On what should have been Bb’s due date tomorrow 🎈

On what should have been Bb’s due date tomorrow 🎈

Tomorrow is what should have been my EDD for Bb, who we lost at 10 weeks in September. As with Mini Babba in November, we’re marking the occasion with the release of a balloon, this time a silver one. I was holding up ok until I walked out of the shop with my balloon today and then it hit me, we’re not going to come home with our baby, instead we have a balloon. I just felt so sad at this thought.

To all the ladies with broken hearts on this journey, you are not alone. I feel your pain. I feel your loss.

Vicky xx

Thinking of you lovely and sending big hugs. We planted a bay tree in our garden on our angel babys due date. I hated the thought of not being able to mark that he/she existed so we done that. Take as much time as you need it certainly is a tough time. Lots of love x x

We have a tree where our babies are buried. Sadly all of the leaves died so I’ve had to cut it all back, I hope it shows some signs of life soon otherwise we’ll have to replace it. A tree is a wonderful idea though xx

Currently struggling with attaching our tag with our note. It’s weighing the balloon down a bit. OH thinks it will be fine and float off in the breeze. I can’t help but feel a bit upset about it. Mini Babba’s balloon in November was exactly the same, except it was a gold one and the tag didn’t weigh it down at all. Maybe this one doesn’t have as much gas in it 🤷‍♀️ it sounds silly but it’s making me emotional. I just wanted it to be perfect. Anyway, once it’s floated away we’re off out for the day as I’m off work tomorrow. No point sitting at home being upset xx

Hey!

Don’t know why but thought apt to post today. Fresh from the news that Chris Evans having twins!! I knew it was by ivf and it gives help as he’s 52 and his wife is not younger than 35!

Been a hard week as it’s almost a year to the day that my ivf cycle failed and my dad had a stroke just afterwards. He had a mini stroke this week and so it’s felt like is April cursed for us and been feeling likes it’s all happening again. Although it’s not. I think it’s good to look at where u are now and see how things have moved forward. I’ve just had a tube removed and decided whether to get rid of obstructive fibroid. And whether to actually go for it again next year! It’s a big old journey this one but all I can say to you is garnet support around you even if you think you are tough as nails and look after yourself! We are all stronger than we know!! Lots of love Ladies xxx

Thank you. I hear you on April! My birthday is in April, we found out the day before last year that we’d lost our first baby and then the surgery was two days after my birthday and now we have Bb’s due date.

I didn’t know about Chris Evans and it’s great that ivf has worked for them and given them a beautiful family. I hope they talk about ivf a LOT now, that would be a really good thing for them to do. We need to banish the stigma, ignorance and lack of understanding.

I hope your Dad is doing well these days xx
