Hi ladies,

I'm Stephanie and last August 9, 2008 I gave birth to our sweet Angel Katrina at 23w 2d. Losing her was the toughest thing we've ever gone through. DH and I started trying again in November and kept trying for the next many months to no avail. The more BFNs I got, the more I was getting stressed out, frustrated, and depressed.

Well, finally after almost 8 months of trying we got our beautiful and we're due middle of March 2010.

I don't think I need to say just how very terrified I am about this pregnancy, but sooooooooooooo excited at the same time. I'm trying not to stress out too much and just take this pregnancy one day at a time.

I understand. I lost my LO at 23w 4d. It was devastating. It was about 9 months later that we got our BFP. I'm 30 weeks now! It can be scary, but I also have had positive vibes deep down even over the scary, paranoia that seems to hang over everything. I never had those positive vibes last time. So I take that as a good sign.

You know I can totally relate. I've been feeling much more confident about this pregnancy. I did worry a lot when I was pregnant and always had some sort of gut feeling (maybe mother's instinct?) that something would go wrong with Katrina. Unfortunately I was right

But with sweet pea here, maybe I'm just really trying to not worry, but I really do feel much more confident and I can actually see us bringing home a healthy, surviving baby and it's such a nice, warm feeling I pray all goes well with sweet pea.
