Tomorrow is my first appt with my High Risk OB. I want to be super positive about this pregnancy but I am SOOOO scared. I had an ultrasound at 6 weeks and saw the heartbeat so I know everything should be okay. I carried a baby full term and have not had a miscarriage before so I really don't know why I am thinking I will hear the worst. This is very odd for me because I have always been one of those ridiculously positive people...honestly it could be raining for days but I will be the person that will think its okay though, think of beautiful the flowers and grass will be when its all over. People honestly would get annoyed with me because I was always happy/positive and would find a positive about anything in life. Until my baby girl went to Heaven instead of coming home with me. Now I am half the positive person I used to be. I still try to remain positive though! My pessimistic attitude in this pregnancy scares me. I want the innocence of it back. I will be sure to update tomorrow after my appt!
I hope your appointment goes really well! I'm sure it will!
I was really positive and hopeful and soooo sure that Roald was okay and that we weren't going to miscarry him. Even the week before I had him I had read about some other women who had had stillborn babies and while I felt awful I felt that if your baby died in utero, something "obvious" would tell you so (such as you'd start bleeding, cramping, etc). But I never had anything of that. I was dumbfounded when I found out he'd been dead inside me for days. So this pregnancy it's really hard to assure myself constantly because I don't want to be too naive again.
I'm just glad it doesn't seem like they've given you a bunch of bull for getting pregnant before they wanted you to. That would have made me nervous because I know some doctors are really pigheaded about their orders. I can't wait to hear your update!
