... Ok I am trying not to freak out over everything. But I am right there at the beginning of the second trimester, I feel fine, morning sickness has faded. I don't feel the baby moving at all and the kicker Seth probably died at week sixteen weeks two weeks before I found out.

My freak out point... I lost three pounds. I have no ms I am eating well if not too much. When I went in for my appointment where Seth had no heartbeat I had lost weight then too.

Solution... ice cream.

I'm sorry you're having these scary reminders of your loss with Seth. If it helps any, I didn't start to feel this one kick till almost 20 weeks. I have an anterior placenta which I guess "muffles" their kicks till they get strong.
As for your weight...in our DDC one of the ladies has lost a total of 30 lbs with her current pregnancy. Her baby is doing just fine, though.
I imagine you will probably feel scared until you start feeling those regular, strong kicks reminding you that your baby is ok. I know I didn't really start to feel reassured until then. Hang in there, it's coming!

I would feel the same way Nicole, Im so sorry your stressed. Do you have a doppler? I think hearing your little ones h/b daily might reassure you just a little. I did not feel my last one early on due to a anterior placenta, it freaked me out too. It was not constant until about 19-20wks with him. I hope you get through these next few weeks as quick as possible.
momma of 8 beautiful children now. Most recent is Jerry Jr. born 11/19/12 at 37wk, 7lbs 6oz and 19.5inches and Baby Reymundo born 10/7/13 at 35w6d, 6lbs 7oz, 19.5 inches. Momma of 5 angels. New siggy to come!

So sorry that you are having a hard time. If you don't have a doppler then that might really help you. I know it helped me although when I couldn't find Jacob's heartbeat right away I would have a few moments of freak out until I found it.

Thank you *Kiliki* for my beautiful siggy

It is completely understandable. I know you are LDS, so have you asked for a blessing. I swear I make DH give me one every week when I am pregnant.

Thank you *kiliki* for my beautiful siggy!
