Thank you & Amazing K

Thank you so much for all of your amazing support! I can not tell you how much it means to me to have others remembering Myles with us. We survived the one year anniversary of Myles's death and are now remembering the days leading up to the day we buried him. At this time last year I was planning my son's memorial and burial service and quite honestly I don't remember much of it. I do remember that I cried very little during this week because I was in complete shock. Furthermore, I was so focused on having the perfect memorial service for Myles that I spent hours preparing for it. I figured that I'd never plan a birthday party or any other party for him, so I had to do this one thing right. I didn't want to have any regrets and honestly I don't have any. The memorial service and burial were a great tribute to Mr. Myles. I will post pictures from both services this weekend.

UPDATE ON K & THE PREGNANCY ...

All is well with K. Today she is 5wks 5days pregnant. She's feeling very pregnant too ... super tired (ready for bed by 7pm) , hungry all the time, sore/swollen boobs, and lower abdomen twinges. She hasn't had any spotting or m/s (she didn't have m/s with her boys either). K's boys have been reading to the baby(ies) in the evening. K said that her oldest son (7) rested his hand on her belly while he read to our little one(s). So cute! When K tells me about the things her boys do and say it always makes me smile. K's boys are wonderful little guys with big hearts and melting smiles! With a mommy like K it's a no-brainer that her kids are terrific!

Our 1st u/s is on Monday, February 23 (not Jan. 23 like I said in one of my previous posts, but I'm sure you figured that out), and it can't get here soon enough! I'm anxious, excited, and nervous. I have been trying to not worry about the bad possibilities and focus on the positives. Please keep praying for our little one(s)!

Thinking of your family during this hard time, and thank you for sharing your story. I'm sure the memorial you planned was beautiful. By the way, I love the name Myles and it is obvious he continues to be so loved by his family and many others.

Wishing happy thought for K's cooking bun (s)!

for the last couple of years I have felt myself sinking into loneliness and these last couple of weeks reading your stories and telling you mine has really been cool...

Stumbled upon your blog today for the first time. I am not a baby loss mama, but am a infertile recurrent miscarrier with very thin lining who is considering GS with a close friend sometime in the future. I will read with interest. Congratulations!
