As with everyone else here, I am so sorry. I too lost a son in February and it was the hardest thing that ever happened to me. I pray that as time goes on, you will hurt less. Grief is a long and difficult process. My husband and I have been going to a support group for parents who have lost babies once a month since my son died. It has been a great help to us. Especially since we grieve so differently. I think this forum is also a great help.

As many here have said, try very, very hard not to blame yourself. You did not choose to have preeclampsia. You did nothing to make it happen. This is not your fault.

I am so very sorry for your losses. I too lost my son to this horrible disease and there are just no words to say how very sorry I am for what you have had to go through. It gets easy to blame yourself sometimes but please don't, there is nothing you did to cause this and nothing you could have done to prevent it. It's an evil disease that seems to often strike with no rhyme or reason.

Please know that we are all here for you. You are in my prayers.

I am very sorry for your loss and all that you are still going through healthwise. I too am still on meds and it has been almost six months since he was born (five months today since he died). I also blame myself for many things, but being on this forum has helped. As much as I wish that none of us had to go through this it helps to know that I am not alone in my experiences and my feelings about them. Take care of yourself and we are hear for you.

Oh dear Felisha,
I am so sorry to learn of your loss. The pain is undescribable, and sadly, many of us here know that pain all to well. It is not your fault, please do not own the blame. We all wish we could be happy, healthy moms but we can't. I lost my son in 1995 and 9 years later I still feel the pain. A mother always will. Try to be strong for your child now and know you did the best you could. Our bodies are so very fragile, many just don't know it. Take Care.
