Hi  there..

Just wondering how many members we have here.  How far along are you?  What number child is this for you?  How are you feeling?  Please  dont be shy :)  Jump right in and share your wonderful news!  Are you nervous?  Was this planned?  Are you TTC and looking for some positive support?

I'm back!!  My name is Krista and I am 40, Dh is 43.  I was here at this time last year with my 5th son, Will, who was a big surprise:)  Sadly, he had Trisomy 18 and passed away at 14 weeks.  We were devastated and decided to TTC until his due date in October.  That came and went and after another m/c in November (earlier this time), we decided we were finished TTC and that we had our hands full with our 4 boys (6, 8, 10, 13).  I had just come to terms with Will's loss and the hole that seemed to still be in our family at Christmas time, as we left for a family cruise to Mexico the first week of January.  We all enjoyed our trip immensely.  When I got home, I realized I was a day late for AF, took a HPT and the line came up immediately.  Once again, I was shocked!  How could this happen when so many months of charting, timing, etc. didn't lead up to a baby?  I had my HCG levels drawn on Wednesay and Friday;  they were 887 and 1791, and my progesterone was 29.6.  I've always had low progesterone with my other 7 pregnancies and needed suppliments, so I am so happy to see that this pregnancy is making its ownSmile  After finding out Will had Trisomy 18, I have always wondered if I prolonged his pregnancy by taking the progesterone...maybe he would have miscarried early if I wasn't on it and we wouldn't have gone through such agony?  When I found out I was pregnant this week, I wondered what I should do when I got back the low progesterone numbers.  Take the suppliments or not and hope for the best?  I was really torn.  Thankfully, God took that dilemma out of my hands by giving me such great progesterone numbers!  He knew I couldn't face another "what-if" whatever the outcome.  This baby is truely in God's hands and I am just along for the ride--no decisions to be made!  I'm excited, but so nervous.  I would love to have the pregnancy bliss I had with my first four sons--but I'm trying not to get too attached in case I lose another one.  Does that make any sense?  Sorry for the long post!!  I don't feel like I can talk to anyone right now, because no one knew we were TTC and I am so fearful of another loss.

Hope everyone has a wonderful, healthy pregnancy!

Krista
