I'm Kathryn. I live in CT with my husband Tom and my 5yr old Jamie (who starts Kindergarten this week!!!). Our son Joey was silently born on April 4, 2009 at 9:16 am...40w2d due to a nuchal cord accident. He passed away on his due date. I feel like nobody will every understand (except you ladies) that I still think of him every minute of every day and I will for the rest of my life. I am so glad to have found justmommies.

I enjoy playing 5yr old games; transformers; reading bedtime stories...oh yeah, also playing violin, reading grown up stories lol, and relaxing with my husband.
Married to my best friend Tom since 2004 (together since 1999)

Joey ~ 4-4-09 ~ born sleeping ~ held under my heart for 40wk1d, in my arms for just 6 short hours but he will be in my heart forever
And finally holding my little girl,Felicity Rose, Born into Daddy's loving hands on June 9, 2010

I'm Bonnie, 24 and live with my husband in Pennsylvania (USA). Our son Roald was born still on November 15, 2008 at 25 weeks due to cord constriction because he had a lean cord with a severe Wharton's jelly deficiency.

Besides Roald our first pregnancy was lost to early miscarriage and I am currently in my early third trimester with a daughter due in November.

I love cooking (especially baking), old music, reading, true crime.
Visit Terry & Roald's Memorial Site!

Thanks to Mommy2Belle for my Roald blinkie!

I'm Brittany. I'm currently transplanted in Atlanta while my husband is deployed to Afghanistan. We're stationed in Eastern NC, but I can't stand it there and would go nuts if I stayed there when I have other options. He returns for good in May sometime.

We have two girls, Grace will by 5 in December and Evangeline (Evey) turns 3 in November. Our son Duncan was due to be our next December baby, but he was born sleeping at 35 weeks on November 14 of last year. He had Down Syndrome and passed away due to his severe heart and lung anomalies.

We're expecting our son Grayson in December. DH will be arriving for R&R just days before my 'due date.' Hopefully this experience will be a happy ending.

As for hobbies, reading, debating, shopping, watching movies, researching/studying, photography (35mm B&W is my favorite), and spending time with my family.

I'm Natalie. I live in Massachusetts with my hubby, Denis.

We lost our first child, Devin, at 35 weeks 5 days due to a really rare occurrence of amniotic band syndrome that cinched his umbilical cord shut. He was born March 6, 2008.

Devin was an IVF baby. Early 2009 I got pregnant from another IVF cycle, but it turned out to be ectopic and I had my right tube removed. I'm currently going through IVF again (in the middle of a cycle) in another attempt to get pregnant.

Hobbies? I don't know if I have hobbies. Right now they involve early morning ultrasounds and stressing out... and watching a lot of HGTV.

2 IVF babies and 1 surprise!

My name is Rebecca, 29, married to Dan, also 29. OUr son Ethan was stillborn February 10, 2009. He had no amniotic fluid because he had severe birth defects caused by my diabetes - nobody realized I was diabetic. We are TTC our second.

Thank you Vicki for my awesome siggy!!

Hello friends and new members ~

I'm Barb, a hot 30-something year old mama to twins Julia, my Angel on Earth and Noah, my Angel in Heaven. I'm originally from CT but transplanted to TX since the beginning of 2007 due to DH's job transfer. We battled various infertility treatments for 5 years until we were finally successful after a 3rd round of IUI.

Noah passed away sometime between 29 and 32 weeks gestation (various anomalies noted on the autopsy report but ultimately, those were caused by a cord accident) and was born sleeping on July 22, 2008 @ 10:41 a.m. Because Julia was forced to be born 8 weeks early, she spent 4 weeks in NICU and battled two intestinal infections. This emotional roller coaster is something I would not wish on my worst enemy, but am thankful that this tragic circumstance has brought me to such a group of wonderfully strong women.

I am now a firm believer in miracles as DH and I are expecting a girl --- conceived totally au naturale --- on December 19, 2009.

My hobbies include hanging w/ my DH and Julia, exploring any and all parts of our new home-state, cooking (LOVE to cook), gardening (which I'll get back to as soon as I have a non-pregnant moment), visiting with friends, reading (when I have a moment to finish a sentence), and collecting tattoos

Thank you to Jaidynsmum for my beautiful siggie!

I'm Barb, Mom to Angel on Earth Julia Rose (7*22*08), her twin brother Angel in Heaven Noah (7*22*08), and rainbow baby Sydney Noelle (12*4*09).

*a special 'thank you' to all the blinkie creators for their talents*

I'm Laurie (31), married to Andy (38) and we live in Ontario Canada. We have a 4 (almost 5 ) year old son named Connor. Our daughter, Evangeline Grace, was born still June 26, 2008 at 24 weeks due to unknown causes. I got pregnant in October, but didn't know until I was almost 7 weeks along. It was ectopic and I ruptured on December 15. I lost one tube and one ovary. I got pregnant again in March of this year and our son, Declan Andrew, was born still at 25 weeks on August 24, 2009, We are waiting on the autopsy results.

My name is Mandi and I live in Southern California (about 20 minutes from Disneyland) We have annual passes!

I have been married to my DH for almost 11 years now. We have been dating since we where in high school so we have been together for over 17 years! Wowzers!

We have 3 children and 1 angel. A 10 year old daughter named Tyler, a 6 year old daughter named Carson, and a son named Riley who just turned 5. Brady was our last child born sleeping at 20 weeks and 1 day. We don't know the cause of his death but the doctor said it was most likely a chromosome problem.

This is the 1st year all 3 kids are in school and I am finding I have too much time on my hands! Hubby keeps telling me to get a job now.

My hobbies are my kids, camping, Disneyland, swimming, scrapbooking, ebay, shopping and anything crafty.

It's great to get to know everyone a little better!

Hi everyone!

I'm Jessica, wife to Rob. We live in the Poconos, Pennsylvania. We have one baby, Robert, who was stillborn at 35 weeks on December 17, 2008, due to what is suspected to have been an umbilical cord accident. We are currently pregnant with a little girl, Madylyn, who is due December 25, 2009.

My hobbies currently include taking care of the 4 month old puppy we bought that is a huge disaster. She has a congenital problem that is costing us a fortune and making me stress more then I thought possible. If I had free time, I would really like to enjoy cooking and baking, which is my favorite thing to do. But I am SOOO looking forward to fall and all the baking I do when the weather turns cooler!
*A HUGE thank you to Maitri for my beautiful siggy!

Hi, I am Meghan. I am 32 and a member of the military, I work as a physical therapy assistant. I live with my family in NJ.

My husband David and I have 5 children. Patrick (10), Michael (6), Caroleigh(4), Evangeline (16 months) and out little Saint Colm. He was born still on May 13, 2009 at 24 weeks gestation. They think he had been dead for about a week because of his size, but I know he was measuring a week behind at his 'big' US. I know he was gone a few days, but the autopsy listed him as being 22 weeks, which I know he was not gone for 2 weeks. Anyway, he like Roald had a lean cord. I am believing that is what caused his death, but the autopsy was non conlusive.

When they persisted in questioning him, he straightened up and said to them, "Let the person among you who is without sin be the first to throw a stone at her." John 8:7

We are currently waiting on test results (blood work and amnio) and the results of the autopsy to determine why he passed away and how likely it is to happen again with future pregnancies.
