It is 3 years today since we lost our first little one, possibly the saddest day of my life, but we are currently lookin forward to one of the happiest as we prepare for the arrival of our little girl in around 11 weeks. If we hadn't lost our first little one then we wouldn't have had DS and now DD so we are very fortunate

praying for you during your time of grief... its so good that you can look at the bright side and the blessings in life. Losses give you a sense of clarity about what is truely a blessing.

I think tryingtobehopeful said it very, very well. Losses give us perspective. It's so painful to go through though. I am so happy for with regards to your beautiful son and your beautiful little girl (can't wait to see pics of her!!). I was so bummed because our 1st anniversary was on Friday and we completely forgot to even acknowledge it...it somehow felt disloyal to that baby. We have had a lot on our minds, granted, but I still feel bad for that little one. Is that terrible? What do the rest of you do to acknowledge the loss? Do you have any sort of ritual or ceremony? Or just talk about the loss together?

We only really acknowledged my due date, we got a bottle of champagne and a celeration cake to celebrate the life of our LO. For anniversaries of the loss and my due date it's just somethin we remember between ourselves, we don't do anythin special for it.
