    Scared of what's ahead

    I posted back in March about losing my daughter Olivia at 40 weeks and 2 days on January 24th. When I made that post I feel like I had hit my lowest point. I spent day after day alone in our apartment having screaming matches with God. Clearly, I was the only one screaming which would make me even more mad. My now fiancé was back working full time and I was contemplating returning to my job....

    Devastated -lost my perfect son at 40 weeks 4 days

    I just don't know how I am going to move on. My husband and I wanted a baby so very bad. We tried for 7 months before getting pregnant with our son. We were so beyond excited! I did everything I could to ensure I had a healthy pregnancy. I ate all organic, exercised, took my vitamins, got enough sleep etc. According to my midwives I had a perfect pregnancy and grew a perfect boy. He was so active...

    Lost

    Hello everyone, my name is Ana, my daughter Fiorella was a stillborn baby, at 40 weeks. Our entire pregnancy and labor were literally perfect, the only flaw was that she was in a frank breech postion. The doctor and the midwife both told us that it would be safe to have her be born normal, in a water birth.....but as we learned at the end, it was the thing that killed her. I have such a roller...

    Another baby

    Two months ago I lost my baby girl at 29 weeks. I became pregnant when I was only 17 and I wasn't planning on having kids that early. But it happened and I was so excited for her. I was decvestated when I found out they couldn't find her heart beat. I still can't get over it and have a hard time dealing with the loss everyday. But now more than ever I have noticed that I want a baby. I was so...

    My Baby Bri

    I was 35 weeks and a few days when I lost my baby girl a couple weeks ago.  When my husband and I found out we were pregnant, we were so excited. Our family and friends were excited.  She was our first baby.  I went to all my doctor visits, ate healthy meals, took my prenatal vitamins and did light walking a few times a week.  I enjoyed my pregnancy as I did not have any serious complexions....

    No one understands

    I lost my precious baby girl at 29 weeks and I just feel like no understands how I feel. I'm 17 and it's hard enough being that young and having a baby much and then to end up losing the baby just makes it's even harder. I had to overcome accepting I was pregnant only to lose the baby in the end. There was a cord problem and because she was moving so much it got twisted and cut her blood supply....

    New here. Lost. Our baby gone at 40+ weeks.

    Hello,My wife and I lost our daughter 4 weeks ago. She was stillborn. Trying to get by, we've read many posts online and thought that maybe it would help at least a little to share our story with others who have gone through this tragedy and hear what you have to say. I apologize if it's long but I feel compelled to get our story out to people who might at least understand what we are going...

    How can I move on?

    I have been reading these stories for weeks and now I feel like I need to share mine. On May 28th 2016 I took a pregnancy test and it was positive. My boyfriend and I weren't trying to get pregnant so this came as a total shock. I was terrified in the beginning but my boyfriend helped me realize that this baby is a blessing from God and we should embrace this. The next 9 months were pure bliss....

    I am a terrible person

    5
    Hey,I was going to post on FB but I know some people who probably will take offense...I find myself not wanting to be around any babies or pregnant women. I feel angry towards them or sometimes I just want to yell to them "your baby could die you know?!" I haven't done that thank goodness but I have had the urge for sure. Anyone else have these feelings or am I a monster?

    Is it ever going to get better

    I am so devestated. I want my Malcolm Isaiah Scollay to be here with me. If there is a God why would he be so cruel? He was so active and brought me so much joy while I carried him that I just knew he was going to be a happy healthy baby boy. I don't want to even wake up anymore and I don't want to eat, all I want is my baby alive and well in my arms. I want to hear him crying and see him smile...

    Coiled cord

    I lost my daughter at 24 weeks roughly 6 weeks ago. I didn't feel much movement and I went to the hospital.  They said there was a heart beat and sent me home. The following week at my check up we found out she had passed. I did and autopsy and they said it was a coiled cord. Has anyone experienced this. We want to try again but are so scared. Has anyone had a successful pregnancy after...

    The world has lost its color, life has no more meaning, my heart is broken in milion pieces! I don't know how I even breathe anymore. I've been walking through hell for the last 16 days, and it looks I'll  continue to do so for the rest of my life. My life, my meaningless life without my precious little boy! My baby, my love, my everything! I was so happy while carrying him for 41 weeks, my...

    TTC anxiety

    2
    I didn't know where to turn except here. I know you all know how it feels to lose a baby (unfortunately). My husband and I lost our daughter Mikayla 5 months ago and we have started to try to conceive again. I'm so excited but so anxious all at the same time. I just keep taking deep breaths and reminding myself it's all out of my control. I'm a planner and so I can't help myself by thinking about...
