Just introducing myself. I've been looking for support, and haven't found much that's consoling, not that anything is. I lost my daughter Noemi Lise in November, she was just 9 weeks old. It was my first day back to work, and I left her with the sitter. I got a call at 3 pm while I was pumping at work...I can't breathe just remembering. I'd love to talk to other women about how you deal. The 5 months since she's been gone has been forever and yesterday all at once. I also just found out I'm pregnant again...due in November around the time Noemi passed away, but I feel so guilty, like she's being replaced. I want this baby and pregnancy, but I miss my Noemi with all my being. I fear everyday something going wrong. I look forward to reading your stories.

First off I'm sorry for the loss of your sweet Noemi. My heart breaks for you. Some things that have helped me in my journey with grief is blogging and just music in general. I've become very obsessed with music. Also sometimes just running helps me too. It is still hard though, even now 22 months later i have days where I just want to cry and cry

Thank you, I'm not very computer oriented, but I have tried music, unfortunately my favorites tend to evoke memories. I think just knowing that I'm not as singular a case as it felt like will help.

Welcome, I am sorry for your loss. I lost my daughter January 14 this year. She was 16 days old. You are not alone. Follow your gut on things you feel you want to do, that is what I do. Sometimes indulging those little things that make no sense just feels so right and can ease your mind. I also keep a blog, and this forum is a big help to me.

Welcome. I am so sorry for the loss of your little girl. I'm Mellie. I lost my son Zachary last August when he was 4 months old due to complications of his heart defects. I too am pregnant again and also feel incredibly guilty at times. I can fully understand the fear about something going wrong. My anxiety is eating me away inside piece by piece.

I am so sorry for your loss. I lost my precious son, Isaac (he was almost six months old). It will be three years next month, and it still hurts. My heart still aches for him and not an hour goes by where I don't think of him. We have been blessed with our second son, Noah, who was born ten months to the day that Isaac went home to heaven. I had so much anxiety and guilt during that pregnancy. There have been many mixed emotions to this day. I'm now pregnant with my third boy, but there are still worries in the back of my mind. They will always be there. This board is wonderful and everyone is very encouraging.

So sorry for your loss hun I lost my two year old son in October and I found out I was pregnant at the same exact time, I'm very close to giving birth to my daughter so I know exactly how you feel. Just know that your daughter will never be replaced, just a new child for you to love and its going to have a guardian angel to watch over them. You will have good days and then you will have days that you just want to cry. Know that its all ok and normal to feel that way.
