Hi Mamas...I am hoping maybe you can share how you handle the stress of the first trimester? I am so so scared most of the time and its taking a toll on me. I felt ok up until a week or so ago, and now it seems like people all around me are losing babies at 9, 10, 11, 13 weeks! It is really making me terrified and it also makes me wonder why I would get to keep my baby when they don't you know?
I have a Drs appt Monday (tomorrow) night so I hope that helps me a little. I had heard that you are 98% in the clear once you see a heartbeat so I was feeling really good since I saw a heartbeat in my December ultrasound, but all these losses so late? Surely they had seen or heard a heartbeat too? I just can't wait for my ultrasound tomorrow...
Hugs mama! I get that stress very much. I was one of those unlucky 2% when I lost my Riley at 12 weeks...we'd seen his heartbeat twice. And I've lost three other babies too. So each time I get pg, I'm kind of a basket case. And not necessarily all of those later losses saw heartbeats. Usually it takes a couple of weeks after the baby passes for the m/c to start, at least in most cases I've seen. I think we just have to trust our bodies and believe in the process, as terrifying as it is. Hang in there!
