Hi,

I lost my daughter Alivia on 10/28/02 at 38 weeks and 5 days. She was a beautiful 8 pound 15 ounce baby girl with a full head of curly black hair. My husband and I have no other children and were shocked that this could happen. It took us a few months to get the courage up but we are trying again. Last month my cycle was about average for me (25 days) but this month it was long (29) days. Of course, in those 4 extra days I got my hopes way up! Today I got my visit from AF and am so frustrated at having to start again! The time between ovulation and AF seems sooooo long. I can't stand the wait. I have lurked for awhile but thought I would say hello. Andrea

Welcome, Andrea. What a beautiful name you chose for your daughter! I'm so very sorry you lost your little girl.

I lost my first baby too. Her name was Olivia. My heart aches for you as I know the devastation you are feeling now. I am very glad you decided to come out and post on these boards.

I wish you a speedy trip to the Pregnant After Stillbirth Boards, but in the meantime, I know you'll find a home here.

Many hugs,

Jessie, mom to Olivia (b/s 9/15/01 @ 39 weeks) m/c 7/18/02 @ 5 weeks

Hi Andrea,

Welcome to the board and I am so sorry for your loss. I am glad to hear you are ttc again. The wait is terrible, I totally agree ... Well I hope you will find comfort here, and that your stay on this board is short.

Love

Welcome to the board Andrea. I am very sorry that you lost your beautiful daughter. Our baby girl was b/s last October as well - and like you she was our first - it is so tragic and sad. Yes, the 2 week wait is excrutiating! I am currently 7 DPO and it seems like forever. It is especially hard when af is late or when you think you are feeling pregnancy symptoms - only to have af show up after all. Good luck to you - I hope your stay here is short.
