I know I'm such a worry wart right now but I can't help it. I haven't felt Logan move for 3 days so I called the dr. I asked if I could come by just to get fetal tones. They said yes. I went by and they opted to do an ultrasound ( ) love those. Anyways little man is looking great. He was just rolled in a tight little ball. They said he looks great and so do I. I just wish I could quit worring about things. My mom keeps telling me to calm down and relax and quit worring. I can't. Is that wrong?

I worry sick every time I did not feel Alex move, I would drink orange juice, eat chocolate drink something cold, tap on my belly. I do remember that one night I couldn't feel him for about 2 hours I freaked out I started crying thinking that something was wrong and when I was to the point of going to the ER he started kicking my butt. Somehow he knew that I needed him to give me sign that he was ok. Another time I ended up going to L&D because I did not feel him move all day, even when I there he hasn't moving, he had other plans, he wanted to sleep They make us worry way before they come into the world.
I'm glad to got an u/s and got to see your little man.

I love my dr. They are so wonderful! I got the emoticon from another mommy board that I'm a member of. I didn't know it would copy over also.

You are just a mom! I am glad you have such a great dr. Some women aren't so lucky. I am glad that it turned out to be just some "mommy worry" and not anything serious.

By the way, your daughters are both beautiful. I have such compassion for mommies of stillborn children because I know that I can't even imagine the pain and sadness of that kind of loss. Thank you for sharing her with us!

Take care!

First of all, this may sound a little mean, but don't listen to your mom. You can't let what your mom says get to you. I know my mom thought that I should relax too, but um...she has never experienced a stillbirth first hand or a pregnancy afterwards. I had to tell myself this over and over with my mom. She drove me nuts!! I hate when someone told me not to worry, that is impossible to do. You have to do what you feel comfortable doing. I went into the hospital at least twice simply because I didn't feel movement that day. So you did way better than me and you did what you had to do. Its not good to worry during pregnancy, so a little piece of mind is all you needed, now you will be ok until the next freakout moment. Mine came in about 2 weeks spurts. lol

You have a great dr. to give you an u/s too! That always makes it so much easier when your dr. understands. Yay for a great appointment! You did a good job going in. You know I had to think about what would I tell someone on JM with these same issues? It helped keep me sane during my pregnancy. Yay for a good ultrasound!!
Thank you Mistyx5 for my siggy.

It's ok to worry, that's what women do. I know if Norah hasn't moved in 3 hours I start shaking my tummy, having the boys talk to her just to get her to kick me to make me stop.
Glad your little prince is doing good.
