Today would of been my due date Maybe this makes me a bad person but I'm not all that sad (I'm a bit sad) and I think is because of this little one that I'm carrying. I think that if I wasn't pg it would be a worse day, now I have this little one to focus on.

Aw Patty! You are not a bad person. My edd was in April and it was very hard...I wasn't pg yet. My 1yr angelversary was here recently and although I was sad................I guess I had comfort knowing that I was carrying this lil person inside me. If you need anything, i'm here!

It does help very much being pregnant again!!! I cant imagine what so many women go through on their due dates with no hope yet, no new baby growing inside them...

You are blessed!

I'm sorry Patty! Take today for yourself and do nice things that you enjoy.

I completely understand about not being all that sad, I completely missed one of my due dates last month, I believe it was Aug 26th; but it was two days after our big ultrasound and I was on Cloud 9. Now though, I keep thinking, how could I have missed that date?? I have another one coming up this month; and I know it's going to be harder. One of my dear friends and his wife were due two days after my EDD 09/28, however they had an emergency delivery last weekend. I am happy for them, but crushed for me, as my little one was supposed to be here before theirs.

Anyway, sorry to hi-jack your thread; I just wanted to commisserate with you.

Please do not appologize. I wanted to share with you girls because you girl understand and you all your stories that I do like to hear about them, I guess in a way it gets to know each other a bit better. I almost missed this one, I did not remember this morning, I got to work and then I remembered.

EM- I know I'm blessed that I have this little one growing, I guess that's what makes this day bitter/sweet.

Sending huge hugs to you Patty. When my EDD came in February, I was a mess. I'm glad you have your current little miracle to keep you smiling today.

It does make a world of difference to be pg when your edd for your angel comes around....I was sad when my angels edd came in March, but my growing belly made me feel so much better. I still think about how he would have been turning 6months this week, even though I have a precious daughter to hold right now,...

I was the same way hun. The day itself was not a real sad day for me, but as I watched the babies being born in my old DDC, that was tough. However, I agree to do something nice for yourself today. It's obviously on your mind, and you to deserve to treat yourself to a little pampering.

((hugs)) My EDD was tough, like Michelle said, and part of that was because I wasn't pregnant again.

I expect my angelversay will not be nearly as bad (although I'll be sad) because I can be grateful for a new pregnancy rather than just having no hope.

I think a new little one in your womb doesn't make it all better, but it DOES help.
