I just hope and also pray that you will find peace somewhere in the middle of it all. I know you look at Braden and you find moments of hope. Thank you for letting us all in and keeping us in the loop.

    I hope you are able to heal as quickly as possible and that eventually any fear of trying again is eclipsed by the desire to try again (that makes sense to you, I hope).
    Good luck on Tuesday hun and don’t be afraid to reach out to people for support.

I get where I am where there simply is likely no hope of any baby, ever, but yours is different, harder to go through it again and already that far along. I wish I could do or so something, but I know there is nothing really to change it. Please just know that I’m thinking of you, sending hugs and wishing you peace. You *will* come through the other side, and you will be stronger for it, which isn’t much consolation now.

    Please, please be gentle with you for awhile, OK?

  • I can’t imagine. I just can’t imagine. Your words take me a bit closer to being able to imagine what you are going through, but I still can’t imagine…..I’ve never even met you but I feel like I know you through your blog and when I read your post about losing this baby….so late into the pregnancy after having lost your 2nd….my jaw-dropped and I walked away in disbelief. I thought: “Does that ACTUALLY happen?! Really?! How fucking cruel that she has lost two when Joe Blow Childabuser can make 6 with no problems.” Between your loss and my almost-two-year-old being in the hospital for over 2 days this week, I’m having a really, really hard time maintaining my hope that things will ultimately be okay in the end. Write what you need to write to heal. Don’t beat yourself up (like you did last time) about only writing about your loss. What matters is your healing….take care of you.

I know it doesn’t help much, but please know that there are lots of women who have faced what you’re facing and we are all thinking about you and wishing we could make it better, because no one in the world should have to go through that.

  • Lotus, what do you need from us? We will give it, whatever it is.

    I know what you mean about staying up late. I think it was, for me, also the hope that I would fall fast asleep and not allow my thoughts to creep into my brain in the vacant still night. Also, I think I wanted to put off going to sleep – that time that is so alone, so quiet, so dark.

    It feels very condescending for me to tell you that it will get better. Who am I to tell YOU? You were so there for me. I wish I had some magic words, but really there aren’t any.

    The only thing I did that helped was that I OD’ed on funny movies. I tried to do anything to just take my mind off of it all. I wanted to deal with the pain and the reality, but not just then. I wanted to avoid it for a while. When I was ready to cry, I did. I know you will too. Although I can’t be close, please find someone you can hug.

    I wish there were some kind of grief aspirin I could give you to make the pain go away. I wish there were a shortcut, so you could take a quick route to healing this time. It just seems too hard sometimes, doesn’t it? Love heals…but oh so slowly.

    In the meantime, there will be (and are!) small moments of sun coming through the clouds. (Do I remember a post from last time about going to the park with Braden?) Anyway. Doesn’t make it all better, but you have your beautiful son, your loving husband, your awesome readers (especially me) and a hundred little chihuahuas with Santa hats in your comments. How can that not make you smile just a little?

  • It’s Tuesday morning, and I held out my arms and squeezed my eyes shut and imagined myself hugging you, trying to push how much I care for you right into you. I hope that the collective force of all of us thinking and praying or whatever else we all believe in, I hope it arrives in a big wave and washes over you. And I hope it helps, even a little. Love you, Lotus.

  • I am very, very sorry.
    Like so many of your readers, I have been there too. And I have a happy ending, who is now 12.
    But none of that really matters right now, and honestly? It shouldn’t. This is your grief, your mourning, your loss. I am just one of the many that have been to that abyss, and even now it only takes a beautifully written post like yours to slam us right back to that place and those feelings.
    I am so very, very sorry.

    I am so sorry. I can’t claim (as no one can) to know how you feel in *any* capacity, but if writing is theraputic for you then I promise I will be reading.

    My heart hurts at reading your words. I’m crying so hard I can barely write this, and I can’t read what I have written. I’m so sorry you have to go through this again. I wish I could make it all better for you.

  • My heart aches for you, it really does. I’ve been where you are. I lost my first son at 26 weeks and went through much of what you describe not seeing the heart beat any longer. The feelings that follow the loss of a child during pregnancy are dark and hopeless….but one day you will find peace. I promise you this. It has taken me a very long time to find hope in pregnancy but as each day passes, then months and years, the pain lessens.

  • Oh Sweetheart…

    Thats all I could say when I read your post.

    It will heal, but it will take time. Time is a funny thing, when the world seems perfect we want time to go slowly and when things fall apart we want time to go so quickly to take us into a new phase of life so we do not have to deal with that one anymore.

    Sometimes I tell myself that this time next week I will feel better, this time next month I will be healing and this time next year I reckon I will be ok.

    I know it will seem like forever but you will heal, please hang in there. My Sister in Law miscarried and is a big believer of ‘it wasnt meant to be’. It wasnt meant to be, and there would be reasons for that.

    Hold your men close (including your dog).

    December 20, 2008
  • sweet sweet Lotus . . . I do know the pain and sorrow and heartache and anger and frustration and utter turmoil that you are experiencing right now. I also know that each woman that experiences this . . . this, I don’t have a word for what I ‘think’ this is . . . deals with it differently.

    I can say that when I had my first miscarriage(11 weeks) I was beyond sad, heartbroken, but hopeful . . . I immediately got pregnant again and immediately miscarried(8 weeks) again, this time I was so upset and mad, this time I was mad, at what I didn’t know . . . repeat the next month, pregnant again, two months later, miscarried again. I was told that I had to wait for 6 months since I had miscarried 3x’s in a row. I was devastated, beyond depressed and really just didn’t know what to do with myself. I was consumed with grief. I waited my 6 months and was pregnant again within 2 months. I was CONSUMED with not losing that baby. I didn’t move for fear of losing that baby.

    BUT, the baby survived and I survived . . . and my heart healed (as it does with time). Dear Lotus, I wish I could take away the pain you are feeling, but what I can offer is this . . . keep trying . . . there is hope!

    December 22, 2008
  • I’m so, so sorry. :(

    I just suffered two miscarriages in a row over the past four months (one at 9 weeks in Sept 08 with a d&c the following week, one at 6 weeks during/after Christmas a couple weeks ago). The one thing that keeps me going is my son, who is almost 2 1/2. He is my source of hope, as I know your son will be for you.

    Take care of yourself. You’re in my prayers.
