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'm on my fourth, hopefully, full term pregnancy and I know how it feels to have a miscarriage. I've had two making my total amt. of times being pregnant 6  and even though I have 3 beautiful children losing one still hurts. My first suggestion would be to STOP stressing and just enjoy for now. We can't stop nature or change what we don't like but we can enjoy the good parts. And to be honest I feel the same way, like I should be a pro but I've come to realize that every pregnancy is very different, making me feel like a new comer all over again. I wish the best for you and the lil' one in your tummy.

I only have one child and I have never had a miscarriage but I did have a horrible labor.  I got pre-eclampsia and had to have an emergency C-section.  Then I got enemic and had several seizures I was in the hospital for two weeks.  When I finally got out of the hospital I got a breast infection from having too much milk and I had to go back to the hospital for another two weeks.  It was horrible but I still want more kids and Iwould do it all over again just to have another child.  I am scared though.  I guess all mother's are scared even though we all have our own situations.  So you're not alone I guess the fact that we worry so much about our children and future children is simply because we're good mothers and just want the best for them.  Best wishes for you and you're new addition to the family.
It's normal to worry, especially after haveing a miscarriage. I have 2 children, and I had a miscarriage in 2007. Now I am going on 8 weeks pregnant, and I worry every day. I went to the ER in the beginning of my sixth week because I was bleeding, they told me everything was ok and that they sometimes see bleeding in people who were on birth control. I can only suggest to try to eliminate any stress that you can, and to take it as easy as possible. I hope everything goes well with your pregnancy.
