During my second pregnancy, my daughter was at the 50th percentile at 20 weeks and went down, down, down with each subsequent ultrasound. She ended up around the 10th percentile shortly before she was born at 36 weeks due to pre-term labor. My peri was not concerned either, but of course I was. My d...

Yes! I found that some people were so insensitive. Some people really just don't get it. I think all of us who have lost a baby have run into those people who seem to think that having another one will make everything OK. After our son died, I had to make the decision to distance myself from some pe...
Thank you for re-sharing your memorial. We let our baby boy go on February 13, too. That was the most difficult decision of our lives, but we wanted him to pass peacefully and in the loving arms of his parents. I can't imagine ever celebrating Valentine's Day again.

When we transitioned off the bottle, we would try breastfeeding first at each feeding and then supplement with the bottle until she got th...
I had a similar experience after my daughter was born and I even posted a similar topic: https://www.preeclampsia.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=14&t=38985 I received lots of replies from people who felt the same way. I was so happy to have her, but at the same time it seemed to hit me all over again tha...
It is not wrong of you to want to put up pictures of your daughter, and it is certainly not morbid. Nobody who has not suffered through a loss can even begin to understand what you have gone through, and it seems that your husband doesn't understand at all. If he is open to it, he should read a book...
I wish I could same something to help you feel better. It's been 1 year and 8 months since we lost our precious little boy. I still have some hard days but I think I finally made it to a place where I have accepted that this horrible thing happened in my life and I know that I am able to deal with i...
