Re: Pregnancy After Loss (Aug 16-31)

The wait to call them is agonizing. I wish someone would answer the phone so I know whether to drive 30 minutes to their office or 5 minutes to the hospital down the street with the fancy machines. And my darling husband just said "why do you have to be so sad and depressed?" Really?

Yes, I'm back from my facial and it was marvelous. Very relaxing and needed and my skin doesn't feel like a grease pit (sorry for the visual on that one).

I used to be a bright and annoyingly sunny optimist. Blows my mind to think back on that person.
for the facial!
for the crib and registry.
I kwym about looking back on who you used to be. That's one of the things that really bugs me about losing Elliana - everyone treats me like I'm the same person... but I'm not. There was a time where being late meant being pregnant, and being pregnant meant having a baby, and having a baby meant bringing home a healthy baby. It isn't like that now... though I wish it was.

Oh dear and
and to DH - you have every right to feel what you feel.
People would always tell me that just spotting meant nothing, it could be nothing, etc... but I know for me how m/c starts and there's no consoling me once it does. Optimism is lovely, but I prefer realism.

AFM: Wednesday I felt really horrid, all day. So sick and pukey. (It was horrid and wonderful all at the same time!) Yesterday DH got up with the kids and let me sleep - for another 3 hours But then I woke up and felt all right, and continued to through the day - a little queasy and a few moments of "uh oh" but all right. This morning I didn't sleep in, but I don't feel too bad still - kinda queasy but no too bad.
Now, I should be able to enjoy feeling not-so-bad... but I can't. I'm all worried that hormone levels are dropping and that's why I'm feeling less sick and I'll just start m/c'ing in another day or 2.

Re: Pregnancy After Loss (Aug 16-31)

I'm back from my dreaded weekly ultrasound... embryo is still there, getting bigger, still tucked away and not easy to see. The nurse thought the heartrate looked slow, but the ultrasound machine measured it at 125, which she said was normal. She could see the amniotic sac forming as well. I'm still not feeling confident, but everything seems ok for another week.

emeyer76 - I hope everything is ok!

I can't imagine the stress of weekly u/s. It brings on panic to think ahead to a 20wk u/s. *shudder*

Thank God everything is fine. Doc spent a long time looking around and there is a bit more fluid under the baby so I should expect more spotting thruout this pregnancy. That was the most horrifying moment ever. Seriously. Thanks for the prayers. They worked!

Thank you Lord for Erica and her baby's health!
I was thinking about you today and continuing to pray. I'm glad it's okay.
