I read this board every day, but I just don't post...I'm going to try to be more active since there's so many people that I love on this board ....Maybe now that i'm getting farther along it will be easier.

Tomorrow it will be a year since I found out the 2nd baby I lost no longer had a heartbeat...5 days from today is when I had my D&C...It was such a tramatic loss, not only was it so unexpected not even 6 months after Ella was stillborn, but I had so many complications after....I'm only about 2 1/2 weeks behind in this pregnancy than I was with that pregnancy a year ago, which is making it harder to deal with...I have another ultrasound on the 7th, so I hope that helps ease my fear about this pregnancy...I think after having so many back to back losses it's hard not to expect another one....I can't wait to get to the point in my pregnancy where I feel like i'm actually going to bring a baby home....I have no clue when i'll get that feeling, but I hope I do at some point.

I had that problem with my second loss. I was due only 10 days after my first loss so all my dates were so close. I even lost that one within 5 days of lossing my first. It was terrible. Not saying that will happen to you just that I understand how the fears are amplified. My worst time during this pregnancy was right during the week of my last losses. I am praying for you Megan. I love seeing your updates on FB. I am glad you are doing well. We are here for you if/when you wanna talk. We understand the anxiety. I only now feel "safe" but that is because I am over 14 weeks and had a heartbeat check Tuesday. We will see how next week goes LOL. I am glad you are going to be more active we you.

Thanks .:Shortcake:. for my great siggie

Yes Megan, I'd love to hear more from you again!

It looks like a tough week ahead for you. It's so hard to not worry when you are full of memories of what happened before. We are here for you, feel free to vent as much as you want. I'm sending you lots of T&P for a great u/s on the 7th!!!

Hi Megan!!

I am due 1 day from when I was 2 years ago. 2 years ago today I was 6 days pregnant, had our first ultrasound and found out we had a heartbeat! We were so overjoyed but what we did not know is it was slow at around 95 I think. We did not find that out until the following week. April 9th we found out and April 11th was when we had the D&C...

It is scary because I feel like I am reliving that pregnancy all over again.

((hugs)) Nice to see you here!!

Hi! I don't think we've actually "met". LOL I'm Jenny! HI!!!!!

I hope once you have the u/s, maybe you'll feel a little more secure. I'm always nervous though, and I've passed my milestones. I hope everything goes smoothly for you!!
