Welcome you found us...

I am starting this blog for women that have meet through the 2nd and 3rd trimester loss thread on the Miscarriage, stillbirth and infant loss boards at babycenter.com

we have lost our babies to stillbirth, pre-term labor and some of us had premie babies that fought hard to stay alive but this does not mean that if you had a loss of some other kind you are not welcome. This a place where we can share more about our children, about our losses and help each other cope.

when you find out your child has died, or your OB tells you that they can no longer find the baby's heartbeat your world comes crashing down.

I hope we can all find some support here.

Just found you on Mel's list! I'm glad you are doing this. Thank you.

I don't know if Rosemary will check this again but, I want to say, I am sorry for your loss, Rosemary. This is a tough journey but we are all here!

Rosemary not sure if you'll be back here again but I'm so sorry. Your due date is coming up again... and I am thinking of you and your little angel.

Take care please!

This is a good idea for a blog... thank you. Our daughter died "in utero" at 21 weeks gestation and we have been struggling with infertility on top of the grief of losing her. The online community has been the best when it comes to support, family has been disappointing in a lot of ways.

Great support here. Found you via MK's comments on different blogs that are so full of compassion I clicked over. We lost our fifth child during my labour (likely cord compression) and he was stillborn. Beautiful, healthy, but still. Devastating for us and his older siblings of course.

I lost 3 babies all at the end of the 2nd trimester ... it was over a 3 year time period. While I was going through I had no idea how I would survive ... especially after that third loss. But somehow, some way ... it's 5 years later and here I sit. Now it's my turn to reach out to you ...if anyone needs encouragment, an ear, or advice, drop me a line. Blessings!

Hello! I know you don't know me, but we've got something in common. I got your blog address off the Stirrup Queen's blogroll and was wondering if you wouldn't mind helping me help a couple who is trying to add a little one to their family. We're holding a silent auction for them this weekend (Friday and Saturday) on goteamwitt.blogspot.com and need help getting the word out! We would love it if you would spread the word via social media or here on your blog. Additionally, we are always looking for more donations to auction off, so if you or someone you know might be interested in making a donation, all the information is under the donate tab. If you have any questions or would be willing to post a pre-written blog post about the auction and the sponsored couple, please contact Kristin at goteamwitt@gmail.com Thanks in advance for taking the time to consider this!
