• oh red, my dearest red.. it could be the twin… I feel so sorry for you – this has just been the cruelest roller coaster. I am still full of hope for you though that there is a baby in there. Sometimes others have to have hope and faith for you, at times when you can’t. All my love, Karin

  • Just wanted to add that there’s lot of information online about stress and miscarriages. Some still question if they are related but many find a link. One site that has done some research on women found that 90 percent of the women, whose ages ranged from 18 to 34, with elevated levels of the stress-induced hormone miscarried during the first…[Read more]

  • red, I so understand this is stressful for you and you are definitely in my prayers. I personally know this is harder done than said, but try and find ways to relax, occupy your mind. Stressing is not healthy for you or baby. So I know it’s hard, but try.. Once I found out that stress can affect my baby, I got so determined to find peace and…[Read more]

  • shawshoo, so glad all went well with your ultrasound and welcome to the blue team! xox

  • RED, I love you too!!! Let me know when you are ready to meet. Just take your time, I understand. Sending you love, strength and prayers. xox

  • thuy, let us know what the doctor say.. It may look like tissue but is probably a small clot of blood. Hope all is okay. Let us know sweetie. xox

  • I too have ligaments pain. Usually they happen when I get out of bed, up from a chair etc. It is the sudden change of position that does it. I too have heard that water helps. In general water helps with a lot of things and it is super important to drink lots. I definitely learned that in this pregnancy and am drinking more than I ever have.…[Read more]

  • malerie, I pray that peace will surround you and you will be able to rest.

  • Yes skittles, we are anxiously waiting to hear from you..

  • I am always keeping an eye out for gifts for people, so I don’t have to do it all last minute. I love shopping though – and have missed not being able to. I did do a fair bit of ebay shopping this year, being on bed rest and all. Wow, just one week left until Christmas!

  • mugs, wow, 30 weeks, congratulations!! I am so glad all is going well! Not long until you will hold your little precious baby in your arms. xox

  • skittles, glad you got to see your little girl again. I am sorry there are a few issues but glad your doctor doesn’t seem concerned and hopefully by next scan things will have improved.

    1sttimemommy10, glad you and baby are doing well. I failed my 1 hour test so now I have to go back for a 3 hour test. Not looking forward to that but hopefully…[Read more]

  • Tara, all the best with the ultrasound. I know it can be terrifying but I hope the ultrasound will bring good news and you can start to relax a bit more.

  • Canadian, we are moving from Australia where we have been the past 5 years back to USA, to my husband’s hometown in WA state. Sarahann, so sorry for your loss. I honestly don’t think it is your AF already. It is not unusual for women to bleed for up to 3 weeks after a loss. I didn’t have a D&C so I don’t know if it is comparable but I had several…[Read more]

  • AF has started for me too, and that means TTC is back on again soon. Couldn’t TTC the last two months because of an upcoming overseas move (can’t be more than 36 weeks pregnant when flying). I am looking forward to trying again, and I am not…
    Canadian> You didn’t say anything that hurt me, not at all.
    I am pretty convinced I had some sort of…[Read more]

  • I had food poisoning at 6 weeks but didn’t start bleeding until 12 weeks. I don’t think there was a connection in my case. I was checked for placenta abruption and they didn’t see any. It is scary though to think how many things can affect your pregnancy. I think I am going to be so careful next time around. Hopefully I won’t be too scared to even…[Read more]

  • Canadian, oh trust me, I am releasing emotions daily. And getting tired of it. What is hard about this is the mother and I were pregnant at the same time, only 3 weeks apart, both with girls. I see her every week. I will never be able to look at her daughter and not think of Kathleen. My friend is moving away next week though… By the way, just…[Read more]

  • I did something really dumb yesterday and I feel like an emotional wreck. My good friend asked me if we can babysit her children on Saturday while she performs at the yearly Christmas carols. I said yes, thinking it would just be her 5 year old daughter and her 3 year old boy, and that her daughter Sophie(3 weeks younger than what Kathleen should…[Read more]

  • mets, so sorry about your doctor experience. I do plan to change doctor myself. When I went back to see him after my loss, he hadn’t read a single of the personalized letters that was send to him from the hospital and he never once asked how I was doing/coping. I think after a loss you definitely need a doctor that is a little more sensitive.…[Read more]

  • Megan, thank you so much!
