Finally...

So, on a Baby.story there was a real couple with a pregnancy loss discussed...their first pregnancy was with twin boys that were born at 27 weeks (one was born stillborn and the other twin lived 12 days and died from an infection)...they discussed how scary it was to get pregnant again and how long the 9 months seemed to feel after losing their twin boys...the mom said one thing that really stuck with me "No one told me that babies could die..."

I thought to myself, "I knew that babies could die...I just didn't think that it would happen to me."

This couple did go on to have a girl (their first rainbow baby) and the episode was about the birth of their son (2nd rainbow baby)...and, honestly, these people were so much humbler than any other couple I've seen on this show because they truly understood how precious each life is and how your life can change in a heartbeat...

You hit it on the head, Jen. I, too, knew that babies could die - it happened to friends of our 3 1/2 years ago....I just absolutely never thought that it would happen to me...even more so because the statistics said it wouldn't.

I was just wondering the other day if this topic would ever be discussed on that show. I'm sorry that I missed it, I'll have to keep my eye on the re-runs. *HUGS*

I wish I could have seen that episode. I know I am scared when the day comes that we are expecting our rainbow. Thanks for sharing!

I stopped watching the baby story after Emily went to heaven, it just hurts.Not because someone else is getting blessed,but like you said they never show the bad stuff too.I guess it's the fact I'll never have a rainbow baby,too.

I'm going to have to see if I can find that episode - maybe I'll search it online. I wish I could see this episode.

Thanks for sharing! I was also one of those people who knew babies died...I just never thought it would happen to ME. I'm glad baby story included this episode. (((HUGS)))

I wish I could've seen that episode. I'm glad they aired about loss. No doubt they knew how precious it is to have those babies.

I had to stop watching the baby story after Alyssa past away. its been too hard for me. I saw only one episode while i was pregnant about a loss. she was expecting twins and one of them past, but the couple never emphasized how hurt they were...they really only focused on the other twin. I hope I can get to a point where I can watch it again because even before I was pregnant IT was my favorite show...

I knew babies could die, but always thought it happened to "other" people. Not healthy moms and seemingly healthy babies.
