Miscarriage and Pregnancy Loss Support Miscarriage and Pregnancy Loss Support

Rough week * pregnancy mentioned*

I didn't think it was going to hit me this hard... But I would have been due with my baby Saturday if I didn't loose "him" in November.. My husband kept asking me yesterday why am I so cranky and I finally broke out in tears and said do you even remember we'd be having a baby this week... I felt bad but I asked him to stop asking me.. My boys named him "Timmy"

I'm currently 22 weeks pregnant with my rainbow baby girl... And I'm trying to be excited but I feel guilty...

I read this the other day on FB and thought it was perfect...

***An angel in the book of life wrote down my baby's birth. And whispered as she closed it "to beautiful for earth"

Sorry this is all over my mind just keeps racing'

I'm sorry for your loss. I haven't been able to get pregnant with my rainbow yet but I can understand the sadness. I have 2 living children that I love with all my heart and I know I'm blessed to have but it doesn't take away my hurt for the 2 I've lost. ((Hugs)) momma

My pastor said it best when he told me, "we are just complicated people, we can feel many emotions at once."  I think we try to tell ourselves we only can feel this way now or another way later.  When really you can feel the heartache of the loss of Timmy while still feeling the joy of being pregnant again.  Why limit yourself to either.  It doesn't mean you aren't giving enough justice to one emotion or another.  Find a way to love and greive.  To find joy and sorrow.  To find the future and closure.  I don't know your religion but I found it so peaceful when one of my friends told me that even though I couldn't hold my babies, Jesus was holding them for me until I come.  I hope you find your balance with all of these thoughts and emotions.  We are here for you.

When I was pregnant with my rainbow, I found it hard to not feel guilty. If I didn't lose Norah, I would not have my Gabriel and it was hard to sort my feelings out. I love both babies and having a new baby does not mean I grieve for Norah any less. If he had been here she would be happy to be getting a baby brother and she would want me to be happy about it as well. Hugs, hope your week gets better
