Well, it was pretty uneventful. SInce I'm not having any m/c symptoms and b/c its so early, the doc wants to wait about 2 more weeks so we can be SURE to see the bean. I start seeing the high-risk doctor the following week..

At first I was really really hoping he would do a u/s, but in a way I'm glad he didn't. I would hate for it to be too small to see anything - it would probably freak me out. So I will try to enjoy these next 2 weeks as much as possible.

Still not too much in the symptom dept. I'm eating a lot and tired all the time. I would be lying if I said I weren't constantly checking between my legs looking for blood... I just can't help myself. At this stage in life I have really learned to prepare for the worst. Sounds just awful, dontcha think?

Most importantly, my doc seems very confident. I was afraid I would hear a lot of "Oh its waaaaaay too soon since your last birth - you simply MUST terminate," but no, they were all smiles. Everyone reassured me that nothing would happen, now that they know I'm not the 'perfect' pregnancy I was made out to be last time. I will be watched and monitored like a hawk. Hey, whatever it takes . Plus, my regular OB can deliver me, which is what I wanted. He said the high-risk guys are mostly just there for the pregnancy itself, any doc can deliver me. Which is GREAT because I LOVE my OB.

Despite the paranoia and constant breast-grabbing and crotch-staring, I am feeling optimistic. I have a strong feeling this one is a girl. My EDD is 10/25, which is 3 days after Sebastian was born. I feel like it was trly meant to be, it was a gift from Sebastian and God...

I can't bring myself to join the Oct DDC yet. There's just so much happiness and carefree-ness and naivete - I just feel like I would somehow destroy everything that is right and good about the DDC, me and my dead son. But that's ok - I still have here and the Loss group. Maybe one day I'll be able to talk to my old DDC (Jan 06).

Sorry so long, but WHEW! What a slurry of emotions. Time to get back to Montel's "Polygamous families" expose'.

Just popping in from the Oct DDC to say congratulations and that my thoughts and prayers are with you.

Don't worry about that you might "destroy" anything!! The support there is great, we have a lot of women who have experienced loss and who understand what it does to you.

Come join us whenever you feel up to it, I look forward to seeing you there.

Take care and God Bless.

glad the appt went well & I'm hoping that things continue to go well for you!! I think waiting 2 more weeks for a u/s is a good idea, but I know it'll be hard to wait.

Hey Robyn I'm checking on my gal...you! Glad to hear the first appt went well. I know that you wanted that u/s but like you said, it is probably better so that you can definitely see your little bean and hear that h/b. You are going to be fine! I have good feelings about this one

Hi Sweetie,

I am glad to hear you had a good appointment. I have a tear running down the right side of my face for you. For once it is happy tears. I want so much for you to finally have a little bit of happiness. Sebastian is watching over you and the baby honey.
