Hi ladies. I introduced myself here a little while back. I am Hannah. I lost my sweet baby in Feb. of 2009. He was born after a very complicated pregnancy and lived for 13 hours. After my loss I was very determined to become pregnant again. It took about 7 months. I was due on June 18, 2010. Baby Hayden had some different plans and was born this past Tuesday. He is absolutely adorable. He is a little small. He was born weighing 5 lbs 1 oz. We are still in the hospital because he is dropping too much weight. Yesterday he was down to 4 1/2. While everything is going great, there was one thing that I didn't expect. Baby Hayden looks identical to his brother that we had lost. I can't get over how similar the two look. I love Hayden and I love to sit and stare at him, but it is a little hard because of the resemblance. I was just wondering if anyone else has experienced this.

Hannah we are in the same ddc (I'm due the 14th, being induced on the 6th) . I wanted to congratulate you on your new little one.

Obviously I haven't yet experienced what you are as our baby isn't here yet...but her 3d ultrasound pics look exactly like Joey, or at least more like Joey than our ds1 Jamie. I often wonder about the situation you are describing and that was one of the reasons I was so glad we were expecting a girl because it would be easier to separate the two babies in my mind.

Anyway, sorry i don't have any advice...but congratulations and *hugs* for what you are going through.

Yes. Yesyesyesyesyes.

This is Cora:

This is Erin

I loved staring at Erin but sometimes it just hurt. Sometimes I still look at her and wonder.

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

Congrats on the birth of Hayden!!

And to answer your question, yes! When she was born, Rachel looked exactly like Katrina. I actually started crying at the hospital about it because the resemblance was so strong. It actually made my heart extremely happy because I truly believe Katrina played a major part in getting Rachel to us healthy and alive. So I would just stare at Rachel for hours on end (still do) and I saw my beautiful healthy girl and I also saw the one I never got to bring home in her.
