Hi ladies
I just found this board last week. I've been on JMs RPL, TTCma, and TTCal boards. I'm looking for a place to hang out :popcorn: as I don't feel too comfortable in the ddc.

I'm in my 3rd preg, cautiously expecting our rainbow baby. My losses were in first trimester so I am very anxious as this baby progresses into lucky week 13.

My SO is super supportive but gets overwhelmed by my anxiety so I look to JM and JM friends to cope :) as I mentioned, I just found this board so I've had no chance to lurk! Nice to meet you!

Re: Hello/Intro
Welcome!! I'm so glad that you found us. DDC are great but alot of the girls just don't understand the fear of having a pregnancy after a loss. I'm so sorry for your prior losses but it sounds like this little guy is doing great.

This board is great and it is the only way I made it through my last pregnancy. I was a basket of nerves and could just come hear and get the reassurance that I needed.

My DH doesn't really like to hear all my fears either. He always thinks I'm just being irrational. Please know that we are here anytime you needed and again I'm so glad that you found us.

Congrats on your little one, and I'm sorry for your losses, that's so tough. I've only had one, not multiple losses, and that was difficult enough for me. I hope you feel welcome here and free to talk about anything that's bothering you. This board helped me out a lot too, when I was expecting Kody. Seems like early pregnancy is hardest.

Re: Hello/Intro
Welcome to the board! I am sorry for your losses. I had 2 losses, one before each of my rainbow babies were born. Pregnancy after a loss can be full of anxiety. I had to start telling myself that there was no reason to believe that anything was going to happen.

What is your DD? Sometimes it is hard to be in the DDC, there are more women on there that have dealt with loss than we realize, but not many want to talk about it, this group is full of support and answers!

Congratulations and a H&H 9 months to you!

Re: Hello/Intro
Thanks ladies. I hope first tri is the worst for anxiety, but I have a feeling this anxiety will linger. Im not the most care free person at baseline. My DD is 1/11/14. Thanks for your welcoming posts :)

Congrats on your pregnancy and welcome! Im Lori, and have had quite a few first trimester loss's. I had three in a row before my first rainbow in 2010. Since then, I have gone on to have 3 rainbows and due with my 4th rainbow. First trimester is the worst, but your right, until your holding your little one, that anxiety does linger for me too. Looking forward to sharing your journey with you!

I'm glad you found us here, now I can keep a closer eye on you :p
yea... I'm not a fan of the whole ddc thing anymore. I feel much more comfortable and at ease in this group. There's too many high-strung, opinionated women in the ddc's and it's hard for me to connect. Congrats again and WELCOME!! :smile:

Welcome Sunrise and Congrats on your little one! This is a great group. Everyone is very helpful and understanding of what you are going through. I'm sorry for your losses. But so happy that you are expecting your rainbow baby. I just had my rainbow baby in March.
