    Feeling Guilty

    0
    I lost my baby girl almost two months ago on December 18th, 2016.  I was 33 weeks and 6 days pregnant. I'm having the hardest time accepting that my baby is gone and I constantly blame myself.  I believe that if my fiancé and I had gotten to the hospital sooner my baby would be here right now with us. I cry every day. My fiancé has been very supportive but me being sad all the time is taking...

    Hi everyone,I came to this group because I'm having a very hard time dealing with my baby's death. I delivered my baby, Levi on 11-4-16. I was 34 weeks pregnant. I had 2 miscarriages before this pregnancy so we were so excited when we made it past the 13 week mark. Everything went surprisingly well this whole pregnancy. I was feeling great and everything was looking good on my ultrasounds. There...

    I lost my baby girl at 40weeks. At my 40 weeks appointment she was fine. Three days later I called the OB because I hadn't felt her move all day. They had me come in and there was no heartbeat. I was taken to the hospital and induced. After giving birth they found the cord wrapped around her neck very tight. This is what killed my baby.I feel it's all my falt she is dead. I think about it almost...

    Hi Everyone,I am new here. This past sunday marked my babie's first Angelversary. I chose not to TTC for an entire year as my act of mourning in honor of my beautiful baby born sleeping in 2015. It has been the worst year of my life and I miss him deeply each and every day but I am so glad I held off to mourn and grive the loss of my son. We lost him at 31 weeks, he was perfectly formed and it...

    Taken too soon

    I just lost my baby girl last week. It all started when I went to the hospital and stayed there for a week when I was 15 weeks pregnant, with an infection. Was also informed that I had complete placenta previa and my baby was breached. Left the hospital with antibiotics and they told me my amniotic fluid was low. Started seeing a maternal fetal specialist, infection specialist and my gyno once...

    Lost

    Hey everyone! I've been going back and forth a million times in my head, on whether or not I should join a group. I'm beyond hopeful that this will provide some type of light, in what seems like a never ending dark nightmare. I have always wanted children. I love them to death. I really wanted a girl, but said whatever I was blessed with, then I'm beyond fine. Ladies, I'm going to be a little...

    Holiday sadness

    It's been 3 1/2 months since I lost my little girl at 40 weeks 5 days.  Today is Thanksgiving and I know I have many things to be thankful for but all I feel is an overwhelming sadness.  Last Thanksgiving I had a positive pregnancy test.  This year there is an empty nursery and it is so quiet.  My baby should be here with me.  I should be taking her to my family's house today.  She would...

    Feeling lost/hopeless

    I am new to this group but I have been reading for a while as I lost my son back in Jan 2013 and my daughter in Nov 2014. These pages helped me then but I am just feeling very hopeless. This time of the year is always difficult for me, I never really have dealt with everything as I was also told I would probably never have kids again. Today is my birthday and I should be spending it with a 2...

    2 Year Angelversary

    We are almost at two years since losing Emma. A lot has happened in the two years. Most importat of which is that her little sister, our rainbow baby, was born in December last year. I get asked a lot whether I'll tell Belle about her sister. I'm always surprised by this question. Why would I not tell her? I talk about Emma all the time, so it's not like I'll sit Belle down one day and tell her...

    But instead I delivered my son Saul in August at 20 weeks. This is my 3rd son born sleeping and I'm just tired. The doctors have no answers and my husband has no idea how to support me.

    How many kids do you have?

    I was just wondering what you do when someone asks you if you have kids or how many? I want to include my baby but I also don't want to explain. I just feel like I'm being a bad mom by not including my baby.
