Hi Susan - Sorry to hear that people don't understand you wanting to have another. You have a great desire to be a mom, which is way cool [8D] . From the sounds of it, you have a great medical team backing you up, and you're not going into this pregnancy blindly. The fear of what happened to you last time probably will never go away, I know that mine hasn't. It'll always be in the back of your head, but just remember that you have all of us here as a support system [:)] , you have great medical care (bigtime huge plus), and you're educated you "know the symptoms, trust yourself." All of us here have strong desires to be moms, so you're not alone. You go, girl, overcoming your fears! You're not alone, girlfriend!
