Sad Valentine's Day

After 8years, I still struggle with Valentine’s Day. See the posts I made below in 2010 and 2006. My husband and I tried to schedule a romantic dinner for this V-day, but I just feel sick to my stomach trying to plan it. Instead, I think my husband and I will take a care package over to the NICU o...

Re : lovenox??

<t>I used Heparin (another blood thinner) during my second pregnancy. My doctor preferred Heparin because it has been around longer than Lovenox. You actually get used to injecting yourself although it is never pleasant. I did not get Preeclampsia during the second pregnancy and my second son was bo...

Sad Valentine's Day

<t>I am always sad as we approach Valentine's Day. Six years ago my husband did something very uncharacteristic for him. He booked a suprise stay at a 5 star hotel for us for Feb 13th to celebrate Valentine's Day. He wanted to cheer me up. Instead of going to the hotel, we cancelled so we could take...

Re : 2 months

<t>Samantha - I am so sorry for your loss. I lost my first son 5 years ago. Grief comes and goes in waves. It can get better for a while and them hit you hard unexpectedly. I found my 2nd month after losing Seth particularly challenging. I also got hit hard about the year anniversary of his death. F...

Re : Lost my baby at 27 weeks

<t>Sanjay, My heart goes out to you. I am so sorry for your loss. I lost my first son to preeclampsia and HELLP. The loss of a baby can divide many couples, but my husband and I clung to each other and are an even stronger couple 5 years later. We did have a healthy second child without getting pree...

Re : Is this guilt or would this be dishonorable?

<t>Dara,<br/> I lost my first son in the beginning of 2004. I was not due with my second until Jan of 2005. I had my second son a month premature two days before the end of 2004. It seemed odd to have one son die and another born in the same year. I took it as a blessing from God to give me somethin...

Re : Grief counseling

<t>Jen,<br/> Good for you for being proactive. I hope the counselling helps. My participation in a group for grieving parents really helped me. A pregnancy after a loss is very tough and stressful. I know it was for me. I was spared the stress of TTC as I got pregnant as soon as I decided to try. I ...
