In fact ladies, with the help of the Lord, and the wonderful people that supported me, such as you guys, I made it through the week.

Thank you guys so much for such insightful, supportive comments.

Rachel,
Oh how I wish I could remove your pain. There are many here who understand. It's hard. Losing my son is the hardest thing that ever happened in my life. I hope you got through this week and that next week will get a little easier. I'll keep you in my thoughts and prayers.

Rachel,

I am so sorry about your precious baby. Anniversary dates, birthdates, due dates - all them and more are so hard. I am sincerly thinking of you.

HUGS,

We're here anytime you need us. Those days we looked so forward to are hard to deal with now. Take good care of you and do what feels right to you. My thoughts are with you and your angel.

Rachel, have you shared your story yet? Perhaps it would be a cathartic experience, and I sure would love to know more about Michael!

My heart goes out to you. The due date is the date everything is based around and it is so hard when your child is not with you. Hopefully once it has passed you will be able to start to look to the future.

Your due date is a really tough day. Mine was July 31 and it was awful, even the night before. In a way, though, it was good to get it behind me because once I did, I started feeling like I could start fresh and was no longer in this weird alternate reality time period where I should have been big and pregnant and miserable instead of skinny and no longer pregnant (and even more miserable!) I knew my due date was going to be hard, but it was harder than I expected too. I think it's a good day to get some rest if you can and let yourself feel as bad and cry as much as you need to. Tomorrow is a good day to start looking to the future. But don't punish yourself for wanting to wallow in grief today. You are entitled to feel however you need to. I know it doesn't seem like you will ever feel better, but you will. It takes time, though.
