I have not had a loss. But I did have a successful, PE-free second pregnancy.

I just wanted to say that I'm praying for a long, boring (uneventful) pregnancy for you!! And we're all cheering you on and will be here for support no matter what :) Keep the baby steps goals!! I think they help a lot - just go 2 weeks (or days, if you have to!) at a time.

I'm so sorry for your loss, our stories are all too similar. I lost my son, Peyton, he was my first pregnancy and was born sleeping on October 25th 2011 when I was 33 weeks. I am just over 14 weeks now, so I can't tell you my story YET, but I hope we will both have uplifting rainbow pregnancy stories to share soon! Just know you aren't alone, I'm terrified too.

Our first child, Peyton Mark, was born sleeping at 33 weeks on Oct. 25th 2011. Developed pre-e at 32 weeks.
Pregnant again with what I pray is our rainbow baby, due Oct. 14th 2012. Will induce labor no later than 38 weeks if we make it that far!

How many of you have experienced a stillborn or precious angel go to heaven after experiencing pre-e and/or HELLP? I delivered my lil angel on October 17th, 2011 @ 23 weeks 3 days. I am now almost 14 weeks pregnant and nervous as crap! I'm just trying to stay positive and hope for the best. Anyway, I was just wondering how many of us lost a little one but went on to have a successful delivery (even if the birth consisted of pre-e and/or HELLP) and the baby lived? I'm so sorry to anyone who has lost a baby. No one deserves it. I think I almost expected, or at least prepared for, a miscarriage. I have Lupus and was 37. So, I went into it praying to get through to 12 weeks. I did! Then, complete unexpected tragedy strikes. I was dumbfounded. I still am. Now, I am just praying to get to at least 28 weeks and then @ that point, I'll pray to get to 32 weeks. Ugh. Just crossing fingers and anxiously awaiting.

Anyway, just wanted to hear some comforting/positive stories for once. Thanks guys! :D :D
