I lost my son on November 1st of 2012 at 23 weeks. His due date is March 12th which is Tuesday. Since the loss I have kept myself insanely busy, working three jobs, now 2 but still working 80-90 hrs a week. Doing things with my daughter outside the house and just on the go constantly because when I'm not, I cry....and it doesn't stop. I have been dreading the month of March since his passing. In the past week I have completely shut everyone out...Not even speaking to my bf. I'm in a world full of emotion and I'm not sure what to do as his due date is approaching. I'm already a reck. Any advice anyone can give would be greatly appreciated. Prayers are appreciated also. Thank you ladies <3

My due date came and passed pretty uneventfully...but, my date of association is the birth date, which is June 9th. I obviously haven't hit it yet, so things may change, but my plan is to keep it very positive. I want to celebrate is little life. My plan is to make a donation, pay it forward with random acts of kindness, etc...maybe even a cake. I want to think of his life, not in a sad way, but instead honor him and make a difference.

(((Hugs))). I hope you find the perfect way to make your Angels day special!

 My due date went by uneventfullly. But it was Dec. 4, so it is always crazy that time of the year. I remember thinking that it would be a lot harder than it was. I like Angela was more worried about when I lost her, which was in July. July went by and honestly on the day, I didn't even think about what had happened the year before. I remember thinking about it that week, and I got cards from the hospital...but the day of thankfully I didn't think about it. Granted at that point I was so focused on getting pregnant, that I wasn't focused on much else besides my ovulation cycle and medications. I like Angela's ideas of celebrating.

 IDK, I will pray for you. My due date is in July and I share it with a Woman at church who is still pregnant. I have no clue how I will deal with that. I am still having a very hard time being around her.

Maybe just allow yourself to feel what you need to feel. Do something that honors your little one. It is spring so maybe start a little garden and get a stone, or statue to honor him?

Praying for you and so sorry for your loss. Maybe you can do a little memorial or balloon release? Thinking of you
