Sorry I can't write more. I can only peck at my Kindle so it would take forever to write a decent response. I am now past the most worrisome time. I am almost 32 weeks. But I remember the time of pregnancy when I was always reminding myself that I could lose this one very likely. I had two early losses even before the stillbirth loss I had. Plus I am 40 years old, so everyday I had to remember my chances were low of a take home baby. They gave me the same risk-of 60-70% chance recurrence. I think what helped me a lot was was trying to enjoy each day I had being pregnant knowing it could be my last and just enjoying it for the "moment" which is all what we have anyway. I think too that what helped me a lot was seeing my therapist who I'd begun seeing when I lost my twins. I saw her weekly until I was 22 weeks or so. It helped immensely as I could voice my fears, cry, and voice my hopes, and have her listen to me. I am excited and hopeful for you. You (we) are one of the bravest women on the planet, I am not boasting to say it but it's true! Risking another heartbreak and our lives for the hope of a baby in the end.
