My daughter Madelyn was born sleeping at 23 weeks. I wasn't feeling her move around very much and I decided to let the doctor know. He told me he thought that she would be fine and that she's probably just resting, etc. We did an ultrasound and sure enough, there wasn't a heartbeat. I had a horrible feeling when I got onto the table but I told myself that she would be okay. She was born on September 16th, 2009 at 7:12 pm, weighing 1 lb, 12 inches long. We still don't have any answers as to what happened. We did do an autopsy and that portion has come back normal. She has nothing wrong genetically. So they are leaning towards a Placenta or Cord issue. When I go to my doctors appt. I hope to hear SOMETHING. Im assuming they probably won't know anything still. We just had her service Saturday..and it was beautiful. I know that I did everything I could for her, to make it nice. We bought a bigger box to put her cremations in, and decorated the box. She has the outfit her daddy bought her when we found out we were having a girl. We both wrote letters to her and put them in. And a teddy bear is holding her box. I still can't believe that it's happened and I have a feeling that it's going to hit me harder later. But Im holding up as best as I can. Im on the webmd boards also, but it's been really slow. I was told about this website and how great you ladies are..so I decided to see for myself! I look forward to getting to know you all. This seems like a great, supportive board so far. And we all need that right now...

I miss traveling with my husband. Has anyone found a specific site regarding cruising for widow/widowers or any sightseeing trips. Not interested in being with couples and kids,,,I realize a cruise ship will have a portion size of families and couples, but perhaps they also put together a part of the cruise ship for groups of widows/widowers????
