Pregnant after a Loss

Anxious - intro

We found out a couple weeks ago that we are expecting again but I have just really started to realize how terrified I am.  

I have a beautiful 2 year old girl who took 18 months to conceive but had no losses in the process.  My husband and I have been trying again for #2 for about the last year during which we had two losses. The first one, I knew something was not right from the beginning.  The second one felt right but I ended up finding out at 6.5 weeks that I would eventually miscarry and I did at 8 weeks.  

So, here I  am again.  6 weeks and 5 days.  I am under the care of an RE and things look good but am having a tough time being happy because anxiety has taken over.  We have only told a couple close friends and my mom.  I feel pretty terrible most of the time and when I'm not feeling well feel guilty that I am not more active with my toddler.  When I feel better, I'm consumed with the thought that this too will end on a loss.  I am hoping to find comfort in knowing that I am not alone!!  FX that all will have sticky babies !!
