Feeling sad - sorry long-about older children dealing with mc
I've suspected that my 7 yr old ds has been worried about his baby brother due in Oct. We had a mc last summer at 10wks. Our kids knew. I was sick a lot from pregnancy, plus other reasons so we decided to tell the kids. Last night we went to the big sibling class at the hospital. We go to a freestanding birth center, but this is a good class not offered at birthing center. On the way to school I was talking to the kids about the differences of what will happen vs what they were told last night. Like we will go home a couple hrs after baby is born, etc. Then ds asked why we talk about the baby so much when we don't know if he'll get to come home and live with us. I knew what he meant, but wanted him to express it. He pointed up and said he may go straight to heaven too. I'm glad he opened up and we talked about how nothing is for certain, but this baby could live even if he was born today (I'm 32wks).
Glad he finally talked abou his concerns, but breaks my heart he isnt more open. He cried a lot last summer when we told him. He's been having potty accidents at night almost nightly the past 6 wks and I was assuming it was he was worried but when I tried to talk to him before, but he woulnt open up.
