I am 35 years old, living with stage IV Endometriosis, possibly adenomyosis and struggled with infertility for almost 4 years. I also struggled with PPD and now struggle with PMDD. I am a mother to a son that was born at 18 weeks and too precious for this earth; and now a mother to a son born in August 2011. By journaling here, I hope to benefit both for myself and for others that are dealing with this disease and fertility struggles. Thanks for visiting!

Hi, I heard about your loss of Wyatt through LFCA. I am so very sorry that your son had so little time with you.

My son also had no amniotic fluid and died at 20 weeks, but the circumstances were different.

Much love to you as you adjust to life without Wyatt.

Sending you big, big hugs!

I just heard about you via Alicia (YaYa) on her blog "Tears for my baby".

I just wanted to send you some ((HUGS))

I, too, am a bereaved parent to a baby angel.

What precious little footprints, and beautiful blanket and clothes. Even now that he's no longer with you physically, you have tangible evidence that he was, and something you'll be able to treasure and remember him by.

Ter said...

Thanks for your comment on my blog... please know you can contact me anytime you need someone to talk to. I can email you some online resources tomorrow, hopefully I won't forget, and if I do, remind me, if you're interested.

And although I know nothing will ever make the pain completely disappears, I know it helps, even a little bit, to know you're not alone, and so, I'm here to let you know you are NOT alone in your grief.

(I'm sorry for rambling.... I remember the early days and how alone I felt til I found some online friends who went through a loss too.)

Those keepsakes are really beautiful Allison. I know you will treasure them for the rest of your life. The footprints are especially amazing. I am glad you have those. We're still praying for you about a hundred times a day. Daniel sends his best to you. He has been in tears over your loss, as he also follows your blog.
