My beautiful amazing baby dd2, Summer, died 2 weeks ago yesterday. Her heart was unable to pump blood properly. We never knew until it was too late. She was 11 weeks and 6 days old. I spent most of that day shopping, then at a Halloween party with the other dc. I missed most of my sum sums last day. Dp had to see to her himself, our poor baby not breathing, already gone, in her sleep.

I miss her. And it hurts. Ds turned 2 two days after she passed. If it wasn't for him and dd1 I'd be a screaming wreck in a padded cell. I'm sick of being strong now. I I want my sweet precious baby back.

So very very sad to read of your loss - your daughter Summer sounds gorgeous and my heart breaks for you.
I can't see your profile pics, must be an MN glitch as it goes to a weird page when I click on your OP name, but she sounds adorable.
(((hugs))) for you and your family. x

I am so, so very sorry that you lost your precious Summer. Your words about her are so very touching and she sounds like such a beautiful little baby with a massive personality.
I know what you are going through as my dd died at birth almost three years ago. I Found fantastic support on MN when my dd died, so I will always be here if you need to rant, scream or cry I'm just a PM away.

I hope summer is dancing in the clouds, she will looking down on her wonderful parents with pride.
Sweet dreams angel.

Sending you lots of love and hands to hild. Thinking of you and your family, and your beautiful little summer. Xxxxx

Superman, sending you love and light. If I could take away your pain, I would. However, there are plenty of wonderful people here who will listen to your words about Summer, and walk with you on this terrible journey of pain. They helped me enormously when my beautiful Mia did - and many still do - so please, lean on us if you need. We are here. xx

So sorry, Superman, my heart goes out to you and your family. I send lots of love.

hello lovely ladies, i saw my doctor yesterday just to see how i am he says i'm doing well. i no longer feel the need for sleeping tablets although i only took them 3 or 4 times luckily. he's confident i don't need my a.ds put up my rattiness is mainly hormones <yey> such a relief.

things have been tiresome here for wont of a better word, my mother and sister have been prattling on about christmas and how it's for families and whilst i know it is, my family is incomplete without Summer, so christmas is not going to be all jolly flaming hockey sticks as they seem to think. i'm utterly sick hearing of it.

i have bought a small tree around 3 feet tall, and some small decorations that's my christmas this year. we aren't the most festive of families to begin with, neither of us enjoy dressing the tree/house etc so it's no great shame there. i have bought special boubles for the children - dd1 chose a purple snowflake for herself that glitters like her personality, ds has a felt robin with a cheeky look to it and a rounded belly just like his grin and for Summer, a silver butterly, very delicate and slightly sparkled. as soon as i seen it i knew i needed it. some things just 'scream' Summer at me IYKWIM? i see things whilst shopping and say that'd suit Sum or oh She'd love that etc then the stabbing pain in my chest comes and i have to fight back the tears.

dp is quiet, too quiet and rather miserable looking although it is his birthday this week, he's feeling old, our wifey isn't here then christmas round the corner it's not easy for him. ds is a ball of energy he keeps us on our toes and whilst he is tiring it's almost enjoyable being kept so busy. dd1 is coping amazingly well, we talk about Sum often i think it's good for both of us.

i can't wait until 2014 kicks in, this year has been a mixed bag. i want just 1 year of good god willing.

My heartfelt condolences to you and your family Supermans.

She sounds gorgeous.

You have nothing to feel guilty about. It sounds like she spent her last hours with her Daddy, another person who loved her. We cannot know what lies in the future but you sound like a parent who didn't take her baby (or any of her other children) for granted. All you did was have trust that nothing bad would happen. I am so sorry flowers.

Spacefrog35 Wed 11-Dec-13 22:30:19

What a lovely way to involve Summer in your Christmas ever year. I'm sure it will be of comfort to you not only this year but for many years to come to be able to put up her Christmas decoration.

People can be so insensitive without realising. Sounds like family are a bit like this. I'm sure they don't mean harm, it's just very difficult to know how to act & what to say unless you've walked in those shoes. I hope you, DP & DC have a gentle and peaceful Christmas

Morning lovely, thinking of you here and beautiful Summer


thanks

Really rough couple of weeks, I'm so angry. Angry with Summer for leaving me, us. I WANT her angry I'm angry at my step kids for being here still - why should they be when Summer isn't?! Why should their mum be happy?! My beautiful baby is gone and she gets to keep her Children??! It's not on at all Summer is the most amazing fascinating beautiful baby with the sweetest face and she's gone whilst those kids live? Wheres the justice in that? She was my final child, I was sure we were complete and now I'm empty and furious. I'm so angry at dp for speaking to his children I know it's ridiculous and they have nothing to do with my feelings but it hurts so much that they get a dad and Summer is not here to. I'm being a miserable wicked bitch sad

OP you need some counselling. Please go and see your doctor.

I think what you are feeling is entirely natural and expected but it's not healthy in the long-term. A professional will help you acknowledge and accept your rage and your grief and then help you move on, not forgetting but integrating.
