I have been lurking and posting here and there but I am ready to introduce myself.
My name is Melissa and I am happily married to my hubby for 8 years. We have a son and an angel in heaven. We decided in July of 07 to try for another child. In Oct. of 07, we were expecting our 2nd child. We soon found out we were having a girl. Our family was soon going to be complete. In the blink of an eye, our lives were turned upside down. I found out at 27 weeks on April 17th, 2008 that our little girl's heart stopped beating. On that very same day I delivered our little girl, by c-section. She was beautiful. She had a head full of brown hair and looked like her big brother. Our hearts are forever broken. At that point in my life I decided to not have any more children. I couldn't put myself or my family through that pain again. After time we decided to try one more time. So here we are....expecting #3 cautiously. I was a part of the July DDC w/ my 2nd child so it is hard to be here. I am afraid my heart will be broken again. No matter what the outcome is ....this will be my last try. I am excited to be pregnant but yet scared so I hope you all will understand. Thanks for listening!
Something that helps me ...... "loving might mean making chances, but their worth taking." I wouldn't trade anything that has happened in my life.

Hi Melissa! I was wondering how you were doing. I saw you on "ttc" and "aip" and a couple posts here. Congrats again, and welcome to the April board! I'm so sorry for your loss. My heart goes out to you and your family. I have to admit, I'm crying right now. It isn't all sad tears, but some tears of joy that you are expecting again. I wish you a very healthy and happy 9 months, and a sticky bean! We are ALL here for you!!!! I'm glad you decided to introduce yourself! Looking forward to chatting with you some more!

Melissa!! I am sooooo sorry for your loss! I'm in tears reading your story. I know how nerve wreaking it is being pregnant again after a loss. We lost our 2nd DS, Luke, when my water broke at 15 weeks (not nearly as hard as yours). I was a wreak with my pregnancy with Dean. I once heard a quote that said "How do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time" I used that as my inspiration to get through the pregnancy, just one day at a time. I am so glad you joined and will always be here to listen if you just need to vent. I know the girls over at the Pregnancy After Loss board are great too!
