Guest Sherri Posted December 16, 2005 Report Share Posted December 16, 2005 I lost my little girl at five months of pregnancy. I delivered her at home, on August 24th. I nearly died myself from the hemorraging. Although, at times I can smile the nights seem to be the hardest. I was sleeping well for about a month, but now with the added stress of the holidays its more difficult. I tend to hold my grief in. She would of been born next month. The holidays are difficult, I have a twelve year old son and it takes every amount of strength I have to make this as pleasant of a time as possible. I do see a great therapist and my husband is pretty supportive, but as time goes on I feel that people think you should be over it by now so my outlets are limited. Is there anyone else out there going through this same thing right now during the holidays? It will be four months since her death on Christmas Eve. I know she is safe in heaven, but I miss her, I miss what could of been, etc. I also know there is no magic pill to make this pain go away that I feel sometimes, I get by knowing that a good day will happen again (the first time I had one it was wonderful), and I know that I must reach out more like I am now. I am so amazed by the emotions of grief, I have lost grandparents, pets, etc. That hurt,but the pain of losing a child no matter how old, you feel like you lost a part of your future, yourself. Its just learning to live without those dreams and hopes you had for their future that really gets you deep in your heart and soul. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
