A Wee Bit Of Panic

So, I finally told Josh last night...I'm starting to worry.
With the last baby, I remember having a "feeling", even before we knew we had something to worry about. I had commented to him that I felt funny and worried something was wrong with the baby.
That same "feeling" has returned.
I'm probably just worrying myself for nothing, I mean, we saw the heartbeat and everything was measuring correctly. But...I'm worried.
Josh wants me to call the doctor, but I won't. Half because I may sound crazy..."Umm, can you check on the baby, just because I'm paranoid?" And half because I'd rather not know right now. Call me crazy, but denial is a beautiful place to live.

i work(ed) in an OB office. after having a miscarriage and getting pregnant again a lot of women would call with ur same worry. most of the docs i worked for would let the women come in just to ck the heartbeat. sometimes that would settle their fear. so call...that is what they are there for. he** they get paid the big bucks..make them work for it. we would rather have patients have peace of mind then worry for a few weeks til the next appt. i always hate to hear patients i was going to call but... u r a mom, a good one, trust ur instincts. if it is nothing then u got to hear lil one's heartbeat yet again. call them..please!!

If you're worried, I would have them check on it! It's probably nothing, you're right, but just for peace of mind, I would do it. When I was pregnant with my second, a close friend had just had a stillbirth and the entire pregnancy, I was worried and my OB was so understanding. Good luck, Leeann, you are in my prayers!

I agree with Erin. I think that you should call and run in. They are not going to think that you are weird, like Erin said, thats why they get paid the big bucks!
Call them, it will probably be just jitters-reasonable of course, but if you wont do it for you, do it for your bloggy friends who are worried sick about you!!

I think you should nip in to the doctor, too. Because, good doctors look after your TOTAL health-- and that includes your peace-of-mind. Happy mummy, happy baby!!

Loads of love to you, Leann--

I think that your worry and being paranoid is understandable at this point -- after all that you have been through, it is understandable. I'm thinking of you and praying!

OH NO...Leeann go to the Doctor. you need to be able to feel peace. go and get the reassurance that will help you enjoy this pregnancy.

you are in my prayers.

I'm praying it's just panic!! And I totally get you not wanting to know right now.

Peace, my friend!

Go in...sounds like the general consensus! Peace of mind is better than panic!

I felt panicked until I started feeling the baby move, and even then I was only not panicking as long as she was moving. The rest of the time I was convinced I'd lost her. So the freaking out isn't weird and I'm 100% positive on your behalf that everything is ok.

Don't be foolish - call the doctor. Doctor's are used to that stuff. Besides, you have the most understanding gyno I've ever met. He'll probably just laugh at you and tell you everything is fine. Put your mind at ease.
