I feel silly even writting this but i think i could use some prayers to help calm my nerves. I have an ob appointment today, just my normal weight, heartbeat and cervix check. I woke up about 8 times last night thinking about everything she could tell me that is wrong with the baby. At one point i even figured out child care for my kids incase i needed to go to the hospital for steroid shots. Im 24 weeks today and i should be happy not scared. I have no reason for these fears and im just hoping they go away. My appt is at 9 and i will update after it. Thank you ladies so much.
I had my appointment and my little miss is doing great, hr was 158! Im still maintaining my weight and the ob said everything looks good. I am having alot of cramping and braxton hicks so she said to really monitor those closely and from here on out call for everything. She is letting me go 4 weeks until i see her again, she does not want to poke around at anything until then so she said it would be silly to have me come in 2 weeks for basicly nothing. This will be my first 4 weeks stretch this pregnancy. Thank you all for the thoughts and prayer.
I'll say a pray for you Chances are that everything is fine but I do know that sometimes mommies can have a special intuition. Most of the time though I think it is just our minds making things hard for us. Good luck!
Many prayers. I am a worrier too. And can only calm myself by reminding myself that it doesn't help to worry, that the chances of something being wrong are slim and I can handle it even if there were a complication. But I know how you feel.
Keeping you in my thoughts and prayers I have had more worry this week also. I think that since we are all getting closer to our due dates reality starts to really kick in and we think of all the "what ifs". I am sure everything is fine, but I am looking forward to your update that everything is going great

I'm glad everything is ok!
It's totally normal to be worrying right up to the end, especially when you've lost one. Don't feel bad...I have been thinking all those things too, about the baby coming early, I even was contemplating making some preemie cloth diapers just in case...urrgh to have a "normal" pregnancy! Hah! Glad that your OB was able to show you that your little one is doing fine.
