Instead I'm on my sofa feeling like shit.

I miscarried my second child in May. I came to terms with it but it's suddenly hit me that the baby was due a week ago, and I should be sat here snuggling a gorgeous newborn right now. And it's like it's happened all over again.

I feel you, I should be 32 weeks now and would have been having her in Jan due to a planned early section, but she died at 22 weeks, it's just the worst feeling isn't it. Be kind to yourself and just grieve as you need too.

I hear you. Our baby would have been 1 in december. Be kind to yourself.

I’m so sorry @Mammabear31 it is hard when you have a realisation like that. I’m sorry you lost your little one and that you feel the ache of empty arms today. I have been there too and it is bitterly sad. Big hugs, be gentle with yourself xx

Oh you poor thing, be kind to yourself and just allow yourself to feel whatever you’re feeling. I can totally relate to this. I was lucky enough to fall pregnant again just before the due date of the baby I miscarried but I was still surprised at the intensity of my grief and anger. All the firsts were hard, then this year I realised that the anniversary of the date I miscarried was past and I’d missed it. Time may not heal but it helps. Hope you have someone to speak to in real life

I’m so sorry for your loss.

My may miscarriage should be 1 month old. My recent miscarriage should have me 22 weeks now.

I hope this gets easier for all of us.

Oh it's so fucking sad isn't it. I was supposed to have DC2 in September and that really hurt. I keep picturing what would have been...
I should have my 'second' DC2 in Feb but that isn't happening either...

Then several of my friends have got pregnant and had kids since my two MCs and I just feel all despondent...

flowers to everyone

My ectopic baby would have been 16 this week. It gets easier but you never forget.

flowers and hugs xx
I lost my first at 14 weeks, that was 17 years ago, but somewhere out there, she's waiting for me (I was sure she was a she)

Mammabear31 Wed 20-Dec-17 22:20:57

So many of us hurting. Sorry to you all, but sorry is never enough is it. flowers

I should have had my 20 week scan last week. I was so looking forward to finding out if we were having a boy or girl.
That's a lovely thought @Violletta, that your little girl is out there waiting for you x

sorry to you all, I miscarried at 13 weeks in early November and was due for my 20 week scan this coming week. My period also arrived yesterday. I thought I had come to terms with things but its brought about a whole wave of emotions and struggling a little today. visiting this forum and talking to you lovely ladies brings me comfort in knowing I'm not alone. its helpful because I just don't think the people around me understand. xx

Goodness tonight is hard, the thought of what 2018 should be bringing but isn't. I hope that you're all doing ok.

rachsl8 Sun 31-Dec-17 23:46:17

Sending you hugs @seastargirl it’s difficult and know exactly what you mean. It’s hard to look forward, to be honest I just want to get back to work and stuck into a routine again to take my mind off things. Despite that though I am determined that 2018 will be a better year for us all x

UnicornsandRainbows1 Sun 31-Dec-17 23:54:32

Would be 15 weeks today (due 24th June), and 37 weeks tomorrow (due 22nd January). I'm not sure how I remember every single piece of information still but I do, and I don't think I'll forget it. Thinking of you all. I really hope 2018 brings us some happiness
