    Good Morning,

    As I posted on a different part of our forums, I am newly pregnant. Today is my first prenatal exam and I am very nervous. The few people with whom I've shared the news tell me to stay positive, but after two miscarriages it's difficult to do so.

    As I also mentioned, I have recently accepted a new teaching position so there's lots on my mind.

    I am *trying* to stay happy and well for the baby.

    Please, please, please pray that I have the courage to accept God's will with this pregnancy. Please also pray for my peace of mind. I know He won't give me any trials that He doesn't know I can handle. I thank God every day for the amazing and supportive husband I have. For some reason, my moods have been more out-of-control with this pregnancy than the last two. Lots of tears at commercials, etc. :) Could be all the stress with my leaving a school I'd taught at for 6 years... The new position... who knows.

    Sorry this is so long. Thank you for praying for my my husband and me. :)

    Of course you'll remain in my prayers!

    Hang in there. As the song says:

    "One day at a time, Sweet Jesus, that's all I'm asking of you.
    Just give me the strength to do everyday what I have to do.
    Yesterday's gone, sweet Jesus, and tomorrow may never be mine.
    But for my sake, teach me to take one day at a time."

    (I've spent more than my share of time in Irish Pubs, both as a patron and as a waitress. This is one of my favorite songs from those days!)

    You and your husband are in my prayers. One of my close co-workers could have written your post; I've lived through much of this with her for the past several years. Hugs to you as well.

    :hugs:
    My prayers are with you. Congrats on your new position, too!

    P.S. - About your moods, I've heard that when you have more pregnancy "symptoms," it's a good sign.

    Hang in there. I had 2 miscarriages before I had my daughter. Both miscarriages were in the 1st trimester therefore my midwife told me there wasn't much of a concern vs. having them in 2nd and 3rd trimesters.

    Everything will turn out well = )

    :love:Just a quick update...

    The doctor was very nice to my husband and me. Explained that I am high risk (due to being overweight) and that I am 5 weeks along. I go back in 2 weeks for an ultrasound. I'm cautiously excited and very nervous.

    I can not thank you all enough for your prayers. They truly helped me stay calm in the waiting room. :)

    A BIG THANK YOU and HUGS to you all.

    I am very excited and very nervous. My husband and I travel to Boston this afternoon to visit my mom and dad. A good "dose of home" as my nana called it will be good for me.

    I really and truly appreciate all your prayers and kind words during this time. :)
