For all expecting and or TTC Ladies....

Postby angelkat » Thu Aug 12, 2004 07:16 pm

I just wanted to give you all a hug. And to let you know it's possible to have a good outcome after a loss. When I was first pregnancy with Casey I would think,what life would be like with a new baby that wasn't my Katlyne. As she is my world, my sweet little baby girl. I would lay in bed at night and wonder what would Casey look it. Would he look like Katlyne and if he did how would I handle that?... How would I handle having another baby...

Well, my shinning star is right here with us, she is the light in Casey's eyes. Sure, I get tears in my eyes thinking I never got to share this bond with Katlyne but we had our own bond a special bond. One I will never forget. One that will be with me always in my heart and soul.

It's so normal to be scared about the whole pregnancy. Set simple milestones, enjoy them, celebrate them (don't celebrate to much or else you will have GD!) And as always, share your fears and tears with us as it really helps me to let it flow.

Never give up your hopes and dreams.....

Sending you all HUGE HUGS........

Your Casey shares a birthday with my Mary Rose. Seeing that brought tears to my eyes.

Thank you for the inspiration T. At times I get this "irrational" fear that I just cannot have another child. I'm in an "I'll believe it when I see it phase. Thank you.

Thank you, T!

I got the avatar for AmandaB's Maija... You need to check it out she's beautiful...

And I was thinking that one of the first improvements that we need to do to the website should be to add a page with photos of kids that were born after a loss from preeclampsia... Have Majia and Casey and all the other kids, and then add your guy Julie, and other ones as they arrive. For months after I got to the Forum, I thought there is no hope, I will have pree again and it will be bad, now I think that pree will come again, but things might still be well.
We can add your message on the top of the page... it's so beautiful, T!

We need to give this to women that come here after a loss... there's still hope.

Awww, T, there you go again: inspiring the heck out of us all! [:D]
I know I am not the only one who has gained such hope from your story (and your willingness to share it!) Thank you so much for this. All of your children must be so proud of you!
