Oh gosh, bet that was so scary at the time, but you must be laughing at it now. Although you are probably preoccupied with the missing panty liner. Hopefully it turns up discreetly, or not at all.

Glad to hear about the movements, that was be reassuring. I was same as you with Mia, there wasn't alot as she was so small, so I am looking forward to that.

Anyway next scan on Thursday next week, so will try and maintain some sanity until then :wink:

I am pleased that all is going well buddy, good with movements and all, we welcome moving even if it is in uncomfy areas...

:bighug: Sara, its good to see you back.

Today was a tad emotional, I finally unpacked all the baby clothes my friend gave me.
I sorted them into sizes etc. Didnt worry too much about sorting boys and girls as we havent told people that its a girl yet. All I kept thinking when I was sorting them, was GG should have been wearing this, GG would have looked cute in that. What would GG look like in that one? :blue:
I guess I am going to have these moments all along through life.
My biggest fear today was that I was jinxing the whole pg, so I stopped. I have to get back in there tomorrow though, it looks like an opshop at the mo.

(((((Hugs))))) Tracey,

I'm sure that what you are feeling is pretty natural, and I am sure GG won't let you jinx this pg - she was probably hanging out with you checking out what you are gonna be dressing her little sister in :)

I have often wondered how I would be with going thru the clothes I bought Satori, in a subsequent pg. I can imagine it would be pretty much as you have posted.

One day at a time sweet :)

The clothes sorting is a bit of a tough one. I didn't buy anything for Loralei till after she was born. I did go through the stuff we bought Trinity and did have thoughts of packing it away, but it dawned on me that had she survived we would have used her clothes for the next bub anyway, so we did, nice in a way that alot of Loraleis newborn pics are with her wearing her big sisters clothes :)
Hang on in there hun, it does get easier to bear.

Image Tracey, I am with you on the clothing department too. I must admit that I too struggled when I was sorting through the clothes the other week, but then it was different too, as with Julia I hadnt even got the clothes sorted for her, but had the bassinet set up etc, whereas with this one I havent done that yet. The most I have done is washed and dried all the clothes and sorted them out. There is no way that you are jinxing this pregnancy by going through the clothes,and like Yvonne said GG wouldnt let you jinx it. Take the days as they come and take the emotions as they come. Image

Immmmmm, no easy answer there. That's one of the main reasons I want to find out what we are having so that if it is a girl, I can make the emotional decision of what to do with Liam's clothes. Not that we have a huge amount there - but still will have to decide what to do with what we do have. If it's another boy, I will be quite happy for him to wear the clothes we had for Liam.

Thanks guys, I finished off the clothes today, was up to the bigger sizes so it was a lot easier.

I bought this baby a little grow suit from GG the other day, its pink and says "I'm the little sister" Its so cute.

Scan went well today, nothing showing up that shouldnt be.
Midwife at lunchtime for weekly check on protien and blood pressure.
I am sure that will be ok to.
Scan was very emotional. Even DH got a bit teary when baby looked directly at us through moniter (well you know).

I can only imagine what it must be like that far thru. Thank goodness we did not buy anything, I had only purchased 2 things for Beanie... I am sure that we will not require these for the next baby...
Scans, I like them but I hate them. I met with my OB for the first time yesterday, that was scary coz it then all felt so real.
I saw our little one on the screen looking like a little person and all I asked was Doc is the heart still beating... I had tears well up...
Scary stuff man... but they do all they can to ensure we are at ease with the pg....

I saw the specialist yesterday - he is very happy with the way things are progressing.
I was quite touched when he commented on my ring and necklace - they are both butterflys - the necklace is from DH for my birthday which was 10 days after we had GG and the ring is from my friend - both in memory of GG. The specialist was saying that butterflies represent freedom and everlasting beauty :cry: very touching!

He had recommended that I am seen at least every two weeks by my midwife and he will see me every three to four weeks as I am very high risk of developing pre eclampsia again. But if I do, the chances of wee baby surviving are very good. Its funny cos I keep looking at Corts picture and thinking that the wee one in my tummy will be the same size as he is in that picture!! Its reassuring to know that if she is born early she has a good chance of being ok. Thank you Lisa for sharing that picture - it means a lot more to me than you know!
It makes me realise how much I rely on my TLO family to share all this with. I am sure people around here are sick of hearing about how I am feeling.

I have something that one of my clients from work sent me that I want to share with you all, its a piece written by Elizabeth McCracken. Its lengthy, but well worth the read.

Hey Tracey,

I'm glad all went well with the specialist - he sounds very nice and very human :) I'm glad you are getting some good care :)

We are all here for you sweet, and feel free to share your feelings anytime :)

I read the Elizabeth McCraken link and I think she sums things up quite well. Thanks for sharing(((( Hugs))))

Take Care

I got a letter from the antenatal clinic last night. They usually send me a copy when they send one to MW, but there is a bit in there I was not expecting......

"...........HELLP syndrome in her first pregnancy. She had a vaginal delivery of a stillborn baby weighing 340g at 26 weeks gestation. Tracey was investigated for the reason behind this sad event and she was found to have ankylosing spondylosis, which is a type of autoimmune disorder that may lead to deficient implantation, pre eclampsia and IUGR........."

:shock: :shock: All I knew was that I was diagnosed with Ankoloising Spondylo Arthiritis some years ago (my hips are dodgy and I get ciatic nerve bum cramps!) :shock: :shock:

I was mulling this over in the shower last night and had the horrid thought that this is hereditary and I caused it all. DH came in to the bathroom and asked what was wrong - WTF? I just read him the letter 10 mins before!! Anyway his reply was "shit happens, get over it"!!! :x I was really mad - GG wasn't shit that happened and I won't get over it!!! Once I calmed down, I realised that he was just trying to stop me from blaming myself - but come on - someone give the man lessons in tactfulness for me?? He was so close to being a solo dad last night.

Hi Tracey....I read your last post and I wanted to let you know....that I too have an autoimmune disorder. I was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis when I was 23 (I'm now 33). My arthritis is so bad that I had a hip replacement at age 29, and a knee replacement at age 30.

I was told by both my obstetrician and my rheumatologist that my autoimmune disorder had nothing to do with my son being stillborn at 35 weeks. I had to be on low dose predinisone to keep my arthritis bearable during my pregnancy and was told that that didn't cause my son's death either.

I know how you feel about beating yourself up. I did the same thing (my son would be 3 right now) and to be honest....I still beat myself up over it. But please know that in no way is it your fault.

I'm a nurse, and a coworker of mine went into HELLP syndrome with both of her children. She did have to go on maternity leave a little early and be on bedrest....but both of her children are fine. With a little extra precautions and extra monitoring HELLP syndrome can be fixed.

I'm sure your husband didn't mean what he said....or at least didn't mean the way it came out. It's just a man's way of dealing with things.....sometimes they just don't think before they speak.

TRy and take some time for yourself!!!

Bridget

I had the MW this morning, blood pressure is slightly up and there is a slight trace of protien.
I have gone for PETT bloods and have to meet the MW at 10.30 tomorrow at the hospital (she will be in delivery) to get results. Its just a precaution at the moment to make sure that everything is ok and not at a dangerous level, still makes me very nervous though.
Anyway back to work.

((((Hugs )))) Tracey,

Not really what you want to here, I'm sure, sweet :( And I can understand that you would be feeling a bit nervous about it all.

I'm sure everything will be just fine - can they can give you any medication to help, if necessary?


Please let us know how you get on - you are in my thoughts.

Take Care
