I am feeling a bit low and wondered how you all cope.

My daughter was born at 28 weeks, is 4 now and still has problems with her lungs. I am so sorry for the loss of your nephew. Sometime I will tell my tale, it's a doozy! My second child was born with no problems what so ever! (except swollen ankles) but I was high risk and had to go to the dr. all the time, it was a pain in the neck! I had to travel to the twin cities for a specialist who wasn't needed, but the two hour drive was long enough to fight about names! LOL!
I am a firm believer the He only knows what's best. It's just the stubborn us who question. :) It will happen if it's meant to be, for all of us. So here's to us all getting BFP's before the next round!!!

Aww Sthrn :( your post makes me wanna cry. I am so sorry for your m/c and I don't know if the way you are feeling now is an effect from that loss or if you would have felt this empty regardless. I can't put myself in your shoes but I can pass along some ideas to keep you strong. Aside from the worry issue relating to m/c, all we can all do is vent here and try to relax and enjoy the life we have. Life is so short and to stress too much about all of this stuff just makes it harder to conceive and it isn't healthy for us. I try to look at my life and see all of the blessings I have and really try to enjoy those blessings, because there are no guarantees. But right NOW we have people around us that enhance our lives. Let your heart enjoy the beautiful babies you have. Those babies will grow up just fine with or without a baby brother or sister. I am an only child (well my brother died when I was two he was three, drowning accident in which both of us were up from a nap and in the pool, luckily I was afraid to get in past the stairs...). Anyway, growing up as the only child, I really didn't feel a hole in my life from not having siblings. Now maybe, when my mom could use more help it would be nice to have another sibling to share that workload.
