Welcome you found us...

I am starting this blog for women that have had full term losses that have meet through the full term loss board i created at babycenter.com

this does not mean that if you had a stillbirth of another kind, or a loss of some other kind you are not welcome, but this a place where we can share more about our children.

we have all lost a child on or about the time of our due dates.

it is a sad fact that sometime you are in the throws of labor when you find out your child has died, or you have just had a Non stress test and found out that your baby has slipped silently away.

I hope we can all find some support here.

Christine,
Thank you for starting this blog. I'd love to be a contributor, not sure how good I'll be at it as I'm still at the uncontrolable crying stage, but maybe people will need to see what I'm going through to see they are not alone and how you're helping me, hopefully I can do the same for someone.
Hope you are doing well - i feel like I'll I'm doing at this stage is taking from you and not giving anything back - so sorry. Let me know what I can do to help.

Hello. This is a great blog.
I have had an infant loss myself.
I started this website and web forum for people with a loss. I don't know if it will be of any use to the people who visit your blog. But it may be. The forum is small right now but those of us who run it left other forums to make a more sensitive one. It is http://alovingjourney.freeforums.org/

My website is www.alovingjourney.org but it is under construction right now. I am updating it to be better looking, lol. It has a more practical approach (vs. more professional websites) on how to survive pregnancy and infant loss.

If you think these resources may be useful to those who contact you feel free to pass it along. I would be happy to do the same for you blog as I see it is very beautiful.

Hi. I am so gratful to Zachary's mom for commenting on my blog. It led me here to find your gorgeous creation.

I would love to be a contributor.

Emma Grace was delivered at 40 weeks 2 days. She died on her due date. She has been gone for 8 years. I am ready to reach out to others, share my story and inspire hope.

Thanks for this forum!

Hello. I've just now come across your blog. What a wonderful idea and a great resource. I lost my sweet baby Shiloh on Oct 28, 2008 at 39 weeks 5 days due to an umbilical cord accident. I miss her so much. I've created a website for her if anyone would like to visit it (http://thenewsimons.com). I included your post regarding the stillbirth symposium as I know quite a few women who keep up with our "Whispers to our Angel" blog on her website, and I've been searching for a way to make stillbirth more recognized/preventable.

I would also love to be a contributor here if possible. You can find my email address through Shiloh's website. Thanks again for this blog!

I lost my son (one of twins) at 39 weeks. I had no idea he was gone until I went to be induced that day- by his coloring, I was told he died that day- (of a cord accident)- He would be 6 this September- I had a blog for my family and found posts of Andrew kept popping up in my mind and so I started a new blog about my journey- if you're interested my blog is www.momentsofpause.blogspot.com
I think what you're doing here connecting moms is wonderful!

Hi My name is Alyshia and On May 27 2009 I lost My baby Girl Aryanna May Fegraeus. I was full trem seven days overdue. It was and still is the worst thing that has ever happened to me. I am only 21 and everyone says that everything happens for a reason. They say tha i am strong but that is not how i feel. When we got that Autopsy back everything was normal i just ran out of amneyotic fluid. Should they have checked that like that month to make shure that i had enough fluid? So another ? that i have is why? when i asked the docter if i could be enduced they told me that i had to wait. Now I say wait for what. I thought that a mother knows so why dident thay listen to what i had to say? when i gave birth to Aryanna later the docter told me that next time i will be able that have closer care and have my baby 2 weeks early.

Dear Christine,
No matter how sad the reason for meeting at this blog, it is wonderful that you've created the opportunity and that it's possible these days for bereft parents to communicate.
We lost our Ariane Eira during her breech delivery, 17 years ago in January. How I would have appreciated a platform such as this one then. Recently drawings I made after our loss were included in the art show Mother/mother in Brooklyn N.Y. and I wanted to share that with you and your circle. While we miss the baby we never were able to see grow up, each year that we celebrate her birth date, we know we miss the older girl she would have been.
My thoughts go out to all of you.
Warmly,
Judith

I lost my son on the 28th of February this year, and each day hurts as much as the next. My EDD is this Friday. I'm terrified. I've started a blog as well, if anyone wants to read that - http://sweetsoftsmudge.blogspot.com/

My name is Katherine, and my daughter's name was Ember. She was stillborn at 37 weeks due to cord compression four months ago on July 7th 2010. I'd really like to share our story too

Hello! I know you don't know me, but we've got something in common. I got your blog address off the Stirrup Queen's blogroll and was wondering if you wouldn't mind helping me help a couple who is trying to add a little one to their family. We're holding a silent auction for them this weekend (Friday and Saturday) on goteamwitt.blogspot.com and need help getting the word out! We would love it if you would spread the word via social media or here on your blog. Additionally, we are always looking for more donations to auction off, so if you or someone you know might be interested in making a donation, all the information is under the donate tab. If you have any questions or would be willing to post a pre-written blog post about the auction and the sponsored couple, please contact Kristin at goteamwitt@gmail.com Thanks in advance for taking the time to consider this!
