Today, I am going to write a post about my buddies. What is a "buddy" you ask? Let me tell you. On The Bump, I am part of an online community of fellow loss ladies. I've been part of this group for way too long and while I've been there, I have been a part of different buddy groups.
My first buddy group consisted of four of us and while I don't know how close the other ladies got to each other, I got close to each of these ladies. They were there for me and supported me through some really hard days. I had my second loss while a part of this buddy group and these women understood and let me cry and vent to them. All three of them have since been blessed with their rainbow babies and while I am beyond happy for them, I'm also a little sad that having a baby takes them away from me. I understand, I really do. It's hard to get online and chat and send emails when you have another little human being to take care of. I still keep in contact with them though, even if it's not as often as it used to be. To my first three buddies, you know who you are, I love you all so much. So so much. And I wish that we could all meet one day. But in the meantime, I will continue to stalk you on Facebook and The Bump and enjoy looking at pictures of your little ones.
I then became part of a second group of ladies, or buddies as we call them. This was a TTA group. There were three of us who had to TTA for varying reasons so we formed our group to support each other during a difficult time of frustration and impatience. Once again, these ladies were there for me during a hard time and they could understand what I was going through. Back in the spring/summer of 2011, we were united! They were given the go ahead to TTC again around the same time and were blessed with their rainbow babies this past April! Two beautiful little girls entered the world into awesome families with amazing moms. Once again though, having a baby limits your time online so we haven't been in touch as much as before. But, I can stalk them on Facebook. Good thing we have Facebook eh? To my two TTA turned TTC buddies, thank you for your support and encouragement over the last year. You are awesome!
Which brings me to my third, and current, buddy group. The Terrific Threesome. Yup, that about sums us up. :P These ladies make my days more bearable. I love our chats and the support and encouragement that you both offer me. I'm still determined that my baby luck will rub off on both of you soon and you will be on your way to your rainbow babies soon! I have a pretty good track record of my buddies having babies. Thank you both so much for understanding and being there for me. Always.
So that sums up my post of buddies. I am so thankful for these seven ladies that I have never met but feel like I've known forever. This past year and a half has been made easier thanks to you and I can't really write out all my appreciation. Just know that I love you all!
