My question is... When did you start feeling baby no.2 move? I'm 15w4d with baby 2 and am pretty sure I've felt the 1st flutters on and off for a few days now just when I'm sat down, I recognise the feeling so well the minute I felt it, it just all comes back. I had a m/c right before this pregnancy and was worried I wasn't letting myself bond with this baby but then them 1st movements I'm completely happy now. Also is not bonding straight away normal for someone who's previously had a m/c?
Thanks for any answers.
I felt DD (my first) at about 14/15 wks...and my DS (#2) right around 13/14.
I think it's completely normal not to bond right away after a m/c...I miscarried before I got pregnant with my DD and I spent the entire first trimester expecting to m/c again so I never really got excited or got into the whole idea...it wasn't until I found out she was a girl at around 20 wks that I really started bonding with her.
with DS I bonded right away, but he was conceived 13 months after a live birth so I was a LOT more confident...still afraid, and I'm sure I always will be, remembering that miscarriage, but I bonded a lot faster.
congrats and give yourself a break - a miscarriage has a whole grieving process attached to it, and just because you've got a new little beanie in the belly doesn't mean the process just goes away.
They are definately baby movements now then :) thanks for your input every1. I'm going to buy the baby something today now I've felt him/her. I can feel the bond growing all the time now. Thanks ladies x
