C, {{{{hugs}}}} and comforting thoughts to you. I am worried also that my daughter will not be remembered when the number of grandchildren are counted, or on her birth and death anniversaries -- my husband comes from a very large family and although I know they loved Michelle, many of them never got to meet her and they may not be comfortable with remembering such sad things. I will be asking my own family to remember, at least my parents and brother, and I'm sure they will, even though they never met her at all [:(]

Perhaps you can gently remind your families before each anniversary date that the day holds such meaning for you -- maybe they are just forgetful and don't mean to hurt your feelings or neglect your child's memory. I hope that's the case.

You take care too and thanks for thinking of us.

Thinking of you. We had Ellie's 1st birthday in July, and I know how bad we felt on that day and in the time leading up to it. Hang in there, and take care of yourself too.

I just went through my son's first b-day last week too. It was a difficult day and a sad week. I don't think any of my in-laws her in town remembered his b-day either. If they did, they didn't mention it. Hang in there.

Sending you HUGE HUGS and as always prayers for comfort and strength.

My "Outlaws" live the closest to Katlyne's grave site and the only time they go to visit is when we are in town or ask them to go to check on things for us. I get very upset that they will not take time out of there lives to go and visit with Katlyne but I know deep down inside they are thinking about her...

Hope you days get better!

I am sorry you are having tough times. Anniversaries are very tough - tomorrow will be 14 month since I lost Will and I was crying last night that it was 14 months since we got the news we were losing him. Being around holidays seems to add a little extra pain - 4th of July weekend was very hard and I sobbed all through the fireworks. Take care of yourself - I'll be praying for you.

ps - an OB is different from a peri. you can get your ob to refer you to a peri and they can work on your care together.
