I'm so sorry for your loss. I have also had a miscarriage. Our third pregnancy was a surprise--and not necessarily a welcome one at first. But we soon became excited about our third baby and began rewriting the future in our minds to include this third child. It was not to be, though. It's the hardest thing I've ever been through.....but I made it through. I know you will, too. Even if we sometimes look back and wonder what could have been. Take care.


That was beautiful. I know exactly how you felt. My "due dates" were wrenchingly awful days for me, but the days after got progressively better. It was almost like the phantom pain some amputees feel. As long as the pregnancies were supposed to have been there, I felt their loss so acutely. Once the time came that they would have ended naturally, I didn't feel their absense the same way.

Best wishes on the next chapters of your lives!


I am very sorry for the loss of your pregnancy and all those dreams that went along with it. Like you, I have found that the passing of the due date helps in some ways.

I'm sorry for the loss of your baby. I've not suffered a miscarriage, but I've experienced other types of death and loss. And for me, the popping of the dream bubbles is the beginning of healing, as odd as that might sound. The dream ends, but an emotional scar remains as a reminder of what was, what could have been. And that's okay because I don't really want to forget.
