I was an emotional basket case today and I don't know why. At work (Sears) there was a baby who screamed for like ten minutes. All I could think about was how I would give anything to be that poor frustrated mother.
Then at mom's she handed me an envelope with pictures of her cousin's baby. I promptly stated "no baby today." Luckily, she's very understanding having miscarried and lost my brother at 2 days old. My grandmother wasn't as understanding, but dropped it quickly.
Next was my niece's school play. It was all I could do not to bawl at the thought of never seeing Gwen and Dominic in a play.
Of course, then my mind went to Christmas...
Does it ever stop?
Thanks to Jaidynsmum for my siggy!

As days go on I don't think it gets easier it just gets more bareable. These were our children and I remember after my losses just hating pregnant woman and not hating the fact that it felt like everyone was pregnant or having kids but me.
No. I don't think it ever really stops. I think it gets easier with time but I don't think it will ever go away. You are going to have good days and bad days and I have learned to embrace the bad ones. It means you are remembering your babies. Nothing wrong with that. Nothing wrong with being sad because they are not here and the holidays are always the worst...as are EDDs and angelversaries. But I always feel better after having a bad day where I feel like I "bonded" with my babies again by mourning for them...if that makes any sense.
