Hi ladies! I posted here a couple times when I was pregnant with my son and here I am back for round two! My name is Jenn and we lost our first little one 4 years ago yesterday. We have since had a little boy, Liam, who turned one this past Saturday. We are expecting again and the timing of this one is almost exactly the same as when I miscarried. I think I'm due August 20 but I'm not sure, I don't have a lmp to go off of since I still nurse my son and we got pregnant my first ovulation after having him, hence, no period. Anyway, I just can't seem to get really excited with this one. Last time I was scared but I was still really excited. I thought I would feel better after I got past yesterday (anniversary of my m/c) but I just don't. I'm still scared to death every second of every day that I'm going to lose this baby too. I don't really have any reason to think anything will go wrong, just a deep down feeling that something is a little...off. I'm constantly sick (have been since I was 3 weeks) so that does give me a little bit of piece of mind, its just, I don't know. I have my first appointment with the midwife tomorrow afternoon and I'm nervous. Ok, now I'm rambling, sorry. I just thought after already having a healthy baby since my m/c I would feel better about everything. Maybe it's just the eery timing of it all. Thanks for letting me vent!
Cautious congrats! I hope things go as well with this one as with Liam. Given that you're newly pg and still nursing, that could contribute to feeling "off". I'm glad you're getting in with your midwife tomorrow. Hopefully that will be a good appointment and give you a more positive feeling for this little one.
