How can you love someone you have never met?
How can you hurt so bad for something so tiny?
You can, I did.
A friend recently miscarried a baby at 15 weeks and it brought back the flood of emotions that comes with this type of loss. It SUCKS! (If you know me, you know I despise that word and will do everything to not use it).
How do you explain to your other kids what has happened?
How do you enjoy any future pregnancy without worrying about EVERY SINGLE twinge?
You hug, you don’t.
“It’s okay, mommy is really sad right now. She just needs to be sad for a little while”. You worry what people think when you are sobbing through your first Mother’s Day without the baby that you longed for so much. It SUCKS!
Three times my husband and I lost babies…. our first, fourth and fifth pregnancies. I joke we were 3 out of 6, but realistically, it SUCKS! Four months after I lost our first baby someone said to me “I thought you were pregnant?” REALLY? What rock have you been living under?!
If this happens to you, what can you do?
Hug, pray, cry….together. He lost a baby too.
If this happens to friends, how do you help?
Hug, pray, cry, make them dinner, don’t ask what happened, be there, understand that this time in their life SUCKS!
