I'm so sorry I missed your post yesterday. I hope you were able to find some peaceful moments.
Reading that your parents gave you the tulip bulbs to plant in her honour brought tears to my eyes -- how wonderfully thoughtful.

Big hugs and prayers to you.

I wanted to thank everyone for your support. It hasn't been the easiest of days, but I've gotten through it. Of course, getting through it involved bursting into tears at lunch when I found out Subway temporarily couldn't take debit cards (I didn't have any cash), petulantly buying Ben & Jerry's for lunch because nothing else sounded good, and then sobbing in the break room while I ate my chocolate fudge brownie. But later hubby and I went to dinner with my parents, and they gave me tulip bulbs to plant in her honor, and then we came home, lit a candle for Maggie, and watched her ultrasound video. And my heart didn't break like I thought it would--I smiled at the reminder that I had carried such a lively little girl inside me.

I think I just might make it, ladies.

Jenn, I'm coming in on this a little late but I just wanted to send you some hugs and comfort on Maggie's birthday. When I lit my candle for Michelle tonight, I thought of all the other precious babies who have been lost. How I wish we had them to hold instead of just our memories.

Oh Jenn....I'm so sad right along with you. I'm so sorry, as I am for all of us, that we have to feel the pain we endure. Just know that you are in my thoughts and prayers. I pray that you find a way to find peace and comfort. What an honor that your precious Maggie was born on the National Day of Remembrance. You have many, many prayers heading your way today.

Best of luck to you in your "adventure" ttc. Your little Maggie will send a beautiful little one your way. I just know it!

Sending you lots of hugs![;)]

Oh sweetie... I am so sorry you have to have this pain. It is the hardest thing to endure. Our children aren't supposed to die before us. I wish I could take away your pain. If I could - I would in a second. Please know that I am thinking of you and honoring your beautiful, perfect babygirl today.

Yesterday, I gave in my notice for my November 12th absence
from school (work). I can't imagine getting through this day
while at work.

I know what you mean about the what if's. We will always think
of those. Thinking of you today and Maggie. I hope you do
something good for yourself today.
