this pregnancy is scaring me to death... everyday I wait to feel that little kick to tell me everything is ok. All I do is wonder if everything is going to be ok or am I going to lose this baby too... well for the past few days I have felt nothing ( I think) I want to call the doctor ,but then again I dont want to go in and them tell me the baby died. This is going to be my last pregnancy,because emotionaly I can not longer handle it...

I guess I am just needing some prayers right now that everything is ok...... I am going to call the doc and see what they think

When I was at that point in my PG I wouldn't feel anything unless I laid down for an hour or so and just paid attention. Some days I didn't have an hour to spare so I went the entire day with feeling nothing. I am sure your little one is just fine.... but it can't hurt to give the doc a call and at least get a HB check. It will ease your fears. I had rented a doppler just so I didn't freak out daily. I used that doppler A LOT

PG after loss is hard. I wish I could say it gets easier, but it doesn't the worries just change. It makes you REALLY appreciate the life you are creating though....and will make you an awesome mom

I hope that LO is kicking up a storm soon

I agree with Bobbie, that part in the pregnancy that you are at now is SO scary! It's so hard to be not feeling movement yet, or feeling random movements and nothing consistent. At about 16 weeks for me I'd have periods of days when I wouldn't feel anything and RIGHT as I was about to call and go in, he'd spend an hour dancing and then be quiet again.

Prayers for your little girl and extra ones for your sanity!!
Thanks to babydoll213 for the siggy! My kids' blog Cora's blog

What you are going through is a very scary time..try to celebrate each day. And there is NOTHING wrong with calling your doctor to help you with your fears, and do a heartbeat check.. many prayers for you and you little one!!
Thanks Nami for my beautiful siggy!

well, I want to thank all of you for your incouraging words.. You don't know how much that helps right now . I did end up calling my doctor. If I didn't I was going to make myself sick.. It did not start off so good. She tired to find the heartbeat with the doppler and she said she thought she heard it and the baby just kept moving. So we wanted to do a quick ultrasound to try and pick up the heartbeat. When she left that room my heart just broke . I kept thinking this is what happened last time when I lost our baby... Well.......................... theres a heartbeat. I saw it right away...... Soright now I am thanking god for answering my prayers

I feel the exact same hun. I ended up calling my midwife and going to see her yesterday because paranoia got the better of me and everything was fine. I am glad your baby is ok too. PAL is the hardest thing I have ever had to do xxx

My first weight loss goal is to lose 21lbs, which is 10% of my body weight

I'm so glad you went in and you saw the heartbeat. I couldn't have said it any better than Bobbie, Brittanie and Jen.

Many hugs to you

Mary, I am so glad that you got to see your little girl's heartbeat, and that you got a little extra reasurrance that everything is OK.

Like the other girls said, right now in your pg, it is very hard because you can feel movement, but it is not consistant and that can totally lead to panic. PAL so so very difficult... I hope everything continues to go good for you.
