It was not the happy day but a day filled with tears. We said goodbye to our precious Madison Ann who was their for 5 months 2 days. She died from complications due to her prematurity, Pneumonia and a Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia. Three months prior we took her identical twin sister home. She is now a happy healthy 4 1/2 year old. I am currently expecting a baby in July. I am just over 19 weeks pregnant hoping and praying for a healthy take home baby.

Hugs sweetie, I will be thinking of you and your daughters today!

How is this pregnancy going so far for you? How are you feeling?

Went today to the ob and things are great. Blood pressure was 118/82. Heartbeat was 140 and found right away. She scheduled my c-section for July 23 at 39 weeks and 2 days. Best news is diaphragm looks to be formed and stomach and heart in right spots. Another ultrasound on march 22. So hopefully can find out gender. I am currently just over 19 weeks.

That is great news!!! Are you hoping for boy or girl or don't care? How are you feeling emotionally? My post-preemie pregnancy was hard, but it was hardest right around when things went wrong in my pregnancy with Jim, and then again near the end as I went overdue. Something about being not in control of when the baby would come out, that was a PTSD trigger for me.

Fingers crossed that you have the most boring pregnancy ever!
