One week

I made it through one week. One week ago yesterday I found out my baby had died at 17 weeks, and one week ago today I delivered her. It's amazing how our lives can turn upside down in an instant. I'm sorry you all are here, but I'm comforted knowing I'm not alone.

I am so sorry for your loss. On the 21st of this month was the 7 year anniversary of the stillbirth of my first daughter. We lost her at 38 weeks. I just wanted to let you know that there are others here who feel your pain. I can't say it gets better, but it gets easier to deal with. Not a day goes by that i don't think of my angel baby Madison...

Hugs~ Jennifer

Hi Jamie,

I'm glad you wrote in again, to keep us posted. It's really horrible to lose a baby, and you're right that it's very good that we all have each other here.

We care, and we're going to help you through this.

Hugs,
Nicole

Jamie-
10 days ago today, I delivered our daughter Kylie at 19 weeks. You are not alone, you will never be alone. Although I'm not willing to admit that I am a part of this forum yet and have not formally introduced myself, I feel your pain, I unfortunatly know all too well what you are being faced with right now.

I don't have any words of wisdom for you, I can't help in any way, we are both grieving right now and that's all we can do.

I just wanted to tell you, that you are not alone and that there are people here for you, always!

please PM if you'd like to talk to get to know eachother, I've found it especially helpful talking to other women (who have recently or long ago)gone through very late m/c.

With thoughts and prayers of hope,
Jennifer

I am SOO sorry that you have gone through this Sad Like the others have said, eventually it gets easier to make it through the day. Though you will never forget your sweet angel, you will move forward, do the things you need to do, and get through the day-week-or month without terrible sorrow. You are not alone, there are so many strong women here that can help you get through week after week. Big hugs!

Every day can seem like an eternity....and every week will pass and you will think..."last week at this time", soon, "last month at this time". Sadly time will pass quickly, and I do hope the heavy heartache will lift slightly for you.

I am sorry for your loss.

I had to post on this thread. Some of you know me from a while back. Our daughter Tessa died prematurely. She was our "miracle baby"...because we had done IVF several times and miscarried. We made her without help and found out about her on Christmas eve 2006. She died on March 9, 2007. Part of me died then too. We have had so many changes in our lives since she died and always I feel that there are only 2 times in my life. "Before Tessa died" and "After Tessa died." That is the only way I can still measure time. For the longest time I truly believed that nothing good would ever happen after she died. But good stuff has happened. I don't know if I can give you any worthwhile advice....just go at your own pace, breathe, there are no "wrong" feelings, and be gentle with yourself and your partner.

Also, posting here saved my sanity. There are so many good women here. They listen well, give advice ONLY when asked for it, and don't ever judge.

Take care, ok?

Now it seems like an eternity since I delivered Whitney... and really it just happened a little over two weeks ago. It's so hard getting back to reality and real life... and I keep having setbacks that remind me just how recent everything took place. Yesterday, I finally got Whitney's remains and the photos that Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep took... that made all of the emotions resurface. Sigh...
