I'm 15+2 and due on 11th September, having lost my baby boy at 16 weeks on 10th September last year, so it's going to be a strange bittersweet time in September if all goes well this time. I could end up having this one on the anniversary of my loss...
I am just taking each day as it comes. So far so good, and I just have to have faith that this time will be different
Sorry for your loss I have the same dilemma...this baby is due two days after the date of the loss of my second baby and I am hoping that all goes well too
It is totally normal to feel this way, for all of us!
I have been struggling with this pregnancy since the beginning. I even broke down crying when my MIL gave me baby clothes as a gift, bc I was so worried the baby would never get to wear them.
And, like several of you, the dates are so ironic. My mc'd baby was due March 28...and my SIL will be having a c-section that day, which makes the date even more painful; to be reminded every year when celebrating my nephews birthday. Also, I am due Aug 1, and my mc started on Aug 5.
Its just plain hard.
I m/c'ed last February, and come September, when I was due with that LO, I struggled a bit. Even though I was going through another pregnancy and hoping that this would be my rainbow baby, I still felt awful about the one that m/c'ed.
Then again this February, I felt just as sad. I knew that it would be tough.
I've always been a bit nervous with this pregnancy, and even now, I have a lot of worrisome "what if"s that cross my mind.
My saving grace is that if I feel worried, I have people to turn to. My mom had a few m/c's, as did my BFF's wife. Both of them have been very supportive of me when I've wanted to break down and cry.
And with my cousin and a friend both having their babies recently, I worry that mine will never come out. (I'll be 39 weeks tomorrow.)
Not long for you now!
It's good you have people around you. I don't actually have anyone close to me who experienced the same. The only person was my mother in law but she passed away 2 weeks before Xmas x
