A little Google is a dangerous thing

Our son is not quite one year old, yet the news of my sister-in-law's pregnancy has hit both Mr. W and I hard.

He finally admitted today that if we hadn't had the miscarriages and the bedrest and the premature birth he would want another child. Except that we did have all of those things. And he fears that while we got extremely lucky one time, it isn't likely that we would walk out of the NICU as unscathed a second time. His believes that the odds are stacked against you to have an easy time again.

And it really sucks that I can't just enjoy my soon-to-be one year old son without wondering if it's the only time that I will experience this type of love. If it is, it's more than enough. But I'm not over this feeling of being cheated. Not by a long shot. It's why I've just spent the last 10 minutes googling unicornuate uterus and chances of preterm labor and various other combinations of key factors. (Remarkably, when you google it all together? You find NOTHING of much use)

A little Google can be a scary thing. Good luck with whatever you decide to go forward with.
Just wanted to wish you and the lowercase and the mister the best of luck for tomorrow's procedure. No doubt he'll come through with flying colors.

Hang in there...this is a mere blip on the radar.

Thinking of the three of you :-)
If you ever want someone to talk to... I am here. I'm the same place as you are - unicornuate uterus, bedrest, premature baby, etc... wanting a second... not sure how exactly we'd pull it off. My OB says he feels we'd end up exactly the same place even with a cerclage... my Peri was a bit more encouraging. In either case, it's not going to be easy for us.

Good luck for the future -
