It was a hard day. I try to stay positive and I do have days that are happy. -And, I know I have my husband and children to thank for that. But, that sinking feeling kept on creeping in today. I had an old friend call me apologizing for my loss, the problem is, I didn't tell her yet. She was someone I was avoiding for the time being, because she has a beautiful newborn son. I was planning on calling her soon, maybe sometime this week. -And I'm okay talking about it when its on my own terms. The call just caught me completely off guard. I wasn't ready for anyone to approach me. I know she made the call out of love and concern and I do love and thank her for that. But this pain is mine and I have to heal little by little in my own way. I just wasn't ready...View Thread
Hey you, I know how you feel. I was 7 weeks to the day, lost the baby on September 24th. I'm so sorry for you, I think were suppose to resent the world for awhile, and I think its ok to be selfish and take care of ourselves, even if it means alienating ourselves from family or friends for awhile. If you need someone to talk to you can contact me. My husband and I planted a baby spruce in memory of our baby, I don't know I just found it helpful, maybe even a little healing. It's in our backyard, I can see it everyday. I plan on adding a garden around it little by little. Just a way of remembering our little one, because I don't want to forget. Maybe it would be helpful to you to. Your not alone.View Thread
