I lurk from time to time.


Mainly to see how some girls I have come to know are doing without having my pregnancy or son be "in their face". I also come to see baby pics of those born too soon because I really think every baby is a miracle and the pictures kind of give me a sense of peace, where some (ignorant people IMO) might find them disturbing.

My heart goes out to anyone who lost a child.

hey ladies..i come by and lurk once in awhile. to be honest i dont really know why, i think its because i have a lot of respect for someone who lost a child and can still keep it together and go on. i know this is nothing like losing your baby but my grandma (she basically raised me) passed away on 12/13/2008 and still to this day not a day goes by that i dont cry and miss her. i often times cry two-three times a day. so i think i just wonder if i am like this over someone that wasnt my child i wonder how all the mommies do it when it actually was there baby. i hope that made sence?

Hi ladies,

I come here because I have a close friend who lost her 3rd child at 3 months old to a fatal disorder called NKH. I really look to see what advice you all offer so I can understand her better. I really hope to see her on this board soon even though her baby wasn't necessarily born into heaven so she can get the support from women who have walked that path. You all are so kind and generous for sharing your stories with everyone. Your angel babies are so beautiful. You ladies touch my heart and I wish nothing but the best for you all.

I came here initially cause of Jenn... now I come because I've been following several of you closely in the 2.5 years I've been on JM. I cry for your losses, I cry for your joy.



I also blog stalk Natalie and have since March 08, gives me something to look forward to every couple of days. She was due with Katherine around the same time my aunt was with her lil girl, they're very close in age.

Hi, I'm Rebecca, I have been quiet lately with the birth of my living son, but I came here last year when my oldest son Ethan was stillborn. Your friend's story really touched me though. When my living son Grant was born, he was rushed straight to the NICU - his symptoms looked like a metabolic disorder, and his labwork pointed to NKH. We spent days fearing the worst. Grant started to get better though, and a re-draw of the labs showed that it was NOT NKH. Apparently someone at the lab had forgotten to refrigerate the sample, causing it to incorrectly show high levels of glycine. After 12 long days in the NICU and an accurate diagnosis, my son is home and healthy.

Now that I know the agony of THINKING your child has NKH, my heart goes out to those whose children actually have it. I am so sorry that your friend and her family have experienced such a loss. Please let her know that I am thinking of her.

Rebecca, Thank you so much for your thoughts and prayers and I will definitely pass that message on to my friend and their family.

Your story has also touched me. I am so glad that Grant is home and healthy after a tough journey into this world. I am sorry for your loss with Ethan and thank you for taking the time to tell me your story.

I lurk every few days. I lurked more when I was pregnant with Lucy and there were a few other pregnant women here at the time. It helped me to read that some of you were facing the same anxieties I was during pregnancy.

this is my first time lurking here. Im visiting bc my sister in law recently lost her baby at 14 weeks and i couldnt imagine how to handle it. she has since found out shes preg again. but still. i cant imagine.I have a son who will be one the 30th of this month, and i just cry at the thought of not having him. you ladies r like real life heros. I worked a L and D doing registration and i remember a lady came in having a placental abruption and it broke my heart. she was 22 weeks and her lil boy passed. I havent gotten her out of my mind since, and this was last november. I struggle sometimes with my baby and how he cries or just with life and im so weak. i admire u ladies! i hope yall dont mind im here
