Yes about the having the possibility for "profound loss" like never before. So true.
I was (and am still, a bit) sooo paranoid about DS dying of SIDS or suffocating somehow. My dh was a little worried about my fears but as DS has gotten older they've gotten better. I STILL check if he's breathing sometimes when he is sleeping. He just looks so darn still sometimes...hardly moving...it's terrifying! I don't know what I'd do if anything ever happened to him...
I'm also way more sensitive to stuff about kids and babies and I hate to hear babies crying now too. Actually, now that I think about it, I've developed a total distastedfor horror movies and the like.
I think these fears must be normal to some extent. It's so horribly scary to be a mama sometimes though.
