I am now 16 weeks. It is so exciting to see my belly getting bigger and start to tell people that we are expecting. I was sitting at work on Friday after lunch and felt what other women have described as a "flutter". It felt like a muscle spasm that was very light and it did not hurt. Then it dawned on me immediately after it happened that it was Baby T. I almost busting out crying with joy right there in my classroom. I haven't felt another one since, which is normal. But I can't wait until it happens again.
-"Today I am pregnant and I love my baby." --"I am pregnant until someone tells me otherwise." --"My past does not dictate my future. A previous m/c does not mean I will have another m/c." --"Just because something sad is happening to another poster, does not mean it will happen to you." We all know m/c and complications are not contagious! -- "Hope does not make bad things happen" You cannot ‘jinx’ your pregnancy by creating a ticker, getting excited, or telling someone. Live in the positive! --And this is the hardest one: "There is nothing I can do to prevent a m/c from happening. Worrying yourself sick doesn't prevent a m/c. And if (gods forbid) it were to happen again, I know I will survive."
