God I felt sick reading that. Hell on earth. I found that in my pregnancy with RJ, because it had taken so long to get her, I just stayed distant the entire time. It worried the crap out of me that I was, but I just had to. Despite knowing, like you, that I was fooling myself trying to be distant from her, I just was that freaking scared, I didn't know how not to do it! Can't imagine your moment of relief. Thank god.


Such big hugs.
I'm glad everything is OK
Wish I had been there to hold your hand through it all.


I've never commented here before, but I've been reading for a long time. There was a moment when I was holding my breath, waiting to read what happened next. I'm glad things continue to be okay, and am sorry that you had to go through this period of anxiety, worry, and complete and total fear.


So glad she is fine. How heart-stoppingly awful to experience those eternal minutes.


OH my word, hun! I stopped breathing as I was reading this, I can't even begin to imagine the fear and panic you had.

Are you on bedrest now?

wow! I think I held my breath the whole time I read this. I can't imagine how it must have felt for you. Big relief!!! hugs to you! Take care of you, k?

Oh, god. How incredibly scary. I am so sorry you had to endure that. It must've been sheer hell. I had been kind of annoyed at my doc's insistence that she do ultrasounds at every appointment (two in one day the day of my NT scan felt like overkill), but every time, before every appointment, I'm panicked, and I'm glad that they insist on doing the u/s. And after reading this, I am glad that they never waste time with the doppler and always go straight to the u/s. There have been one or two times in the past when they couldn't locate a heartbeat immediately, but could see movement, and so we were able to be reassured immediately that they were okay.

I am just still so sorry for you having to experience that kind of horrible uncertainty. Just so sorry.


That is one of the scariest things I've read in a long time...and I already knew about it.

I am so thankful that she's just stubborn. Stubborn but fine. So glad for you. Hugs honey. I hope the next few weeks are uneventful and fly by.


Thank God she's okay. I had the same realisation with mine in the 3rd tri. I also tried to keep distance, but we also had a scare (although not HALF as terrifying as yours!!) and that's when I realised that distance is impossible. Once that baby is conceived, you're involved and attached and your heart is in deep. You're a mother. That's what mothers are and no amount of running away can change it.

Enjoy the last few weeks. They are so precious and it looks like she's stubborn enough to stick around to breathe air.


OH lord, how terrifying! Gah. ;(


I'm not a parent, so I can't possibly understand, but my heart was in deep just reading it anyway. So glad things turned out for the best.
