I have my 1st OB appointment this afternoon and for some reason, this is feeling kinda strange for me. I used to be so excited about going to get ultrasounds and / or sonograms because I'd get to see the heartbeat and see my baby move if only for a little while.
Right now, I'm feeling kinda "meh" about this and I think it's because I no longer have any expectations of a blissful pregnancy. I can't go through this pregnancy feeling like I'm on top of the world; I did it once before and fell pretty hard on my azz. I don't want to do that again. But I also don't want to be SO overly-cautious and worried that I miss the enjoyment of being pregnant.
Just a nervous vent, I guess. And who better to understand than all my sistas here?
Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers during this pregnancy journey. I may need to lean on you moms for some emotional support here and there.
Thank you to Jaidynsmum for my beautiful siggie!

I know I'm not the best to give advice in this situation b/c I haven't been pregnant since losing Katrina, but I know it's perfectly normal for you to be worried and have that uneasy feeling. I totally know what you mean that you don't want to be overly cautious though. I was extremely cautious with Katrina, and I still lost her
And being in our situation, I think we've all lost our innocence of looking forward to going to the OB and doing u/s. Every single time I went to the OB with Katrina, I got nothing but bad news. It took an emotional toll on me and totally affected how I will ever look at being pregnant again in the future. I am sooo extremely excited, yet extremely terrified, for my next pregnancy.
You will be in my thoughts and prayers for this whole journey and I hope nothing but a straight-forward, easy and healthy rest of your pregnancy.

I know how you feel. I get so nervous I puked before our first appointment this pregnancy lol.
I have another today and I'm not even getting an U/S and I'm already nervous.
I really took it easy and enjoyed most of the first trimester but ever since we saw our baby I have been more anxious and worried.
I think the attitudes of the doctors and nurses at our women's center are really helping though. Most of them are extra nice and extra cautious and seem to be extra happy everytime we get a heartbeat or they hear everything is going well. So hopefully your doctors will take extra good care of you and your miracle baby!
