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.

i had two abortions in my teens and at 21 i became pregnant and decided i was ready to become a mom, i had my son when i was 6 months pregnant and he did not survive. i am not 24 and 2 months pregnant and i want more than ever to become a mom but am so scared that i will lose this child too. Does anyone have any advice? Thank you in advance

I too had an abortion when I was in my teens.  I tried for 5 years to get pegnant with my little guy. Even though I didn't loose a child at 6 mo, I still understand. I personally think your chances of having this baby are GREAT. Fear from what happened previously is just creeping in but I think you have nothing to worry about. Stop worrying and enjoy your pregnancy. :-) Congrats.
