Intro (LifeofCat) — The Bump
Parenting after a Loss

Intro (LifeofCat)

Hi everyone! I recognise several names here, and was active on TTCAL and PgAL, but thought it would be a good idea to introduce myself before diving in... my rainbow Jane was born on July 28th, a bit earlier than anticipated at 34 weeks, but she's home and both her and I are doing well. 

My loss history is in my signature, but she was my third pregnancy, having had an early miscarriage in Jan 2013 as well as losing my first daughter Marianne at almost 23 weeks last summer. I also lost my mother this February to cancer. Needless to say, it has been a rough year, but DH and I are so happy to finally meet Jane; we're head over heels in love :)

Other tidbits about me; I'm a reference librarian, hoping to soon become a children's librarian, I'm a Canadian from the East Coast, I enjoy reading, watching movies, travelling and drinking craft beers (though it's been a long while *sigh*), and I used to play roller derby for several years (and may go back to it eventually...)

I look forward to meeting all of you!
~All are welcome~
