Getting pregnant after a loss
For those of you who got pregnant after a loss, when did you start to feel like the pregnancy was actually going to turn into a budle of joy that you brought home from the hospital? Of course, I need to get past the repeat b/w next week and the initial u/s in 2 weeks, but then, will I start to feel better?

Sweetie I am going to be very honest with you. I never got over that scared feeling. I did feel better after bloodwork and u/s and hearing the hb and all of that, but there was always that worry. Just take it one day at a time, and know everyday puts you one step closer to holding that little blessing in your arms.

I was going to say the same thing as Melanie. I finally felt relieved when I'd pushed his head out and heard the doctor suction his mouth.

I started getting used to the idea of an actual live baby once I could feel him moving and stuff. We own a doppler so using that each night helped (but it also made me worry more because he had an irregular heartbeat :uhoh: ).

Once you're in the Loss Club, that fear is never totally gone.

Gosh... when I got the bfp I worried a little but waiting for "the call" and reading SO much into a number made it all come flooding back.

Deanna and Melanie are right - there is always a bit of a shadow following -- Every test brings a new round of worry.

You do enjoy lots of it, but the love always carries some worry...
