Found it hard yesterday writing christmas cards......

Whilst writing all the christmas cards (I know, I'm very organised sad), it was so obvious that all the other moms I met when I had my DD, have mostly all now got bigger families, with more babies.

Writing the 'to' line is longer for them all, when my 'from' line is still just the 3 of us......Sad

Big hug Brew, from another 1 child family that will never be any more.

I know your pain, we have more people to send cards to now that had babies the same time as me but my baby died, this time last year we were signing card from Me, Dh and Bump and now its just me and him.

Hug from me too, Hon. Just the three of us here also. Due date getting soon now. Dreading it.

Thanks everyone.
I think it was hard because this is one of the first times I've really 'noticed' that it's just the 3 of us - I'm sure there will be many more.
I know we're so so lucky to have our DD, but I so desperately want a brother or sister for her.
