I have been pg 6 times now. I only have 2 beautiful boys. I terminated my first pg because I was still in high school and was pressured by family to do so. Then I had my first son the a m/c then my other son then another m/c at 10 weeks in october. Now I am 9 weeks pg again and even tho on thurs we saw and heard a hb i am still scared. I was devastaded after the last m/c because i found out it was the girl i had wanted so badly. Now that I am pg again I am so afraid of loosing another. I dont know how to handle the fear I guess I would just like to find some support and advice.

Hello Heather,

It is so tough when you are living day to day. It is also hard to hope when things have turned out so badly in the past. Just remember that just because you have had two losses does not mean more are in your future. I have had three, and though it is hard to stay positive it really isn't a decision you can make, thank God! :) It just happens. The days go by slowly, but eventually you can look back and see how far you have come. Post often and keep us updated and Hey! Congratulations and welcome! :)

Hi Heather and welcome. Congratulations on your pregnancy! I'm so sorry for all that you've been through. Seeing the baby and heartbeat is such a positive thing! And you're almost past the first trimester, the "scary one".

This is a great place to find support and understanding. Everyone here has experienced a loss, and all of us have been and are right where you are now: pregnant again and scared.

I hope your 40 weeks are happy, healthy and totally uneventful!

Take care,

Linda

Heather,

I'm sorry for your losses. I had an early m/c Sept.2003. In January I found out I'm pregnant again. I'm now 17 weeks along. All of us here can relate to the fear you are dealing with. Welcome to the boards!
