    Still struggling

    4
    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...

    A Little Bit of Anger

    Its been almost 2 months since my baby girl Scarlett was born sleeping. I'm still angry but I'm trying to just keep moving forward. I think the thing I'm most angry about these days is going to seem so petty to people but here goes. I'm angry because my boyfriend....the father of my baby has never seen her. He has not once looked at any pictures that were taken of her. He never held her. He...

    Last week, at 39+4, I went to the doc and they coudn't find a heartbeat. I was send to L&D and long story short, had to be induced and give birth to my dead baby. It was easily the worst day of my life. Doc found no apparent reason and I had a next to perfect pregnancy. He said some things medicine just cannot explain. I ate right, did not drink or smoke, exercised, was within the right weight...

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...

    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 think about it almost...

This year as my Carson's 5th angelvesary arrives, I decided I wanted to give something back to the community that helped me through the first rough months after losing my son. I wrote and published Carson's story a year after we lost him due to...

    Late stage Placental Insufficiency

    I was wondering if any of you have dealt with a diagnosis of late stage placental insufficiency regarding your sweet angel babies (or even placental insufficiency for that matter). I have gotten two separate opinions from my daughter's autopsy and both agree that my placenta stopped slowly providing enough oxygen/nutrients at approximately two weeks before her delivery date (she was born sleeping...

    It has been a little over 3 weeks since my husband and I gave birth to our daughter who was born asleep on February 15th,2017. Our due date was Valentine's Day. We went to our doctor on our due date after what was a perfect pregnancy. We were so excited that day to go to the doctor to find out when we could get her out and finally meet her. The night before on the 13th she was moving like crazy....
