I think i have posted maybe 2-3 times on this fourm _Anyways_ I might be wrong so let me give an intro!!
My name is Kristin I have two awesome children Allana (5) And Mikey (2) And Zackary Matthew due 9/11/07... I have had four M/C and have a VERY hard time TTC (with my dd i ttc for over 2yrs, and with my son over 1yr) But when it came to Zack he came with in less then 1mos after i got an IUD removed..BUT come on now i knew it was to good to be true! This last bit of preg has been a fight to keep him put! Im 1cm and 50% .. on FULL bedrest (but let me tell you its HARD) to deal with when you have two over active children!!! .. So right now im taking it day by day knowing every day he stays in me he will be better off!!
Im posting back on this fourm due to a friend just having a stillbirth and dealing with the service and all yesterday has my heart rate up a little more, and me just thinking of all the WHAT IF's and that Zack was so easy to "make" and everything was so good to be true, now the what ifs i have to deal with seeing what i saw yesterday but having it be MY child..
Anyways.. i hope im welcomed and can jump right in .. Waves...
I agree everything comes in waves. After losing a child myself and going through planning services, I would not wish that on anyone. I'm sure your friend was glad that you were there. It is hard not to think the same could happen to you, but it is very rare. You are doing everything to help that little one inside you stay in, so I hope you get to feeling better. Try to find something to keep you busy. I have been reading a ton of books and I think the local librarians hate me!! Best Wishes!
welcome to the board Kristin! I am so sorry for your friends loss - and I can only imagine how hard it is on *you* as well. Whenever I saw something about stillbirth on TV, in a magazine etc etc, while I was pregnant with Gaby - I would immediately drift off & imagine it happening to me.. I think that after you've been effected by such a loss, it's hard not to think about it. My nephew died of SIDS when he was 4 months old, and I still worry about that with my daughter, to the point where I'm obsessed with doing everything I can to lessen the chances of it happening to Gaby......... I probably wouldn't have thought about it so much, had I not been effected by a SIDS loss...
I will be sending Zack lots of STAY PUT VIBES, until at least the end of August! It must be rather hard being on bed rest with two other kiddies running about the place!
I am glad you came over here. I so love the PAL board. I am praying for you and the baby to stay in there tell its the right time. Lots of hugs to you!
