I'm 25 weeks today and I just can't believe how fast it is going. I don't know if it is because I'm busier this time around, or if it's because I'm so scared. Scared for my health, scared my 2 year old will resent me, scared I won't bond with this baby the way I did with my son, scared for bringing another baby into this world the way it is now. (She was not planned at all. I was using contraceptives and breastfeeding) my doc says it's all normal. I just feel like a mess.

You look gorgeous. Many hugs. Ever thought about talking to someone about what you're going through? Is your doctor very knowledgeable about your type 1 diabetes?

My doctor is yes, And I'm seeing Mfm every week for my diabetes care. I have talked to several people and everyone says it's all normal. I don't feel depressed, just alot of anxiety. My pregnancy with my son was scary, I wanted my tunes tied after my son but they wouldn't do it. Then they told me I shouldn't have anymore kids.

You are so beautiful and I love your little munchkin in the picture, too!!! :)

I'm terrified this time, too - but because the birth is totally up in the air. I'm planning an intentional hospital birth this time and dreading it on soooo many levels after having 2 out of hospital births with minimal to no interventions. LOL


I totally understand how you feel about the stress of things changing, this is #5 for me, i'll have 4 kids, 7 and under!

Thank you! I had a kind of come to Jesus on Tuesday. I had to take my best friend to the er for bleeding (She was pregnant) and she had a miscarriage. Really made me look at things and have to think that I am blessed to never have gone through that and that I have a beautiful little boy and im at 26 weeks with
A little girl that the doctors have told me is a rock star, already practicing breathing on her own.

I'm glad to hear about your new found faith. I'm sad to hear about your friend too, I have had three children and have never dealt with a miscarriage but several of my friends have so I can relate to your situation. Just stay healthy for you and baby and be there for your friend. Good luck!
