A thread for all the warrior women

Who are struggling today like I am with losses or infertility and no living children.
I should have been thirteen weeks today and had vague romantic notions that I would announce. Obviously it wasn’t to be.
I was also newly pregnant this day in 2018 and that ended with the traumatic loss of twins. So, two (expensive, IVF) pregnancies, three babies lost, mothers’ day is killing me.
To all the women out there who just want today to be over, you’re not alone.

I love this.
Well said @LividLaughLove. Very well said.
We are all in this struggle together and we all find today to be really hard. I should have been nearing 20 weeks today with my first and I just learned this morning I am miscarrying again.
Love and strength and peace and light to all. We will get through this and tomorrow will be a better day xxx.

Oh dear god @sadtoday21 I am so sorry to hear that. I wish I had words of comfort but nothing can make this better.
The Miscarriage Association run monthly support groups all over the country. Maybe one day talking to others could be support.

and love to you all.
I have been there for several years, now fortunately out the other side.
Be kind to yourselves. Eat all the cake/chocolate, drink all the wine/gin. Cry. Whatever gets you through.

I found out at my 12 week scan on Monday that the baby stopped growing at 6 weeks. I had thought today might be the day we shared our news with our families but sadly it was just not meant to be. Instead I will be putting on a brave face and acting like I'm not broken inside and living in fear of my surgery tomorrow.
I came on here to seek some comfort on this incredibly hard day and I was met with multiple threads full of kindness and support. I just want to say that I think you're all amazing and I'm sending you all love and strength to get through today in whatever way you can. ❤️ xx

Thank you @keeponrunnjng85. I tried to think of something special to do, failed, and now am going to go for the world’s slowest head-clearing run in nature and then have to do some work for tomorrow.
Temptation to drink is HUGE but I have another IVF cycle imminent and a big day at work tomorrow so can’t wait even do that

It's very difficult isn't it, I cant wait for the day to pass. This time last year i was 20 weeks pregnant, so happy about all the special days we would share together.
Instead I'm here without her, with the anniversary of her birth just around the corner.
Sending love and thoughts to all today

I have been miscarrying all weekend. Should’ve been ten weeks tomorrow and was going to tell MIL today ☹️ Big hugs to everyone
