Hi all,

As requested, here is a thread for you to add your intorductions on.

If you are new here, a very sad welcome, it's not a forum anyone WANTS to belong to, but if you have a reason to be here you have found an awesome group of supportive, understanding women (and men on the odd occasion, all are welcome).

To start, I Amanda, aka Manda, our daughter Trinity Clair was the inspiration of this site, our girl was born sleeping on June 19th 2005 at 39 weeks & 3 days, no cause was ever found. She was conceived after 9 months of TTC and an early miscarriage. I am married to Corey and am a SAHM to Loralei Trinity and expecting Gabriels arrival at the beginning of Oct.

Hi, my name is Carley, married to Phill and SAHM to Bayden ,5, and our angel girl Julia Rose-Joy.
Sadly Julia was born sleeping on 3rd November 2006 at 26 weeks gestation.
With Julia I had anti k antibodies in my blood which reacted with Julia's blood and caused fetal hydrops, which is what we lost her to.
We will always love and cherish our angel girl until we meet again :cry:

Hi, I'm Alana and am a SAHM to Joel (2003) and Julia (2006). My DH and I lost our little daughter Maria in June 2005 - she was stillborn at 24 weeks gest. The doctors think it may have been due to a malfunctioning placenta.

Our grief has been really hard to deal with but made easier by talking to others here who have had a similar experience. I am currently studying part time - training to become a counsellor. I really hope to be able to help others who have experienced similar losses.

We live in West Auckland.

Post subject:  Just lost number two

Hi, I'm new here :D
Was put in to this fourm by another lovely lady who miscarried only days before I did.
I had a miscarriage last year in September, its was heart breaking but I thought there was no way It would happen again :cry: sadly a year to the date I lost my last baby I lost this one. The first time I was 8wks pregnant and this time I was only 6wks. I feel like because I was so early on I should just get over it, but I can't, to me it was a baby, it had a place in the family and everything from the time I found out I was pregnant was planned around having a third child.
I'm feeling really down, like my body is failing me and I feel like a failure myself :(
Just wanted to get some support from those who know what I'm going through.
Any way, I hope this gets tacked on the end of the introductions because something tells me I'm doing this whole thing wrong :D

Hi Two2many,
Well firstly, you're doing it right :) and thank you for your intro.

I'm so sorry you've misscarried again and the timing being a year after your last, couldn't be worse, not that theres ever a good time to misscarry. I miscarried at 5 weeks, and I know the feeling of thinking that because you were so early you should just get over it, but it's not necessarily the case. You still had hopes and dreams that were lost, it's understandable you are hurting. You're not a faliure, but again, think you'll find tht pretty much everyone here has felt like that so you're not alone, we're all here for you. So, a sad welcome to our forum, I'm glad you found us, hope to get to know you better in the future.

Just realised I hadn't introduced myself either.
I'm Lauriel. I'm French and married to Fin, who's a school teacher.
My first pregnancy was my first miscarriage, at Christmas 2002 (with my family visiting from France, way to add to the stress!) at 8 weeks. They reckon the baby had died around 6 weeks.
I have a 4 year old daughter Eloise (can't do the accents on the MacBook).
In August 2006 I had to be induced at 24 weeks because my second daughter Chloe had spina bifida (8 vertebraes) and brain damage. The doctor stopped her heart before they induced me. I had 2 weeks to comes to terms with losing my baby before it happened, the time between the scan and the induction. I was in France at the time and the travel insurance people flew Fin over to be with me. Chloe was cremated and her ashes are in a little urn on the bookcase in the hallway.
2 days before my birthday last September I had a not so little boy we called Aidan. He's sooooooo gorgeous and I'm so in love. I found a boy after 2 girls a bit daunting but I wouldn't change him for the world!

I would like another baby but Fin keeps saying he's "happy with 2".

Hi ladies,
Just a quick introduction from me. A few of you will know me already, my name is Jacquie and I am mummy to a beautiful DD Erin who is 19 months. We had a m/c in August last year, which still rips me up to think about - so I try not to sometimes :(
Anyway, I look forward to getting to know you all some more!

Hi Jax, nice to meet you. Sorry to hear about the loss of your little angel last year - life is a very cruel thing at times, as we all know on this site! Anyway I'm glad you have joined us and it will be nice getting to know you.

Mmmm.... I haven't introduced myself in this part of the forum, so here goes.

My name is Yvonne and Neil & I are Mummy and Daddy to DS Flynn, who is 3yrs old and we recently (3mths ago) lost our little princess, Satori, who was born sleeping at 37weeks.

Satori died due to Gestational Diabetes, which had been consistantly tested for,( as I had had it with my son)but attacked very aggressively and quickly (a 10day period)late in pregnancy, which in turn killed of a large percentage of my placenta and stop Satori getting what she need to survive. I am very gutted that my body failed her, especially when she could have been delivered earlier and alive, if only we had known. :cry:

Thanks for sharing your story Yvonne :bighug:

I'm at the opposite end of the spectrum sometimes - things happened so suddenly for us that in a way I wish I hadn't known I was pregnant at all. I tested positive on a Wednesday afternoon, and I began to miscarry on the Friday morning of the same week :cry:

Aaaaaanyway... I'm glad I finally got off my lazy bum and signed up here! :D

Hi Jax,
The way I look at it is that a loss is a loss at whatever stage, because its a loss of all of those hopes and dreams. Every situation is just so different, but I suppose that the common donominator is that all of these angels were, and still are, so wanted and loved, even though they can't be with us. :angelc:

Anyway, glad you have signed on and look forward chatting soon. :)

Post subject:  Hi guys,

Well I am another Newbie to your family. We lost our daughter Georgia Grace to very fast progressing pre eclampsia at only 26 weeks gestation on 11 January 2008. Georgia is our first born and after being with my partner for 9 years, was long over due in our lives. She was perfect and beautiful, but still and weighing in at 360gms.

I want to thank everyone who has shared their stories on this site. While this is a family that no one wishes to be in, I have found that this site has helped me over the last few weeks. Just reading how other people have been through similar experiences is strangly comforting. I have moments where I think, no one understands (my partner has switched off to the emotions now), I turn here and read. Thank you.

Hi GG's Mum,

Welcome to TLO - so sorry you have to be here :( I'm glad you have joined this group as hopefully it will be a comfort to you, through this very sad time as well as further down the track. I must admit that I too kept reading through the treads for a few weeks before I joined, and found it comforting as well.
Georgia Grace is a lovely name, and I am so sorry that you lost your sweet little girl - its such a horrible experience to go through :cry:
I felt a bit the same about my husband, but after finally communicating, have found that he just mourned Satori in such a different way. He became very very busy, and has stayed that way, but assures me that he thinks of Satori often, even though he does not verbalise it. He also held back his emotions to a certain degree as he did not want me to see him upset, as he thought it may set me off - which it would have, but that would have been ok.

All I can say is be kind to yourself, do whatever you feel is right for you and visit the TLO whenever you need a big cyber((((hug))). Take care and thanks for sharing your story. Yvonne :bighug:

Hi GGs Mum,
I'm so sorry this is late. A very sad welcome to our site, and your loss is so recent too, you must still be in a whirlwind of emotions. I think you'll fin that all men greive differently, thats part of the reason this site exists, it was my husbands way of dealing with his grief but it also doubled to help me deal with mine and reach out to other people (mainly women but we have had the odd man), I guess it's tripled in that it's helped so many other people too.
Please come here whenever you want, we are all here for each other, an all know the grieving process all to well.
What a beautiful name for a beautiful little girl I'm sure.

Ruby (Jax),
Hi, I didn't officially welcome you to our site. Your miscarraige was similar to mine, I found out I was pg on a sat (maybe fri???) from memory and started miscarrying on thursday, I almost felt like a fraud greiving for that baby and in hindsight I probably repressed alot of my grief, but we still had hopes and dreams for our bubs. Still, you'll find I don't talk about that baby much, if at all, I'm not sure why, maybe I still have those feelings of it not being a 'real' baby because I was told te baby was not an ebryo yet 'just' a blastocyste, so I never felt like I could grieve.

Anyway, rambling now, better go becaus ethe 2 beautiful children I have with me are requiring my attention, oops, make that one needs rescuing from the other.................

(((hugs))) to you both, look forward to getting to know you and your angels.
