...this pregnancy is NOT the same as with Katrina. This is a completely different baby, different circumstance, different everything.

This is what has helped me get to where I am and will continue helping me through this pregnancy. I have faith in this pregnancy that we will be bringing Sweet Pea home with us because this is a different pregnancy altogether (no, I'm not being naive or cocky, I just have faith and I believe!)

With Katrina, every app't we had was completely awful...it started when they couldn't hear her heartbeat at the 13 week app't, then it just got more and more awful when we found out about her brain problems, which only ended up getting worse and worse.

This is not to say that I'm not still terrified beyond belief - especially about the big 19 week u/s at the end of October...but deep down, I have a beautiful feeling about this baby, our beautiful rainbow baby

So I hope all of you can try to find that deep down within you when you're feeling scared. Tell yourself, this is NOT the same as with your other pregnancy and this is a different baby altogether. I hope it can help you get through the tough times of the pregnancy, just a little bit more.

I had to tell myself that with both rainbow babies. Glad you're feeling better about it! I felt it deep down with both Erin and Patrick, too.

Thanks to babydoll213 for the siggy! My kids' blog Cora's blog

Oh Steph, those statements are so encouraging! I'm so glad that you tell yourself that and that deep down, you BELIEVE it, too! I find it hard sometimes to TELL myself something vs. BELIEVING what I tell myself, but it sounds to me like you are in a really good place right now. I'm glad!

And you're right --- different pregnancy, different baby, different time
I will have to try hard to be this positive; your attitude is inspiring.

Thank you to Jaidynsmum for my beautiful siggie!

Yes indeed... it's hard to separate them in my head. Although right now I'm trying to convince myself that this pregnancy IS the same as Devin's, and is NOT the same as the ectopic.

2 IVF babies and 1 surprise!
