I finally convinced my husband to give it one last try for a sibling for my son. We are planning on TTC in August '13. I had set up our pre-conception appointment with my perinatologist this coming Monday. This week I started to panic, worrying about what she might say that she didn't already say last year (that if I suffered another "catastrophic" abruption, I could die)---so I cancelled the appointment.
I know I still have time to see her before August, and at one point I will---but for now I'm just too terrified, I'm somewhat in denial and I just needed to vent.
Thanks for reading.
