So this Sunday would be the DD for my first baby. I'm so grateful that I'm pregnant again because I'm not sure I could get through it if I wasn't. I'm having conflicting emotions where some moments it's all I think about and some moments I feel at peace. I think it's also ironic that this baby is due at the same time where I lost my first. Almost like my baby is giving me a reason to smile this year. I don't know, I guess I'm just a little emotional about it. Help me get through this weekend!
It's ok to have conflicting emotions!!! I think that we all do. One of my DDs was January 10th, and I was thrilled that I got to spend this one pregnant. Then I felt guilty, like I wasn't honoring that loss...then I felt guilty that I wasn't being happy enough for this one.
Pregnancy is an emotional rollercoaster, so we're all entitled...not that we wouldn't be, anyway.
I'm sorry that this weekend is going to be difficult for you, but I think that it was a nice way to think of it in believing that your baby was giving you a reason to smile.
Hi there...I certainly can relate to your "conflicting" emotions about it all!! When I passed my first angel's EDD, I wasn't yet pregnant again, and that was very difficult, as it just seemed to remind me of what I didn't have. But for my 2nd angel's EDD, I actually had my big u/s that day. It was so strange- seeing the perfect little being inside of me and knowing that on that same day that my 2nd baby was due.
Waiting for #2!
I completely understand. I am so happy to be pregnant again, but don't want to feel like I've forgotten my little angel. I'm similar to you in that I am due (9/17) around the same time I lost my 2nd baby (9/13). I was due with baby #2 on 5/14/06...which just happens to be Mother's Day. I'm worried I will still be grieving the loss of that baby when I should be celebrating Motherhood with my little girl and baby#3. I'll be thinking of you. We'll never forget the babies we didn't get to hold in our arms.

you are in my thoughts. It will be a hard day. But I also felt a sense of closure after my Due Date. Like I finally could put my baby to rest. Hard to explain. I hope you get that same feeling of closure.
I had a difficult time when my dd came around. Thats when I knew I wanted to start trying again. Before that I wasn't ready at all. It took 4 months before I got pregnant and now my new dd is one day form my last bebe. I feel the stress. The sorrow, I'm not sure....
It hard sometimes because you think I should have the bebe allready instead of feeling impatient and waiting through the next.
My due date is April 3rd, i'm dredding it because i wont be pregnant by the time it comes. Keep yourself busy and light a candle for your little one, and double count your blessings, it's great that your pregnant again, keep your head up
