I am so in love with my little girl and so happy to finally have her in my arms.

I didn't expect for the resurfacing of grief for the baby I lost in April that should have been born in November. The night after I had Katie I put my hand on my belly and realized that I wouldn't feel her move around inside me anymore. Since she was 3 weeks early I wasn't really prepared/ready to be done with my pg. The feelings of loss I experienced last April came back to me, although Katie was in a bassinet next to my bed. Those feelings went away after a few days, but it did take me by surprise.

Has anyone else have a similar experience?

I don't remember having any feelings over the babies I lost before DD was born, but I do remember feeling a complete emptiness and sadness about 2 days after she was born because she wasn't inside me anymore and I couldn't feel her moving. I felt so alone and empty. It was really hard for me to get over, but I did and I know I'll feel the same with this baby.

I did, however, have a whole day crying spell with this pg because of a baby I lost when I was 17. I just cried and cried. I felt so sad all of the sudden.

I'm glad that your LO is doing well and that you're starting to feel better :o)

Thank you- I am glad to know I am not the only one to feel this way. I know it will pass, especially when I am cuddling with Katie and feel so grateful to have her in my arms.

I remember having some of those same feelings - I decided at the time that it hit me once Will was here

Thanks Megan. You are right- I think it hit me because now I really know what I am missing. It does get easier every day, though.
