I pop in here randomly, but I am not on the internet like I once was (no time). I feel badly about that because this board was much more active when I had my stillbirths, and it was a great source of comfort and support for me.

The nerves are normal, as are mixed feelings. Pre-stillbirth, the game is very simple. Find a mate, get pregnant, have happy and healthy little babies, live happily ever after. Loss strips away the blinders, and instead of thinking "Stillbirths - how sad! I feel so badly for all those mothers that have to go through that", it suddenly becomes "Stillbirth happens to me. Bad things CAN and DO happen to me.", and then every risk and worry becomes magnified a hundred fold. I see that you're pregnant again - Congratulations! I hope that you are able to relax and enjoy your pregnancy, though I know first hand how difficult that is. Take care.
