Hubs does not understand it and we got into a little fight today but then he explained that I'm not sharing my an joys thoughts so he really doesn't know about it. I need to do better about that.
Shannon - I am soooo happy for you!!! I need to catch up on reading, but we found out on our baby Abby's birthday that we are expecting our second rainbow in March. . We lost Abigail to a cord accident on June 23, '11. My first rainbow baby will be 10 months tomorrow, oh how time flies! I am nervous but trying to place it in Gods hands. Can't wait to be farther along so I can bust out my Doppler again . Sending hugs and prayers to all of the ladies here!

I wrote her a letter this week and that felt good. I was surprised how hard it would be and how the grief would feel so.... physical again. But I'm glad I did it. Now I need to go through her box before we leave. I've been wanting to do that for a while and since we'll be gone I want to do it before we leave.

I don't think I'm really attaching myself to this new pregnancy. I'll be 16 weeks next week and all I can think about is, "wait for the ultrasound". I don't have any reason to believe that anything's wrong but it's still so hard.

Just missing my baby today.
Sound like you are dealing with things as best as you can. I think celebrating Ella's birthday at an amusement park is a wonderful idea. As for not attaching to the pregnancy, I think that is a totally normal way of coping with things when you've had a loss. You are trying to protect your heart. Just take it one day at a time. Many of us couldn't really believe things were gonna turn out ok until baby was born safe and sound. So take all the time you need

Congrats Lynn! We got our BFP on Ella's 9 month birthday. I reminded Hubs that it had been 9 months. he got quiet for a minute and then I said.. and in 9 more we'll have another blessing Lord willing.

It IS so nerve wracking. I am working hard on trusting God. I know that I won't feel totally at ease till he/she's here. It's Ella's 1st birthday in 5 days so this has been a hard week.

Praying for you and your little one!
