Angie - congratulations!!! I wish I could give you advice on how not to worry, unfortuneately I think I wrote the book on worrying. It is pretty hard not to after you have m/c. I just try to think positive and say my prayers every night. Hopefully, some one else will come up with a good idea. We did not tell our kids yet - I am 12 weeks - and haven't really decided when to tell them. My daughter is 4 and knows that the baby died in mommy's tummy and so we didn't want to worry her until we knew our odds were better at having a successful pregnancy this time. We still don't know when that will be. But I wish you good luck and a happy healthy pregnancy. This group has been a blessing for me.

I also wish I could help you from worrying. I feel kind of robbed from the feeling of excitement and joy, I am afraid to get overly excited. I have a wonderful ds who is 2 1/2 and I m/c in June. And here I go again. We are not going to tell him for a while yet. What a different experience. This pg is loaded with worry, however I have found to just keep on going. What is going to be will be. I have to make sure to allow myself to get excited about it a little. It is hard. I hope all goes well for you.
