the one I was hoping not to write

I was hoping I wouldn't have to write this post- and I guess I don't seeing that I never announced my pregnancy in the first place -no one would know the difference- but in any case I have decided to write a short something- for me, and maybe for those women who sometimes feel like they are alone. I had been planning a post to tell everyone I was 12 weeks pregnant. Unfortunately, that post won't be coming.




I am sad to say that this past week I started to have complication with my pregnancy at 7 weeks. I won't go into details but after numerous evasive tests in E.R and in my Ob's office it was decided that the pregnancy had stopped progressing at around 5 weeks. It just wasn't meant to be for us at this time.



Thankfully I have the most amazing family and friends- who have all been there for me over the past few days.



and I also have my E




who makes me smile endlessly and is a constant reminder of how blessed I already am!

* Thank you to everyone for your support. This is our second angel baby. We lost our first on Thanksgiving Day 2006. We are all doing well and appreciate your kind words and support through this difficult time.

Oh Danielle - I am so sorry. I am thinking of you and here for you also.
You are very blessed with little E!!! She is a doll! But I know it must still be hard to go through what you are.
My thoughts are with you all.

big hugs. It is a tough thing to go through, but just know that your baby will always be a part of you. I lost my first angel when I was almost 2 months pregnant... it will get easier to deal with over time. take the time to morn the loss and realize that it is God who decided you are ready to have another baby, but just not this one. if you look at my post on Oct. 15th there is a poem I wrote about my angel

Rose said...

I can't imagine how you are feeling, but you've been in my thoughts since I found out. It will get better, and when it's meant to be you'll have another beautiful, perfect angel, just like E. You know how to find me when you need me. (I can always whip up some more "fresh tortilla" for you :o) ) *Big hug*

I am so sorry! (((Big HUGS))) I wish there was more then words that I could offer to you- but just know that I will be praying for you. My friend had the same thing happen to two years ago- the good news- she now has a beautiful, healthy, wonderful 6 month old. She went on to have a perfect pregnancy after she took the time to mourn and grieve the little one she never got to know. I am glad you have so many wonderful family memebers and friends to help you during this time.

I'm so sorry Danielle. I'll be thinking and praying for you and your family. Every time you feel down, depressed, or alone- Just take a look at Eliza. She can cheer you up any day.
When the time is right, you'll have a prefect healthy baby.

I'm so sorry Danielle...how disappointing. Disappointing probably doesn't even really begin to describe how you feel...wish I could come give you a big hug! You are right though with the fact that you are blessed with that beautiful baby girl you've got already! :)

I am so sorry to hear this. Having a miscarriage has to be one of the hardest things because you never know "why"?
I had a loss 2 years ago and some days its easy some days its not.
Thinking of you during this time!
