Miscarriage and Pregnancy Loss Support Miscarriage and Pregnancy Loss Support

Fairly minor, but still annoying....

All of the Father's Day posts on Facebook. Friends are posting pictures of their husbands and babies who are 4-11 months old and saying, "Happy First Father's Day to my amazing husband!". The first few I just kinda brushed off, but now that there's been about ten of them I really want to say something about it really being their *second* father's day! Ladies, your husbands were fathers last year even though their babies were still tucked away inside of you! Maybe it's something that only moms of babies in Heaven would understand, as we've been reminded of the fact that parenthood starts at the very beginning, but who knows. Okay. Anyway. Done with my little rant for the day. ;)

Couldn't agree more. Hubby got a ton of Father's Day wishes and kept saying "I'm not a father" I told him he was making me sad saying it cause he is a father. Even if our babies in heaven!

Agree!!!!!!

I can't see the posts today b/c it's my first without my father. I got on for a few seconds this morning and decided today was a good day to STAY OFF!

Awww, hugs to you. That's another reason I wanted to make this year special for my husband, though it is really the second fathers day without his dad. I think he spent the last month of his dad's life playing phone tag trying to wish him a happy father's day/happy birthday (he died July 15th 2 years ago). *And* I'm being induced next week on his dad's birthday, so I imagine he's having a lot of bittersweet moments this month. Anyway, special hugs for you today, Elizabeth, and I hope you have lots of good memories to carry you through!

 My mom's side of the family celebrate Mother's and Father's day when the baby is still inside.  And baby also gets a present for Christmas.
