Im Lori, due with my 6th baby! This will be my 2nd. with dh. Im 40yrs old and had three losses prior to my rainbow baby, Mia. This baby was not planned the way Mia was, we were just NTNP due to what we went through mentally to get Mia.

Im 8wks today and have kept myself completely un-atached to this pregnancy. I kind of did the same thing with Mia until we made it through a milestone where I had lost the h/b at 8w4d. Im totally disconnected with this pregnancy, and I dont even feel bad about being this way. Once we see a h/b at my next u/s at 9w1d, I will finally breathe "a little". Im grateful for this pregnancy, but realize at this point (being 40) my risk for m/c or genetic issues is high and I have embraced it and accepted it, making it easier for me to stay disconnected I guess. My hormone levels have been perfect and the baby has measured perfectly to date (we saw the h/b at 6w4d), but I still know anything can go wrong.

Im just praying that my anxiety can stay under control this time around for the sake of my family. I dont think they could go through another pregnancy like Mia's, it would not be fair to them. I still have not told any of my kids/family about this pregnancy, trying to shield them from any heartbrake later.

HI!! I've seen your posts over at TTCAL. Congrats on your pregnancy! I understand the being detached part. It's kind of what I did too in the beginning. But, now, I'm totally invested and into it. Which makes it even scarier. LOL

I hope you have a wonderful and easy 9 months!!

Lori, congratulations and I totally understand how you are keeping some distance right now!!!! It is a good coping mechanism when you can do it. I hope that you will end up with a perfect 2nd rainbow baby and it will all have been quite unnecessary KUP, I hope you get a great h/b next week!!!!!!!

Congrats Lori! welcome back to PAL! I understand the need to distance yourself. I still try to not get my hopes up, and I am 36 weeks!

I hope you get a strong heartbeat at your appointment!
