Hi, I'm Jodi. I lost a baby last January at almost 20 weeks. Just found out I'm pregnant again, EDD 8/19. I'm happy and excited, but very nervous as well. I was never given any answers to what happened with my last pregnancy. Previous to that, I've had 3 wonderful healthy pregnancies, I've got an 11yr old DS, a 9yr old DD, and a 6yr old DS. I'm hoping I can find some friendship and support through these interesting and difficult months ahead.

Welcome and congrats on your new pregnancy!! I'm sorry for your loss, loosing a baby is such a hard battle to fight through.  This is the perfect place to come with all your fears, worries, and great milestones of pregnancy after a loss... Praying for a happy healthy pregnancy for you :).

hi jodi!  elizabeth here from the august 13 EC as well.  we had our m/c at 5w in between a healthy pregnancy w/dd (4 1/2) and a high-risk pregnancy (GD) with our DS (1 1/2).  i'm due 8/28, but depending on whether my doc starts counting from wednesdays or not, i'll have a repeat c/s on either 8/20 or 8/27.  he does elective repeat c/s on tuesday of the 39th week.  have you had your first appt yet?  mine is jan. 3.  h/h 9m to us both!

Thanks for the welcomes. Smile Elizabeth, how cool that we're due so close. I don't know how my dr will do things, but I'll likely be pretty close to the end of Aug, I have been overdue and had to be induced with my 3. My first appointment is on the 7th, I'm pretty anxious. My dr is great, and was really pretty upset when I lost my angel last year. He was crying in the delivery room with the rest of the family. I'm hoping I'll get a peek at the baby when I go in on the 7th, keeping my fingers crossed.
