De-Lurk yourselves

The other night, our neighbors were sitting in our dining room with us, and I mentioned my blog. My neighbor didn't understand WHO would ever read a blog, and don't I worry about strangers??
NZ explained to him that he reads my blog all the time, but is not a follower, and I am sure there are many more lurkers out there who have either found themselves in my blog, or just know me from real life.

My reason for blogging began last January when we found out we were expecting a baby. I started the blog so I could document the excitement I felt after having miscarried a baby the year before. The purpose of my blog was so that I had something to go back and read after my baby was born, and so that my family near and far could share in the excitement with us.

May 18, 2009 changed the purpose of my blog. This was the day that I learned I would be delivering our little girl 16 weeks early, and that she would not be alive when we met.

Being able to blog has helped me trudge through the emotions, which don't always make sense. I found many other babyloss mom's through their blogs, and reading how they are dealing with their respective losses, has helped me feel so not alone. My goal for this blog now, is to show how life goes on, despite loss, but beware:there is a smattering of whoa-is-me posts when the hard days hit.

So, if you're a lurker, I'd like to say hello and encourage you to say hi and introduce yourself! Happy De-Lurking Week!


  1. I'm a new follower, but we knew each other from O2 a long time ago and just recently found your blog!

  2. I'm not a lurker...not on your blog anyway!
    I'm one of your #1 fans...your big sister...aka Baby Z's auntie!
    Love you sis!

  3. I am your Mah, aka Baby Z's grandma. Someday I will meet her. You are very good in expressing yourself and I pray that you have helped others out there who have suffered a loss like yours. It takes time to get over and the amount of time varies for each person. We are all unique.

  4. I am a follower of your blog and also a mother who lost their first baby. I enjoy reading your posts and knowing that I am not alone. I can relate to so much that you write about. Thank you for putting your feelings out there! I believe that we will be moms again to a live screaming baby!
