Joining again after 2 years
Fri, 05-21-2004 - 10:20am
Hi!!!! My name is Melinda. I was here on this board over 2 years ago. I've lost 2 babies at 20 weeks gestation due to having a bicornute uteras. Lucille Jane was born on April 1, 2002 and Tabitha Jane was born on December 27, 2002. I only recently had the nerve to get all of the tests done to see why I lost my girls. So my doctor gave me the go ahead to try again. So here we are 5 weeks pg and due Jan. 21, 2005. Me and hubby are very excited but also very scared. We don't know if we can handle loosing another baby. But I have a good doctor and a good specialist and I think both of them are going to hang me by my toes with this one. LOL!!!! I'm fixing to be introduced into the worlds of cerclage and bed rest. Fun, Fun.

Good luck to everyone,

Well Hello!!!

Welcome to this board. It is a wonderful place for anyone who has lost a baby. I am soo thankful to have found this place. It is so comfortable because all of these women understand the pain of a loss. No one thinks that questions are stupid or silly. Everyone is supportive and gives out advice or helpful suggestions. We are all pulling for you and praying for you. It is wonderful that you did go and get the testing done before this pregnancy. When it is a physical problem or chemical problem and the drs can monitor or "fix" things it is wonderful. Congratulations on your new pregnancy and welcome to the board. Feel free to post often and keep us involved!!!!

Welcome, Melinda! You're going to get along just fine here. The women are sensationally wise and supportive. Also, just wanted to let you know that we recently had a member with a bicornate uterus give birth to her daughter. So, it can be done!

Best to you,

Thank all of you ladies for welcoming me. I am glad to hear that someone had a successful pregnancy with a BU. I am very nervous but I'm trying to be optimistic also. I hope everyone had a wonderful pregnancy.
