I've never started one of these before, but I've been seeing quite a few postings from newer folks and I'd like to know a little more about everyone! And I'd like to hear from some folks who've been around but haven't been posting as frequently.
I am 16w5d today. If all goes well, this will be our first baby and the first grandchild for both our parents. Beloved and I are both onlies. I miscarried in 5/03 and was positively despondent. It was a missed abortion @ 10w5d, embryo stopped growing @ 8 weeks. I started spotting and then started bleeding out the following day. It sucked (understatement). I felt so awful, but the worst part was nobody knew why I was such a freak at work. It also felt horrible to have my in-laws think I was defective in some way. This pregnancy has been very different from my last pregnancy. I've had pretty bad morning sickness, all kinds of temperature fluctuations caused by hormonal surges, and a spotting scare @ 11 weeks. It's been rough, but, thanks to the wonderful women on this board, I made it through the first trimester. Last pg was very lonely since I had no one to share with. I think I managed to keep some of my sanity because I was able to communicate with other women who understood how anxious I felt. I will always be especially grateful to Lisa and Angelia (where are you Angelia????) for their calm and thoughtful responses. I am also grateful to Misty Dawn for keeping me laughing (girl, you are too funny!) and most recently Beth (so considerate). Niti, Jamie, Katherine, Krista, and so many others newer ladies, my heart goes out to you. I have been where you are and understand how despairing this time is. Sticky vibes to you all! I'm sorry if I have left others out, we are relying on my terribly unreliable memory here!
Have a good T-day. Luck to us all.
