Labor day weekend 2010 I had to terminate my pregnancy due to a chromosomal abnormality. I am sad right now. Since then I've had 2 miscarriages and multiple chemical pregnancies. Plus I don't do too well on 9/11. And I really should visit my friend with a newborn but I just don't think I can handle it this week. Having a rough time. Maybe need to find a therapist.

Sharon,

I am so sorry this is a difficult time for you... <<<Hugs>>>>. I too am having memories of being pregnant exactly a year ago, and dealing with the loss.  I just keep thinking my time will come.... Also sometimes we just need a lot of support to get through the day but no harm in seeking therapy if it helps you. WIll be praying for you the next few days...

Sharon, I'm sorry you are down. Just know it is normal and it isn't selfish to grieve your own losses. Sending lots of (((HUGS))) to you. We all understand and are here for you. Glad to know you aren't giving up just yet.

I think its very hard to end your fertile years with a loss. Its not the happy ending like in fairytales. That said, I am still here and not giving up quite yet.
Krista and everyone-thanks for sharing. Its so nice to have support and understanding.
My baby had trisomy 13 btw. I didn't have miscarriages tested.
I feel guilty for being sad because this woman I knew died in WTC in 9/11 and never got to even try for a family. You try to put your grief in perspective KWIM.

I'm so sorry Sharon.  I lost my son in April because of Trisomy 18.  Chromosomal abnormalities can be so devastating to both the babies and us:smileysad:  I'm still feeling sad over my baby's loss too.  Monday was the first day of school for my kiddos and my youngest started kindergarten.  I had planned to do all my finishing touches getting ready for the baby once my kids started school...Everyone I ran into kept saying, "Aren't you excited!  All your kids are in school now and you are a free woman!  What ever will you do with yourself?"  It was so hard to smile and agree with them, when all I wanted to do was cry because I REALLY wanted to be getting ready for Will's arrival--not be "a free woman".  I did finally make it to my car where I cried and cried.  I made it home and cried some more.:smileysad:  Plus, I am surrounded by friends and neighbors who are all having babies within weeks of my due date....I haven't been able to go to any of their showers and seeing the newborns will be hard too. 

Again, I'm so sorry you are feeling sad today.  Just know that you are not alone!

Love,

Krista
