Our most recent due date is next month, in September. Even though it is our due date for our 7th loss it still seems to be hitting me hard.
The closer September gets the more emotional I get. Sigh… I wish I could say that it gets easier but the due date is hard no matter how many losses you’ve had.
Each new due date that passes is hard and it’s so hard to explain to others who keep saying things like “why do you get so sad about due dates?” and “Aren’t you used to it by now?”
I can say without a doubt that comments like this are not helpful, they hurt just as much as people ignoring your losses.
Please remember that people who have had repeated losses still can get sad and emotional about holidays, due dates, and other big days.
