I'm so sorry you are going through this.
I've lost a 14 month old son and have had two miscarriages ( 14 weeks and 7 weeks).

Will continuing to get the email updates on a child who lived be helpful to you in the future? I ask because a friend who is currently pregnant asked me twice if the doctor knew *why* I miscarried and she wanted to get our families together for a visit. Although I think I've handled my recent miscarriage well, I was not up for spending the afternoon talking about her pregnancy when mine is over so I suggested we get together at a later date when she is over the morning sickness. Sometimes you have to avoid situations that you know will only make you feel bad.

It does come from out of nowhere sometimes, doesn't it. The love never goes away or changes, which is amazing, but it really hurts.

Jaymee, I'm sorry you've been having some rough days. I'm a little over a year into my grief and I do have to say that the days I breakdown are fewer and farther between. But none the less there are days when something triggers and I melt down. My friend lost her baby girl 25 years ago and she still cries every once in a while. I think it's natural but it stinks because it sneaks up on us. Hang in there and be gentle with yourself.

One of the kids that Moe was in the nicu with. HIs mom emails me updates. Shementioned kindergarten and I just lost it.
It made me physically ill. I thought I had my grief in check and wow, it opened up so much more pain.
Then today while I Was at a farm/water place with my daughter, I spotted a kid around what would have been Moes age. He was in a powr chair, traced and buttoned. He wanted to go in the water so badly. His mom put his feet in. I guess I had a weierd look on my face and she asked If I had a trach kid. I told her my story breifly, hugged her little boy and brought my kid into the bathroom so I could cry.
why are there so many reminders when I am trying to put my grief in a place thats tolerable for me. Does this ever end??? I miss him like crazy..The love never goes away...
