I can't believe it's 2 years ago today I lost my precious baby to a missed miscarriage.

Even though I've since gone on to have a beautiful daughter who I discovered I was pregnant with on miscarried babies due date I'm still feeling sad and tearful today.

Is this normal? Please tell me it will go away with time and this day won't always hurt me x

So sorry to hear about your miscarriage. I have 2 little ones but still think about the 3 miscarriages I had and what may have been. I think that's totally normal. It's a really hard thing to go through, emotionally and physically draining.
Take care x

So sorry giraffe thanks

I find that this whole bollocky miscarriage stuff is one massive roller coaster. It's totally normally for you to feel teary today. I've just found out I'm pregnant after losing one earlier in the year and it's making me very emotional.

Have you got anything nice planned today? Maybe a day out with your lovely DD will help make you feel brighter?

The one thing I've been trying to learn is that it's ABSOLUTELY OK AND NORMAL to grieve after a miscarriage, even when time has moved on a little bit. The hurt never goes, it just becomes part of us. I think.

Massive hugs thanks

MrsGiraffe what you are feeling is totally normal. I had six miscarriages before we had our daughter and I still remember them all, I first one was eight years ago, and the last five years ago. The memories have become less painful over the years but are still there on those dates. Like last Christmas I became really tearful and couldn't think why at the time, but I found out one of my babies had died inside me at the eleven week scan (had been alive at the nine week early scan), on 21st December 2007 and I had a D&C on Christmas Eve. I think even once you have a baby it hits home even more what you have lost, what they could have been.

Yes it will always hurt to some extent, you learn to live with it but won't ever forget it. It's nothing to be ashamed of at all.
