Hi everyone, My name is Heather, DH is Robby and I have 2 children, 1 angel and 2 stepchildren. I am also a co-host on TTCAL. We just found out on friday that I am expecting again. I am currently 12 dpo (today) and the lines are progressively getting darker. I waited all weekend to make my way to this board and I am still not completely comfortable with joining a DDC just yet. I am having to take baby steps right now.

On December 17, 2008 I went to my midwife for a routine ultrasound- no complications, no problems. That is when we found out my son, Zachary, had no heartbeat at 17 weeks. I was induced that day and he was born later that evening. We have been TTC since the first AF and were successful on our 3rd cycle

I haven't told anyone but Dh and a few very select friends. I haven't been able to tell any of my family yet. It's not that they wouldn't be supportive because they would, but they grieved just as hard as I did when Zachary was gone. I just don't think I can handle the emotional side of telling them just yet. I am going to wait until I feel the time is right.

JM has been my saving grace with my healing process, I can't imagine how much harder it would have been to process my grief if I didn't have the ladies here to hold my hand. I am hoping this board will give me the outlet I will need when that horrible fear starts creeping up on me again.

So, anyways, it's nice to meet all of you and I hope I will be here often in the very near future!!!


Special thanks to Marie "IBakeBoys08" for my beautiful siggy!!
