Re : "So how many kids do you have?"

<t>My husband and I got this question for the first time about a month after we lost Cooper. Because we were at a happy event and I did not want to make that person uncomfortable, I answered that we had a almost three year old. Afterwards I just lost it because I felt like I had let Cooper down for ...

What not to say

<t>Last Friday I met with a client who saw my pictures of Cooper and commented on how small he was. I explained that he was 16 weeks early, only a pound and five ounces and lived for 22 hours. This person was obviously not from the US because she responded, "Oh I did not know your country still had ...

Re : Missing my Naomi after birth of little sister

<t>Since my loss is so recent, I can not say that I have experienced this with a newborn child after losing Cooper but I am 100% sure I will have the mixed emotions like this if we have another child. I look at Cooper's big brother Davis and think would Cooper look like him, would he act like him an...

How to deal with the fear?

<t>About a month after we lost Cooper, we had a consult with the MFM Specialist. There's a strong chance that we will not have <br/> I just spoke with my OB who had consulted with my MFM Specialist and they both agreed that six months (end of Nov) was a good wait time for me. Apparently I had a high...

Re : I Really Really Want A Baby To Take Home

<t>I never have gotten a "hard core answer" from my MFM or OB. They both asked well when you think you will want to start trying. I would answer April/May 2011 after a Disney trip that we are planning. And they will tell me that is fine. I could kick myself for not making them give me a min wait per...

Venting

<t>After Cooper's death, no one from my husband's dad's side of the family contacted us. No emails, no cards, nothing. Several of the family members our age (the cousins) are on facebook and there is no way they could not have known what was going on. Fast forward to last week, a uncle passed away. ...

Getting close to my original c-section date

<t>Our original delivery was set for August 31st. My due date was Sept 7th but I had a previous c-section and did not want to try a VBAC so we were scheduling surgery for a week before. My oldest son was two days past his due date, I had had a perfect pregnancy and we had to force him out with first...
