Medical miscarriage

On Friday, my little man was born sleeping at 20+5 weeks after we decided to end the pregnancy due to severe genetic abnormalities.
My heart is absolutely broken, but what I'm struggling to cope with the most is how the people around me just seem to be getting on with their lives as usual - I appreciate we all deal with grief differently, but my partner went back to work today and asked me when I was going back... I can't even imagine life going back to usual - I feel like it's been forgotten that I gave birth three days ago, and now my milks coming in that's not helping things...
There's no point to this thread really, just somewhere to put my feelings.

Oh love. My son was born sleeping 20 weeks ago and I'm still not back to work. I've no words, honestly. You'll be OK, I'm OK, but its quite a journey. Rest, be very kind to yourself, feel everything you need to feel. Get help. Talk. Read.

Thank you. I'm so sorry for your loss, but I appreciate your kind words to know that what I'm feeling isn't unusual. Look after yourself too x

I'm so sorry for your loss. I hope the days get better. Be kind to yourself and take it easy. I think as mothers we tend to feel more. No one can understand our pain, only mothers that have had a loss x
