As many of you know, my grandson Ethan died in childbirth 18 months ago. My son Nathan and my wonderful daughter-in-law Alyssa are pregnant again (after terrible grief and trauma).

Just keep a hand on my back, folks. I am terrified.

I am knitting a teddy bear. The last one was buried in the yard along with Ethan's ashes.

Beth I don't know anything about your faith or beliefs, but just know that my prayers are with you and your family. I firmly believe in God and that he has a reason for everything. I have a disabled daughter who will be 46 the 1st of march and she wasn't supposed to live beyond six, but God has touched everyones heart who has ever met her, so i believe that was his reason for her. Maybe this child will be somebody very special in this life and will do great things. So keep the faith and know we are all behind you and doing whatever we believe in. love and prayers. charlotte

Oh congratulations Beth. Every birth is different, and there is no reason to think that the tragic events of the past will be repeated. May your teddy bear be loved and hugged for many years.

Congratulations, Beth! And like Linda said - don't let your nerves get the better of you and weaken your resolve to give up smoking. You have an even greater reason now to not smoke! Best wishes to you and your expanding family, Beth! Your Sploofus family is here for you when you need us!

Thanks, all. I'll post the bear when s/he is done.

So far so good. Due date is end of September (eekkk, pregnant all summer!). Right now they live in Baton Rouge, which is only 1 1/2 hours from here but (boohoo) are talking about moving to Seattle soon. I'd sure hate that.

Just hope for a bouncing baby!!

I was touched by your message. What great news i will say a prayer. Just when i feel so alone and sorry for myself someone else has a story so much more tragic. While it wont replace the grief and loss for you. It hopefully will assuage your grief. Best wishes and congrats on news. Bobo
