I am so happy things turned out so well with Casey! Did you get preeclampsia with him or did it completely pass you by? I missed the scoop on his birth, his weight, etc. I cannot say enough how thrilled I am for you. Thank you for your message. I am 16 weeks pregnant and always wonder in the back of my head if I'll get preeclampsia again and what the outcome will be. Waiting for the unknown is so hard.

Thank you, T!

I got the avatar for AmandaB's Maija... You need to check it out she's beautiful...

And I was thinking that one of the first improvements that we need to do to the website should be to add a page with photos of kids that were born after a loss from preeclampsia... Have Majia and Casey and all the other kids, and then add your guy Julie, and other ones as they arrive. For months after I got to the Forum, I thought there is no hope, I will have pree again and it will be bad, now I think that pree will come again, but things might still be well.
We can add your message on the top of the page... it's so beautiful, T!

We need to give this to women that come here after a loss... there's still hope.

Thank you for the inspiration T. At times I get this "irrational" fear that I just cannot have another child. I'm in an "I'll believe it when I see it phase. Thank you.
