Mom to Tyson Zammit

July 7th, 2009 – October 30th, 2010

Australia

My son Tyson Zammit, was brought into this world on the 7th of July 2009. 7th of the 7th….I always thought there was something lucky and special about that date. I would always look at my little boy as any proud mother would with such awe knowing he was the most beautiful baby I had ever seen. He was such a smart boy so alert and intrigued in anything he would see his mumma doing. At 5 months he was crawling and walking at 9months. It was so weird to see such a little person walking around so small! I loved everything about him. His cheeky ways, his infectious laugh, and his glowing face when he smiled and waved at a stranger. I believed he touched everyone’s hearts where ever he went. [Read more...]

I found out I was pregnant for the first time in June 2005. I was nervous about telling my mom, because I was raised “first get married and then babies” lol. After I told my mom MY good news, it took her a while to get over it. Didn’t take her very long though, because the next thing you know she starts buying baby clothes. Me too, I just couldn’t resist the cute little outfits. [Read more...]

Mom of Caroline Elizabeth

Born sleeping October 20th, 2010

Knoxville, Tennessee

 

I decided that I thought it would be a good thing if I went ahead and told my whole story.  Maybe sharing this will help me; maybe it will help someone else who is questioning God’s involvement in such a tough world.  If nothing else, maybe someone will learn that they are truly not alone.

Mom to Jayla Rae Krenzel

Born and Passed January 22nd, 2011

Garden City, Kansas

My boyfriend Latrell and I were only together a couple months when we first found out we had gotten pregnant. We were very excited yet very nervous. So I started to get my insurance and everything situated then out of no where 3 weeks later we had a miscarriage. I was so devastated I was only 8 weeks along and it came out of nowhere. So I started looking up online about getting pregnant again and the one thing I kept coming across was most women get pregnant almost instantly after having 2 normal periods. Well I guess they were right almost exactly 2 months later we got pregnant again with our daughter Jayla. My boyfriend was at work the night I found out, so I went straight to his job to show him the test. We were more than excited we had another chance. [Read more...]

As soon I found out I was pregnant I was ecstatic. I thought maybe this will be when I get to hold my baby. Everything about this pregnancy seemed to be going well. He was developing right on schedule, I had been eating right and things in general were going well. March 10th i found out I was having a boy. My significant other was not surprised and was happy he was right. I started to dream about the day I’d have my son in my arms. [Read more...]

Mom to Anya D.

Born and Died April 24th, 2008

and Tegan L.

Born and Died April 25th, 2008

Lancaster, PA

Almost three years ago, I lost my innocence when I became a mother to our precious twins, Anya and Tegan. Could it really be nearly three years already? I can’t imagine that we have survived 36 months – countless holidays, family gatherings, and quiet nights – without their presence. I’ll never understand why they were born too soon, why Amy started spotting on a Wednesday evening in April 2008. She held up the toilet paper for me to see the evidence while I was chatting on the phone with my mom. With a finger to her lips, she beckoned me not to tell. Why would I tell? What would I tell?

and Harper – Miscarriage Lost at 6.5 weeks  on March 10th, 2011

Mogadore, Ohio

I am a mother of a 2 year old son, so I feel  guilty writing about my losses as I already have a living child, but I have come to learn that any loss is painful so I am here to share my story.  My husband and I decided that it seemed like the right time to start trying around June of 2010.  We had no issues with our son so we assumed this would be a breeze and I was, at the time, uneducated and unaware of any situation involving any kind of pregnancy loss.  However, that changed all too quickly.  [Read more...]

St. Peters, Missouri

February 7, 2010, forever changed my life. After arriving at a Superbowl party, I was rushed to the hospital only to have surgery to remove a baby I didn’t know existed before I had gotten there. My body went into shock as I lost 80cc’s of blood. My left tube ruptured. I lost the baby we had been trying for, my left tube and hope all in one day. I lost my angel baby #1 around 3:30 a.m. on February 8, 2010. [Read more...]

Mom to Ryleigh Jayne

Born at 14 weeks 6 days on April 24th, 2006

England, UK

I found out I was pregnant with Ryleigh on Sunday 5th February 2006 in Mcdonalds toilets – I remember the time, it was 11:30am. Me and Stuart had been trying for a baby since August 2005, we were both sure that the test would come back negative and very shocked but happy when it came back positive. When I came out of the toilets Stuart could tell just by the big grin on my face and then i passed him the test and he had a big grin on his face. I was so shocked that I could not stop shaking and could not eat my Mcdonalds as I felt too sick with mixed emotions. After Mcdonalds we went to a shop and bought two little baby grows for our growing bean and some mittens, we put them in our baby box once we arrived back at mine. [Read more...]

Groveport, Ohio

In February 20, 2010, at 28 weeks and 3 days of pregnancy, our baby boy, Michael Joseph was delivered still.  I had gone to my midwife that morning after not feeling any movement for a couple days.  I had felt a funny twinge a couple days before that, but didn’t think much of it because I had that same feeling a few weeks prior.  My midwife could not locate a heartbeat, and my blood pressure was quite high, so she suggested we go to the nearest hospital emergency room.

This is a brief recollection of Edy’s story, I will be adding more details when I remember them, and can see to type past all of the painful tears that sting my eyes like battery acid.
