Feeling down
I thought I was doing a lot better with dealing with my mc but then something will come along and knock me back again.

A relative gave me a present today - a tiny knitted baby jacket that has been in the family for a while. She promised that it wasn't a "hint" for me and that she wanted me to have this family heirloom for when the time comes but it broke my heart. I should have a baby right now to put in that jacket but instead I tucked it away in my box of baby things along with my first and last ultrasound and the little pair of booties that a friend knitted for me when she found out I was pregnant.

Luckily I didn't cry in front of her but I just feel so sad and empty inside. She didn't know about the mc - almost no one did so of course she wouldn't have known how it would make me feel but it still hurts so much even after all these months.

Re: Feeling down
Aww, that was nice of her. But of course it made you sad. You did the right thing. Tuck it away. Busy yourself with other things.

I'm sorry there isn't a way to make the hurt and sorrow go away. But we wouldn't be loving humans if there were I think.

I'm so sorry. Little reminders make me feel down too. I just try to get some sunshine, and find something to do that I enjoy. Hope you feel better soon.

I'm so sorry, I can imagine how tough that must have been :( It's a lot harder when most people don't know about a m/c. She obviously meant well and it was a sweet gesture, but what you've been through, hard regardless!

Lots of <HUGS>

Thanks for the kind words, ladies. Some days are harder than others but it helps to have people who understand. :grouphug:

I'm so sorry. That does sound like it hurt. The hurt doesn't feel any less based on intention. Each day you'll get a little stronger. (Hugs)

Awww, that's so sweet, but so sad. I'm so sorry hun. I hope you are able to move along with a baby you can take home and put in that jacket very soon. Big hugs.
