Miscarriage/Pregnancy Loss

Stillbirth/Late Loss/Infant Loss Check-in

I am going to try and get this post back on Wednesday's.  Hopefully that works for everyone.

This is a weekly check-in for women who have experiences a Stillbirth/Late Loss/ or Infant Loss. Hopefully this will be a chance for us to connect and provide additional support on our losses with other women who understand. Anyone who has experienced this type of loss is welcome to join no matter if they are taking a break, TTC, currently PG, or have delivered a healthy baby. We sadly accept new members every week:(

Re: Stillbirth/Late Loss/Infant Loss Check-in

  • 1. No up-dates for me.  Just taking everything day by day and still trying to lose weight so we can try again sooner than later.

    2. We took an "It's a boy" ballon to the cemetery on Wyatt's due date.  I also made myself a rememberence bracelet last weekend.  It has Wyatt's name and birthstone with a mixture on DH's and my birthstones.  I also found out that our birthstone colors stand for Love and Peace and Wyatt's stands for goodness.  I thought that was very interesting. 

    3.  I decided to be an architect in 6th grade.  I then went to school for it and I am currently working as an architect (although I have not taken the test yet so I am still unlicensed.  Something I should really be working on.)  I guess I don't know want else I would do if I wasn't doing this.  Although if money was no object I would love to be a SAH mom someday.  But that will probably not happen.

    4. Thank you vml14 for your question suggestions.  QOTD suggests are greatly appreciated so please keep them coming.

  • 1.  No real updates.  We are TTC, and I got a BFN on the first cycle.  Onto cycle #2....  And, we are quickly approaching my due date, which was Oct. 7.  I am taking the day off work to have a little me time.

    2.  We have 2 trees planted in our yard... one is a pink dogwood that our familes had planted for us.  The other is a japanese maple from some friends.  I love going outside and sitting on my deck and looking at them.  Also, my DH gave me a necklace with Valerie's birthstones in it.  I've been wearing it everyday.

    3.  I've always wanted to be a SAHM... hopefully someday I'll be able to do that for a while.  Besides that, I'd love to be a singer in a rock band, but I think you need to be able to sing to do that!! :)

    4.  I'll think of some and post later...

  • Wow, I am losing it...  We also planted a tree in our yard with a stone below it from our group of friends that says "You will never be forgotten, we pledge to you this day, a hallowed place within our hearts, is where you'll always stay.  My DH also got Wyatt's hand prints tatooed on his chest.

  • 1. Not much new, just waiting until next week for my first MFM appointment.

    2. For Abby's 1st birthday, we released butterflies. I also have a necklace that is engraved with her name, date of birth and footprints.

  • 1. Today is 6 months since we lost our Doodles. It's a tough day, and I have a lot going on so I can't just wallow liked I'd prefer. We also had our baseline ultrasound for IVF#2 this morning (if everything is ok, today is the day I'll start my meds).

    2. So many things - we have a scrapbook, I made an online video, we have rings that we wear with our wedding bands with two aquamarine (March birthstone) stones and an inscription, we had a portrait made that I have copies of in my office and at home...I try to think of them as often as possible.

    3. Wedding/event planner.

    4. No, sorry. I'm lame.

    *** It's funny because I'm fat ***
  • 1. I saw the hematologist on Friday. He doesn't think I will have an issue with MTHFR (I have homozygous chromosome) He thinks it was just the placental abruption/pre-e. But we will know for sure after next week.

    2. So far, we have a photo up in the house alongside the urn. I have asked for a charm bracelet and a charm for Christmas. We are moving so we have not planted anything yet but once we get a permanent location I want to plant a tree in his memory.

    3. Newspaper reporter - I did this already but had to quit due to financial issues.

    4. pg related - Have you started ttc again/or how long until you started ttc
    non-pg related - What is your favorite vacation spot?
    If we traveled to your city, where would you recommend eating or visiting?
    (These may have already been asked, not sure)
  • 1. Please feel free to give a general update  I can't remember if I have posted this here or not, but they found a cyst, so I have to be on b/c for the next 6 months to a year, so life is pretty well on hold.

    2. Pg related QOTD: What types of things have you done to remember your angel? (Thanks vml14)  We planted a tree, I also have a plaque that sets in the living room and I have  bracelet and necklace.

    3. Non-pg related QOTD: What is your dream job? (Thanks vml14)  I am not sure, there are lots of things I would love to do.  I love fundraising and special event coordination, I would also love to own a bakery some day.

    4. Any suggestions for either QOTD?
