I experienced my first loss in Nov 2001... so since May 28, 2002 (EDD of my first angel) all of my pregnancy related anniversaries have been upsetting, and have caused me to grieve (often severely, in the first couple of years)

I then experienced my second loss in Nov 2005... more grieving to do, more upsetting anniversaries..

But now, for the first time in 5 years, pregnancy related anniversaries are something for me to *celebrate*. I can SMILE when I remember the day Gaby was conceived. I can SMILE when I remember the day I got my BFP... I can SMILE when I remember Gaby's EDD (and the fact she decided to come 14 days late!)...... I have a BIRTHDAY to celebrate this year, not an EDD to mourn over.... and unlike my two previous pregnancys - I don't have a LOSS DATE to remember..... I have a BIRTHDATE........

.. it feels kinda weird, obviously in a nice way!

I can't wait to have a birthdate to celebrate! It must be so exciting to watch her grow and learn and develop!
