Hello everyone. I've been here before, but for those that don't know me, my name is Laurie and I lost my daughter Eva at 24 weeks and my son Declan at 25 weeks. Both were unexplained stillbirths. I've also had a ruptured ectopic and a miscarriage. I am currently pregnant again and due September 28th. I am very worried, stressed, frightened, doubtful, neurotic... You name it! I am hoping to join you on this board, and have a (hopefully) better ending. I look forward to getting to know all of you.

Thank you everyone for your kind welcome! I feel pretty terrible about showing back up here. After my last loss, I just left JM because I withdrew from all things 'baby, pregnancy, loss, ttc' related. When I did finally poke my head back in and saw how many wonderful people were concerned about me, I felt like an absolute heel. I still do actually.
Kelly, I am over 15 weeks at the moment, so out of the first trimester. One down, two to go!
Megan, I'm sorry I didn't mention it. I've been super weird about this pregnancy. I basically survived the first tri by pretending that nothing was happening. I continued to make plans for a trip to Disney in October (which wouldn't happen with a newborn), and look for new jobs etc. I am just starting to tell people, and it is only because DH said that I am too round to hide much longer. I won't probably add my name to the due date list or get a ticker because it feels like I am tempting fate or something. I am afraid to unpack my maternity clothes and I don't want to discuss it with my mother, which is not something she can understand. I just feel like it isn't meant to happen for me, and no matter how much I try to talk myself around, I am just too afraid of being hurt.
I am being treated differently this time. I am on Lovenox and aspirin, I am having weekly appointments and bi-weekly ultrasounds. I am trying to get confidence from the extra monitoring and the feeling of having control over the situation. I just thought I'd get all of that out so that you would understand if I didn't always act 'normally' about this pregnancy. I don't plan to ramble on about my Negative Nancy thoughts. I am looking forward to hearing about everyone's experiences and all of your loved ones!

I had a hard time pulling out my maternity clothes this time. I just did aroung 25 weeks but I haven't really worn anything from when I was pg the last time. I pretty much bought new things that were less like maternity. I also had to change my belly lotion and deodorante b/c the smells reminded me of the last pg and it upset too much. Since I have been doing the hypnobabies home study though it has helped me to feel comfrotable about this pg and lo.

HUGS Laurie - this breaks my heart a little bit to read, especially since i was one of the many who were concerned about you...you should never, ever feel badly for needing to distance yourself. All any of us wanted was for you to find as much peace & healing as you could, however and whatever form that took for you. I'm thrilled you're back (i really am! ) but I hope you realize you have nothing to regret in leaving, and nothing but support & love here as you return. ((((HUGS))))
