DH always took our losses very hard. After my first early loss I think it took him much more time to heal than it took me. He'll still sometimes say "Do you realize our first baby would have been _ old now?"
After we lost Sophie we had a very fine balancing act of grief. There would be days where he'd walk in the house and I would be curled up in a ball, crying. He would come over and hold me and tell me it would be ok. The next day I'd have to do the same for him. The loss of her almost destroyed us both.
So I guess I'd say short term he healed much more slowly. But I think my losses have left a much more profound, deep imprint on me. I think Grace healed him from the pain of Sophie, as much as anyone can ever be healed from something like that. I don't think I can ever forget what holding my 16 week old baby felt like.
