Emotional basketcase

It's been a really rough day for me today. I can't convince myself that things are ok, yet I have no cause to suspect that they aren't. I'm just such a mess. Here I am, knowing that I'm 22 weeks and things have been (relatively) good.

Maybe it's the fact that when I had all my workups and tests done last summer, fall and this past winter several doctors gave me the same story. The peri, my reg. OB, and the RE all told me that with my unicornuate uterus, I could expect more losses. The peri actually told me that I had a high likelihood of second trimester fetal death -- specifically, she said between weeks 21 and 25.

The RE told me that he felt certain I could probably carry to 30 weeks. And yet I can't shake the feeling that something bad really could happen.

My dear! That IS a heavy load to be worrying about. I don't think there's anyone of us out here who wouldn't be feeling the way you do in this circumstance. I'm thinking of you.
Agreed... this is so hard and emotional to begin with and having all that info we become so full of echoing in your head while you are confined can't help. Would your OB get you in for another ultrasound? It might help abate the fear a little.

Rooting for you and little w all the way.
