My name is Lynda and my son was born sleep at 31.4 weeks on March 14, 2009. Its been just over 15 months since he has been gone, but the pain is as raw and intense at the day I lost him. I miss him so much it literally hurts some days. Its nice chatting with other mommies who have been there and understand.

We just found out that we are pregnant again and I'm so scared and so nervous.....just terrified.

I hope to get to know you all.

We have a subforum called "Our Pregnancies and Our Earth Angels" that you can post about your new pregnancy in. We have several mommies who are pregnant again or just had another baby so there's lots of understanding and support.

Welcome Lynda. I am so sorry about the loss of your son Johnny. It is a pain that unfortunately we all must live with. I'm glad you've found us here. I lost my daughter Lucy 5 months ago to a heart defect. She was my first child.
Congratulations on your pregnancy! I likewise just found out I'm expecting and am just one week behind you. Good luck!

I'm so sorry for your loss. It's going to be almost a year for me in a little over 2 weeks from now since we lost our precious Eric at 39 weeks for unknown reasons.
Congrats on your pregnancy! It's definately tough to be pregnant after the loss, but ladies here are amazing and I find a lot of support here whenever I need it.

I am so sorry that you have to join us on this board, Lynda . It pains us all when a new member has to join us here, but glad that you have found us because the ladies here are really wonderful and you will find amazing support through them.

I'm Stephanie and I lost my first daughter, Katrina, at just before 23 weeks in August 2008. I just gave birth to my 2nd daughter, Rachel, in March of this year, and I'm not going to lie, the pregnancy was extremely tough on me. I knew I wouldn't be able to relax until I literally got to hold her in my arms - healthy and alive.

Congrats on your current pregnancy! Lots of

Welcome. I'm so sorry for the loss of your precious baby, but am rejoicing with you on your new pregnancy! I gave birth to my sleeping angel, Joey, on 4.4.09 at 40w2d gestation. We think he died because of a tight nuchal cord, though he also had a 2 vessel cord and an omphalocele.

I also have a living 6yr old son, Jamie, and just gave birth to my rainbow baby, a daughter: Felicity! on 6.9.10.

Felicity's pregnancy was anxiety ridden and the only reason I made it through was because I stayed so busy I wasn't focusing on my anxiety. We induced at 39w and though the induction was long because my body wasn't ready, we are so glad we did it because it was getting tougher to be pregnant by the day at that point.

Anyway, best of luck to you for a happy, healthy pregnancy...keep us updated on how you are doing! We can relate to what you are going through.

Hey! I am Jennifer and I am new here. I had a baby girl on May 10, 2010 and she was stillborn. I had preeclampsia and the placenta was small. Everyday I think about her and go over in mind what happen. I do have a 4 yr old son and we are going to try again as soon as my husband returns from deployment.
