  1. First, happy birthday to her!

    And do you think maybe you miscarried a twin? I had what they call a vanishing twin with my first – I conceived twins and then one was reabsorbed.

    But reading about the part where you were miscarrying or appeared to be miscarrying was hard. I still remember my first miscarriage, 16 years ago, like it was yesterday.

      I did miscarry a twin; they pulled out enough tissue that night the ER that it was clear.

      I remember your miscarriage story; you’ve been kind enough to direct me to it.

    Happy belated Birthday, girl. You did well.

    Congratulations on holding on tight to twelve; there’s no reason why you both shouldn’t continue to hold on happily now until the bonds loosen all by themselves and she goes off into the happy lands where she provides you with the next generation. But that’s in the future, there is plenty of mother-daughter fun still to come before then.

    Happy Birthday, Girl!! Twelve becomes you. I predict a smooth and wonderful future for you both.

    As for the rest, yes, miscarriage is a taboo subject; you are brave to discuss it. Your description recalls an Event of my own that has not gone away (in fact, a most wise physician, not my OB, gave the most comfort when she said “you never really get over that”). The one sliver of good is that it does make you appreciate who you have all the more. Which you do. Lucky, lucky them.

    Blue moons apparently bode well for great things. Happy Birthday to your girl. She is a wonder in so many ways. I feel honored to know her through you.

    Oh man, she is truly amazing… consoling her brother at such young age like that… brought tears to my eyes this early monday morning in Denmark..
    The “honk/cute” sign; might want to hide it for the coming years.. she can have it back at fourty-something.. 😉
    Happy belated birthday to your Girl

    I love this one. You can repost it anytime.

    She sounds like a gift, that daughter of yours. A few of my bloggy pals have daughters that I’m envious of, and yours is one of them. Since kidnapping is frowned upon, I’ll pin my hopes on an arranged marriage in order to score one of these wonderful girls to have as my own “daughter.”
    But seriously, congratulations and Happy Birthday to her!

    Oh, what a story.

    Miscarriage seems like the last taboo – until it happens to you. Then, everyone and her mother turns out to have had one too.

    Happy birthday, all around.

    I would definitely honk! She is totally cute. I have not read your blog – or posted on my own in almost 4 years. I have missed it! My eleven year old is the same kind of miracle – I feel blessed.

    I had one o’ them miscarriages, too, right between the two good ones. It happens.

    Girl is Something Special, that’s for sure. HB to her!
