Pregnant after a Loss

2nd tri freakout

So I am trying not to freakout but its hard. I am now 14 and some change. This is my 2nd pregnancy, 1st ended in a loss at 9 weeks. Last US at 12 weeks showed a healthy happy baby. Now that I am in my 2nd tri I am starting to feel good almost normal my boobs just get a little sore in the evenings and i know this is normal. But.... I do not like it at all! I am a skinnier person and I still just have a beer like looking belly still. I just want to pop and look/ feel pregnant. Theres been a couple times where i thought i could maybe have felt baby but then i go days and nothing so then i think its maybe gas. UUGGGHH! To top it off my next appt is not till the 12th, seems forever away. Please talk me  down i know I am being illogical right now and everything is ok? This sounds bad i wouldn't mind feeling a little sick again just for reassurance. Sorry had to vent and get this off my chest!
BFP #1 (7/13/12) MC (8/14) 9 weeks. D & C 8/17.
BFP #2 (5/18/13) due 1/26/14. Grow baby grow!
Its a surprise! Team green!

Re: 2nd tri freakout

  • PgAL brain is not fun.  I still have it and I'm 29 weeks +.   I didn't feel my LO move till I was close to 20 weeks, so it could be gas that you were feeling.   I hated when my first tri symptoms stopped as at least I "felt" pregnant then.  From 13-22 weeks I felt perfectly normal except for a little bump.  I didn't get an actual bump till I was almost 20 weeks.  I'm 5'8 and on the thin side.  I'm sure everything if fine!  Try and enjoy the next several weeks because it does change come the 3rd trimester!  Good luck!

  • Yeah it's that awkward in between time for sure. I am 19w and currently my only real symptom is heartburn/acid reflux. I have a bump, and to people who know me I look pregnant, but to the general public, I could just be chubby. I'm ready to have a real big bump, but then there's issues that come with that too!

    You'll get through it, try to keep yourself distracted and busy that helps me!

  • I'm 19 weeks and have no symptoms! The only reason I don't freak is because I feel baby boy on the regular now. Hang in there, you'll feel so much better when you start feeling movement.

    Second tri really is the honey moonphase. The placenta has taken over now, so your hormones have leveled off, which makes you feel less crappy. And 14 weeks is waaaaaaaay too early to feel movement. I"m not saying it can't happen, but it's pretty rare this early. PGAL brain sucks, but everything is probaby fine! Easier said than done, but try to enjoy this part! :)

  • Right there with you sister! I'll be 17 weeks on Saturday, and I am in full blown 2nd tri freakout. My symptoms are gone, and I am 5'7 and fairly fat, so I have no "bump" to speak of. I thought I was getting one, I could feel it when I laid on my stomach, but now when I lay on my stomach I feel nothing. It's freaking me out, damn this PGAL brain!

  • Ugh I hate PgAL brain! I am currently 19 wks and I have just(in the last week) begun to show. Since about week 12 I felt great other than sore boobs every once and a while. Hang in there!
