Halloween PGAL brain moment — The Bump
Pregnant after a Loss

Halloween PGAL brain moment

Everything logical in my mind keeps trying to clamp down on this sudden PGAL brain resurgence since it hit me last night. I wish it would just go away, but I think it's probably going to stick around until our a/s next Tuesday *sigh*. I'm having this irrational fear that since I still haven't felt anything but maybe a single instance of flutters 2 weeks or so ago, that btwn my last appointment and our next (next week), since I stopped/ran out of the Progesterone supplements, something has happened and bad news is inevitable at the a/s. Had nightmares last night, today's Halloween and while I can't wait to see all the little kids and our nieces and nephews all dressed up and on sugar highs, part of me is sad and I can't shake it off. I keep repeating "I'm only 19 weeks tomorrow, its still so early, its totally normal" over and over in my head, but its not doing much to help. Ugh, brains stink . . .  

Here's some candy for you ladies for listening to me whine ;-) Hope you all have a good one!

Re: Halloween PGAL brain moment

  • Ugh I hate pgal brain! I'm in the 20 weeks now and he didn't start moving a lot until the end of 19 for me. I would cry a lot because he would move as much. Hugs! I hope the kicks start coming soon!

  • ((hugs)) Pgal brain sucks.  I don't think I felt DS1 move until 22 weeks or so.  Do you have a doppler at home?  That might help ease your brain in between scans.  T&P for a good a/s next week!

  • Thanks ladies, means a lot! 

    @aforst - I've toyed with getting one honestly, but stayed away thus far because I think it might make me worse if I'm not able to find it - if that makes any sense. DH is a doc and has a super high tech fancy stethoscope he had to buy during med school though that might actually work, so I may have him break that out and give it a try. We'll see. For now I'm just sitting on my hands and blocking Google search and bumping since work is so darn slow ;-)

  • @FeinBride09 I feel you on the doppler.  Sometimes they just cause more stress.  Have you thought about calling your OB to see if you can come in and have them check for the h/b with a doppler?  I know my dr (and a lot of other's on here that I've seen) says to come in for a quick check if I'm ever really stressed about it.  Just a thought...

    Also, this is from WebMd:
    https://www.webmd.com/baby/fetal-movement-feeling-baby-kick

    "If this is your first pregnancy, you may not feel your baby move until closer to 25 weeks."

    I know it's so hard not to let your mind go to those dark places.  Try to stay positive!!  EAT SOME CANDY!!!  That makes everything better.  :)

  • @aforst (as I shove a min snickers in my month thanks to the awful co-workers who have candy buckets out in the halls) . . . . Candy? CHECK! Haha. 

    And thanks for that link! That's what I keep telling myself over and over and over. Just not time yet. DH and I are both pretty laid back, chill personalities and I'm willing to bet this baby may be too. DH said last night when I mentioned this all to him "I bet its a future couch potato waiting to be born" - coming from 2 fairly athletic bums as we call ourselves. Go play a great game of soccer (aw I miss that :-( ) then come home and vegg out. Haha

  • ((Hugs))  PGAL brain sucks!  I had an anterior placenta with my daughter and didn't feel her move until around 22 weeks.
