So upset by pictures of new prince
SadMummy85 · 06/05/2018 08:32
My son died a few hours after birth after a full term delivery just 5 weeks ago. The only pictures I have of him with his older sister were taken after he had died. Just wasn't expecting to see those photos when read the news this morning. So upset.

I’m so sorry. I can’t imagine how difficult that must be and how you must be feeling right now.
I’m very sorry for your loss of your lovely boy x

Thank you so much for replying. I don't even know why I posted. Just trying to keep breathing at the moment and that photo really floored me

Didn't want to read and run. Sending you enormous hugs.

So very sorry to hear of the loss of your precious son. It is of course completely understandable for you to be very upset by the photographs of the new baby. Have you been able to talk through your feelings, maybe with family or something more formal like a counselling service? It is such early days for you. Sending you huge hugs and strength.

It must be so difficult seeing those pictures.
I’m so, so sorry for your loss

I have some good friends who are happy to listen. It's hard to articulate what's even going on in my head though. Just broken.

So sorry for the loss of your son. I read this post this morning and it's stuck with me, I just can't imagine what you're going through. Would it help to tell us about him? What was his name? (Obviously don't say if you'd rather not but I know when my friend lost her baby she wanted to talk about him as her child).

So so sorry for your loss

Thinking about you today SadMummy and sending you good wishes.

@sadmummy85 you poor thing. I really feel for you. I understand how hard it must be. What you're feeling is totally normal. At the moment I can't be near babies, pregnant friends and feel sad/jealous when I see a pram. You'll always be your little one's mum. hugs

Thanks everyone. Life is just a fog of pain at the moment and those photos sent me over the edge! Feeling calmer today.

Just wanted to send hugs. I lost my daughter last October (stillborn) so can relate to your pain. Think we are the same age as well from your username. I've found the Sands forum a lifesaver personally. Here if you need to talk x

It's brutal isn't it. Other people seem to think I should be 'feeling better' by now.
TheFirstMrsDV · 07/05/2018 20:40
You poor love.
I am so sorry.
Of course you shouldn't be feeling 'better'.
However you are feeling is how you should be feeling.
It must be incredibly difficult for you

At just over 6 months in I personally don't ever think it "gets better." There's not a day goes by when I don't wonder what she would look like by now, what milestones she would have hit etc. However life does go on and time does help. But it's sort of like a new normal if that makes sense, where you will always be more fragile x

I’m so very sorry OP. X
