    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...

    Stillbirth at 37+3

    Two weeks ago from today , I had just felt my daughter move moments before going into labor. I was rushed to the hospital because the contractions were so strong and coming close together, to hear doctors say they couldn't find a heartbeat.I had to have an emergency c-section. To see her lifeless body I was(and still am) devastated. I don't understand what happened. I did everything I was suppose...

    I just wanted to wish all the mothers out there a happy Mother's Day. I know this is one of the hardest days seeing everyone happy with their children. We may not have children with us who should be, but you are still a mother and you always will be! As hard as it may be try to do something fun today, even if it's just you you're kids will always be with you!

    Its almost her birthday...I'm screaming on the inside. I would give anything to see her, hold her, tell her mommy loves you... Why?One of my friends just gave birth to a baby girl...it pissed me off. My sis in law asked me to go to my friends baby's shower a few weeks back...WTF. Last night she just tried to explain my friends labor process to me when I cut her off saying that I don't want to...

    Hanging In There

    2
    Today makes it 3 months since Scarlett was born sleeping. Everyone keeps telling me to do things in my own time and that time heals everything. For the most part, I'm hanging in there. But then I see people with their little ones and it's like a kick straight to my heart. Almost an actual physical pain. I decided to open this box that the hospital had sent home with me when I was allowed to go...

    Today marks what would have been my daughter's 2nd birthday. My daughter, Gemma Rose, was born still on 11/9/12. I was 39 weeks and I lost her because of a cord accident. This is and always will be the hardest day of the year. Life has forced me to keep moving forward without her but on this day, I allow myself to rip off the scabs and let the pain out. Each anniversary of her death feels...

    I posted several weeks back but I lost our daughter on February 15th at 40 weeks pregnant. I've now gone back to work and I just struggle. Everyday is a reminder because I shouldn't be at work I should be home with my daughter. I find myself getting more angry over the situation because it just isn't fair that this happened. It's hard to hear my friends at work talk about their kids and to see...
