Hi I’m new to this but I experienced infant loss back in March 13th 2018 . My daughter passed away . I was only 22 weeks pregnant with her . She was supposed to come July 13th,2018. I wasn’t trying to get pregnant again right away but than I had my rainbow baby. I didn’t want to know the sex of him or her until I was passed my week after I found out my daughter passed. So the doctors kept changing due dates. Once they said October 4th ,2019 than October 1st, 2019 . I eventually gave birth to my rainbow son September 24th, 2019 . Let me tell y’all he is the light of our world. He loves the wheels on the bus, counting and just being himself. I wouldn’t have it any other way . I love my child and I’m so grateful to God for giving me a second chance to be a mom .
Fast forward this year some time around March of this year I found out I was pregnant. I didn’t tell any one but my husband and mom . I thought my son would have a sibling to play with but I had my first miscarriage. I know y’all thinking well didn’t you have a loss back in 2018 yes but she was a still birth . My daughter came early.
I don’t know about y’all but I often wonder what my kids that I didn’t know look like .
Thanks for letting me share my story.
Hi, Thank you for sharing your story and I'msorry that you had to experience loss, it is not a good feeling. Today I read your blog and it gave me a bit of hope knowing that I too may have a chance of a rainbow baby. My daughter was born at 29wks 3days September 3, 2021 due to PPROM (which the drs still don't know the cause) later died on September 7 2021. This is the ultimate pain i think I'll ever face. However, with that I don't think anything would ever be as painful as this in the future (well I am definitely hoping). I don't know what I would do if I ever lose another child.
