Hi ladies, I am new to the group looking for ladies who know what I'm going through. I am 25, married yo an amazing man who has been my rock through the hardest things I've ever gone through. We are expecting our third baby after 2 incredibly hard losses. In March of 2009 our daughter was stillborn at 37 weeks, 8 months later we found out we were expecting again only to find out it was an ectopic pregnancy. After losing our second baby we decided to put off trying for another baby for a while because of some health problems that I had and I needed to grieve the loss of our babies. My niece was born 30 minutes before our daughter so we decided to enjoy Ryleigh. Derek and I got married Sept 25 of last year and decided immediately we wanted to have another baby, this began a very hard year of trying unsuccessfully to get pregnant. By our first anniversary I was heart broken and ready to give up but we decided to try through the end of the year and if I didn't get pregnant we would go back to my dr. The week of Thanksgiving my husband had knee surgery and kept insisting I was pregnant so I bought a test when I went to get his meds, took it and it was negative. Thanksgiving morning we were getting ready to go to my mom's and Derek kept insisting I take another test so to shut him up I did and to my surprise it was positive. Since I lost my daughter at 37 weeks I'll have this baby at 35-36 weeks, I'm seeing a high risk specialist and praying for a healthy baby in July. Hopefully I can connectsome of you that have been through similar situations. Wishing all of you the best.

I'm so sorry you've been through so much. I cannot relate to a stillborn loss. I've had an early miscarriage, but the emotional toll is nothing compared to what you've experienced.

I just wanted to welcome and congratulate you on this new pregnancy. I hope this one is absolutely perfect, ending with a beautiful baby in your arms.

BTW, I'm Adrienne, expecting our first on 8/19.

I am so sorry about what you have been going through. I am Lovisa and I am expecting our baby about the first full week of September 2012.
I experienced a still birth but not as a late as yours in Nov 2009. Mine was at 20 weeks gestation but the baby had stopped growing at 17 weeks I think.
I joined this section of JM board not to long ago and I already feel the great support the ladies here has to offer.
Welcome to the board and congratulations on your pregnancy.

Congrats on your pregnancy!!!!

I've also had two losses - one at 21 weeks and another at 13 weeks, so while not the same, I've definitely had my share of heartache over the last couple of years. The good thing is that to some degree every woman here can relate to what you are going through and this board has been an enormous source of support to me, especially during the first 20 weeks where I was prone to weekly panic attacks.

Good luck to you!!
