Gut feeling I'll have a stillborn help. Trigger pic pg 52 UPDATE!!

Posted by   + Show Post
Pics on page 52 & 54



Throughout my pregnancy things haven't felt right at all, at first I worried about mc then incompetent cervix and then me dying during birth, but I worked all through these fears until I reached the word stillbirth, then something rang in my body like no other I had this awful knot in my stomach and still do, even buying baby items I'm very uneasy like I'm forcing myself to buy them but she won't be wearing them.

I never felt this way with my son, I was so happy with him and excited, with this one I feel no connection and kind of angry when she moves because I feel it's all going to be taken away from me I just don't know when, it's like my brain is preparing me, I guess I started grieving before it's even happening, when people talk about her the knot in my stomach happens, it's so very weird. I pray to god it's just anxiety but a part of me just knows I won't bring my baby home.

I was searching the internet to find others who have felt this way and felt so strongly about their feelings and even after everything it all turned out ok, but I never found anyone who felt this way and everything turned out fine, everyone I read has confirmed my fears.

I want my baby girl so badly! I had a mc before my son and had this feeling that's why it's scaring me.

I pray to god my fears and premonitions don't come true, but it's not looking positive.

Please tell me if you've gone through this and how did things turn out? I've already told my df to get prepared, and to cancle my baby shower.

It doesn't feel like normal anxiety..... It feels like a strong intuition.

**UPDATE**I DELIVERED MY 9 Lb 2 oz BABY GIRL SOPHIA MARGARET (JUNE 4th at 12:25 A.M.)I CAN'T BELIEVE I THOUGHT THE WAY I DID I REGRET BEING SO WORRIED! THANK YOU ALL FOR EVERYTHING!! IM THE HAPPIEST WOMAN EVER!!! SHE IS A JOY AND I LOVE HER SO MUCH!

Oh heck, don't. They hear stuff like that all the time and he WANTS to reassure you.

I'm terrified to talk to him about it, I feel so stupid.

I'm 30 weeks today and yes my baby is moving like crazy right now, I just have this feeling I'll wake up one day and it'll all be over, it's a very strong intuitive feeling.

Quoting MichLW69:

How far along are you? You can feel the baby moving and kicking right?

doesn't he listen to the baby's heart beat every visit?  You need some counseling right now this is not good, and when everything turns out fine your anxiety is going to carry over into mother hood...get some help

sounds like anxiety. dont think about it so much its going to make you stressed and hurt the baby. be calm. imagine and visualize your baby alive in your arms. I felt this way with my son, i was just scared to death of anything happening to him. hes alive and well and a happy kid.

Even if it is intuition, this anxiety is negatively effecting you and your baby.  You need to talk to your dr about this and consider getting on an anti-anxiety meds.  If you don't get this under control now, if your baby is healthy you are primed for post partum depression.

 Dont feel stupid.  You are not the only one to have these feelings.

If you feel the baby, how do you know you're having a stillborn? I think you need to calm down before you do cause your body to be under too much stress and something to happen.

If it was up to me I'd stay in the hospital and be monitored the whole time until I deliver but I know that won't happen, and I feel like no matter how much reassurance he gives me I won't think any differently.

It is a very common fear to have actually I would talk to the doctor about out it though, he might let you hear the heartbeat to calm you down.
