Thank you all for your support. It's very reassuring to hear that is is possible to go on and have another baby. It's also good to hear that everything I am feeling rightnow is normal. I am so sorry about all of your babies. It's so unfair that this happens to so many people.
Ms. Mom - Her name was Trinity Morrigan. She was 3lbs 8oz and 17 3/4" long. That poem really hit home. Thats my story almost exactly.
LEmama - I have a wonderful midwife this time. She knows what I have been through and she knows what I went through with the midwives last time. I really trust this one with whatever happens this time. I know that she will be there for us no matter what.
serenetabbie - People just really dont have a clue sometimes, do they? I heard some pretty horrible things after I lost Trinity. More than one person told me at the funeral that it was "all part of Gods plan". Some people just dont get it.
OceanMomma - Saffron is such a beautiful name. We had talked about that name for Trinity, but dh made the final decision.
I have never done acupuncture before. That is very interesting that they can tell by your pulse that the baby is ok. That must have been pretty reassuring for you. As far as nutrition goes - this time I know a lot more than I did at the beginning of my last pregnancy. I have actually found good prenatal vitamins that I have taken since trying to conceive, I am eating a more balanced diet with more protein, drinking a ton of water, and taking as much red raspberry leaf as I can.
jordmoder - I can't imagine being able to go back to a job like yours after what you went through. You must be a very strong woman. I think having a homebirth this time will definitely help us heal from our last birth. I think that our midwife will also be a big factor in helping us bond with this new little one. Best of luck to you and your family as you wait for your new baby!
