This blog was started as a way to work through the grief of losing my baby March 9, 2011. I found reading stories of other women comforting while I've been going through this and hope that I can help anyone else experiencing the same thing.

I submitted my story and my photo to two different web pages (I think they are sister sites) dedicated to women who have lost babies. The two pages are Faces of Loss and Faces of Loss, Faces of Hope. I was moved to do this by a local girl that I met that also lost a baby. She friended me on Facebook after a mutual friend told her about me. On her facebook page there is a link to her Faces of Loss, Faces of Hope story. I just reread it today and cried over her loss. Click HERE for her story.

I'm still sad today. I'm sad about Bear, I'm sad I'm not pregnant again, I'm sad it's almost been 12 weeks and life goes on.

I guess I figured out how to add links on here. I tried before and couldn't quite get it. This time I was successful! So if my photo and story are published on those sites I'll share those links here too!

I was talking in my last post about how I go to that Baby Center page and kind of obsess about getting pregnant again. I think it might be healthy for me to avoid that page for a while. I think maybe I'll just wait until I'm actually pregnant to get on there. It's a nice supportive group, but it's also kind of depressing. I'm going to think about it a bit more before making a final decision I guess.


  1. I understand. TTC after losing our kids becomes a desperation that is just something you can't even describe. It would be so much easier if we could just flip a switch and be pregnant. THinking of you

  2. I'm hiding from the babycenter site, too... it's been 16 week today. I'm still sad.

  3. Hi,
    You commented on my story on Faces of Loss, Faces of Hope and I just read your story on here and it made me sad. My immediate thoughts after my baby died were to have another one right away, but my doctor said to at least wait a year because you need time to grieve and your body needs time to get back to normal... just passing that on. I'm still sad though and I'm sure i will be for a long while. I'll be thinking of you.

  4. I had to avoid BBC for over a year and even when we did conceive it took me until 20 weeks to go on there. Give your self some time, you deserve it.
