I actually got one worse yesterday: a friend had offered to come over and visit and play with my 4 year old DS. Then she called and backed out because she was too busy washing baby clothes for her granddaughter who had just had a baby. I don't think she's my friend anymore.

I am so sorry for your loss. And I hope you find people surrounding you who can offer more care and support. You certainly seem to have had your share of insensitive/thoughtless folks around you, which is not what you need.

I am so sorry to hear of both of your losses...and so sorry to have been so absent while this was going on. We haven't had internet access at our new home, and I missed your first post about the first baby.

 

Please know that you are in our thoughts and prayers - I wish there was something more helpful I could say. We will be holding you and your babies in the light.

Oh No! OMG. I'm so sorry. I'm crying for you. I can't even imagine the pain you are feeling but I'm sorry you are having to go through the loss of both of your babies, not to mention your two previous babies that you've lost. My heart aches for you. How devastating. You'll be in my heart. Heal gently, Mama. May the Light be with you and comfort you. Long, comforting hugs from me to you.

Thank you all for the thoughts, prayers, and support. The preliminary signs look like the first baby died from toxoplasmosis (parasite common in cat poop and contaminated soil). It is so devastating...I never had any contact with cats and observed every possible precaution for pregnant women. The fact that we lost both babies due to such a rare occurence on top of 10 years of infertility journeys...it's just unbelievable. I feel like we're the unluckiest people in the universe!

 

Anyway, I wish the best to all of you and your pregnancies.

bstandlee, I'm still so sorry. Toxoplasmosis? It seems so cruel. I hope that you can take of yourself and know that you did everything right.

Lots of hugs and prayers
