Re: I lost my baby boy at 29 weeks pregnant
Hello mom to Peanut:
I am so, so sorry about your little Peanut. I feel so very sad for you and your loved ones. Know that you are not alone, and that your little one has touched people's lives, just by existing for 29 weeks. God has not forgotten about you or your baby. If he has given all the stars a name, think how much more He cares about your little one. (Psalms 147:4)One thing you always need to remember is that you are and always will be a mother. That is why your body is going to need a little time to catch up to what has happened.
I agree with mmisty. Right now the important thing is keeping your sanity. Even though you might not feel like you want do anything, its vital to let your mind heal. Instead of going over everything in your head over and over again, "what ifs", try to get away for a little awhile every day. Don't feel guilty about going to do things, go shopping, go exercise with friends at a gym or do something else with your friends. I don't mean you shouldn't cry, because crying is a way of dealing with the loss of your baby. But also try to let your mind rest right now, as much as you can, don't beat yourself up. Then one day, you will feel able to cope. It won't take the pain away, but you'll be able to cope. Then one day the pain will be a little less, then a little bit less. Then you will be able to go back to those feelings. But right now, its too fresh. So just give yourself time, let your body heal. Just like that old expression says: One day at a time.
