3rd time around!!!!

Postby mymiracles2 » Sun Feb 12, 2012 03:12 pm's positive! Feeling a little nervous and sort of forget all of the things i knew with my previous pregnancies. YIKES! I feel positive right now, but a little nervous. I already have 2 children - one almost 5 and one almost 7. I had HELLP with the oldest and preclampsia with the 2nd. Just wanted to check in....Can't tell our family yet, as I know they won't support...which is a little discouraging. Anyhow, I am happy though...made it to 24 weeks with my first and 32 with the 2nd...hopefully we make it further this time :)

Thanks! It would be great to go longer this time around. I see my OB tomorrow, as he has made me feel more comfortable than the specialist:)

congrats! hope you have a very uneventful pregnancy and you're precious baby is welcomed into this world bringing you nothing but trouble! :) :) i've told mostly family and very very close friends. we haven't told my husband's mother because he fears she will be mad that he got me pregnant so soon after losing our precious mychael. he's told his close friends. i totally understand you feeling nervous. my husband, i think, is more nervous than i am. i don't know if it's because i'm in denial or just overly optimistic. anyway, i undertand how you're feeling. just stay positive!
10/17/2011 ~ Mychael Elaine was born sleeping. We miss and will always love you!
9/16/2012 ~ Michael Leon was born, God is so good! Severe pre-e again, induced at 34 weeks, c-section due to baby's heart decelerating with each contraction. 1 week in NICU. I'm done! :)
