.....with 2 live, beautiful daughters to show for it. :) I am so blessed to have them - I would really love to add a third child (and final) to our family.

Back history:
We had an early m/c (around 6.5 weeks) in June of 2007.
Got PG with DD#1 in July, after one period.
Had 2 back to back early m/cs (4 weeks and 6 weeks) in the summer of 2010.
Got PG with DD#2, after one period.
Had an early m/c (6 weeks) just last month.
Had no period in between and we are surprised to find out we are expecting again.

I am hoping and praying this LO is a sticky one.
I have had 2 betas done (350 @ 14dpo and am waiting to hear the 17dpo results).

Anyways, like I said: reallllly hoping we are blessed enough to have a third, healthy child to complete our family.

I'm so sorry about your losses. I can definitely understand how nerve-wracking it is being pregnant again after multiple losses. This is my fifth pregnancy, with no living children yet. Sending lots of :sticky: your way and praying this will be an uneventful pregnancy for you.

So far, so good. I just had my cerclage placed on Tuesday, so I'm still recovering from that, but doing well. My MFM is worried about incompetent cervix and going into preterm labor so they're being extra cautious with this pregnancy. I think my big hurdle right now is just making it to 24 weeks so that this little one would at least have a chance to survive.
