Hey, guys. I know I haven't posted in, like, forever. I've been keeping tabs on all of you though. It's been nice popping in to see what's going on, but I just haven't been able to bring myself to joining in on all the celebrating. I've had a really hard time relaxing and feeling good about this pregnancy. I'm not as excited and happy as I should be. I have my 17 week ultrasound coming up in the morning. I realize now that the reason I've not gotten excited is, in the back of my mind, I expect something to be wrong. If you look at my internet browsing history, it's either cloth diapering websites or late term abortion for medical reasons. I wish I could just be excited like fist time moms are supposed to be, but I can't. It's just not there for me. I'm mainly just scared that the other shoe is waiting to drop.

I understand. I am just now starting to get excited and I am 22 weeks. The innocence is lost when you are pregnant after a loss.

With B1, it wasn't until well past 24 weeks that I started to relax and I still had panic moments when he didn't move enough.

Hugs. I hope you get reassurance tomorrow.

I was just wondering about you the other day. I figured you had moved to the July DDC, but I hadn't gone searching. Glad to see you're still with us! I hope your u/s goes well this morning and you get the reassurance you need about your baby!

I think it's really normal to not want to get too excited. I've had a hard time with it, even though I only knew I was pregnant for a week or so before I miscarried. I am now finally starting to get excited about it, but I still feel like I'm waiting for something to turn up wrong. I say just take it one day at a time, that's what works best for me.

I'm sorry you've had a rough time with the fear and I hope your appointment goes good today. I was thinking about you recently and am glad you're back. Are you having a girl? Or do you know?

Thinking of you and hoping the appt went well and the u/s put your mind more at ease. I have felt the same way this pregnancy and I don't think i will feel "totally okay" until I hit 24 weeks and the baby is considered viable if early labor were to occur.

Miscarriage does take a lot of the joys out of it.

Please let us know how the appt went today.

Hey guys. The ultrasound went really well! Everything looked great. But of course, I opted to go ahead and have the blood screen done as well, so that should come back in about 5 days. It was really cool seeing it move around and wave its little hands. It looked like a skeletor, but it was still reassuring. I'm feeling much more relaxed now.
Thanks so much for your support. You guys are amazing.
We're staying on team green for now! We had the tech write the gender down in an envelope, but we're not looking for the time being. I love surprises.

So glad your u/s went well, that was huge for me with M. Although I still avoided buying stuff and getting organized until well into the third tri when she started practically bruising me with all her kicking and it was all getting very real!! Not to mention the nesting hormones hit. And then I basically went crazy with setting up! Lol. Don't worry hun, when you've had loss and you are a worrier, it takes time to believe it will really happen. Hugs and congrats!!!
