I think I'm feeling too confident. I'm only 10 weeks, I know that there is a lot that could still happen. Maybe I'm too at peace, I don't know. I feel like I'm ready to tell everyone I'm p/g....I didn't tell too many people before I was 20 weeks with DD and I wasn't ready this soon when I was p/g with DS (before any of my losses), so why am I ready now?? I went yesterday and made an u/s appointment......a 3D/4D one for when I'm 30 weeks p/g....how insane is that?? Oh, and the other day, I bought DD the cutest Big Sister shirt! What am I thinking? I guess I'm glad I can get this excited, but the thought still remains- What if I'm setting myself up for disappointment?

I think it is great that you are feeling so confident. Beckie felt the same way and look how good her u/s went! I think it is your mommy's intuition telling you everything is fine. What is your longest loss milestone? Maybe being near the second tri has made it seem more real! Are you getting an early u/s?

I think it is great that you are feeling so at ease. Like April said, I have felt that way too & it is sooo much nicer than feeling panicked every day. I also think that feeling scared every day doesn't make a loss any easier to deal with if it happens....so ENJOY it! If I could figure out how to help everyone feel this way I would because we all deserve to enjoy our pgs. I hope you feel this way every day until that baby arrives!

I agree. I think it is good you are feeling confident. Maybe it's "Mommy intuition" like April said?

I know how you feel. I was actually all set to kinda keep this pregnancy quiet, except DH called and told his family. His dad happened to be at his uncle's house, so the word spread like wildfire. So I basically threw my hands in the air and said ok, let's just tell everyone. I did kinda wait until my ultrasound, to tell some people at work. Now I'm just at the point where, I know that I can't make it go one way or the other. I'm already on progesterone shots. I got to see the heartbeat. Its all in God's hands as far as I'm concerned. But I do still have that little "what if" in the back of my mind. But I guess its not very loud because I actually let myself go shopping today for some maternity clothes. I guess all we can really do is hope for the best.

I guess you all are right. I did get to see a baby with a h/b at 6 weeks, which is more than I got to see with any of my losses, so that is a positive. I guess it just feels weird to let my guard down. Maybe I'll feel less awkward about everything after I have my 12 week appointment.

I agree with the other ladies. I wouldn't think about it as setting yourself up for disappointment. What a blessing to feel at peace and comfortable with this pregnancy.

I feel at peace with this pregnancy too. I feel so at peace that I went and bought a pair of maternity pants! I didn't do that with my DD's pregnancy. I hoping that it will be easier this time. My biggest loss milestone is 28wks, if I can make it pass that marker I will be fine. And probably stress until it's over.
