Congratulations! Happy to hear the good news.
I am currently pregnant myself and had severe PE last time around, and all I can say that this pregnancy is NOT a pleasure cruise and it is hard not be scared. PE leaves most of us traumatized and we lose our "happy-cookie-cutter-ah-I-am-pregnant" feeling and all that comes with it. We need to work harder to enjoy a pregnancy, and on some days it is just impossible. But I take one day at a time, and I remind myself that fear is "only" a feeling that has it's beginning, middle and end. I try to focus on the good moment, when I am relaxed and are successful to keep the anxiety at bay.
It helps me to see a therapist who accompanies me through this pregnancy. Also, I am exclusively seen by an MFM and his team. The staff is trained to calm high-risk ladies down, and they are doing a pretty good job:-)
Welcome to the "pregnant-again" group and I will keep my fingers crossed for an uneventful ride! And let us know if you have any questions. We are here and try to answer as best as we can

Our pain has been put into words, placed into empty cradles, to remember that all our babies lived, that they mattered and always will. - Field of Cradles http://www.fieldofcradles.org/
