  • The first miscarriage I had didn't cause me so much sorrow - I felt like it was an anomaly - especially since I have one beautiful little boy from a trouble free pregnancy. This time, it just seems CRUEL. It's so hard to take. I'm not much of a religious person, but I do feel that there is a soul that I lost - maybe two or maybe the same one twice. I know I sound crazy.

    Life really does just go on. Especially when you have a 4 year old child. Nothing against my child - - it just makes it harder to feel your emotions when you have to explain them to someone who is only 4. “mama why are you so upset?” “the baby isn’t going to come as soon as we thought it would”… My feelings are too complex to understand them myself. I can only hope to move through this and past this and on to a pregnancy and child that was much hoped for.
