Op again!

I am really touched by everyone's support and kind words here. I truly am. So thank you and thank you and thank you again. I am actually on another forum for group support for people with my condition and I don't think I receive as much support there as here. Most likely it is because everyone there are all too scared and upset.

Reading all yr kind words and thoughts really helps to brighten my day. Also, since mid last week I can actually feel the baby kicking (I am at 18 weeks now) and it has been giving me great comfort.

I was so afraid to bond with the baby or to have any feelings towards it before. The guilt and fear were killing me and making me emotionally unstable. But now with the kicking, I have started bonding with the baby and actually feel "pregnancy contentment".

Emotinally, I am in a very good place right now. I pray that my physical body will follow likewise :)

Thank you again and I am humbled by everyone's kindness.

So glad to hear that things are better!

I'm so glad to hear that things are slowly getting better.  Please don't feel guilty for avoiding bonding with the baby before.  This is a totally normal reaction for a woman with a very high risk pregnancy.  When you (general) know there's a chance for a bad outcome, you put up walls around your heart to keep yourself from getting hurt. It's okay to be scared. When I was pregnant with my youngest I was pretty much an emotional zombie.  You're doing a great job keeping yourself together and healthy.  No matter what happens, you know you can always come here for support.

Hurray for the good updates!
So happy the pregnancy is going better and yay for kicking!
As to your "friend" - good decision defriending her. Good riddance to bad rubbish!

FINAL UPDATE:
Because I am a naturally curious person who likes hearing the end of stories, I thought you might like to hear this one :)

All the lovely thoughts and prayers helped! My little baby was born this morning, full term albeit 11 days early! She has been proclaimed to be perfectly healthy, while my own health has been pronounced to be recovering exceptionally well. We will both be going home tomorrow morning!

I would like to extend my deepfelt thanks to everyone here who has been so supportive, especially through the period when I honestly thought that I was going to lose my little girl. Holding her now gives me such joy and blessings that I can hardly believe how lucky I am.

On other news, my friend has dropped out of the sales company thing. But our friendship has been damaged and we have not been in contact since this thread. She has made no effort to reach out and neither have I. Some friendships are destined to completely die, I guess.
