Pregnancy loss /Infertility blogs I like to read

« The way we were | Main | Working blues »

January 06, 2008



We just got back into town and I was thinking on the way home that tomorrow was your first day back. :( I will be thinking of you and sending you strength! P.S. I raised 2 lambs named "Pancho" and "Lefty" and heard the song twice during our trip to Houston this week. ;)


I hope tomorrow is a good day. Don't stop blogging. I will sure miss you if you do!


I made myself sit down & write in my journal to Sara on Friday. I hadn't written to her since 2 days before Christmas. It's hard to write to her, I feel like I'm repeating myself - how we miss her so much, how we should have a little girl toddling around the house, how this Thanksgiving, Christmas, whatever day is so different from the one last year & last year wasn't what we expected. But I promised myself that I would continue to write to her - so I can reflect on my growth & so Ethan can read it when he's old enough. She will continue to affect our life.

I'll be thinking of you tomorrow!


I hope you don't stop blogging. I enjoy reading blogs of women who are pregnant or have children. It gives me hope after loss.

I just went back to work last week and it wasn't easy at first, but then it felt good to be back in my "normal" routine. I'll be thinking of you. Good luck!

I can't speak for everyone else, but I would miss you if you stopped blogging. Start another one, that's just for Andy (just a suggestion) so you can celebrate his life through words and photos without upsetting any potential readers (if that's what you fear).I think this blog started out as you honoring and remembering Jimmy and it should return to that without guilt. You have been a model of strength for me and I'd hate to see you go.

Good luck tomorrow with the kiddos!

BTW, I thought you were going to Slatgrass?

I mean *Saltgrass*


I have days when I stay away from pregnancy and mommy blogs, but I also have days where I want a glimpse of the other side.

Good luck with the students!


Thinking about you as you go back to work. I find myself straddled between those lands as well...

hope work went well today.

and don't stop blogging, no, no, no!


Good luck at work!

I understand the straddling both worlds part. I sort of feel like I'm not a real mom, but I am also an imposter in the loss world. I guess we have a whole new role, we get to understand both worlds.


Hope your reentry into the world of paid employment is going smoothly.


HA! I just looked at my google analytics page and it referred someone to my blog who was searching for "how to get your god pregnant using a turkey baster" and my favorite one yet "ll bean registry"

BTW, how was school?

Well, I'd love to comment more, but I'm too busy laughing at "pregnancy after" Yeah, I think I've heard of that happening too!!


I hope your first week back is going well. Those hooligans had better be nice.

I'll bet you're counting the days until spring break.


I can't believe you have to go back to work already but on the other hand, I can't believe you could find infant care for $700 a month!
And, I'd miss you if you stopped blogging.
You're exactly where I want to be and sometimes it is hard to read about it.
But I just plain like you.

Hey girl...I hope you don't stop blogging because I enjoy your blog so much. You are funny as heck. You have the courage to say things that I only think. Also, just wanted to say thanks again for all of the comforting goodies and for the talk. I really appreciated being able to talk to someone who understands about loss. You are the best friend anyone could ask for. I really do want to get together sometime. Maybe Sunday morning for coffee??? Let me know. Good luck getting back to school. ~Hugs, jen


Please don't stop blogging- you give me hope that I can do this.

Hoping work is good to you...


$700/month? Texas is cheap.

I know what you mean - Samuel is only 4 weeks old and already I find myself struggling to find words. I'll miss you if you go though.


Monica, I'm am struggling with the same feelings. I miss my son so much, but I just can't bear to write about him right now.

After I lost Nate, I hunted for bloggers who had babies after a loss. It gave me a lot of hope. I hope that you'll keep writing...I know that I'm a lurker, but I love reading your blog. I think that if we lived closer, we'd probably be BFFs.

Thinking about you as you go back to work!


Thanks Laura, that's sweet! I love your blog too.


I just found your blog and I want you to stay. You give me hope. I had a stillbirth just one week ago. I really need to read about someone who has been through this and eventually achieved what my husband and I so badly want.



I'm sorry to hear about your loss. I'd love to talk to you more about it if you want to talk. You can e-mail me at



My mind is still all muddled but I want to say thank you. After I found your blog thru google, I ended up finding a whole community of bloggers and feel like I've found a little online support group.
