Re: Miscarriage at 17 Weeks
I'm so sorry that you have gone through this. My bag of waters broke at 20 weeks, however my baby didn't die till hours later, so I can't answer all your questions. I can tell you that it was probably the hardest experience of my life. You will need to grieve and it takes a long time. Unfortunately most of the time there are no clear answers as to why (I'll never know why) but you have to find a way past needing every answer. I think spending time with your baby was a great thing, I cherish the moments I had with Hannah. Hang in there and try to find someone that you can talk to about your baby. I had a friend that I talked to, she would let me talk or cry whatever I needed. I also wrote in a journal for a while, which helped give me a place to say the things that I felt to awful to share with a person. I'm not sure if this helps, but know that you are not alone and it will get better.
