Hi there ladies! I can't believe I'm finally on the EORB thread, omg!!! faint.gif I'm so excited and petrified. I wasn't even going to post on here for the longest time but I think I need the support. I'm having some pretty severe anxiety, more powerful than I realized it would be already (like when I was PG with my DS1 and my m/s hit, it was like sitting somewhere in the sunshine having ice-cream and peanut butter chocolate cake, lost in the feel-good, then somebody comes up and hits you in the face with a friggin' 2x4; yeeeeah, good times). When I opened this thread to post I started feeling panicky, heart started pounding, face got hotter. And it's even worse when I try to lurk a little on the I'm Pregnant board or the January DDC (EDD is around February 5 but both my boys came early, DS1 by a few days and DS2 by about two weeks). Thought I'd browse around there and when the February DDC goes up but I'm starting to think that might not be such a good idea for me. Seeing all the goodbye and freakout threads is ramping up my terror and side-by-side there's all the other threads about names and what to buy and all that which is fine of course, this is a happy time and these women should feel good and enjoy their pregnancies. But I'm just trying to get to the next half hour w/o FTFO that my baby died already and I'm going to start bleeding any second.

I feel like I need to put on the face of calm and strength as DH has always deferred to me when it comes to the relax in the pregnancy department. With all the decisions we've made regarding the kids (vax, circ, HS, nutrition, etc. and so on) I've always led the way in research and laying out what was what so let's make the best choices for us with as much information as possible spread out. I've always been fairly level-headed and mellow about it all, including my ability to house, grow, and birth a baby. I'm struggling to find that again. I'm hoping as m/s starts to really take me dancing that I'll calm the hell down. I know that really doesn't mean anything but with my boys I had severe all day/all night nausea where throwing up would have been a relief as well as terrible food aversions to basically everything lol.gif . With my m/c I never had any really strong symptoms. My brain can't help but make the connections regardless of the validity.

There's no more listening to that inner me right now; it's being drowned out by the fear. I don't want to spend my pregnancy this way; but over the years, everything I've learned and experienced, there's no wide-eyes here. This planet is harsh and beautiful and we run the gamut of pain and ecstasy. Hoping with everything in me that I can stay closer to the ecstasy end of the spectrum.

Anyway, I really needed to get that out and this is the place I felt the least paranoid about putting it. Hoping I get to go through the next 36 weeks or thereabouts with you all!

Welcome Mamacat!
DDC are traumatic.
The drop outs suck, I couldn't related to women who started buying stuff and names at 5 weeks, I crapped out of every us. DP thinks I'm nuts he's right.
But here I'm normal.

8 might be enough

Oh, the ddcs. The Nov one isn't too bad, thete's a few loss mommas there with me and the others are supportive that I've seen. I didn't join too early though, but I was wanting to make myself feel a little more confident about things. The only thing I bought early were some diapers, it was too good a deal to pass up.

Today I went looking for shorts. My maternity ones are not going to fit well until baby is really sticking out. No luck greensad.gif I have one pair of shorts that fit now and I can't wear them everyday. I'm so happy I'll need shorts this week, but I want them to fit smile.gif

I also didn't join my DDC until a few weeks ago. Oh, and I still check for blood even though I've passed my milestones and heard the heartbeat.

We still haven't told the kids, but I'm starting to show. Seriously 9 pgs in less then 9 years will do that I guess. I just wear my normal clothes that don't hug my belly. I guess we'll have to let family know in a couple weeks when I put on a swimsuit. smile.gif I also am wearing my fat jeans instead of maternity right now. It bugs me that I midwife wants my due date a week and a half later then I think and I'm showing. Lol, oh well I guess I'll go by my first date with everyone and her date with her. She was so confused she was going to put me due the end of Dec. When I got my positive in march

By the way, are any if of the other Nov. Moms hoping for the 11/12/13 baby? That'd be a week early and that's when most of my babies have been born. I really want to have my baby then. I missed the 7/7/07 baby and that year I was due 7/4/07.

Thanks so much ladies! grouphug.gif Very happy to be here with you all happytears.gif .

hippy mum: Yeah, May exploded! lol.gif I was trying to think of ways to make myself feel more confident as well; think I'll hold off on the DDC bit a little longer 'cause that ain't it right now.

100%mom: We're not telling the kids for a long while yet. Not sure when we'll do it though. I will tell a few close friends of mine but everybody else clamming up until shrug.gif . I can't even fathom a guess at this point.

Hm. My due date is 11/21/13 and I'm figuring bc I want a scheduled c/s I'll be a week before that but I don't think it will stretch to 11/12/13! One of mine was due 2/2/02 but was born 4 days later.

Mamacats. I always thought ladies were completely silly buying stuff so early- even b4 my loss. I def waited to join the July Ddc . I feel I have to watch what I say as others aren't loss moms

Aw man, I'm sorry your kitty mama is going through it right now unusely greensad.gif . How is the one kitty doing that has been holding on?

J and J's: Even with our first before I ever had loss on my radar we didn't buy anything until a few days before he was born lol.gif . That's just us though I guess and we didn't feel the need to rush and get things done. With DS2 we got the carseat and a few diapers about a month and a half before he was born lol. We just throw it all to the wind orngtongue.gif . Hope you've got lots of plans to get to the pool!

Thanks guys :)

 

My EDD is/would have been 2/6/14, just one day before the twins' due date last year. 

 

Buuuutt...I havent been feeling the symptoms for the past few days so I took another (3, but who's counting, right?) hpt's in the past 24 hours and the line seems to be getting lighter with the frers. Ive never had that happen before, so Im afraid it's not sticky. 

 

But actually, as much as I hate to say it, and as much as it will still be a loss for me, Im not that sad about it. I mean, I am a little terrified at the idea of having 4 under 4. 

 

As far as the early fertility goes, I think it must just be a fluke because I had the Implanon birth control put in right after the twins were born. But, it made me feel awful, so I had it removed and then I got this positive test (well, about 6 positive tests) less than two weeks later.

SIDS happens.

welcome, mamacat!

 

uriver- sorry about the kitties....

 

i got brave today and rummaged through my basement for baby clothes- i found that i had bought WAAAAAy more for my DD than what she actually ever needed, ha-ha... isn't it like that for everyone? Anyway, I will probably have more than enough unisex and boy clothes (we got boy stuff for DD since we did not know what she'd be) for a new baby boy.

Adalines mom-would the implant give a false pos? On poas she says not to go by lines getting lighter. Keep us posted.

100%- I can't remember if you were charting, if you were did you show your mw? I took mine and the mw actually has new date wheels that can put all sorts of info, not just 28 day cycle. She put in my lmp but with a 34 avg cycle and came up with my o due date from ff. So my dates are from 11/15-11/20 for 40wks. I'm guessing she'll come between the dates, not after 40 but who knows. She'll get here when she's ready.

I need to take a break from this group. The recent subject matter is really anxiety-inducing for me. I will check back in from time to time, as well as after I give birth. Wishing everyone a healthy, happy pregnancy!
