This is my first post in the June due date club and I was scanning over the thread titles trying to think of where to start...and I saw this one. We have lost three babies and we have two little ones (dd 5, ds2). I am glad that this thread has been started because it is so different during pregnancy once you know you're a high risk to lose the baby. It will be helpful to have somewhere to talk about the ambivalence and the hesitancy to get fully invested in the new pregnancy. We don't tell many people until my pregnancies are about to become pretty obvious. We have found that it is easier than comforting those people (various family, casual friends) who are an emotional drain in the situation and not at all helpful in our healing. This pregnancy will be a bit different, though, as our oldest is fully verbal and very interested in embryology. There will be no hiding it from her until 15 weeks or so. She is at my elbow right now but, thankfully, her reading is limited to "no, zip, stop, mommy, daddy, etc..).
