So I have been teetering back in forth between TTCAL and March DDC the past 3 weeks and don't feel like I fit in either. One group I have been a part of for so long that I want to continue to participate and support other ladies, TTCAL and the other I don't want to fully share all of my fears and anxiety since it would not be fair to the new mothers who have never experienced loss. Then I remembered this group!!

My name is Rebecca and I have suffered the loss of 4 angels in the past year and a half. I am now pregnant for the 5th time. I am 7 weeks today and last week was able to see the babies heartbeat. This journey has been long and very difficult but I do believe that this is my rainbow baby. I look forward to getting to know you all and getting the same comfort and support I have received from any of the other JM groups.

Congratulations! Seeing my baby's hb was the beginning of me starting to think that this one would work out. Before then I always thought "getting pregnant is easy but staying pregnant isn't" even though I've had only one loss. I just had that mentality. Anyways, I'm glad you saw your LO's hb and I really do hope this is your sticky bean. Welcome.

Welcome!! I totally get what you mean about not wanting to scare people in the DDC with your fears... this group is great for that! I've found that I "fit" better with my DDC now that we are further along in pregnancy. In the beginning, I was just on a totally different page than many of the women who were giddy happy with their first pregnancies, or who had never experienced loss. Good luck with this pregnancy!

Welcome and congrats on your pregnancy! Seeing the h/b had to be absolutely amayzing! I always find myself ghost like in DDC's, but here is home. We all share the same anxiety and fears and have that in common, so there is no scaring us more than we already are! Cant wait to follow your journey!!

Congrats - seeing a good heartbeat is such an important step!! I haven't spent time on this board before, but your post makes me think this is the place for me too. I had two losses in 6 months - and now though I'm 12 weeks and things look decent so far, I've still had a tough time getting into my DDC board. Worrying about whether the HB will keep beating is such a different state to be in than who's started buying baby clothes.

Hoping we can all offer each other support and be a safe place to bring our understandable worries, questions, and even joys

Rebecca! Congratulations! I am really excited to see you here, and even more excited that you saw the heartbeat already. This is awesome news.

Welcome!!
I know some DDC's can feel very un welcoming but I have never ever felt that way in this room. Its been nice because a lot of the TTCAL gals I grew to know and love moved over here along with me
