14th may 2007 and after dropping my kids off at school i was informed that my friend had just found out she had lost her baby at 29 weeks. I was devestated for her and as i was also pregnant at 38 weeks i was also very nervous. so i had check up with midwife. Good Strong heart beat she said which put my mind at ease. we had just put his cot up and all his clothes were in the warbrobe. i was ready for his arrival. 16th may and my heaven turned to hell. i had not felt him move all morning. this was very unusual. at the hospital they done two scans and the verdict was in. my baby boy had died and no one could tell me why.I went in the next day and they brooke my waters and i gave birth to him at 10.20pm on the 17th may. I felt content as i held him but empty. This would be the last time i look at his beautiful face. My huband and family were distraught and i could not help them but together through time we have helped each other and we are stronger than ever now. We are now trying for another baby and moving on but we will never forget our baby boy.My heart goes out to anyone who has lost a child and to the dads and the rest of the family who are also going through this pain. The pain will get easier to cope with although it may not feel like it. Let yourself grieve and life will go on.

I miss traveling with my husband. Has anyone found a specific site regarding cruising for widow/widowers or any sightseeing trips.
