Neices Funeral
Mon, 04-12-2010 - 8:47am

Saturday was a rough day and probably the worest I have ever had. As you know my baby neice was stillborn on 4-3. We laid her to rest this past Saturday. I feel like a large chunk of my heart was buried with her. It was a very emotional service. They had viewing at 9am and it was horrible. She did not look good at all. I wish I wouldn't have seen her like that. I then watched them close the clasket and that was hard. I sobbed through the whole service. It really got me at the end when they sang the song Tears in Heaven by Eric Clappton. Oh my god that song never left my head and when I hear it in my head all I do is cry. I do not understand why God has taken her from us and why she was never given a chance.

I have placed my IVF cycle on hold since I want to make sure that I am emotional and physically ready when I move into it. I am hoping to be ready for a July cycle.

I hope to get caught up this week with everything that is going on. Thanks for being the support I need.

Big ((Hugs)), I want to tell you again that I'm so sorry for the loss of your niece. I can only imagine how hard the service was. It's never understandable why a child is taken so soon. I wish you and your family much comfort during this very difficult time.
I understand your need to delay your IVF cycle and giving yourself time to heal and feel emotionally ready to start. Sending my thoughts and prayers to you and your family.

Me (30), DH (30)

Boy, your story is bringing back memories. I can't even imagine having to listen to that song. I use to work in an office where someone played country music all the time. I probably cried 50% of the time and had to tell him to shut it off often. I don't know if it was your sisters baby or your brothers, but make sure you give alot of opportunity and initiate a conversation often for the mother to talk about her baby
