I dont know what Ive been waiting for..maybe myself to be fully ready to be able to come here and post. I do lurk here pretty often. But I think Im finally ready.

Im Nikki, 20 years old and expecting a baby (aka Beanie or more recently known as Thumper) at the end of August. The father and I arent together, although we are married and have been for almost 2 years. After I found out I was pregnant we kinda fell apart and now he has nothing to do with me or my pregnnacy. Yep hes an awesome father Anywhooo.. I was never really worried about ms to begin with it, its stillbirth that has me worried.

When I was 15 years old I got pregnant, and when I was 22 weeks along I lost my little girl. I named her Olivia Lily-Lucielle and although it was almost 5 years ago that I lost my little girl, not a day doesnt go by that I dont think about her. I miss her terribly and I am constantly thinking about how my life would be pregnant right now and with a 4 1/2 year old running around. I strongly believe that everything happens for a reason and that I wasnt ready for Olivia at the age of 15, 16 when she was born. But I am still scared now. Im worried Im still not ready and something will happen to my baby within. I just couldnt bear for that again..

Anyways so here I am.

The last one was last September at 20 weeks.I never stop worrying. Today I drove 45 mintues just so I could hear the heartbeat and make sure everything was ok.. I think after a loss pregnancy is never easy

Hey Nikki! I agree with the other ladies that pregnancy after a loss is never easy. I have had a healthy baby since my Cora, and I'm still freaked out for this little boy. But I just made it past my loss point (yesterday. We induced Erin so I wouldn't go past, so this is the first time), so it CAN happen!

Honestly, if you ever need anyone to talk to, I'm here okay?


And CONGRATS on your pregnancy! I agree, your bump is really cute!

I am so sorry to hear about your loss. Losses are never easy, but I am sure it was so much more difficult at a younger age.

I am glad you decided to come out of lurkdom and start posting! This is a great group of supportive women and I look forward to getting to know you!
