Oh Liladancing, that IS a scary horrible dream. But it is just a dream nonetheless. Of course, It totally makes sense that you might be having a lot of unresolved fears and doubts come up with this pregnancy. But there is no reason to think anything should be wrong with your sweet son, not unless there is real medical proof. So breathe and rest and try to take a moment to connect with him and talk to him. That might just help reassure you. And if not, you do have that cool Doppler your Mother bought, right?
Neonalee, Funny about the clothing battle you are going through in your head. I bet I might suffer a little form it too. DH refuses to let anyone dress up this baby like she's a doll, and no pink or frills. And I agree (mostly) but I also want the freedom to enjoy dressing her, and so the battle inside me begins. Sorry about the food poisoning, that sounds awful!!!
I just had another prenatal apt and it turns out I have partial placenta previa. We are going to have another scan in two months to see if it moves away form my cervix. My midwife said not to be too concerned unless I begin spotting/bleeding, which can be really dangerous and would demand bedrest. I haven't read anything about it yet, but I am inclined to just take it one notch easier so that I don't aggravate or cause any problems. I mean, I don't *want* to start spotting and then have issues. But I am going to look it up first before changing my lifestayle at all. Basiclaly, I had planned to dig holes & plant like 20 hostas in my garden today, but might hold off until I figure out if that is okay.
We decided to tell people the sex of the baby (although I originally didn't want to) and it has actually been fun. People are REALLY excited for us, way more than I thought they'd be. Yay! I am still glowing from the news.
