Re : Does it hurt you when you see other babies?

<t>All of you echo how I feel whenever I see a baby. Jealous thoughts, a "hunger", all go through my mind. Sometimes, I even think about how I'll never get to do this or that with my daughter. I have been told NOT to become pregnant again, and my poor husband, after almost losing me twice doesn't wa...

Re : a rough week

<t>Thanks to all of you. You know, when I have times like this, it just keeps going on. I'm a teacher, and my students gave a presentation today. One of the groups had a character named Callie, and it was purely coincidental (they don't know her name), but it almost did me in. I swear, most times, I...

a rough week

<t>Just having a difficult week here. It's been 5 months since I lost Callie, but this week it felt like it was just yesterday. We got together with some friends from out of town a few days ago. The last time they saw me (this past summer) I was newly pregnant and excited. Our friend was also pregna...

Re : Stupid things people say! What are they thinking?

<t> Unfortunately, some of the worst comments came from my MOTHER. I was so sick after I was induced and delivered my daughter due to PE and HELLP (stillborn at 23 1/2 weeks) that my mom stayed the night with me in the hospital. However, she does that nervous talking thing, where she says everything...

Re : My Birthday was horrible.

<r>Reading your post was like looking into my own heart. I have had EVERY feeling you have had during the past four months. I found that it did help to come to the forum just to know I wasn't alone, or that my feelings were selfish. <br/> <br/> I too feel awful when I see a pregant woman or a baby. ...

Re : I was fine, but...

<t>Michal,<br/> <br/> You're right, I do need to talk to someone. <br/> <br/> My mother is no help...she has chronic foot-in-mouth syndrome. She called Wednesday and said, "So this was when the baby was supposed to be born, huh?" and she left it at that. [:(]<br/> <br/> I tried talking to my husband...

Re : I was fine, but...

<t>Thanks to all of you for your kind words. It does help to know that these feelings are normal. <br/> <br/> I will talk with my husband. However, as I'm sure all of you feel, it is somewhat different for us (women). I remember feeling my daughter's kicks. I also remember being in the hospital duri...

I was fine, but...

<t>I lost my daughter Callie in November. She was 23 weeks old, and stillborn. I was in a Catholic hospital, and my doctor wanted to deliver me because I had severe PE and HELLP, and my organs were beginning to fail. However, the head nun would not allow it, and they wanted to "wait it out" until I ...

Re : Thank You

<r>Gloria,<br/> <br/> I lost my daughter Callie in November to PE and severe HELLP syndrome. I too am a teacher, and took time off from work. I returned right after Christmas, and yes, it was a very difficult thing to do. I teach high school, and I was so afraid that these kids would confront me, or...

Re : Will this ever get easier?

<t>Catherine,<br/> <br/> The vision loss is only in one eye. I guess it's not really loss so much as it is a "blurry/fuzzy" spot. I only notice it when I look from side to side, not really straight ahead, but I'm sure it will make driving a challenge. My cardiologist said to visit the eye doctor, so...
