no. 543 – Today

…October 15, 2007…

National Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day

I didn’t need the U.S. House of Rep to set aside one day of the year to remember the pregnancies I have lost, but they did, and today is that day. So while I think about what could have been almost every waking moment, I will also take advantage of this day and remind you.

November 11, 2004 – Vivienne Elise, miscarriage 15 weeks

January 10, 2006 – Miscarriage 5 weeks 4 days

November 14, 2006 – "Wolf", miscarriage 8 weeks 2 days

June 5, 2007 – Miscarriage 5 weeks 3 days

  1. I too am thinking of you and lit a candle. I actually still have “November Rain” on my iPod playlist when driving home from work, and every time that song comes up I am thinking of you. I hope this November will be different.

  2. I know you feel that pain every moment of everyday – for that I am sorry. All stacked up there, your loss “stats” break my heart.

    I too will think about all our losses today. Sometimes I find myself wanting to live my life that could have been worse than other times….perhaps buring a candle will help us get over that pain, perhaps not.

    Hopefully setting aside a day is the start of the process to increase insurance coverage???

  3. SO today’s the day that I’m meant to be officially sad about persistant un-babyness by virtue of non-viability?

    I’m glad that US government cleared that one up for me, I’ve been doing it all wrong it would seem. 🙂

    DD, I am so sorry for your losses.
