Is this normal, or am I nuts? (possible trigger)

In 2011 I had an early miscarriage. I was crushed. I loved and wanted that baby so much. 13 months later I found out I was pregnant with my 2nd DS. Pregnancy went fine and now I have a beautiful almost 3 month old little boy. But sometimes I think about the baby I lost and I am stricken with great sadness. The pain of loosing that baby comes flooding back. It will be 2 years in July since I lost the baby. Is it normal to still feel that kind of pain when I think about the miscarriage? I try not to think about it much since it does upset me, but sometimes it just sneaks up on me. So what do you think?

I think some counseling would be very beneficial to your heart and mind. Flashbacks with emotional response is normal, even 2 years later. I'm sorry you went through such a loss. Congratulations on your healthy baby!

Very normal. I lost my first baby many years ago and still cry from time to time. Time has made it easier though.
I am pregnant now with my third. It was twins but I lost twin b at fourteen weeks and have been having a horrible time.

 I may look into some counseling. If nothing else, it will let me get all of my feelings off my chest. Thank you.

You're Welcome. You might even find a support group might help, but that can take time to reach that step. Group settings can be difficult to sit through, but its also beneficial to know you aren't alone and you don't have to go through it alone. Good luck, I have no doubt your strength will pull you through the healing process.
