have not yet accepted this pregnancy. How is that for denial

Thought you ladies might get a laugh out of that.

That is denial... and I'm doing it too even tho my growing belly is forcing me to stop denying it so often. Funny how our minds work to try to protect us...

I know where youre coming from....I still have bouts of denial.

I'm always afraid to tell my dr that I can feel the baby moving. I keep expecting to say "yea, I can feel it move" and then get the u/s or doppler and have the dr say "oh, but something has happened to the baby...."

I have a cheap doppler at home but haven't been able to pick up the heartbeat. Now that I'm further along we might be able to hear it. In the meantime, I keep denying that this time the pregnancy is going to stick.

I love my 3 girls and little boy:

Mom to Jessica - 19 yrs old, Amber - 18 yrs old, Sebastian - 2 months

I don't think I am going through denial.

I am obsessed with this bebe, I bought cloths dollies and a special blanket. I am scared I am going to wake up and it be all gone. I am petrified of losing this bebe, I will go insane I think.

Try not to pretend so much try really hard to know you have a new one. I think I am so worried with being left with nothing once again.

Susan, I know what you mean. The other day a newborn with a small problem came into the unit, and he was so big and cuddly. (most babies I work with are preemies, and dont look like the typical newborn we all invision). I hugged him and held him and told a coworker, Aww, I want a baby! She arched an eyebrow and said, you're having one!


Hehe, we're a weird group, huh?
