Sorry girls for jumping the gun and posting about my crazies, before even introducing myself. For those of you here that do not know me yet:
My name is Andrea
DH is Karl
My angel is Kaiya Rae. She was born June 17th, 2010 after a perfect pregnancy and a long labor. She was perfect and healthy. At 5 months old Kaiya died suddenly while napping and nothing was wrong with her, no virus, no suffocation, no genetic abnormalities, nothing...her heart just plain stopped (SIDS).
Fast forward 9 months, and we are now pregnant with our rainbow baby, and just found out on Sat!
I thought the pregnancy part wouldn't be so bad...that it would just be the baby part and worrying about him/her breathing that would be my only issue. I'm 3 days in, and boy was I wrong!! I decided to join today when I started feeling crazy. Thanks in advanced for all your love and support!

Welcome! I always forget to introduce myself. I forget that everyone isn't already aware of me because I am so awesome.

Andrea I'm glad your posting over here. The ladies here know what your going through so it's always nice to be able to voice your concerns. I wanted to let you know about my story with SIDS. My cousin had a baby girl 8 years ago, she was perfect in every way. At 3 1/3 weeks old she passed away in her sleep. They said it was SIDS. She got pregnant 5 months later and she now has 3 more children. All of them healthy. They did put them all on monitors when they slept for piece of mind and she used it until they were all a year old.

Hi there We don't mind crazy in here...we all have a pretty healthy dose ourselves

Congrats on your pregnancy. I hope it is long, uneventful, and you get to watch your little rainbow grow for decades to come.

I remember when Kaiya became an angel. For some reason, it hit me really hard...imagining how I would feel in your shoes. I remember crying when I found out. For your family and how hard that must be to cope with. She really is a precious little girl and she touched people she never even knew

I wish you nothing but the best. The roller coaster of PAL can be really hard and I think you will have one more dimension of that, given your little one passed after she was born and thriving. But we are here and understand a little of that fear. So hopefully you feel comfy letting it all out!

(Oh...I am Ashlee. I have a 22-mo-old son and am expecting our little man in early October. See, I forgot to introduce too!)

Congrats and ! I am so so sorry about your sweet Kaiya! I'm praying that pregnancy becomes more gentle on you, because I'm sure that the newborn/infant stage is going to be really hard for you. Great big ((((((((((((((HUGS)))))))))))))))!
