All these women on babycenter.com ‘s birth-board for my month (Jan. 2013). All they talk about is miscarriage. Its aggravating, Ive stopped looking at the board because 1. you cant stop miscarriage from happening, 2. I shouldn’t worry myself, and 3. I want to punch them in the face. I understand how devastating miscarriage is, but my main concern is not the first 12 weeks, its the last twelve weeks. When you say something like that everyone looks at you like you have three heads, because not even a quarter of them have experienced how traumatic a stillbirth is. Not only do stillbirth babies pass away, You must actually have contractions, feel labor, remember laboring, and go home empty handed after you held your fully developed, real size baby.
I just got so tired of their complaining. If I even dare bring it up that I have over a half a chance of losing my baby in the third trimester when we are weeks away from meeting him, people will jump on me like Im all crazy and not even care because they are deemed “safe” after the first twelve weeks.
I shouldnt be all crazy about it but I just needed to vent about these psycho women who scare themselves into miscarriage cause all they do is talk about it … crazies, relax and let your body do what it does best and God forbid that time comes, you stand up for your child. I think I would rather get past the first few weeks and feel safe then wonder every day – well closer to the end means closer chances. I would take 12 weeks over 40 weeks of worry.
