I'm sorry that it is hard for you right now. I can't imagine going through so many losses. But I do know that the baby you are carrying right now will have a much better chance to be successful. Perhaps the angel twin wanted to make sure you had the best chance of bringing home it's sibling. It can't be easy, but worrying will not help the baby you are carrying now. Just try to be less worried, you will be sad, as we all do sometimes, and that is normal. Once you are holding a baby in your arms you will be totally happy.

I am so sorry for your losses. I pray that the other twin will be fine and you will be holding him/her in 7 months time.

Oh honey, you must be terrified. I know that I am when pregnant, and I never had any reason to worry with Erin and Patrick (except for the fact that I lost Cora. No actual problems with the pregnancy or anything).

But, I want to let you know, I was a twin. My mother miscarried my twin at 3 months (and was totally surprised to find out she was still pregnant...she didn't know she was pregnant with twins). So, hopefully the second twin will continue to hold on while you mourn this loss. It's okay to grieve for this newest angel of yours.

Thanks to babydoll213 for the siggy! My kids' blog Cora's blog

I'm so sorry to hear of the loss of one of your twins...

As unbelieveable as it may seem...you will be happy and celebrate this pregnancy again...just give yourself time to grieve the loss of your baby...


(Boys' birthdays are backwards...lol)
~Thank you to claire1979 for my siggy~

Hi Aria, welcome to PAL! I'm so sorry for your losses, and agree with the other girls that it is perfectly normal to be scared, and no even know how to be happy at this point. You will get there, hun. You obviously will always mourn your losses, but you will get excited for this little one as you get further along. The ladies here are wonderfully supportive, and feel free to ask all the questions you need; we've all been PAL and understand, in here.

Again, Welcome!!

SORRY!!! The January Mystery Mom is me. I thought I was logged out of that account and back in as myself, evidently not! *giggle* It's a good thing my PR already figured out it was me.
