I don't feel like I'm going to bring this baby home. I'm trying so hard to protect my heart but in spite of myself, each day and each little bump makes me more attached, and I'm just waiting for the other shoe to drop. I'm waiting for the bad news.

Ugh, I hate this. I'm starting to feel Skittles a little more (every day at least, now) and I'm supposed to be happy about it. And I am, don't get me wrong, but I'm so so so so scared too.

I wish there was a point I could just relax and enjoy this.

Your situation is completely different than Jess's! Of course you're still scared!! Are they going to do extra u/s's or anything so they can keep a better eye on the cord?

I don't blame you for being scared. Hell, I'd be terrified! And the sad fact is, you're probably going to be scared until the baby is born. How could you not be? I hope your doc is doing something that might help ease your mind a bit. I'm sorry you're going through this. I wish I could say something that would make you feel better.

With Patrick I got 2x weekly NSTs and weekly biophysical profile ultrasounds starting at 35 weeks (which is actually when our insurance started after we moved here and when I started seeing her)

Right now we're planning on inducing at 39 weeks (my loss date is 38w1d, but I think with the induction date I'll be able to handle a week), but we haven't really talked about 3rd trimester care simply because we aren't really at that point yet. So I'm in that limbo stage where the 1 trimester ultrasounds are over and the 3rd trimester stuff hasn't started yet so I'm just kind of floating.

And yeah, I didn't feel like I was actually going to bring Erin and Patrick home until they were out of me and screaming, so it'll probably be the same for Skittles too.

I just don't like it.

Your so silly Brittanie. Your situation is totally different and I think I would be nervous too. I have tried not to get to attached because I was afraid of another loss. But the reality is that I loved this baby the moment he/she was conceived and despite my best efforts every day it gets stronger . If I remember correctly your dr induces you at 38 weeks and they watch the cord very closely. We are here for you so please feel free to vent or talk to us. But I loved the title of your post . I wish there was something we could do to help you relax and just enjoy your pregnancy.

Do you have a doppler or have you thought about getting one? Course another week or two and you will have tons of movement to reassure yourself. I go in for heartbeat checks 2x a week right now. I am planning to go Monday . It helps me get through it.

Thanks .:Shortcake:. for my great siggie
