I have been lurking here for several weeks and have finally decided to create an account and post. I lost my angel son on Dec 20th, 2008 due to cervical insufficiency. I was 19 weeks 4 days. This was my first pregnancy and am still pretty numb about what happened. I guess I am here to meet people who understand what I am going through because right now I feel pretty alone.
I am so sorry for your loss! I had a m/c in November at 10 1/2 weeks and it has been the most difficult thing that I have ever gone through. I have learned that it is okay to grieve and that time helps to heal the pain. I have found some wonderfully supportive women on the Trying to Conceive After a Loss board so feel free to join us there if you want. Not everyone there is TTC right now and I know that a couple of the women there have had losses in the 2nd trimester so it may help for you to talk to them too.
Hugs. I am so sorry that you lost your baby. I have had two first trimester losses, but can only imagine how terrible it is to lose your baby later on. I second tammy, try coming over to ttcal, it is a little more active, and there are a few women that have had later losses as well. Hugs and prayers.
I am so sorry for the loss of your baby. I also lost a baby just before Christmas (in 2002) and it was such a rough holiday season.
I'm glad you're here, and that you've introduced yourself. It's a very brave thing to do. Please keep writing in -- with your questions, concerns, anything! We're all here for you, and we're going to help you through this.
I am so sorry for your loss. It's very difficult. I had a loss a few days before Thanksgiving. I was 19wks 5 days our son Reid was born on 11-22-08. Please PM me if you feel like talking... I've found that just writing out or talking about my story has helped with the healing so know that if you feel like sharing, I am here to listen to you no matter how many times you need to talk about it! I hope your pain eases soon.
