Every day I worry that this will be the day something goes wrong. I know now that she'd be just fine if she were born and I can't help but feel that she'd be safer on the outside than on the inside. Then I could see her and monitor her all the time.

It doesn't help that the blood clotting problems I have cause increased risk of stillbirth. They are probably going to induce me in 16 days and that's great but every day until that feels so long.

Thank you *Kiliki* for my perfect siggy Follow us on Facebook

That's how I felt with both Erin and Patrick...especially Patrick since I went past the gestational point I lost Cora.

I hate that we got robbed of the excited anticipation of labor, instead of this dread.

16 days isn't long!! WOW!

Oh man thanks for posting. I know the longer Vera stays in (as long as nothing goes wrong) the better it is for her (up to 39-40 weeks), but I have been secretly hoping that since today our insurance kicks in that in a week or two I have her so she is out and I can see she is okay. I even had a dream last night that I had some pain, she sort of "popped out" and everyone was in a big rush but I was just carrying her around and she was fine. Oh and in said dream she had a full head of red hair lol. But the night before I had an awful nightmare she died in utero. Ugh. I'm starting to get really anxious.

I'm so glad that I'm not alone in this boat. I feel the same way. Now that I'm almost 37 weeks I just want him out. I need to be sure he is ok. Soon our babies will be here Alicia and maybe we can breathe and rest some.
