TTC. . .

A place for those bereaved to receive and offer support

TTC. . .

Postby amillhouse » Sun Oct 31, 2004 11:54 am

I just feel I have to out myself. You guys have been my support and strength - even when you haven't known it, especially those of you who are TTC or are pregnant again.

Well, it's official - me and DH are TTC. I am afraid and excited all at once. I know the realities. When people say, "It won't happen again" I know that they really don't have a clue about all of this and don't want to.

All I can do is do my best - somehow even with all that has happened -I know that God is the only one I can trust to see us through. And I know Isaiah is looking out for his mommy. . .

Thank you for listening.

Anika,

just wanted to say to you and DH the best of British luck with TTC. Yes, you are right, all you can do is your best, and you are now armed with much more information and practical support to guide you on this new journey that you are about to undertake.
I am sure little Isiah will most definately be looking out for you both.

Good luck, best wishes, and a sprinkling of baby dust to you both

Anika,

I want to wish you the best as you start this next journey.
I am also very proud of all of the progress you've made..
-When your nightmare started I was already ankle deep in mine,
but my heart broke for you because I knew what you were going
through. Spiritually you have also made progress.( I know
that some days you may not think so) - A friend told me
the other day- you may know God at a deeper level so you
know him and his powers more than most of us..you know
what he could've done..
Many blessing TTC. I hope that at this time next year you
have Isaiah's brother or sister safely in your arms.[;)]
Much love.

Anika,

I know this is a very happy time also a very sad and scary time for you and DH. I don't think I could have gotten thru my pg with Casey if it wasn't for this board and the great cheer leading section.

I'm praying you get a ++++ real soon!!!!

Keeping you in my thoughts and prayers....

Anika ~ My thoughts and prayers are with you. This is so hard, there are so many emotions. I lost Faith just about the same time as you lost Isaiah. I am currently 9 weeks pregnant and scared to death. I put my trust in God also. Praying that you are blessed with a wonderful pregnancy. Take care,

Anika,

I am sending many prayers your way for a very healthy pregnancy. Fear and excitement seem to go in hand in hand in subsequent pregnancies, I pray that you will feel joy and peace.

Best of luck in TTC, many hugs to you,
