I hope I start to relax a bit more, but this week I'm just feeling pessimistic and nervous that something could change in an instant.
I think it's normal to feel as you do when nearing/passing a milestone. Feel free to vent away in here. This whole pregnancy after loss thing is scary. It's hard to relax and enjoy the pregnancy journey when we've experienced all the 'what ifs' that other mamas wonder about. For us it's reality. Just take it one day at a time.

I don't have any guests coming, but I finally got up the energy to clean the down stairs this past week. Upstairs will have to wait. Took everything I had to vaccuum and mop the downstairs. Enjoy the visit with the in-laws.

That's a great turnout! There isn't a walk anywhere near me.

AFM: I've been feeling fine. Taking a nap everyday, a little feeling of fullness or something in my belly area. My confidence is starting to waiver as it always does when I get close to a doc appt. My first u/s is on Thursday. I keep telling myself that this is the pregnancy that sticks, but the fear is starting to creep in. I'll be better after the u/s.
