It seems like we have a ton of new faces lately. It's always sad when someone has to join us. I think we all can agree that it's good that we all found each other.

Tell us an update and something that we don't know about you.

I'm Sheila your Co-host. I know I'm not on here ALL the time or as much as I'd like but I'm still around. It's been 2 1/2yr since we lost our baby. It's been a long journey and we have come so far in our healing. Right now I have my Sweet Ellie who just turned 1 on the 13 and on unexpected baby on the way.

Something that you might now know is at one time I had 10 cats. It drove dh crazy but I have a feeling he secretly loved each and everyone of them

I'm Natalie. I lost Devin last March, and just last week had a miscarriage - ectopic that ended in surgery and the removal of my tube. I'm an IVFer, though, so the tube doesn't matter much.

Speaking of cats... I work with them at a cat rescue. I'm sitting at my desk with four cats in the office right now. (Hmmm, there's usually more...)

My name is Rebecca and my son Ethan was stillborn in February. It'll be exactly 3 months on Mother's Day

Something you might not know about me is that I used to work as an anthropologist at the Smithsonian Museum in Washington D.C. At the same time I worked for the Chief Forensic Anthropologist of the State of Rhode Island (she was based at the Smithsonian). If you've ever seen the show Bones, it is based on where I used to work.

I was just thinking about doing this...lol.

I'm Brittanie, the other cohost. Cora's 3rd birthday is this Saturday. I can't believe it's been 3 years since I said hello and goodbye to my little girl.

Since then, I've had Erin (6/7/07) and Patrick (2/25/09), but nothing completely gets rid of the pain.


Anyway, something you don't know about me? My apartment is right next to the state highway. When I turn on the gps in my car, it thinks I'm ON the highway.

My name is Amy. I lost our angel Gavin on March 6th, 2008.

Something you might not know about me.....hmmm....DH and I got married about 3 months after being together "officially". I say officially because we were pretty much exclusive a couple months before that I just didn't want to call it dating when he was on the other side of the world. It's worked for us so far and I wouldn't change a thing!

Hi. I am 40 and lost our baby 3 weeks ago. We are going to try 1 more time and going to have to wait for 3 months as BF is out of town for work for that long. I am still having a rough time with the loss and am so greatful for my friends here at JM.

Something you don't know about me: I love cats. We have 2 and I am going to pick up one more tonight (I am going to take care of BF's while he is gone). I also have a blanket that I take with me when I go out of town for work. Yup, just like a little kid

I'm Mandy, 26... after 1 cycle of TTC I got my BFP, only to lose my angel in early March. I was diagnosed with PCOS and have been taking Metformin for the past 11 days. I am planning to stay on it throughout my next pregnancy.

Something you don't know about me: I have never lived in one house for more than 3 years! I am a habitual mover... from IN to PA to WA to IL to Spain to IA to CA (briefly back to PA), and my anchor is now down in Santa Cruz, CA!

Me2! Wow, I don't know anyone that moves more than I do and everyone thinks I am crazy! I lived all over NY state, moved to GA, back to NY, back to GA, to Florida now here in PA and I am ready to gooooooooooooo. If nothing else, we are moving in August to a different place in PA.

The boys sometimes get sick of moving but they have friends all over the place and they still visit all of them. Corey (my oldest) has lived in 14 different houses. (some of them were short stays when he was a baby because we would get evicted for non payment... <sarcasm> My ex was loads of fun... <end of sarcasm>

Feels good that I am not alone on this one!
