Hi Girls!

I've peeked in here from time to time but for some reason never made the jump to join. Though, we have had a couple of crazy months in our lives between DH getting laid off, new jobs, moving, baby etc. But as we near the anniversary of our angel baby I really feel like I want to be apart of this group.

I'm Christine, wife to Joe of 7 years. We have Chloe (6), Alexis (4), and Jude born on October 14th, 2013. Our angel baby Everleigh was born December 7th 2012, at 17 weeks. We found out a week before (11/30/12) that she wasn't going to make it. We lost her to a cystic hygroma/ fetal hydrops, most likely related to Turner's syndrome though the tests came back inconclusive.

We were blessed right away with our rainbow baby and that has help a TON with the healing. But, like I said, coming up on her anniversary it's hit me like a ton of rocks again. We are so blessed to have our little Jude, he is an amazing baby and just the love of our live. But... yeah... you girls know.

Pregnancy was a little more rough with Jude just the aches and pains seemed stronger this time. At the end I ended up developing polyhydranmios. So the delivery wasn't quite what I had in mind but it all ended up well and we are doing great. Here is my birth story for Jude. http://www.justmommies.com/forums/f1...ure-heavy.html (Jude Gryffin-- Picture heavy!)

Anyway, I recognize some of you from previous DDCs/TTCAL. I look forward to jumping in here. I don't know why I didn't sooner.

Hey stranger I've missed you but have checked up on you every now and then to see how you were doing. Jude is such a handsome little guy!

We had Clyde's first birthday a few weeks ago... I think the days leading up to it were the worst. You will break down I'm sure, but I think sometimes crying can be therapeutic and necessary. It doesn't change the pain and heartache though, anniversaries are so hard! Sending my love

Im so sorry for the loss of your little girl and welcome you here with a big heart. Your little boy is just angelic, and I love his name! As the days get closer to your little Everleigh's birthday, I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers for a peaceful day of remembering her.

Welcome! What a beautiful baby boy! I am so sorry for your loss. I also lost a baby to Turners (determined by chromosomal testing after my D&E), I was about 12 weeks when I found out. That baby was due on my DD's birthday, so that day was a bittersweet day for me. The angelversary is very hard, you are right, unfortunately we do know. I am glad you found your way here, these are great ladies
