<p>I finally went in to my primary care doc to get my OB referral (I'm planning a homebirth with midwives, but will do parallel care) and the nurse comes in and starts her little spiel, "Congrats, etc...you'r right at 11 weeks, so you shouldn't have to worry about a loss at this point."  <img alt="irked.gif" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/irked.gif">  I didn't burst her bubble, but I lost my last little one at exactly 11 wks, the day after seeing a wiggly babe with a good heartbeat on the ultrasound.  </p>

<p>We know all too well that we are never really safe from loss. I am hoping, that considering her job, this nurse is aware of that, too and just trying to be positive and optimistic for your sake.</p>

<p>It was kind of ironic and crushing at the same time, but yes, I'm sure she was well meaning.</p>

<p><span style="font-size:8pt;"><span style="color:#000000;"><span style="font-family:arial, sans-serif;">Yeah, I'm not a bubble burster but I always cringe when I hear people saying "Oh, I'm in the second trimester now! In the 'safe zone'" *sigh* I only wish that were true, but after losing my little girl at 17 weeks and knowing many people who have suffered losses much later... I know there is no "safe zone" :(</span></span></span></p>
