I don't know, I really want to but I am like you I don't want to jinx myself..
I lurk over there all day though I just don't know I think if I make it through this week I might start feeling a little less nervous Cuz when I had the m/c I had a normal period and didn't know i was pg till i was like 6 weeks So i think if I don't have any kind of blood during this week when I should Have my period that it will help me to relax a little
I don't know I am still freaking out! Every little ache or pulling totally freaks me out and I run to the bathroom to see if i am bleeding so yay I don't know if I am quite ready to join yet :S

WHY DOES THIS HAVE TO BE SO DANG HARD!

I introduced myself before I even knew for sure I was pregnant! lol!!

But I think I'm a little different. My loss was at the end instead of the beginning, so I figured it didn't matter when I joined.




I say go for it too!

YAY!!! Glad you went over to your DDC and said hi!

I joined mine at about 5-6 weeks but I laid low for the 1st trimester. It was really hard seening other girls go through a loss. I tried to be as supportive as I could and dirrect them the loss board (my former home). But it just scared the heck out of me. You might consider this in the next couple weeks. No reason to stress yourself out more.

That being said...I LOVE my DDC now. I started to get more active in the 2nd trimester and now I have a couple of good friends in there....kinda funny b/c a few of them are pg after a loss too. It is funny how we seek each other out.

Thanks ladies

Dee i definatly know what ya mean. I think my biggest motivator is im seriously considering appliny to be a co-host. I just dunno though. Id have rather gotten TTCAL because i feel like i have more in common with everyone in there, and i dunno if im cut out to host a playroom. lol

I joined almost right away, but now it is getting harder to post when I am seeing so many ladies leaving us. It just breaks my heart to keep seeing more good mommies losing their baby's. So I am kind of staying away from there, because I just can't have all of those thoughts in my head. kwim?

The only thing that keeps me going back there is the fact that I keep telling myself that this is a different pregnancy, different baby, and this one is going to be coming home with me in 7 more months!

Rhonda, I definatly know what you mean about being around that. It scares me because i know that there have been 2 ladies already with a loss, and im sure more are to come. I hope for all of them that no one has to go through it.

I think thats a great attitude to have btw about this being a new pregnancy, and a new baby. You WILL have him/her home in 7 months!!! Keep baking that baby!

I joined mine (October 06 lol) pretty much straight away, and was always a fairly regular poster.... I sometimes felt as though I didn't fit in *a little*, although that's possibly due to the fact I'm in New Zealand & was over the otherside of the world from everyone, except for one - so all the talk of the health care system etc didn't really make sense to me..... BUT it certainly was a great place to be - hearing other Mama's talking about something I was going through, it was a good source of reassurance

I introduced myself right away, but didn't really post in there until I was past my milestone of my m/cs. After that I slowly got to know everyone. I agree with the others though. It is hard to see people having losses. We had another just recently. The baby had stopped growing at 12 weeks and she went into labor at 16 weeks. So even when you think the 1st trimester is over, sometimes it's not. It was heartbreaking. But all you can do is be there for them. I think it is good if you can take you own loss(es) and use your experience to help someone else. That is one of reasons I can't leave TTCAL. I think it's good that you joined. I think you will be just fine. And those ladies are lucky to have you over there. B)
