For those of you who don't know me, I'm the proud mom of a rainbow baby. Max turned 2 today! I look back and thank God every day that he gave me my "caboose" (His brothers are 15, 13, and 10). When I joined JM, I joined as an older mom that was PG. Our PG was a complete surprise (still not sure how that happened ). But, after losing my mom 6 months prior to finding out I was PG, I was so excited to be celebrating a new life. I figured this was the light at the end of a very dark tunnel.
I started to miscarry in Disney World. When we got back, there was no hb. We were all devastated.
I had to tell my DDC it was over. And, many in my DDC had also had MCs.
I came back to JM a few months later, in hopes that DH would say OK to trying again. (He was hesitant. I hemorrhaged with my loss. I was losing consciousness in the car on the way to the hospital.) I met so many wonderful women in TTCAL. I hated leaving them when I got my BFP.
My PG was soooo stressful. I was always scared that I'd have another loss. This was my last chance. I was 42!
But, Max was born two years ago today.
I am thinking of you all today. I lit my prayer candle for all of the TTCAL and Pregnant after a Loss mommies today. I wish you all well and send bfp dust, sticky dust, hb dust...whatever you need.
I hope to be back on JM more. I miss everyone.

Stay positive. You have tons of prayers out there.
Kelty---Mom of 4 boys!

I you so much Kelty!! Max is truly a miracle and I feel particularly blessed to have been able to know you through that entire journey from anxiously POASs in TTCAL to him being born in PAL.

So good to have you back & definitely don't be a stranger here...you were such an amazing cheerleader for me during my pregnancy and all these lovely ladies would benefit so much from having you around

and holy crud Max is 2 (!!!) which means Savannah's almost 2 (!!!!!!) - our babies aren't BABIES anymore

Savannah Stylin!

Hi Kelty! I have seen you around JM and want to say your post is awesome! I, too am 42 and pregnant with our rainbow baby. My boys are older at ages 20, 19, and 16. How is it being an older mom all over again? I am looking forward to it!

I love hearing about success stories. They gave me hope when we were trying for our rainbow baby. She's healthy and growing.
