:) very true. Last week, I went to L&D because I had bloody show and continued to get bh all day and the next morning and was barely 35 weeks. They told me at that point they wouldn't stop labor, and baby would most likely do very well.

I'm feeling very uncomfortable now. My bh are less, but hurt sometimes. I'm very ready for her to come whenever she feels ready. How are you doing now?

Oh, you must have been so worried. I'm glad things settled down.

I'm just desperate to have this baby in my arms and know that they are ok.

I'm scared of things happening now such as cord accident etc. My feeling is that if they're out, that can't happen and I can do everything I can to keep them safe.

Definitely. I had my older girls at 38 and 39 weeks, so losing a bloody plug at 35w0days wad a little frightening. Back when I had them, there weren't so many stories on the internet about bad things happening at the end of pregnancy. I was in a complete state of ignorance is bliss. Now I know too much and feel the same. I'd rather have baby here now and in my arms. I get worried when it's been a while since I felt her move and have to poke my belly and jump around. But then she makes up for it by kicking me super hard and feeling like she is going to jump put of my belly button!

I'm glad I'm not the only one who feels like that. I do exactly the same!

I just wanted to write and say I just found this post as I am having a moment or doubt with myself today. Im only 5 weeks but just have such anxiety that it won't work out or I'm basically in denial of my pregnancy because I'm
So scared it won't work out. I have had 2 perfect children but also two pretty devastating late 1st trimester miscarriages. I know what it feels like
to be scared out of your mind! You almost want to fall asleep and wake up for it all to be over and you have a perfect baby in your arms. Hang in there and prayers to you. I find that journaling helps get me through the tough days and just trying to know not much is in my control. You are so very
close to your rainbow!!!

Hope I'm so sorry you have also endured loss. It's the hardest thing. Pregnancy after loss is tough, much more so than I ever imagined.

Thank you for supporting me here.

Together we can be strong and help each other through those bad days.

S4mm, I am so so sorry for your loss. I can't even imagine. My heart aches for you for what you've had to endure. You will hold sweet Oscar again in your arms one day!!! xx
I am so happy to see that you're 37+weeks! Very exciting. God bless you and your family. You'll be bringing your LO home in no time.

I'm sorry to all the other ladies who have endured losses. I was never able to relate until recently. My son is just over 5 mths old and I conceived when he was 3 months. We just lost the baby at 8 weeks 5 days on 7/3. I was skeptical about coming back to the pg boards. Something felt off :( even though I had seen a healthy looking baby 3 days earlier with a healthy hb of 156.

I am not pg now but couldn't read and not respond. Hoping to be back on this side again soon.

Best wishes to all in your pregnancies!

Danielle, thank you so much for your kind words and I'm so incredibly sorry that you have suffered loss so recently.

Loss at any time or stage is a difficult cross to bare and I hope that one day, when the time is right for you, you will be pregnant again with a beautiful take home baby.
