I hadn't realized how much April was involved in my pregnancies until yesterday...I conceived Avery and my first angel (Matthew) in April and lost my last (Maddie) in April...

I'm sorry you have to deal with April, Brittanie. You're definitely in my prayers!
Love you, girl!!!

See, that would be a reasonable reason to hate April. I just think about all my lasts that happened in April, and I hate it. I wish I could just skip to her birthday.

I'm here. Today is my birthday so April is a good month for me. Sounds like you both have good reasons to hate April. August is my bad month....although that's hard too because Isaac's birthday is in August too...so, it's a bad month and a good month.

I hate April as well. Three years ago yesterday my dearest friend in the world passed away. It has been really hard with life with out him. He was heavily involved in our daily lives, Zach and Abbi adored him. Abbi was two when he passed, she remembers him but not like Zachary. Zach was 9, it has been very painful and hard for him. He used to call Uncle Scott everyday, especially when something fantastic happened with school or scouts. He still catches himself picking up the phone to call Scott and then he remembers. I mentioned on one of the other forums that my son was crying the other night in anticipation of yesterday. Zach looked right at me and said " Why does Uncle Scott have to be an angel, God already took my big sister, why does he need them both" I have no answer for him because I feel the same way. Then my other dear friend's grandmother passed away yesterday, who I was also close to. So I could pretty much skip this **** month. Sorry for the rambling rant!

I'm sorry for everyone that has bad memories of April. The entire summer pretty much sucks for me, and I am already tensing in anticipation. Hopefully it will fly by for all of you and that you eventually have some lovely memories to replace the negative.
And Brittanie, I think disliking April given your situation makes perfect sense. I always have less trouble with due dates than angelversaries.

Well, even the day we confirmed her death was in May (May 1st). But I think it's all the anticipation of that last day she was alive and all the things I wish I could change about it. All my guilt centers on that, all the things I should have noticed and done while she was still alive.

Ugh.

And lots of to you Laurie. I hope the summer isn't as bad as you anticipate it to be. I generally find that my anticipation is worse than the actual day.

I'm here. April is OK for me- the end of May is when we found out my fluid was low with Matthew, and he was born July 1st. I'm hoping it'll pass to August quickly, since that's when this princess is coming!
