You're welcome Rachael....We're here for you mama. I can relate with watching friends/family members going through what you yourself should be too. I'm the admin on another board where myself and another mama both got pg w/in a week of eachother... well I lost mine and she's just about to hit 20 weeks and have her big u/s. I don't visit there that much anymore b/c it's too painful. That and my day care kiddo's mom is due 2 weeks before I was. I see her every day and she's really starting to show... feel her baby move... and just had her big u/s this week. It's not the same with living with it, but sucks all the same. Huge hugs mama. I'm so terribly sorry, but am holding on to that tiny glimmer of hope. I'm praying for that tiny bean to make it.

Thank you for posting this.
I'm 18 weeks pregnant now but I still feel like I should be delivering a baby in about 3.5 weeks.
Every time I see the October board my heart drops.

Re: What we wish you knew about pregnancy loss

Well said. I agree with it all. When my mom lost my brother when she was pregnant, people said and did the same things as the "do not" list. Their biggest thing was, well at least you have your other kids....and at least you lost him early before you really got to know him. Those were so hurtful for her because she loved the baby growing inside her. When I lost my last baby very early, my husband....my own husband said...at least it was early. He was just as insensitive as the rest. Sometimes, even the people we love so dearly can be just as insensitive as the rest.
