AnnC Posted July 12, 2006 Report Share Posted July 12, 2006 I just joined this board yesterday, and have been posting about my grief still sometimes seeming so fresh two years after losing my ex-husband, who was still a dear friend. But I have never really grieved the miscarriage I had, even though it was 25 years ago. In reading some grief sites, they have brought up that this is a legitimate grief, and honestly, I never thought of it, because it was a very early miscarriage, about 7 weeks. But I never remarried after my ex-husband and I divorced because he came out as gay. I had relationships, and fell in love a couple of times, but never found anyone who was the right person to marry.I have been fine with not having children for many years, and yet now that my ex has died, I feel so bad that we not only lost each other, but our only child, and there is nothing left of him, because he never had a child, and he was an only child and orphaned as a young adult. It just seems so sad, if the child had lived I would have that much of him. I find it hard to believe that after all these years (decades!) now I am grieving that baby.
