Was it a boy or a girl?

Did you know the sex of your lost baby? If you didn't, did you have any gut instinct idea about what you might be carrying? If you lost a baby or child after birth (whether young or old) please tell us whether it was a son or a daughter.

I didn't know the sex of my lost baby, but my gut instinct said it was a girl and I had my heart set on a girl.

I have had several people tell me I needed a girl, and I had to agree with them. My older son had a "girl" friend for a bit that he played with all the time and it was really great to share "girl" things...doing her hair, watching "girl" movies (Annie). Yes, I really had my heart set on a girl.

I still want a girl.

This group is for women who have suffered the loss of a child. This includes miscarriages, stillbirths, and accidents and crimes. This group is also open to women who have had abortions and still feel the weight of that decision. We also welcome women who have given up children for adoption because in a way they too have lost a child. So, whether you have actually held your baby in your arms or not come share your story of loss and survival with us. You never know how your experience can help someone else in theirs.
