I am very, very lucky to be 15 weeks pregnant, but the baby I lost earlier this year was due on November 9th. I was due to have a c section, so he/she would have been born last week of October.

I can't get out of my head the fact that I 'should' be 36 weeks pregnant now. I feel so sad at times and it just makes my anxiety about this pregnancy so much worse.

Hello, My baby would have been due this coming Saturday 26th October, I lost my little one on the 19th April. I haven't 'got over' the loss of my baby, and I think about him/her alot. I haven't yet spoke to my partner about how I am feeling, and the fact the due date is approaching. To be honest, I've been scared of speaking about it in case I brake down.
I am trying to figure out what I want to do on Saturday that will mark the day my baby should have been brought into the world. It makes it a little harder as both my sisters are expecting daughters, One of which is due to be born any day now. So I'm trying to hold it together.

I believe that all lost babies are watching over their parents, and will forever be in our hearts, and we will never forget.
I pray you will get through your due dates and you will be Ok.

Whatever you choose to do, I'm sure your baby will know you are thinking of them<3 God bless you. You will be in my thoughts and prayers thanks xxx

My sons due date is approaching too, it's next Tuesday, and I lost him in May for me it's been a roller coaster I went back to work in August but now I'm feeling more sadness as the due date approached. I've had a small grave stone made for him so I plan to pick it up and put it on his lair with fresh flowers that day. Nice for other people to acknowledge it but it's hard as the rally of support I got when it all happened has faded away and for me that's the most difficult bit when you feel like everyone has forgotten xxxx

Yesterday was my due date for my first pregnancy. Hard to think that 9 months ago my soon to be ex husband and I were so happy and now we can't stand each other. I spent the day trying to keep my mind off of it until a little after 1 pm I was sitting in bed with my boyfriend and just started crying. He didn't really know what to do but just sat there and held me. I'm trying to think of some way to do a memorial for her(my ex and I agreed we both thought the baby was going to be a girl). Honestly its the worst pain I've ever gone through but hopefully one day it won't hurt as bad.
