November ***Pregnancy after Loss and Infertility*** - Page 14

post #261 of 269
I'm jumping in here without having read the whole thread...just a post here and there...

I'm 10 weeks tomorrow. I've got a 15 year old, a 5 year old and a 3 year old. I also had miscarriages in '97, '98 and '00...and the first one came after 3.5 years of unsuccessfully ttc. I lost my son, Aaron, to stillbirth after a HBA3C attempt last November. My children have all been c-sections, which is another huge loss for me (although of a very different kind). Pregnancy is a lot scarier than it used to be, even though I have really good pregnancies.

Anyway...two of my three miscarriages were almost exactly at the 12 week mark (within 2 days, both times). I've been really excited about this pregnancy, but now that I'm getting so close to 12 weeks, I'm starting to get a bit nervous. I have strange sensations in my pelvis sometimes, mostly related to nerve damage (or maybe adhesions?) from my 3rd section, and I'm getting into a bit of a tizzy every time something doesn't feel "right".

So...just wanted to say "hi" and talk a little about my mental state...

Storm Bride - welcome! I think I know you from somewhere - maybe Politics?

Check out my siggie, everyone! Finally making a commitment after telling some of my family on Thanksgiving. Everyone else will find out on our family website (my family is HUGE!).

I am really hoping to hear a hb on Monday. Please, please everyone send me strong hb vibes. Every day I have more and more confidence (I'm 12w2d), but a nice strong hb would be really reassuring!

Hi Lisa! Welcome to the club. I know exactly what you mean about getting nervous as you get to that point where you've lost previous pregnancies... I guess everybody here is much too familiar with that fear. I hope this is your best pregnancy yet!

, GOOD LUCK for Monday!!! :

As for me, I'm nervous... again... because I'm starting to feel really healthy and normal, not something I associate with being pregnant. Not tired, not queasy, etc. I guess I won't ever really relax with this pregnancy until... I have no idea. Birth maybe? (I mean, I have the doppler at home now, I checked the HB on thursday and everything sounded OK, what would it take to actually reassure me? )

I am feeling much better too! I am not as fatigued or nauseous. I even went back to pooping normal. I am freaked out, but still feeling confident.

I'm starting to feel more normal, too! Not totally, but the fog is starting to lift and I can stay up a little later without feeling quite so bad. I still have that awful taste in my mouth that kind of makes me gag, but in general things are looking up. Woohoo!

I wish I was feeling more normal! I am so looking forward to that day even though I know it'll freak me out too. My nausea I guess is a *tiny* bit better in that it wakes me up at 5-6am instead of 3am, but that's about it. My digestion still really sucks. It seems if I eat anything over a tiny tiny meal I get very 'sloshy' feeling, gassy, heartburn-y, etc. Its hard for me to eat small amounts all day I guess so I am just making it worse, I need to totally retrain my eating habits I guess.

Doppler isn't here yet, hopefully monday!
