Expecting a Rainbow - Page 6

post #101 of 123

thanks ladies. I wish there was something I could do as well... but there just isn't. The slightly tender feeling I've had all week is more cramp-like and i'm seeing pink every time i use the bathroom... the mind body connection is pretty powerful, I tell ya. I have a whopping headache from both crying and then suppressing tears. I'm heading to bed, but am honestly dreading waking up in a puddle of blood (which has happened before) the thought of that makes me sick to my stomach. Again, I'm really sorry to dump this on you guys but I know that you've been there and understand what I'm talking about. My prayer tonight is that each of you gets your rainbow baby safe and sound many months from now... may you be spared this heartache.
 

Much love, 

Banana

So many hugs and prayers for you now, Banana. There are no words, but be gentle with you, give yourself space and time and love. I'm so sorry!

Banana, so sorry to read your news. :( I wish you lots of love, comfort and healing in the weeks and months to come. I know loss is so, so, so hard. Big hugs to you.

 

 

 

How are others doing? Is it becoming more real yet? I'm 16 weeks yesterday and it is finally starting to sink in that baby is not going anywhere. We did the cell free DNA testing and got back good results, and were relieved. I had an amnio scheduled for yesterday and we decided to cancel because we just didn't want to take on that small risk. Now just nervous for the anatomy scan and hoping for the best -- only 3 weeks away. Wow! I'm still amazed how much time has gone by.

we did the blood test as well, and knowing that i have a little girl in there (with a name and everything!) is definitely helping it seem more real. We had an anatomy scan at 15 weeks, and will have one again at 19/20 weeks, just cause im old. lol everything looked fine before so i'm crossing my fingers that it will all still be ok.

 

i agree that getting those low risk test results back, and then knowing gender on top of that...i feel like...maybe...just maybe...i can get invested in this little sprite.

LOL, I'm "old" too, but my practice wouldn't give me another scan, even though I would really like one! They were pretty adamant that there are things that you wouldn't see fully developed until 20 weeks, and there was no reason to do another one before then. But having one at 15 weeks would have been awesome!! And seeing a little girl! Yay! So much fun. I have never had a girl before so this is all new to me! And yes, maybe, just maybe, we can start getting excited for real...!

I agree with your doc, why insist when it is useless? They wouldn't even tell us gender. We had to wait till I get my blood test results. Its all so silly.

Yes, I actually am beginning to feel like this is going to happen. I think I will feel even more so after the anatomy scan in TWO WEEKS! I can feel baby moving every day now at least once so that is really helping me. DH even had a dream about getting the u/s lady fired because she told us the gender when she wasn't supposed to smile.gif So he must be a believer too that this IS happening.

Well it is becoming more real for me as my stomach has popped, haha.  I have a prenatal appt next week, I am thinking there will be an ultrasound, and I am still terrified that there will be something wrong.  Wonder if that feeling will ever go away??  I have found that when I start to think about this baby, I am so so happy and excited, I feel like I could just burst...and then I take a deep breath and reel those feelings back in, it's like I am trying to protect myself.  And then I feel guilty, lol.  Oh man, what a roller coaster.

 

On that note, I feel like I need a good mantra or meditation to start each day...anyone have anything they tell themselves that they would like to share??

Laadies, I wanted to put it here before I share on the main board. Yesterday, at 18 weeks 3 days, my worst fear was realised and our little one, who we have named Angel, was born with no vital signs. I am heartbroken, but surrounded by love and support. I wish you all the best, and hope that I am the last of us who has to deliver this horrible news. I love you all and wish you wonderful pregnancies and beautiful births.

Hi all. I have had several miscarriages, as well as a son that passed after birth due to a heart defect. I just had a miscarriage this summer, the month before we conceived this little one that I am currently pregnant with. I also have two living sons, 7 and 5.
