Re: 10 months today

The first Thanksgiving was very difficult for me as well. It was the first time in years that I did not gather with my huge extended family. I knew there was going to be a baby there about the same age as mine would have been and I couldn't take that, nevermind the crowd. My baby was due in Septembe...

Re: william joseph eckerson the 2nd

Amber, I'm so sorry that preeclampsia caused little William's death. It's a horrible disease that cost my little one her life too. I can only imagine your agony at having to deliver a baby you knew had passed. This is the worst pain imaginable. I also had Mag and I think pretty much everyone here ag...

Re: 9 years and seems like yesterday

I lit a virtual candle for Callie. It will be "lit" for 48 hrs. from now.

Re: 9 years and seems like yesterday

It's been two years for me, but like you I think of my baby every day and I don't think that will change- 2 yrs., 9 yrs., 20 yrs.... same as every parent who was lucky enough to keep their child earth side and in their lives; they think of their children daily, why shouldn't we? Like you, I want to ...

Re: Remembering Lei

The first anniversary was so difficult. Thank you for sharing the story of how Leilani got her name, a beatiful name you chose just for her. I love the message she sent you with the flower right at that moment and that you got to experience a moment of warmth and joy- it's all too easy to focus on t...

Re: lost my baby due to Pre-eclampsia, will it happen again?

I'm so sorry to hear about your loss. I lost my only baby to preeclampsia too. It's an absolutely devastating thing to happen. Many women go on to have successful pregnancies after having preeclampsia; unfortunately, some women do experience it again. If you do experience it again, that doesn't mean...

Re: starting to show cardiovascular disease problems

I haven't asked for the same procedure you did, but I will certainly check in with my doc about it. It's good you're being proactive about your own health. Other than saying yes to your statin request, did the doc say anything else- how worried was s/he? I can't remember your age but you seemed fair...

Re: I lost my beautiful daughter 9/3/12

I am so sorry about the loss of your beautiful daughter and that she and her sweet son won't get to know each other. It's tragic and unfair. This disease has touched far too many lives (it took my daughter too) and I'm sorry it touched yours in the worst possible way.

Re: Advice needed lost my son, wanting another baby

Sami, I'm so sorry about the loss of your son Ethan! I know that is the most devastating loss. I was 38 too when my first/only was born and died due to preeclampsia. Even though I have not been able to get pregnant since there are several "older" ladies here who have. Unfortunately, Preeclampsia can...
