What Happens Next…

My due date has come and gone. My husband, daughter, and I cut a cake made in his honor.  I don’t even know where to go from here. I don’t have the anxiety of a looming due date in front of me, but I also have no baby in my arms.

I almost feel like there’s nowhere else to go but forward. Every day is a little easier and every day I feel a little more “normal.”

Friends are still getting pregnant. I still am not. And I never will be again now that we’ve decided our biological family is complete.

The world kept turning on 5/31/17 when mine stopped and it has continued to turn through this emotional time. There will always be setbacks, but even more promising is knowing good days, great days even are coming.

Hi, Everyone. My name is Jessica! I'm sad, but excited to join this supportive community. I have a 5 year old and have been married for almost 4 years. My hopes in joining this expressive community is to acknowledge not only my feelings, but help others acknowledge theirs as well as their loss and provide hope for the future.

Thanks for sharing Jessica. It’s going on over s year for me and I still have very very bad days. What makes it harder is my husband doesn’t want me to talk to him about it. Its hard.

    Miscarriage is such a personal occurrence for each person. My husband is very private, but once I finally explained to him the pain I was going through and that I couldn’t remain silent, he started opening up a little. He also had to understand that I had to grieve my own way to heal. His pain was seeing my pain, not the loss of our child. It’s different for everyone, but I hope he will allow himself to feel for the benefit of your marriage. Sending love and peace.
