Well, Here I am again...I am half way through week 11 and I have seen the darling little heartbeat twice now...I am on all my medications and I am taking it one day at a time. We pray everyday that this will be our take home baby.

Congrats to all that are pregnant again! Hope it's a smooth ride for us all.

Congrats! I wish you a most uneventful nine months! We're on our second pregnancy since our daughter passed away- one day at a time is totally the way to go... and sometimes even just one breath at a time!

Yay! You deserve the smoothest of all pregnancies. We'll be praying for that and lots of reassurances along the way. I delivered at 27 weeks in 2009 with HELLP and I also have MTHFR. We're 32 weeks today and everything has gone ideal... and I'm hoping that continues! It's such a different pregnancy. It actually feels NORMAL! I feel like I've never experienced this before. And I hope you're in for the same.

Thank you for the well wishes, I hope that I can post on the "Pregnant Again" Board for a nice long time! We have our scan on Friday for downs syndrome and blood flow, etc. I am hoping all turns out well - but mostly I am just looking forward to seeing our baby, each time we have seen the little bean it makes it more real!
I have started to show a bit which is fun, makes you actually feel pregnant! I feel so blessed each day we get through with no problems...my BP has been good, my weight gain maybe a pound or two, my energry pretty good until about 8pm, then forget it! One day at a time!

Congrats and good luck! Will keep you in my thoughts and prayers! :D I delivered my daughter at 23 weeks this past October. :( She was born sleeping. I'm now going on 14 weeks, praying a lot, and crossing my fingers. Will do the same for you!
