Ah spider I'm so sorry for your loss.

Mine was Saturday just gone (from my first IVF treatment) so I know some of what you're feeling.

I've been so sad for the past 6 months. On Saturday, DH, DD and I went to a significant place and released white balloons. I'm not usually so airy-fairy but I felt I needed to mark the day somehow and it really helped me. I said some words to my lost baby whilst doing it and it has given me some solace.

I'm also 7.5 weeks pregnant now and I think that helped me get through the day.

I hope you find some way of making today easier for you and your partner.

Significant dates are hard, particularly the ones nobody else recognises, the "would have been" dates rather than anniversaries.

brew for you. I promise it gets a bit easier each year.

Big fluffy hug xMWAHx Be kind to yourself and have a bloody good cry if you need to! You babba will know how much you love it and we all know, if you are able to, have a lovely glass of wine or whatever makes you feel good xxxx

Thanks guys. Just had some unrelated awful news, so bloody good cry definitely in order sad I have to go and cheer DS on at his first sports day after lunch though. Will have to pretend to have hayfever.

Thank you all.

DH forgot sad

Did you remind him? DH never knows my EDD until I'm at least twenty weeks hmm before which time he is oblivious.

It doesn't mean he doesn't care, it's just genuinely not something that has stuck in his brain, is my guess.
