Pregnant after a Loss

Due date on the day I gave birth to my still-born son

We were planning on scattering our son's ashes on his year "birth"day but now hopefully we'll have a newborn on that day.

Is it unusual for these days to coincide? I feel like because it's all about cycles that it's only natural they line up. At the same time I find it a HUGE blessing and comfort!

Re: Due date on the day I gave birth to my still-born son

  • We discovered our MMC on March 30th last year, and had a D&C on April 3rd.  I am now due with our rainbow on March 31st (also my birthday :-) ) Seems like it is just how the stars line up.
    BFP 2/11/15 (EDD 10/13/15). MMC 3/30/15 D&C 4/3/15 "We will always love you"
    DD1 - BFP 7/23/15 (EDD 3/31/16).  "We believe in you rainbow" DOB 4/2/16
    DD2 - BFP 2/9/18 (EDD 10/19/18).  "Grow baby grow!" DOB 10/24/18
    BFP 11/16/20 (EDD 7/31/21).  "Round 3 FIGHT!"
  • I don't believe things like this are an "accident" (or coincidental). Just my personal belief though. Huge congrats to you!

  • Baby's due one day after my sweet angel was born .. Hopefully for her first birthday she will get a healthy baby brother <3 
  • My baby is due 9 months after my first one would have been due. Exactly one pregnancy length later. I found that a bit strange. I'm so terribly sorry for your loss, by the way. I hope the new baby will help give you so much joy on a date that would otherwise be so difficult.
