Today is my angels EDD

So today was my EDD from our loss on March 26th this year.
(religion mentioned/babies mentioned)
My dh and I decided to request todays mass awhile back since it happened to fall on a Sunday. We submitted our request as a "special intention" mass. I thought it was interesting that during the homily the priest started talking about babies and one of the first things he said was how a child has an eternal soul from the moment of conception. To be honest - I can't remember the majority of the rest of the homily but when he said that I felt a sense of peace during mass. It's not as though he knew why we requested it so it just amazes me the timing of his words, you know?

Anyways, I haven't posted here in a little bit. Made a quick post on Oct 15th but other than that I haven't really been around so I hope it is okay I posted here today.

(PREG MENT) In Sept I found out I am pregnant again and I've been taking it one day at a time. I still haven't joined the May BB but have been posting on Pregnant after a loss.

Sending hugs and strength to everyone. Thank you for letting me share a little bit with you today.

I know what you mean about finding comfort from knowing the baby has an eternal soul. I just left the May bb they are great when you decide to join them. I pray you have peace during this preg as well.

pg ment

My EDD was in September, and even though I was and currently pg., it was very hard. It didn't sneak up on me, I was counting down the days for months. I understand your reluctance for joining your BB. I would lurk, but didn't post until I was safely in the second trimester.

Sending sticky bean vibes, and HH9M vibes!!!!!!!!!

I'm so glad you have found some peace and that you were comforted by your priests words.

Congratulations on becoming pregnant again, eluctance to join a BB sounds very common, I know I will be weary when the time comes for me again as well.
