tayysweetheart On February 24, 2014 I found out I was pregnant. In May we found out it was a boy. On October 25,2014 I gave birth to the most amazing boy I've ever laid eyes on. Elliott Theodore Santalla, he was 7lbs 6.2oz and was 19 3/4 inches long. 48 hours after he was born he had to have light treatment for jaundice so I barely got to see him, and I thought that was bad. Elliott was a wonderful baby. Rarely cried, could sit up at 2 months, was able to hold his head up since birth, and was already cutting his first tooth. On January 15, 2015 me and @jtheo_dore woke up to the unthinkable. Our perfect baby boy, laying face down in his playpen without a heartbeat or breath. Elliott hated laying on his back. He always laid on his stomach. There's no words to describe what the loss of a child feels like. There's a hole in ou 2h
  •   tayysweetheart R hearts that will never be filled. Justin and I have been out of work for 2 weeks now so we are behind on bills and having something so unexpected happen has also given us some memorial expenses for Elliott we need to cover. If you or anyone you know could donate to our gofundme page we would be so grateful. #sids #fucksids #gofundme #2months #baby #infant #pregnant #elliott #donate #loss #broken 2h
  •   kaitlinfayee I am so sorry :( It hurt to read this, to see someone going through what my family went through. The situations are all too similar...if you ever want to talk to someone, which you probably don't want to right now but down along the road you could always talk to my sister. She went through the same exact thing. I have been praying for you and Justin. May you find some comfort! ♡♡♡ 1h

miscarriage_pregnancyloss Story from @shaybaybay2014 . I found out I was pregnant in March at 7 weeks. My boyfriend was excited ad I was excited and nervous at the same time. At 6 months I found out I was having a boy and he also found out he had a birth defect called Anencephaly. I wanted a boy but was also so heart broken at the fact that he would pass way shortly after birth. I decided before knowing I was pregnant that I would name him Aiden Anthony. He was the greatest love I could ever feel for someone. When I'd go to the doctor and they would look for his heartbeat he would be stubborn and make them catch him and when they'd find him he'd keep them. I went to the Doctor on the 21st of Nov. his heartbeat was strong just like it always had been. Went back again on Monday the 24th. I didn't know that would be the last time I would hear his heartbeat. Tuesday through Friday I didn't feel him move. I thought it was because of his birth defect or something. Friday afternoon my boyfriend's sister took my boyfriend and I to the hospital. My son who I feel so much in love with had no heart beat. I've never felt so much pain in my 20 years of life. November 29 I gave birth to my stillborn son at 36 weeks and 5 days. I was happy yet so broken. I hope and prey that God or who every you believe in give all of us strength. #AngelBaby #MyBabyHasWings #AngelMommy #Miscarriage #InfantLoss #GrievingMother #SIDS #AngelDads #PregnancyLoss #EarthMommy #ForeverOurBaby #StillBorn #SleepingAngel #Support #StayStrong #RainbowBaby #TTC #TTCrainbow #BabyLoss #Miscarriage #EarlyMiscarriage #AngelBabies #HeavensAngels #AngelMomsStickTogether #MissYou #Heartbreak #MissMyBaby 6h

mymissbliss Today 3 years ago we buried my mother's ashes. I remember the people filling the church to the brim. I remember meeting people I hadn't seen in many many years. It was a strange thing, surreal to be here, surrounded by all my parents' friends and some of mine who turned up... I remember it like through fog, the days before the funeral, the weeks after... It seems like she went away on a holiday. She visited me in many dreams for the 6 months that followed. She explained her decision to leave and showed me where she was. This all seems so far away now. I am in a different place, able to reflect with gratitude and understanding, and, at the same time, missing her physical presence Rest in Peace star woman Find ways for healthy grieving 7h

mymissbliss Today I met a mother with a child when sledding. She seems noticeably frightened for her child, making sure he was far away from any sort of possible danger. I wondered... Later, our kids sled down the hill together and the topic lead to me saying: "I don't know what the mothering experience would look and feel like without loss." Upon a bit more information she shared that "This has happened to us, our child died." It reminded me that we really know nothing about the background of a person and the reasons why they act the way they do.
Be compassionate.
Be mindful.
Don't assume.
Share yourself because the world needs to know your story of healing. Find healthy ways of grieving

mommakim8 10 horrible weeks . I miss these sweet ears. And the beautiful hair.
I'd give anything to rub his sweet fuzzy head.. If only for a few minutes. Then I can give him back just give me a few minutes. #Jonah #SIDS #twins

miscarriage_pregnancyloss Received this message from @saandydf today. I posted her story a few weeks back. ~~~~Hi I'm just asking this because it's so important to me. I've had six miscarriages and one failed IVF cycle. I've had an epileptic seizure, operations, tons of ultrasounds but one beautiful daughter along the way.

I have a genetic balanced translocation with a very high risk to miscarry as the fetus might get severe diseases and abnormalities. We don’t know the exact % but in general they say that around 90% of the embryos inherit a genetic variation of my translocation which leads to death. My son that died was born in week 17 - he had multiple health issues.

I want to change some things in life - one of them is to spread awareness about miscarriages and support women out there. If you would like to help me I would be so happy and thankful.

Love, Sandra from Sweden
