Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

Hi Girls, I'm 27 and really need some advice. I tested positive last Thursday.. I'm 5 weeks and 2 days pregnant :) My husband and I are absolutely thrilled to bits! Just to fill you all in, September last year we got hitched in Portugal, it was the most magical day of our lives. Unfortunately shortly after in November we miscarried our first pregnancy at 8 weeks, although what I passed I was told only looked around the 5 week mark. I've been through a fair bit in my life but that hit me like a train, I found life really hard and honestly, I've never felt an emotion like it. Up until March this year looking back it's as if I've been looking down on myself like I was just existing. I used ovulation apps the lot and nothing happened, my periods were a constant reminder. Come March time we haven't had sex on demand and look what's happened :) :) :) Basically I want some reassurance, I know pregnancy is scary no matter what stage your at but I'm terrified of miscarrying again. I do have more symptoms this time but I'm looking into every ache and pain. I just need to know that there's a light at the end of the tunnel and that I'm not alone! Loosing my first pregnancy has made me realise how much I want to be a mum and I want to enjoy every day even if that means I have every symptom for the full 9 months, as long as I can hold my baby at the end then so be it.
