So I keep seeing all the ladies I've been close to having their babies and its so exciting to watch but it is kind of scaring me too because I'm so frightened that something can still go wrong and even though I'm getting closer I guess for me its not close enough. We picked out our furniture yesterday and I registered last weekend and now I'm even more terrified of losing him because I'm completely attached. Then to make me worry more (not on purpose of course) my DH says this morning while we're laying in bed, "I feel like your stomach hasn't gotten any bigger recently," so that made me panic now that the baby isn't growing. Will it get any easier or no? I feel like I had a good time in the middle where I wasn't so worried but now I'm back to where I was in the beginning again. Just needed to vent but how did you all get through the end part?

I am just a few weeks ahead of you and I too feel like something could still go wrong even though I feel the baby move and all the tests have come back fine. I think we will continue to worry until we have our little boys in out arms (and then later too).

I wouldn't be too concerned about your belly not growing much over a couple of weeks. I seem to stay the same for weeks and then suddenly it pops out some more. I am sure the baby is growing just fine!

I did this same exact thing. I was okay in the middle, but now I'm a mess again. We don't have that much longer and we'll be holding them!!! Just keep reminding yourself of that. Don't worry about your belly, it will have slow times of growing, then really fast ones that make you feel like you are going to pop because your skin gets so tight.

Be happy that your stomach isnt growing! How nice of DH to say that- all I heard from Rob was how big I was getting and how he couldnt believe I didnt have any stretch marks... not the best thing to say to someone who has gained 30lbs!

I was constantly worried about Erich... even when I didn't need to. I guess I just couldn't turn off the worries.

I used to worry if my belly went a few weeks w/out changing much,... it's normal though. Sometimes you go through growth spurts and sometimse things just seem to stay the same. Try not to worry too much.

I don't think you stop worrying. I remember on the way home from the hospital after Sadie was born I put my hand on my tummy and thought OMG I haven't felt her move in awhile, is everything ok It took me a few days to get used to not worrying about her being in my tummy.
