Hi everyone, I just recently found this site...have no idea if I'm posting in the right places but figure I'd start a post to introduce myself and you all can tell me where to go. Nicely, of course. [:)]

Briefly...

I had two uneventfully boring pregnancies resulting in my daughter (8) and son (5). I was flying through my third pregnancy with my second daughter, until the 24th week. Long story short, I had severe, sudden HELLP with my platelets dropping below 60,000, and blood pressure being controlled (barely) at 210/120. I was ambulanced to a level 2 hospital where they induced me. Sadly, my tiny baby girl Angelica Rose, didn't survive the labor. She was stillborn in the early morning of July 15th. It's been almost 3 years, and I'm learning how to deal with the grief, but I, my husband, and my kids miss her every day. Our Baby Rose. 10 months ago I gave birth to our third daughter, Dakota Rose. No signs of HELLP or pre-e at all. It is bittersweet to celebrate each day with her while acknowleging all the things I will never get to do with her sister.

So, that's me in a nutshell. We just moved from Vegas to Boulder County and we're so happy to be here. I miss my supportive friends back in Vegas, though! Thanks for letting me share my story, I look forward to hearing all of yours.
