Also Nato, in response to your post when you were asking about the anxiety meds. About 3 years ago, I came off the meds altogether. Reduced really slowly and felt truly awful with withdrawal symptoms, then crashed completely when off them and ended up on a different drug. The first antid's I was on are renown as being very difficult to come off. The ones I'm on now are easier, but tbh I'm too scared to try. When I reduced when I was preggers with Charlotte, my anxiety rocketed. I believe my problem is mainly chemical and the meds seem to really help, alongside CBT techniques for when I feel panicky. Meds aren't for everyone, but they have really helped me when nothing else did. I would love to be taking nothing, but just can't see it happening at least not at the moment.
Cesca, I hope you've had a fab spa day and the counselling helps with your feelings of guilt. I'm sure you're a fantastic Mother.
Allie, hope you enjoyed your trip, loved the pics on fb!
Add me to the list of symptom losers and spotters....I spotted pink for weeks with Alistair. I think it may have been cervical irritation due to progesterone suppositories, though. And I lost boob soreness all the time. I was constantly poking at my boobs. I spotted red after my scans, for no reason. I actually had random little red spotting most of the way through (like specks).
I'm keeping my fingers and toes crossed for you girls, but I totally understand that no matter how many stories you hear the fear doesn't subside. There's little more disheartening than the feeling of your stomach dropping when you go to the bathroom and see blood while pregnant, I'm convinced. It's an awful feeling, I'm so sorry girls!!
