I hope its ok that I put this here, but stories like this are encouraging to me, so maybe it will help someone else too.
There is a woman (I'll call her Claire) I know who has had some loss in her life. I don't know the exact number, but I know she has had more than one early m/c, then a she had a late loss, it was something like 6 or 7 months. When I had my loss, a friend told me that I should speak to her. I thought that was crazy, here I just had a m/c and she wanted me to go talk to this VERY pregnant Claire person Then she told me Claire's story. She had had all of that loss in her life and was pregnant again. This was the longest that she had carried and so far so good. Well, last week Claire gave birth to a healthy, but early, baby girl. Both mom and baby girl are doing fine. Her little one has to stay in the hospital for awhile since she was early...if I have it correctly she was just past 8 months, but the baby's weight and all seemed ok for being 8 months. I am so ridiculously happy for her. She is into her thirties, which isn't old by any means, I'm almost there myself, but we all know the older we get and trying to get pregnant blah blah. So I guess I just wanted to share a little about her story because there are a few people here who have had losses and are now blessed again. I can't even begin to imagine the nerves and excitement and terror too, I'll have once we TTC again, but I know that when we do, I'll want to think of Claire. In her thirties, more than one early m/c and then a late loss like that, only to pull through and have her baby girl, early, but again, healthy.
Like I said, I just wanted to share a story with a happy ending. Claire really is an inspiration to me, just like most of the ladies here.
Love and hugs to all,
