Hope to see you ladies again in the next few months under better circumstances. If not, good luck with your rainbows!


SS, Mama! Hope to see you back soon!

I hope everyone else is doing well! :0)
So exciting (and exhausting) to have two close together!

Re: Pregnancy After Loss Thread

Yesterday we saw a family with a newborn and I told DH that seeing the baby made me *really* want another one. He laughed at me and said "good thing, because it's a little late to change your mind!"

It's weird because even though this is my 32nd week, and baby is very likely to survive and be fine if born now....I still can't accept that we're REALLY going to FINALLY have a baby to take home. I keep thinking that just because everything is okay at this moment, doesn't mean that 8 weeks from now we'll be home with a healthy baby, KWIM?

It's strange to be 8 months pregnant and still in denial, but I know you ladies would understand!

I totally do. I might breathe easy when the kids are 50 years old. But then again, maybe not.

I can never feel my uterus and I'm on #6 too. I think you're just talented

I'm so happy for you with your new little one!

Re: Pregnancy After Loss Thread

Just wanted to say... I'm getting kinda excited... if you go by my ultrasounds, it's the second tri!!! But I know my dates are right so I'm going by lmp... and I've got to wait another week to celebrate. Blah. At least it's getting super easy to find the hb on the doppler... it's so reassuring.

Exactly! One of my favorite quotes about parenting is "having children is like giving your heart permission to walk around outside of your body"....sooooo true!

Heeeeey it's quiet in here!

I had my dating ultrasound today and everything looks good. Heartrate is 150 and there is just one kiddo in there. Now I can relax a little... I hope everyone else is doing well!

Woohoo Alice!

Congrats again Lauren!

Just wondering that since this thread is mega long now perhaps we need to do monthly threads?
