In March 08 I had my 3rd miscarriage. The baby's due date was today. Even though I know I cannot change the situation and some things happen for a reason I am still feeling very down. I can't help but think of what might have been. At work at the moment trying to put a brave face on things but I feel like I will burst into tears at any time.

Montym - this is a very sad day for you and your other half. It's alright to feel sad - in your shoes I would too. How long do you have to stay at work? Might it be an idea to leave early if you possibly can. Go home, keep warm and have a good cry if you need to. You lost your much wanted baby and that is a terrible loss. I'm so sorry that happened to you sad

Sorry to hear that, your due date is the first horrible hurdle.
Can you get out of work?

So sorry, montym. Do you absolutely have to be at work? Or is there anyone at work that you can have a little cry to? It's a horrible time - and you spend the day wondering how come everyone doesn't realise there should be another life in the world when you know that your world should be different today. Will you be able to go home and be with someone this evening who understands? Sending you thoughts and prayers. x

Poor you, I understand it could have been important day in your life. You bound to be emotional and upset. I think you are dealing very well, if you feel like crying have good cry later. Do you have some1 close to talk after work.

Can't you get off before then? Is there anybody to cover?
