Things have been going well-I can't believe I'm over four months! Since Saturday, I'm pretty sure I've been feeling the monkey kicking me-particularly when I'm sitting up driving. It feels like a couple jabs in the same spot and then they go away. This is so cool! I see my obgyn on May 1st, and I should have my 20 week ultrasound sometime at the beginning of May. Grow baby grow!
Hey Marie is hopeful and everyone else here...this is my first time here (haven't had the courage so far to go beyond the Oct. DDC..lol) and I didn't know there was a forum for pregnancy after m/c...
To give you all the short version of my story..I have a 27 month old son and am currently 16 weeks pregnant with my second child. This is my third pregnancy, I lost a baby last year at the end of November at being almost 11 weeks, baby stopped developing around 8. Had a natural m/c at home (very painful) after having it confirmed at the ER. Since I got pregnant very fast after the m/c, I am not even sure WHAT i feel...I actually feel kinda numb towards my last pregnancy...I mean the only thing I can think about right now is that I would be 2 months away from giving birth to my baby and I am not.
I know I should be happy about this pregnancy and I really am, but why am I so consumed about thinking what WOULD be at the end of June (we were due with a June bug- June 24th).
I don't think I have really started to deal with the m/c emotions/feelings yet...it seems to work to just suppress it and try to concentrate on this blessed pregnancy that seems to be going sooo well.
Anyhow, sorry for using this thread for my introduction...
Just to atleast relate to the post....I am feeling baby move as well...not very often but when i don't..the home doppler gives me reassurance...its a wonderful feeling and I can't wait for the kicking and punching part in a few weeks to start!!!
I'm too neurotic to own a doppler! Wow-today was my old due date-I didn't realize it until just now. I was too busy working this weekend to think about it-maybe that's a good thing...
Thank you for your replies, Ladies!
