I'm sorry you're so blue. We buried our son on his due date. It was tough, for other reasons. But it's still a date we will never forget. Adding more insult to injury, I got a call from the hospital regarding his hospital bill...on what would have been his first birthday. I don't know why they waited so long to bill, or why they called on his birthday. They sure do have poor timing when they want their money.

Hugs all around ladies.

I am so sorry. I too know this feeling. Benjmain was still alive when his due date came. I kept thinking that maybe when his due date came,he would make this miraculous turn around,he would suddenly breathe on his own,we would get to take him home.....but we didn't. I am thinking of you and beautiful Gracie at this time. You are not alone. xo

I am so sorry for what you are going through. I wish that none of us had to live in a world where the days that were supposed to be the happiest of our lives turned into days that are dreaded and so incredibly sad. Having gone through my due date relatively recently, my advice is to try to find some time to spend with your husband and comfort each other as best as you can....with as many pop tarts as you want!

P.S. I received Aiden's NICU bill in the mail not too long ago, it came to $10,000 ($1,000 per day)...seems completely unfair if you ask me!

Millie's due date was really difficult for me too. It's a window into a life that you and she could have had, had she been born now instead of then. I think you should go ahead and lay in bed eating pop tarts.

It's funny because hubs and I were talking about this day a few weeks ago. We both agreed that March 15 will always be her birthday and that today will just be another day. After all, we don't know if she was actually going to be born on this day.

Of course now that it's here, I'm blue. :( It's not the day itself that makes me blue, I think it's more that she should be here, either in my belly or in my arms. I kinda want to just lie in bed and medicate myself with Pop-Tarts and I don't even like Pop-Tarts.

To add to the misery, her hospital bill arrived last week... $2000 in NICU charges. I would gladly pay 10 times that if it meant she were still here. So now I've got a desk full of bills, baby samples, and bp medication. But no baby. I wish I could fast forward through life like I can commercials.
