I am feeling pretty pathetic right now, for some reason today i am feeling really down. This may sound awful and please no one with an early loss take offense. I am in mourning of yet another loss last month, my 4th in a row. But instead of grieving for this baby, each loss brings back the feelings of losing Kai. Today I keep remembering the days leading up to his birth and passing and the long horrible 5 days I spent trying to give birth to him. I do ache for these babies but I hadnt felt them move or seen them wiggle on the ultrasound over and over. And now I feel like I may never have another baby.

I wouldnt concider you pathetic, rather grieving as we all have. A loss is never easy no matter what the situation. I am sorry you are going through this.

You feel how you feel and that is okay. Every loss is different and can effect us differently. The m/c's I had at 12 weeks and 10 weeks were much worse for me than the one that was around 5 or 6 weeks, and I never saw a baby on the u/s with any of them (my first 2 were dx'ed as b/o's).

You are not pathetic. Please don't feel that way.

I have grieved for each loss differently too. My most difficult loss was my third, not my fourth. I think it's because he was with us the longest. When we had the fourth miscarriage I almost felt like I was just waiting for the ball to drop. I was so scared I never felt hope. With our third baby, we saw the heartbeat, we were further along then we'd ever been before, we finally felt hope. For these reasons, I think his loss was the hardest.

Please don't be hard on yourself.

I agree with the other ladies - there is no reason to be hard on yourself or feel bad for your feelings. Sometimes we don't even know why we feel the way we do.... For me my 2nd mc was the hardest & it was my earliest. I think it all depends. I also think it is natural that your mc's would bring you back to missing Kai even more. Pain does that to us - it takes us back to all things painful... Many people find that when they loose a baby (moms or dads) that it can bring up many emotions & also bring up others they have lost. Anytime you are dealing with the pain of loss, everyone you have lost seems somewhat entwined to me. I could never really just grieve the one I lost, I always ended up having old feelings, memories & thoughts come up as well. It seems natural to me that your focus would be on Kai, particularly because these angels don't give you much of anything to hold onto unfortunately. It is hard to focus on someone you have never seen, felt, touched....

I am so sorry you have been through so much loss & so sorry you are having a particularly hard time right now. Please know we are here for you in whatever capacity you need us.

Much love!

You are ABSOLUTELY NOT pathetic. As all the women have stated above, I agree each loss can feel different. My second was the worst. It was the catalyst into a very deep depression for me. I am so sorry you are feeling the pain over and over. I wish there was more I/we could do. I hope talking helps. We're here to listen anytime.
