So im new here at JM. My first child, a boy was still born at 29 weeks in June. I just found out yesterday im expecting again. Im so excited but a little bit anxious. I was referred to thisMessage board. My doctor said it might be helpful to communicate with some mothers who have had successful pregnancies after m/c and stillbirths!!! So anyways HELLO!!! So far i have recieved a really warm welcome!!

So i was thinking i should let ya'll know a little bit about myself. I am 22. DH deployed to Afghanistan 2 weeks ago today. We have been married since Oct 12 2010. We were high school sweethearts who happened to meet again by chance. We found out we were pregnant in January, 2011 two days before my birthday and we were so thrilled. When we found out it was a boy DH cried. (Something i have only seen him do twice the entire time i have known him) We decided on the name Aedyn James. Then around 29 weeks i started having unbearbale pain in my abdomen. DH was in the field on a mission and was unreachable for a few days. When i went into the doctor they told me the baby had no heartbeat "and these things just happen". I was able to get ahold of my hubby's SSG and he was home within a few hours. on June 29th at 742 am i delivered a beautiful angel boy.
Yesterday i went into the hospital for a routine check up and to get some blood tests done (im anemic, have been since i was a child) and the doctor came in with the great news. I have another appointment tomorrow to find out how far along I am... I am so excited but so very nervous. I want everything to go well. Havent been able to get the news to DH yet (being deployed and all) and a part of me wants to wait until i know everything is going smoothly....
Well sorry this was so long i just thought i would give you all some information

Welcome! I'm so sorry about your loss, but congrats on your BFP! I hope you have a very happy, healthy and uneventful nine months and get your little rainbow baby!

This board is really great... the ladies here are all so supportive and they understand all of the extra fears and worries that come with being pregnant after a loss.

Any idea when you might be due?

Congrats again!

I am due 2 days after my 1st baby that we lost was due. At first it would upset me at times but now I try to look at it as my angels are watching over this one. It comforts me at times.

Best of luck at your appointment tomorrow, make sure to update us!

Welcome to the board!!
I understand the date thing. I lost a May 2011 baby this week last year. Now I'm due in May again. It's scary, but I'm hoping it's a good sign.
