I am 28 years old, and I lost my mom to a very long battle to cancer when I was 14. I know a long time ago. I found out at the beggining of the month that I'm pregnant, and it was super bittersweet because my moms birthday was then.. I always struggle with that day, and the day she passed away. It still hurts my heart, but it did get alot easier.. I started taking alot of comfort in knowing that she's an angel with a much greater purpose then we could ever comprehend. That being said, since I found out I'm really struggling with the loss of her, 14 years later. She taught me more then I ever realized, and being her only daughter.. and my first pregnancy I wish she was around for her guidance, and to be excited with me. I try to take comfort in knowing she's watching over my unborn child, but it's not enough right now..
maybe it's the hormones that are making it hard right now.

Have never been so in love before.
Hey there, I very much know what you're going through. I lost my mother to cancer 2 weeks ago (June 26th, a day before my husband's birthday...), I am having a hard time trying to accept it since it all happened in a span of 6 months. Right now I need her the most, and I am unable to get in contact with her or hear her tell me how everything will be okay. Not only that but she was the only one in my family who was helping me to get the baby furniture, now that she's gone I lost my best friend and my mother. Even though I lost her now that I am 22, I had lived all my life with her until 6 months ago when I decided to move out because I knew that if she passed away and I didn't grow up, I wouldn't have been able to keep going, she was my everything after all.
I hope you're feeling a lot better since, it's hard, no one can move on but they can learn to live every day. As I said, I'm still trying to cope...
I'm so sorry for both of your losses. My mom passed June 8, 2013. She had been fighting breast cancer for 3 years and went in for surgery and got a bad Staph infection which is what killed her. It has been a rough 6 months without her. I am an only child and was always very close to my parents. I'm now 32 and have 3 kids. It breaks my heart to think that she won't be able to watch them grow up. Hopefully the pain dulls over time. But lately it has been so painful!
