Losing your baby is never any easy event. Just 3 weeks ago I lost my little boy at 22 weeks due to severe PE and HELLP. I have good days and bad days...on my bad days, I do wish it were me instead of him. But I look back at what I went through, and something, I'm not sure what it was, but something inside me insisted I fight and I live. And here I am today... So I know I must go on and live my life the best that I can. I decided I want to try again in the future for a baby, and I will fight again. I will not let this disease or my grief conquer me. I'm stronger than that, and so is every woman who is here on this forum. Nobody wants to be here, by all means, but we are here, and we are stronger because we have each other here for support. You're a fighter, just like the rest of us, and you've had 8 more years of your life because of your strength. It will never be easy for any of us who've lost a baby, but know you have support. I joined a support group last week and found it was helpful to share my story and talk with other moms and dads who were going through the same grief. I hope you continue to be strong and remember your baby with love everyday. And give your son a big hug and kiss today (even though at 13 he may resist, give him a big one)!
