I think of the rainbow babes like this... the rainbow after the storm of sorrow. We are suffering through the storm of sorrow when the universe lets up on the storm and we get a reprise in our sorrow, there is a RAINBOW. They do not "undo" or erase the storm they just make the enduring the storm a little more hopeful. Chris~ Mommy to ^Lucy^ & Danger

My Life-Saver

This little device is such lifesaver for me right now. Anytime I get the slightest panic or a full on "freak out" I just lay down, find the baby's heartbeat and marvel at the sound. It is truly the best sound in the world right now!! Thank you my dear Liesel for allowing me to borrow this wonderful Doppler!! Its giving me some peace of mind and calm when not much else is. So there's that. Still taking it one day at a time!!

On another note a fellow deadbaby mama had her daughter by emergency c-sec on Sunday @ 29 wks. She noticed a decrease in kicks (as she was regularly doing her kick counts) and went to the hospital.. this is what saved her precious little girl. Kick counts are SO IMPORTANT!! She is holding her own for now but she has a long road. Keep them in your thoughts!!

And its my parents 30th anniversary today!! Happy Anniversary Dad & Mom...way to go!!

Thank you for stopping over at my other blog. Thank you for leaving me the wonderful comment.
I am so sorry for the journey you have been on. Your loss is so sad.
I am so happy that you are pregnant and that doppler thing sounds awesome. May God Bless you and your new little baby. If you are ever in need of my handkerchief project please let me know. Take care & God bless.

what make and model do you have, and where did your friend get it? This will be my 'hey, I am pregnant' present to myself - hopefully soon!

and I will totally be doing kickcounts next time - no thanks to the clueless doctors.

Absolutely! I loved my doppler, I ordered it when I was in my first trimester. It is a life saver. I know in my last last trimester I carried it with me all the time. And sometimes in the car I would just pull it out and listen to that marvelous sound.

I will be praying for your friend and her baby.
