My heart aches so bad sad

I lost little Christopher at 20 weeks in December. We buried him in January. I don't really know what I want to say, just I wish so bad it was different, he should be laying in my arms sad

Christopher. mummy, daddy and your brothers love you so much xxxxxxx

I'm very sorry for your loss, I found my due date very hard too. sad flowers

Sorry to hear about your little boy. I have had two babies that died at 20 weeks, so I do sympathise with how much you must be hurting.

I am so very sorry for your loss sad flowers
I lost a little girl at 20 weeks and another girl at 23 weeks, different reasons, each was a horrible time of such sadness beyond words. I found the due dates very hard too and every week went by I would know that is how many weeks I should be as well as two friends who were due at the same time.

Rest in peace Christopher, much loved and much missed by your family.

Significant dates are always hard, particularly if other people don't know why they're significant. Be kind to yourself.

Thank you very much for your kind words.

Someone I know was also due around the same time, her dd was born on Thursday, which is hard to cope with sad even though I am happy for her, does that make sense.

My feelings are all over sad

Your feelings about your friend's baby are completely understandable. I hope you've been able to pass the EDD peacefully. It's right that you remember and honour Christopher on special dates, I hope it will get easier for you as time passes.

We went to his grave to leave some flowers and light a candle, it was peaceful, he will always be in our hearts.

I just need to work through my feelings.

I've struggled over due dates. Look after yourselves well. It sounds like you remembered Christopher meaningfully.

So sorry for your loss. I hope you're feeling a little more positive. Sounds like a beautiful way to remember your little boy. I too am dreading my EDD but hope I can remember my little bean as wonderfully as you did with yours.

Big hugs to you. I miss my little girl every day, she was stillborn in September 2011. I find that nobody understands unless they've been through it themselves. Hopefully your little boy may have met up with my little girl in heaven and be friends and look after each other smile xxxxx
