Today I Should be holding a new baby...

As I made lunches for My kids this morning I had the oddest feeling come over me. I focused on an empty chair in between My kids eating breakfast and I was immediately reminded that today was My babies due date.

I had My Miscarriage at 12 weeks. I had to have an emergency D&C after the ER failed to see I was having trouble.. they were to busy telling me how I would be fine and how lucky I am to have a large family... as if having a large family somehow lessons the loss of a child. I ended up back to ER by ambulance because the bleeding wouldn't stop & My heart was acting up. ( I have PPCM)

Anyway... am I the only one who senses them missing? Did you feel this way on the babies due date?

I do.. My angel baby was due June 20... So I kept think how aug he/she would have 2 mths ... I often wonder what they would have looked like.. If we're in the car an my kids are fighting over the one seat I think how that should have been babies.,.

My husband didn't even remember the due date :-/

I'm now 33 weeks with a rainbow baby and I still feel this way! Ontop freaking something will happen to her since I couldn't carry the other baby :-/

I definitely sense the loss, but for some reason the due date isn't really the date I relate with my babies.  I also have a large family...and having a large family is awesome...but it doesn't make losing a baby any easier.

My due date was suppose to be September 15th of this month, and every time I see or look at baby things I tear up. I have for months wondered if I was having a girl and boy and I want to know! I never will, of course! I've had dreams of my baby, can never tell what it would have been... I hope it gets better for you!

Honestly, no. On the day I lost them, I feel sad, especially for my daughter, but I don't feel like they are missing, because they were never really there, not the way my other kids are. I truly believe everything happens for a reason, and the children I lost just weren't meant to be with us, and thinking about it won't change what is, it'll just taint what I have with sadness. It's sad, but it's gotten easier, and I've put it behind me to focus on the children I have with me. I hope things get easier for you!

Every day I think about the fact that my baby should be turning 1 on the 16th of next month.  My oldest will be 8 on the same day, I also have a 4 yr old, a 2 yr old and a baby due in Nov.  I will always miss my baby I lost.  I thought maybe after i got pregnant again, it would stop hurting so much and i was very wrong.  I still miss my baby every day.  I love the 3, almost 4 girls i have and am very blessed to have them here and healthy, but I will never stop missing my angel.

I hope things getting easier for you to. They say time heals I don't think we really heal. I just think We are built to survive and with time our human nature pushes us forward. We cant focus on our loss forever or we would never gain again.

((hugs)) I am sorry for your loss hun.  I have had my rainbow baby since my loss but I know how your feeling because I still feel like a part of me is missing.  My dh was affected by our loss but not like I was and in all honesty I don't even know if he thinks about are angel anymore.
