Houst congrats on the baby and I wil keep you in my prayers. I am having conflicting emotions as well and I am just ttc when/if I do conceive I am sure I will be a basket case.

Sha hope that all goes well with your peri! I think we all feel that our little angels are watching over us and protecting us, I know I do.

I did break down and decide to chart my temps, but no opk yet. I hate those things lol. This is only my fourth day charting so am not sure if I will be able to figure anything out this cycle or not.

I know what you mean about being scared. I'm 13 weeks pregnant. I keep thinking that that in another 13 weeks I'll be at the same place in pregnancy when I delivered my first. I do believe that my chances are better because the doctors are watching me closer and I am so much more proactive with my own care. I do say the same thing to people who want to plan trips with the baby. It all depends if I carry full-term. I really think that is a realistic answer, no matter what your inlaws or friends think. It is a strong possibility I will have a premature baby, especially since I got PE before 28 weeks. I just hope my pregnancy will last longer and I have a baby that will overcome the effects of prematurity. A lot do. I saw remarkable things in my 5 1/2 months in the NICU with my son. Of course I will just be estatic if I make it full term.

Good luck getting pregnant. I'm no help there. I got pregnant both times the first month I tried. Luckily some of the other women have been more helpful there.

Good luck! It takes courage to start again.

The truth is, people who have had uneventful pregnancies never think twice about things going wrong - and why would they?? My family always downplays my experience with the birth of my son, who was born at 36 weeks by emergency c section due to severe HELLP syndrome. I was put to sleep as the anastesiologist was afraid I would not clot (platelets at under 40). I will always be sad I could not be awake when he was born, but I am forever grateful he was ok.
Funny thing, I recently had a miscarriage at 7 weeks, When I found out I was pregnant I was so concerned that I would develop pre-e, etc again that I didn't really expect this. I guess you never know how things will turn out, but I really want another child, so we will definitly try again!
Good luck to you all!!!
