Hello Ladies,

I am finally brave enough to join this board. I have a three year old dd from a previous relationship that my husband has raised since she was 5 months. After we were married I stopped my b/c and it took two years to get pb. Unfortunately I had a m/c in November and it has been a long road to overcome. I know that no one else can ever understand what that feels like but someone who has been through it. My aunt had several m/c and was never able to have children. She told me that it was a "sorrow all your own" and I never understood why nobody knew how to be there. I finally realized that she was right. Everyone deals with it differently. I did find out in Feb. that I was pg again!!!!!! I had my first ultrasound at 11 weeks and everything went great. The baby was sucking its little thumb. I got to hear the hearbeat. My husband and I just held hands and cried. So far everything is going great. I have had some intermittent bleeding which has scared me to death several times but we are hanging in there. It has made me very nervous. I have waited to join any message boards until I felt a little safer. I have been reading everyones posts for a couple days and got brave enough today......so HELLO Everyone!!!!

Welcome, Carrie! Congrats on your u/s! I love watching the baby on u/s!! I'm just a couple of days ahead of you. I have my next appt on Friday and hope they'll schedule my 20 week u/s after that (hoping for end of April, beginning of May).

I'm glad you are brave enough to join us! Looking forward to getting to know you!

Hello Carrie and welcome to the board!

I too have just finally had the courage to join this board today. I have been hanging out in the ttc after m/c board for the last four months and am now ready to be here.

Congratulations on your pregnancy, I hope that things work out for you this time.

Hi Carrie,

I'm so glad you have joined us! I have found great comfort here with all these amazing ladies! My husband & I have a 3 1/2 yr old son. I had an early m/c Sept.2003. In January I found out that I was pregnant again! I'm now 16 weeks along. Everything has checked out fine so far. I was diagnosed with high blood pressure on my first OB appt. My doctor put me on blood pressure medicine and it's working! I've been really nervous this pregnancy. Once I hit week 14 I've calmed down a little bit. But I still worry how the baby is doing everyday. It's gonna be a long Spring & Summer! (LOL)

Congrats on your pregnancy!!!
