To begin, I would like to say I am sorry for the losses everyone has suffered

Is it ok for me to join here too? My angel was born on Nov. 9th, but I was only 19 weeks and 2 days along... I have read some of the posts and I am so sorry for those who lost their babies later in pg... I almost broke apart losing Daniel, I cannot even imagine it having happened later. God bless you ladies for your strength.

Thank you Katie (.:Shortcake:.) for my beautiful siggy!!

Of course you may join. The medical community defines stillbirth as being after 20 weeks but we pretty much welcome everyone. If you've delivered a sleeping baby, you know our pain.

My son Clark was born at 19w6d on July 10, 2008.

Thank you *Kiliki* for my perfect siggy Follow us on Facebook

Of course you can come and post with us!

I am so sorry for your loss. My son Colm was born May 13, 2009 at 24 weeks. We think it was a cord accident because of his cord being too thin where it entered his body.

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

I"m so sorry for the loss of your son Daniel. He is with my girls, Kayla & Kaitlin, identical twins, who I lost at 23 weeks on 11-9-08. I'm sorry you have to join this board. Please some around and vent, talk, scream, cry, whatever you need to get through. There is a ton of support here.

I'm so sorry for you loss. I lost my Elijah at 19 weeks too and over here he is classed as a late miscarriage. In my eyes though, I went through labor and delivery and he was born into my arms.

This is a great place to share feelings and get support.
Thank you Claire1979 for my beautiful siggy!

I agree with all the other ladies. If you feel like you belong here, then you're welcome.

I'm so sorry that Daniel isn't still with you. Like Dawna said, I'm sorry that you have to be here, but I'm glad you found us.

You are certainly welcome here. I agree that if you have labored and delivered your baby then you know the pain of stillbirth whether or not you hit the *magical* 20 week mark. I'm so sorry for the loss of your son Daniel.

My name is Elsa. I lost my daughter Lucy to a heart defect at 20.5 weeks 1/17/2010.

I have seen you on one of the other forums, to me it sucks no matter when our babies were taken from us. I have had my angels come at various gestational ages, but my oldest daughter Makenzie was born still at 38 weeks on May 18, 1997 due to heart stress.
