I can't believe that I am almost 17 weeks! It's a miracle. The longest I've carried a living baby was to 6 weeks! It seems so surreal! Every time I go to my DDC and it's the fourth one down I almost cry! I asked for progesterone for 2 years and the Drs kept telling me that it wouldn't help.... After 10 miscarriages, I FINALLY got some progesterone and now look at me! You can't tell me that it doesn't work! This is SO NOT a coincidence!

I am pregnant with a healthy baby boy! I can't believe it! I am going to have a baby in April! It's going to be great. For the most part I feel great and am confident that this is going to happen. However, before every ultrasound I can't help but be terrified that they are going to tell me that he's died.... But they never do!

I'm sorry it took so many losses before your doctors finally gave it to you. But I'm excited things are looking so good! YAY!

I don't think that pre-ultrasound anxiety ever really goes away. I felt it with every one I had with Erin and Patrick too (even though with Patrick most of my ultrasounds were directly after a great NST...still scared the crap out of me)

That's really exciting! I agree with Brittanie, the ultrasound anxiety still hasn't gone and I get nervous everytime even though I feel her daily. I can't wait to see your little boy in april!

aww congrats!! The anxiety over ultrasound never goes away. I always use my doppler to check on baby before an ultrasound so I'm never told my baby doesn't have a heartbeat again.

I'm so glad things are going well for you. I've been following you from TTAL, you got pregnant just a little after me.

I hold my breath at each u/s until I see the hb. I don't think that fear ever goes away.

Erica, I am so happy for you! I agree with the others, even though I see him wiggling on the screen and feel him kicking me, I always have a moment of panic in the few seconds between turning on the volume on the ultrasound machine and actually hearing his hearbeat. I don't think it will go away, ever.

This is just so amazing and I am so happy for you!

Kat.

That's great! So happy for you!

At 35 weeks I still use my doppler. The paranoia never really goes away.
