Re: to U/S or not to U/S?

Our daughter left us after 32 weeks in my womb, and we had some early losses after as well.

I haven't gotten any u/s at all with this pregnancy, nor do I plan to. It wouldn't have saved the others, the anticipation would make me neurotic, (I'm pretty sure I'd have a panic attack at the actual u/s since the only one we got for DD was after she left), and I know that ten minutes after the u/s I'd be back to worrying. I'm just trying to take things one day at a time, be grateful for this little one as long as s/he decides to stay, and hope for the best.

Every mama is different, though - maybe you'll know when you get there if you want it or not. No one says you have to decide the whole plan now... and no one says you can't change your mind, even if you do.
