Some of you know me from TTCAM, but for those who don't I'll introduce myself. My name is Kelly. I'm 28 yo. DH is J, also 28. I have 2 dogs, a 7 yo choc lab named Jazz and a 15.5 week old red doberman named Karma. No kids, yet. I've had 2 m/c and a chemical pg. The 1st m/c was missed - discovered at 8 wk appt. and had a D&C. The 2nd was natural at 5 wks.

The good news is that I've made it passed the mark of the 2nd m/c. I only found out I was pg for sure yesterday w/ a +HPT. The bad news is that I'm terrified that this will only end in another loss. I can't really be all that happy about it, yet. I don't know how far along I was when the baby died in my 1st pg since it was missed, but nothing showed on the u/s at 8wks, so I know it was early. Hopefully, I've passed the mark of that one, too, and this one is fine. I had a whole bunch of tests, and all came back ok.

To sum it up, I'm glad to be here but scared that I won't get to stay. I hope I can hang out here for a good long 9 months!

Yea, Kelly!!! Congratulations!!!

Welcome to the PAL board. I remember you from TTCAM!!! Your feelings are totally natural and shared by almost everyone, if not everyone on this board too. I was so afraid when I got my BFP, that I didn't post here until almost 8wks, I think. hahaha All I wanted to do was hang around TTCAM!!! I still can't bring myself to post regularly on the Sept EC board, and I'm almost 19wks!!! hahahaha

Hang in there!! We are all thinking about you. This is a wonderful board, and I hope your stay here is a long one. :o) Here's to seeing more of your posts here. :o)

HUGS and SBV's!!!

YAY Kelly!

What a wonderful surprise to see your post. I haven't been on the TTCAM board much as I have been hanging here (and not on as much as I used to be!)

I look forward to hearing your daily progress and your stresses. We all have them! LOL.

OMG!! Kelly!!

I'm so happy to see you here!! Congratulations-- I still lurk at the TTCAMC board, but somehow I missed your news. That's so wonderful that you've already surpassed your 2nd m/c date.... I'll be praying that this is finally it for you.

Can you believe that just two months ago we were both in mourning over our chemical pregnancies? It was such a disappointment, which makes it doubly sweet to be here now. Hopefully we'll get to stay. I'm only about a week ahead of you or so... how far are you? I've been on pins and needles for two weeks since I got my news... this board is a great place to get support. Welcome!

:) Sue

Welcome Kelly!

I recognize you from TTCAM! Congrats on your pregnancy! All I can say about your worries is that we all understand. It's so hard to be excited or optimistic about a new pg when you've dealt with loss. You're so worried that history will repeat itself.

With this pg, I started spotting at EXACTLY the same time as with my first pg, which ended up being a blighted ovum. Of course I freaked out and was convinced I was going through exactly the same thing as before. And two weeks later, at an early u/s, DH and I actually saw a heartbeat! That made me feel better, although with the spotting still around I don't feel 100% sure about anything.

Just take things one day at a time. As time passes and you get through some of your own personal milestones, I think you'll start to feel a little more at-ease. The worry never completely goes away, but it definitely does get better.

I am praying that you have a H&H 9 months!


Finally pg with #1!

Kelly - I am SO GLAD to see you here! Welcome to Pg after a Loss....I am so, so excited for you. I definitely remember you from the TTCAM board. There have been LOTS of TTCAM Grads's so wonderful.

I'm sure you must be a nervous wreck. I remember the first 12 weeks of my pregnancy were filled with anxiety, fear and lots of tears. I think it's like that for most of us here.

Each weeks that goes by, you'll feel more and more confident. I pray that the first 12 weeks fly by for you and are totally uneventful!

So glad you're here and I look forward to chatting with you!
