So, so very sorry. I have been lurking for a while, but have been deep in my own life issues and haven't been commenting out there. I know how much this meant, and extend my sympathies for your loss.

Its frustrating to hear of the baby's death - and even more baffling to hear of the initial treatment provided in the ER - 2 hours waiting-time for a high-risk pregnancy is unforgivable. This simply sucks for you guys. I am so sorry to hear about your loss!

I am sad with you. I know you must be weary, which makes this post mean so much more. Others will read it and relate. Seems to be at trend with you ... during the rough patches you find a way to be helpful... We are all blessed to know you...

It's all going to be okay.

There is nothing, NOTHING, that anyone can say that will make this better. When I miscarried in September, we were completely shocked. My first pregnancy had been a dream (although I was SICK the entire time), so we couldn't believe it when one moment I was pregnant, the next moment our baby was gone. My heart has a big, gaping hole in it that is filled with love and longing for my baby I'll never know. My arms ache to hold my red-faced infant. One day my daughter might have a brother or a sister, but not the brother or sister my body was not strong enough to support.

Feel everything. Feel the loss. Feel the tears. Feel the love of Elias and Nick. Just spend as much time as possible feeling. Sometimes it hurts so bad you don't want to feel any more. Feel through those moments. Smiles do return. I don't know how. I didn't believe it myself. Even now, several months later, the pain still returns with such a violent swift kick to my gut that I lose my breath, but it's gone as quickly as it arrived.

I'll check back on you.

Thank you for your words. I had a miscarriage on Jan. 4th. I was 5 weeks along and didn't know how to deal with it. It seemed that one minute I was thrilled to be pregnant and the next it was all taken away. I've been following your blog for several monthes now and never imagined it would be such a comfort during this loss in my life. While my faith and prayer have been my refuge I needed to know that it's ok to feel the grief and saddness that I was feeling. Your words showed me that I'm not alone.

Jill, I'm sorry to hear that you miscarried on the 4th, as well. We do need to grieve b/c the moment we learn we are pregnant, we move ourselves aside to make room for the baby. Our relationship begins long before we meet. take care of yourself and thanks for writing, Christy
