I am so sorry that you are suffering a loss of such magnitude... that is so very sad. I was so happy to see that you are expecting again, and I am sending you lots and lots of sticky vibes. Hang in there.


Jessie, I am happy about the new pregnancy and hopeful that all will be well. I'm also so sorry for your loss, and hope that your family's grief becomes bearable soon. I know it can't ever go away completely. Hugs to you.


Wow, such good and bad news all mixed together. It's hard to say congratulations when you're grieving such an unexpected loss, yet hard to express condolences when you've also given us a reason to celebrate with you, y'know? Anyway, I'm sending you a big hug to wrap it all together in. And if I may say so, I think it's very cool that we're due so close together. (I'm officially due on the 13th of June.)


Sending lots of healthy pregnancy and healing of hearts vibes your way.


I am so sorry about your sister-in-law. And happy to hear that you are pregnant again. I am hoping that your pregnancy stays healthy, and that you and Geoff will be able to help Katie remember her Aunt Stephanie in less tangible ways through your own stories, photos, and memories.


I'm very sorry to hear about Stephanie. I know the pain and disappointment you are feeling, my brother died by an overdose a few years ago. It is hard not to feel angry, but in time the good memories out weigh the bad.

Congratulations on your pregnancy.


Huge congratulations to your pregnancy (you've got me both jealous and hopeful now, too!)! One of the best ways to honor someone who's passed away is to use their name as a middle name for your child ... so, perhaps your new little one could be [Firstname] Stephanie or [Firstname] Stephen?

Dear Jess:

Congratulations on your pregnancy! I am so happy for you, Jess, truly.

I am sooo sorry about Stephanie. My condolences to everyone touched by her passing. {{{hugs}}}


What a mixed set of circumstances.
I'm sorry to hear of your loss.
I'm happy to hear your expecting again. I'll keep your family in my thoughts for all of the above.


I'm so sorry about your loss. It's so sad, and such a big hole for you too, it comes across in your writing of it.

But I am so happy to hear you are expecting again. As soon as I saw you posted I thought, "I hope she's pregnant." I wish you well!


I am so so sorry for your loss of Stephanie. She was a beautiful young woman. I am happy for you that you are pregnant again and will send hugs and thoughts your way. I know it's scary, my 2nd pregnancy I was a ball of nerves after losing my Jeremy due to preeclampsia, but try to keep perspective and relax. I know it's hard:)


Hi Jessie,
I am a long time reader back from your diary-x days. I just had to comment when you said that you were sad that Stephanie never got to know you were pregnant. I just had my first son in January and I was going through similar feelings about the fact that my dad had died before he ever got to meet his first grandchild. I was talking about it with my friend and she said "I hate to break it to you honey but your dad got to hold that baby way before you did." I hope that that is a kernel of truth that helps you like it helped me. I am happy for you that you are pregnant again and I am wishing you all the best from Virginia. Carrie


Jessie, I am so sorry to hear of your loss, and so happy to hear news of your pregnancy. It must be such an odd, difficult time for you all, with so much change and so many things to process - I am thinking of your family. xxx


my, what a tough year. Hope it all ends up well and {{{hugs}}} from england too!


I've known so many people who have been handed this sort of mixed up high emotion cocktail this year. I'm sorry you had to be one of them. Your year is a carnival ride and I'm one of the many looking for you to have a happy end of 2007 and a spectacular 2008.

hoping right along with you for a wonderful outcome


I am happy you posted again. I'm so sorry about your sister in law and have been keeping her and your family in my prayers. I'm really happy for you about the pregnancy. I really hope it all goes smoothly. I had a baby, then a miscarriage, and am now 7.5 months pregnant and am still so nervous and this has been the most boring pregnancy ever. It's hard to get past how tenuous it all is. But I wish you luck and hope and faith.


Man, am I glad to see you posting again! And I'm so happy to read your exciting news.

I gave my condolences when you posted all those lovely pics of Stephanie on flickr, but I will again: I'm so sorry for your loss, for your family's loss.


Today is the 15th and I'm just catching up from my own crazy month. My condolences to you and Geoff and his family. It's so unbearably hard to lose a family member so young.

And it's your ultrasound today. I'm so happy for you Jessamyn.
