So I know I've had too many glasses of wine (perk of early weaning and having a baby who sleeps in a cot :shock: :wink: ) but I wanted to let you ladies know how important you were in all of this. One of the biggest things for me at the time was the idea that I had imagined the whole thing; made the whole thing up. You ladies helped me to process this into something real. I needed to convince my brain that this actually happened. Thank you.

Id never seen that YouTube clip, very touching. I dont think I will ever run out of tears either.
Few ppl IRL knew about my baby, & of those who did, only my mum asked how I was around my due date. I think everyone else forgot. Its sad but its life I guess. I know I will never forget & one day, I will let other ppl IRL know that I lost my baby.

I know the feeling of it not being real. Having had 2 very early losses that only because I knew my body well were picked up and I got positive tests. It does not seem real at all and because they were so early no one knew. Makes it very hard to talk about to people let alone have people that care. You almost are expected to not care as it was so early. The reaction from people is totally different than the bub I lost at 13w however you still get people who don't care or what to know. I rarely talk about them anymore. However I was heartened when I went for an assessment at the gym and the guy doing the assessment was very chatty and had the same humor as me. He told me his partner just suffered a loss and was struggling, I shared a little with him and he was very moved and thanked me because he and his partner felt very alone no one wanted to talk with them.

It's still such an isolating subject.
