I already introduced myself in my other thread, but I'll say hi here too!! I'm 26, wife to an awesome hubby for 8 years, have 3 little ones ages 5 (almost 6), 3, and 1 (almost 2). We have 6 babies in Heaven. So this is my 10th pregnancy. Last year was full of loss for me (4 of them, my last one at almost 10 weeks), so I am doing my best to be hopeful this time! We won't be telling anyone for quite some time. Only my MIL knows, as she's very supportive of me through my losses (she's one of the few people around me who know the feeling), and she's my health guru, so I rely a lot on her. But we normally don't announce pregnancy early anyway...we did that with my first, and we ended up losing it, and I did NOT get that support that I often see used as a reason (I think it makes a HUGE difference if you are surrounded by people who know what it's like to miscarry, than otherwise), so we didn't announce until near the 2nd tri with my others...plus, miscarriage news never travels like pregnancy news, so I hated having people ask me about the pregnancy months later. Except for last time, we told right away, and then I DID almost make it to the 2nd tri only to lose the baby again. So this time I just want to wait, mostly because I don't want their concerns to interfere with our choices for the pregnancy, if that makes sense (most of my family is the "doctors can fix anything" type).
Anyway, congrats to everyone else. I'm SO thrilled to be given this opportunity to share this time with you all, and I pray that I get to STAY here this time! :)
Stick baby, stick!
This is one of the things I love most about MDC DDCs...when you have something exciting to share, but you feel like you can't tell pople IRL, you can tell us, and we'll be genuinely happy for you!
