I'm pregnant again after losing my baby boy at 37 weeks last year.
I'm very happy to be pregnant again and full of hope, but I am feeling so many other emotions fear, guilt, sadness. I should have a baby now, and I don't. I can't just forget about him, I wanted him so much.
I'm finding it very hard to talk to friends and family as they're always cutting me off by saying I should be positive. But after what happened last time, isn't it not normal that I feel like this?

So sorry you lost your baby boy, I think it's normal to be scared, my sister inlaw lost a baby 10 years ago in the 6th month of pg but went on to have 2 healthy pg and baby girls.

I lost my baby boy last week at 20 weeks pg, the pain is indescribable and I don't think people can realy understand unless they've been through it themselves.

Congratulations and good luck, I know the next months are going to be a frightening time for you but I hope you can enjoy your pregnancy and your new baby x

Hi Sweetlucy very sorry about your loss.congrats on being pg again.
Hi * blue* xx
Our precious DD was stillborn at 41 weeks last October (10th) & I m now 36 weeks pg with her sister. I had, had 2 MCs before Georgie last year & another early mc at new year before finding out I was pg in Feb. It has been difficult emotionally at times ; particularly as I come to the end of the pg & towards Georgie's birthday. Things that have helped me; friends, wonderful family, counselling, wonderful DH, fab colleagues & enjoying my job. Also , still living my life; plenty of weekends away to help the time pass to ensure I didn t just focus on pg related stuff.
These are my coping factors may be totally different for you. I think also accepting that it will be incredibly difficult & the old mantra
" 1 day at a time"
Good luck & hugs xxx
