Pregnant after a Loss

Quick Intro

Hi Everyone,

I had been pretty active on the TTCAL boards after my loss back in October. My DH and I stopped trying in February, per recommendation of my OB, my immunologist and my PC, as I had chronic hives and multiple anaphylactic episodes with no positive allergies over a period of 3-4 months. Waiting for confirmation on a diagnosis of Mastocytosis. 

Anyway, flash forward to this past Tuesday and surprise, I'm pregnant. I'm so happy and completely terrified. Doc has already taken blood tests to check my progesterone levels (low progesterone was the issue last time) and everything looks great so far, which is great.

But this potential diagnosis scares the crap out of me, since it can come with some scary complications during pregnancy (increased risk of miscarriage, preterm labor, preeclampsia) and labor (full blown anaphylaxis).

Any who, that's my current deal, and all that I will be freaking out over for the next 35 weeks. Eek.
