Someone please tell me it's just hormones, but I've been a lunatic all day. I woke up feeling sick and (TMI warning!) spent about 2 hours in the bathroom with problems at both ends. (I warned you!) Now my stomach seems to have settled, and baby girl is moving up a storm, but I'm an emotional wreck.

I keep thinking back to the two and a half year journey of injections, pills, iui, two losses, and everything else hellish i've been through. I know I've come so far, and I've been so confident over the last 10 weeks or so that I'll actually be bringing home my miracle baby soon. But today I've been irrationally scared. Worried that not enough has gone wrong and I'll end up with trouble during the c-section, or baby will die in-utero as has happened with two acquaintances over the last few years. Am I losing my mind? Have any of you had such crazy fears this late in the game? I only have 12 more days until she's here, and i'm not sure what is causing this but I've been crying most of the day.

I am sure hormones are playing a little role in how you feel, but because of everything you have been through, you have every right to be scared or worried or any other emotion you are having!! You might not feel a sense of relief until your precious baby is in your arms, but as bad as that sucks, it's okay!! The last 2 years have been hell for me as well...and we can only be strong for so long before we have a breakdown!! You are doing great!! You are almost there!! Try not to worry, but I know that is easier said than done!!

And...I hope you start feeling better!!!!!!! Both ends?! NO FUN!!

The end of pregnancy is emotional even when it doesn't involve a long journey and a miracle baby. I think everything you're feeling is completely normal.

You're almost there. In less than two weeks you'll be holding that precious baby girl and that relief will be a huge weight off your shoulders.

I agree it's completely normal to get a big burst of the crazies toward the end. Just hang in there, and in less than 2 weeks you will have your perfect lil girl!

Toward the end of my pregnancy with DS I was the same, I was waiting for 'the other shoe to drop', the pregnancy had gone so well after the loss of his twin that I was convinced something else had to happen.

Sounds normal to be hormonal especially after your previous losses.... Hang in there! Hope your stomach stays calm too.

Unfortunately, it sounds normal for PAL. She will be safe in your arms before you know it and it will be so worth it! I hope you are feeling better and I can't wait to see your rainbow baby

It is completely normal for PAL. I had days I would be so scared I would cry. Just before I left for the hospital to have Scarlett I thought to myself "I hope they can find all her clothes in the closet to throw them away if something happens. I don't want anything of hers to be here"... How morbid is that?

I never went through this with my boys.
