Hi ladies, as time goes on I find myself lurking on this board more and more so I thought I'd say hello. I sometimes post in the TTCAL board but I feel odd posting this there. I sometimes even feel weird bringing it up to anyone besides DH, but I know you guys will understand. Tomorrow is 5 months since Liam was born/died and 4 days later (7/20) was his due date.

It's been so hard these past few days and basically since July started. It's hard to get out of bed or do anything. I don't know how I will be able to make it through the rest of the month. It really sucks and it seemed to be getting better up until now.

Any tips on making it through the due date?

Avery. 4/11

Do what you need to do in the moment. If you feel like you need to cry, cry. If you feel the urge to get up and get out of the house, do it. If you work, take time off if needed. Any respectable employer should understand that. There is no right or wrong way to make it through your due date. If you know there are certain things or people that trigger you in a negative way (unsupportive friends/family) avoid them until you are feeling up to it. The last thing you need is somebody not understanding why you are so down.

Take care.

Special thanks to AlexAiden Mommy for my precious siggy

completely agree amanda said it the best

and to add to what Claire said - the first year of firsts are the hardest - that doesn't mean the second and third or even 10th are just easy - but the first time each "holiday" or special date passes, your heart will tug extra hard.

hang in there
don't let others tell you to "get over" because you just can't.
