I just wanted to post and say I read the stories of all the angels here, and I greatly admire all of you who have been through such a sad time. You are the bravest people I can imagine.

Firstly i want to say that i am sorry for all your losses. I am sure that all our babies are watching over us from heaven.

I fell pregnant in Aug 08 and couldn't ever shake this horrible feeling about my pregnancy. I had a few early bleeds in the pregnancy but managed to make it to 16wks when my ob gave me an ultrasound and confirmed everything was going great guns. A week later i still couldn't shake that horrible feeling and told my DH that i didn't feel we were going to get our baby at the end of this.
In Dec 08 we went for our 18-20wk ultrasound and were given the bad news that our little baby had chromosomal anomalies as well as a cystic hygroma, a dilated cerebral ventricle and fetal hydrops. We had to make the heartbreaking decision to terminate our pregnancy. Our little baby was born 2 days later on the 17th Dec 08 at 19.4wks. We were unable to find out the sex of our baby due to severe swelling but decided to name our baby Charlie and always believed it was a gir.
10wks later we got our chromosomal results back and learned that Charlie had Turner's Syndrome and was infact a little girl.

My heart is still breaking but i know that my little girl is somewhere more beautiful then i could ever imagine.
Fly free Charlie baby.

I have just read all the tributes to babies/children that asre now angels and how wonderful that these beautiful babies are remembered.

I have an angel baby, I call him "Nathan Daniel", he was due to be born 12 April 1985 with his twin brother "Brenton Eugene" but he became an angel in Nov 1985. Brenton is now 24 and due to be married soon and I think of what my "Nathan Daniel" might be doing if God had not decided he needed a special angel.

Love to all the mothers, fathers, brothers, sisters and grandparents that have missed out on giving love to the special little ones

I'd like to add my beautiful son Luke, born 3rd Dec 08 and died on the 12th May 09 aged 5 months.

Luke taught us the joy of relishing all the small things, and that sometimes love really is enough! Luke had Trisomy 13, so we knew he wouldnt be here a long time. So we made the most of every second. We never wished away a moment of Luke's life, and never grumbled about a middle of the night feed. He was indeed the light of our lives, and is dearly missed.

Dearest Lukey- we only held you in our arms for such a short time- but we'll hold you in our heart forever :-)

I've no idea how I missed this, Lys.  I can't tell you how sorry I am that you've lost Luke, I can't imagine your grief.

I don't know what else to say, but that I'm sorry. :-(

How are you travelling now, a few months on? I know it can be hard after a little while when everyone goes back to 'normal', because that normal will never exist for you again.

Do you still have support?

I would like to add my first born Ryan.
He was born at 24+4 weeks, and was with us for 3 short, but beautiful days.

We miss you so much, you have changed our lives forever.

This thread is heartbreaking. I've seen it pinned for a long time but didn't have to strength to come in and read it.

I am ready to add my little girl:

I would like to send my love to all the women here and their lost precious babies.

I think about you all, my 5 lost babies, everyday. Each one of you are so important to me. I imagine what I would be doing with you all now, how your daddy and I would just show you all off and gloat about how wonderful and precious you are.

Love always,

Your mummy.
