Am brand new here - was on a different forum, but hated the way it was laid out so I had to find somewhere new - this looks much better!
In 1997, I was 19 when I got pregnant for the first time. I had an idiot boyfriend at the time (of course, right?) who didn't care about any of it, and at some point (I don't remember details, it was so long ago) I started bleeding some. I was briefly hospitalized and released, and when I was 6 months, I had a stillborn baby girl due to placental abruption.
After gaining a lot of wisdom and finally ending up with the love of my life, I'm finally pregnant again! I am THRILLED, but it all seems so unreal, and I'm a little freaked out. I suppose it didn't help that my doctor told me I might be farther along than I thought, but then it turned out I had a fibroid, and then they had trouble with my first sonogram so they thought it might be a blighted ovum. SHEESH. In any case, I had a sonogram on March 10th and saw my little teeny baby - hurray!!!
I think I'm a bit freaked out too because I don't know why I got the placental abruption, and I don't remember any signs or anything (aside from bleeding) before then.
Am fairly certain I'll feel better as soon as I get to meet my baby
