During my last pregnancy, everything was fine. I felt movement all the time, and I was finally getting excited! Until 14w3d. I tried to listen to the docs and put into my head that it was normal not to feel constant movement at that point. So when I called and saw the OB at 14w6d and the baby had no heartbeat, I was angry that I hadn't listening to my instinct. The baby stopped growing at 14w3d.
I'm 14w1d now. AND I'M FREAKING THE HELL OUT!!!!!!!
This time my weeks change on the same day as last time. By Friday, I'm going to have no hair, and I'll probably start biting my nails and have none of those either.
If I make it to Tuesday, which is my next appointment, I'm still not sure I can stop feeling like this. I just have a feeling I'm going to build myself up for the biggest letdown yet.
RPL is wretched. It's worse when you KNOW what the problem is, and you take all the necessary precautionary measures (in my case, the lovenox and constant monitoring via u/s) and it still happens like it has the last two times... even into the second trimester.
Thanks, ladies! A friend of mine just sent me a text sending "Strong uterus power" to me. It made me smile, since the norm is "sticky baby vibes" or something similar. In my case, the babes do just fine, it's MY body that sucks.
I've been crampy since yesterday, and I haven't felt the baby today... I might make a trip to the ER, for peace of mind if anything.
I had heartbeat checks 2x a week from 12 weeks until 18 weeks when we had the anatomy scan. I don't blame you for worring. I have had two late losses I understand. See if your dr will do the heartbeat checks on like Tues and Thurs or something to help you get through this time. I hope that everything goes smoothly and that you are both doing great. Thinking of you. I am sure by now you have had your appointment.
