Wow, where is everyone??
Well, after all the problems I've been through with past pregnancies I honestly thought I'd never get to this stage, but I've had it, and I'm having a whole lot of trouble coping mentally. I had to go back to the hospital last night as when the home care nurse arrived, the new IV that took an hour to even get in had blown. I called my doc and she set up for me to back into labour & delivery to get a new one. When I got there they told me it would be a little bit as they just had a c-section (1st one in the 4 days I was there inspite of 14 babies being born) and baby was not doing well. After a 1/2 hour they sent me to emerg as baby was really not doing well. The first nurse tried 3 times, second nurse tried 2 times and got it on the third, by the time the second nurse was working on me I was laying there with tears running down my face. I felt bad as she thought she was hurting me--which she was but that had nothing to do with my tears. I think I just hit the end of my rope, I've been crying off and on ever since. I have this overwelming fear that I could be this sick and have no payoff in the end but more pain. I have the fear that there is simply no way I will be able to cope with another loss, especially at a point when my body and mind is just SO depleted.
I feel silly, I mean I've said a hundred times I'd never complain about pregnancy symptoms but I just can't cope anymore, I"m just too tired.
Sorry to be such a downer.

Shannon Hang in there sweetie! You're going through so much right now. I've always felt joy for being pregnant and then overwhelmed much of the way through the pregnancy. I haven't experienced the many miscarriages that you have so I can't speak there. I can only say that you are being so strong about all of this. Being a mom is not easy. From the very beginning, eh? I have to run as the toddler is pounding the keyboard. More later. You're in my prayers.

Oh Shannon, I'm so sorry. I can't imagine how hard this is for you right now. I really hope things improve for you over the next few weeks as you get closer to the second trimester, both physically and emotionally. I just wish there was something we could do to help. Let us know if we can be anything more than a shoulder to lean on. I hope you're felling better today.

I've thought of going back to Calgary, but I don't want to be away from my doc.

Kelly, I'm so sorry for your loss. Take care of yourself.

Shannon, so sorry you're feeling so miserable. I hope this passes soon.

Nothing new here....it's been a very busy time, and now I am so pooped, so I think I'm going to hang out on the couch, then soon to bed...

Home now, only threw up once this evening. So tired and still not all that good mentally. I just fear that as soon as we stop the IV everything will go back to really bad, then what??
