My due date... :(

Hi everybody,

Tomorrow (Sept. 10), is my would-be due date... I had a m/c back in late January, and I guess I'm just needing to vent a little about how sad I am now that I could've been having my baby right away.
The good news is that I am pregnant again (I'm due early February). So in a way, I feel bad for being sad about my other baby, because I know I will have another in a few month's time, but I still feel like I need to grieve this final time. Since the m/c I knew this day was coming, and that it would be a really tough time, hopefully after tomorrow, I will have some closure.

Married my best friend - July 06'
Mommy to Liam Carter - May 07'
Lost our little angel - m/c January 08'
Our newest bundle, Brody Anderson! - February 09'

So sorry, mine is far away...and I think I will be able to cope if I am preg. again...I hope..although it may still be hard.
But your baby is in a better place. Happy and healthy, maybe our babies are playing together!
I hope your day gets better.

Hi Whiskers,

It's completely natural to be very aware of the date, even though you are happily pregnant again. Each pregnancy is separate, so you deserve to feel sad today, there's nothing wrong with that, in fact I'm sure it's completely natural.

Be nice to yourself today xx

I had a miscarriage 6 years ago and every year in October I think about how old my baby/child would be and wonder what he/she would look like.

I think it is very normal.

Take time for yourself today and for the baby that is playing in Heaven.

Re: My due date... :(

I'm so sorry to hear about all your loses. I lost my baby at 19 wks and have a due date coming up in late November. I always thought that time is supposed to heal the pain but in this case that statement is so untrue. I hope to find peace one day and understand that "things happen for a reason", another statement that bothers me a lot. The only way for me to find peace is to believe that my baby is safe and happy and nothing bad can ever happen again.
