Anyway I read your post about your precious Zee. I too had a partial molar pregnancy In January 2007. I went in for my check up at 11 weeks which they couold not find a heartbeat and determined I had a miscarriage. After dealing with the miscarraige and deciding we would try again after the D&C. That was when they determined the partial molar pregnancy which I had no clue what it was or have ever heard of it. Then we were told not to try again and monitor my HCG level monthly for at least 6- 9 months. That was hard. And until now have not heard of anyone else with the same condition. So thank you for sharing your story, it is very touching.

I am happy to say that as soon as we had the "ok" 9months later, we got pregnant with my son Caden who is now 14 months old!

A couple other suggestions I have would be to: 1) mark that baby’s birthdate on your calendar and send a “Thinking of you” card to the mom on that special day. People forget, but mom’s never do. It meant a lot to me that some in my family remembered my son’s birthday even though he is no longer here. It was a very hard day for me. 2) Help the mom make that baby’s baby book if she has one or wants one. My mother-in-law helped me finish scrapbooking my son’s baby book with all his little pictures and it was such a bonding experience for us. I am so grateful for her help. 3) And for immediately after birth, take some food to the family, just as you would if they had a newborn in the house. A grieving parent is not thinking of dinners or nutrition, so arrange a nutritious meal for them. It will be appreciated more than you (and them) will every know.

My friend was feeling distraught and didn’t know what to do so I recalled your post and sent her the link, she said that it helped. I just want to thank you for sharing and to let you know that you are helping others. Hugs to you.

Thank you to Mrs. Dub for sharing this. As a mom who has lost an infant, I can relate to everything you said, word for word. I loved your advice to people who don’t know what to do or say. Until I went through it, I was in that category. There is never an exact right thing to say or do, but just being there and loving them is the best way to start.

I lost my 2 year old to cancer last summer and often thought of writing a book of all the things you shouldn’t do (because I experienced them all). I just never knew how to say it without offending everyone. You did a wonderful job. God bless you in this time of mourning. I find for me the more I talk about my daughter the closer she is to me. I never want to forget a second. Thnaks again.

Thank you so much for your words…your comfort. After having a molar pregnancy myself (darn those blood draws every week!!!), followed by 2 miscarriages, I still feel grateful. I cannot imagine having to go through what you did, but it helps so many people for you to talk about it. Your writing is so eloquent and is solace for women needing a little something to boost their spirits and give them courage to “make it” through the rough days of remembering.

Your posts gave me a good, hearty cry (I can identify with you on this, to some extent…) I am in awe of and inspired by your strength.

I have lost a baby and had a 25 week survivor. Our baby that left this earth was only 12 weeks along but I still think of them often.

My little survivor was only given a 5% chance of survival when he was born. We were in intensive care for months and saw so many families suffer the loss of their little ones just after birth and a woman I became close to while we were both waiting for our ill babies to be born lost her baby a week after mine was born. One friend I was in intensive care with lost her little girl after 3 months. It is such a sad time and I agree that lots of hugs are required to get through that terrible time. Thank you for sharing your story.

As someone who has lost several little ones to miscarriage, everything you wrote resonates with me. Thank you for drawing attention to this and helping so many people who haven’t experienced it know how to be supportive and helpful. Thanks for sharing baby Zee’s story – she’s touched so many people through your telling it.

I send lots of warm hugs and thoughts your way (even though I don’t know you!!) Our son, who is two now, arrived 10 weeks premature. Each parent has their own mission here on earth I believe – and I’m so glad you were able to share your story with the world! thank you :) hugs-

He was 38 weeks and lived for 2 hrs and 17 mins. after he was born. I completely related to your experience. One thing that has been very helpful to me is the little things that people have done. Sending a card, dropping off cookies, telling me they were praying for me. Before this I never knew how much the little things help. I made a matching braclet for both me and my baby. Actually I have found some therapy in making jewelry as I have been recovering. http://princessbeads.blogspot.com/

I read through the whole article and didn’t notice who had written it until I was about to leave the site. I recently moved to UT and prior to that was in the same congregation in IL as Laura. She is amazing and was really strong through everything. I am so glad that she shared her story with others and showed how we could support others in similar situations.
