Hi! We are due roughly the same time. I did Hypnobabies with my 2nd child (loved it!) and the other day decided to start listening to my pregnancy affirmations and other tracks, even though I won't re-start the course for awhile. I feel like I need to get my head on straight here. I'm on high-alert for pre-e problems of course, but at the same time I want to enjoy this (quite likely) last pregnancy and not be overly fearful. It is hard!

Feeling any kicks yet? Those early movements are the best!

Hello and welcome. Being pregnant after having had preeclampsia in a previous pregnancy means (to most of us) finding ways of dealing with anxiety, panic, and whatnot. I think I never noticed my body and its doings as much as during my second pregnancy. Every twinge was carefully evaluated. And oh how many times I called my docs office :-)
It is unfortunately totally normal to feel the way you do. Around here the motto is one day at a time.
Let us know how it goes. Sending you hugs :-)

Hi there, I am brand new to this site/forum community so I hope I'm doing this right.

I have a BEAUTIFUL 16 month old daughter who was born after a very "adventure-filled" pregnancy & three days of labor via c-section. I am now 17 weeks along with our next sweet bundle of all things wonderful & I feel like every day I am losing my mind just a little bit more. So far, so good! Yet, if there's even a strange twinge or anything, I'm completely panicked. It is like I am just waiting for something to go wrong. I had multiple 8 days stays at the hospital through my pregnancy with my daughter..and nooow? I've been fine! Granted, I'm not to the point in this pregnancy that I was in that one when things started to get hinky & I was diagnosed with preeclampsia..but I just feel like a total nutjob. I don't know how to just be "normal pregnant"..I don't know how to not freak out over having preeclampsia again and in a twisted way almost wanting it because it was MY "normal"? (I can't believe I'm actually typing that!) I am just a bundle of emotions and sheer panic half the time...well..when I'm not chasing little missy around. I feel like I just don't know what the heck I'm doing! We were SO BLESSED to have our sweet girl arrive healthy albeit a bit early! Why would I want to go through all of that again?! And in the same breath I'm saying, OH PLEASE NO!

I'm a mess. :?
