Difficult couple of weeks

You can be at the top of the world one minute and down in the deepest trench the next. I was re-reading my last post and remembering how excited (and scared) I was about our upcoming arrival.
Two weeks ago, I went for my ultrasound and found out the baby had died.
God lets these things happen for a reason; I have to believe that. The doctor said there were a lot of health problems showing in the scan and this is really for the best. I have to believe that, too.
So it's been a couple of really bad weeks. But, day by day, I'm not as depressed. Life does go on. I haven't been able to be around people I know, but I'm doing better with being around strangers. Does that sound weird? Most days, I get dressed and do school with Hope and run whatever errands are needed. I'm crocheting again. I know one day, a long time from now, I won't be as sad. I have to believe that.
Thanks for reading.
Hug your babies tight, even if they're grown up and taller than you.
Blessings.

  2. Hugs from me too. I never know what to say when someone has a bereavement. Just know that I care. Take care of yourself.

  3. Even though I do not know you (I love reading your blog!), my thoughts and prayers are with you. And you are so right about hugging your children- mine are 23 and 25 and it happened all in the blink of an eye! Again prayers are with you!

  4. I am so sorry to hear about your loss. I understand about the strangers..maybe it's because they don't ask any questions and then we don't have to give any answers. I don't know. We lost our baby at three months old, after many many heart surgeries. It wasn't easy..never want to go through anything like that again. The comfort I found was knowing that I will see him again and he is pain free and at peace..Hugs to you
