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.

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
