    Anxiety with going back to work

    2
    I am going back to work next Friday after being off for 11 weeks. It really went by fast and I am not sure if I am ready or if I will ever be. Our son was born still April 21st at 37 weeks due to a knot in his umbilical cord. We miss him everyday! I am wondering if some of you mom's have gone back to work yet and how you dealt with the anxiety? I work at the hospital where we delivered and a...

    My little Angel

    I lost my babygirl Kairi Jacqueline Hichez six days ago. She was born silent on June 20th 2017, 10:36 PM. 7 pounds and 18 inches long. There are no words to express how hard this has hit me, and how badly I am grieving her loss. My only consolation is believing that she is swaddled in the warmth and comfort of God's arms; although I wish she would be laying in mine. My husband says we could've...

    Hi everyone,Thank you for sharing on this forum.  I joined a few weeks ago, a few days after delivering our angel, Isaac, but I haven't felt ready to post yet because it's still so hard to accept that this has happened.  Reading your stories and comments and support, though, has been really reassuring so I want to say thank you even though I don't know any of you personally.  Our beautiful...

    Missing my Angel- new here

    So, as usual, I can't sleep. I am from the Chicago area. I am a teacher. I am 29 yrs old. And I have 2 angels in heaven. I gave birth to my sweet baby boy on February 15th, 2011. It was the single worst day of my entire life. I gave birth and have no baby to hold in my arms now. Previous ultrasounds showed a perfectly healthy baby, and a perfect pregnancy. I went in for a "quick" gender check....

    My husband and I had been trying to conceive our first child for three and a half years. We finally tried fertility treatments and got pregnant fairly quickly. The pregnancy was stressful because I have a high risk for miscarriage. Once we made it past 20 weeks that stress went down quite a bit. I was 39 weeks pregnant, had a doctor's appointment where the heart beat sounded great. Two days later...
