Late Term and Child Loss


Last night I was looking thru Facebook and Instagram and seeing updated pictures of all my friends who are due to deliver their babies around the same time I was (EDD 12.8.13) and I couldn't help but to feel some jealousy towards them. I know I shouldn't show envy, but I can't help it... I really feel like it isn't fair.

Re: Jealousy

  • What you are feeling is totally normal after suffering a loss like we all have. Jealousy is normal reaction to this situation. We are all here for you.

  • Sometimes you may need to block pictures, feeds, or status updates from certain people. That is okay. Do what you need to do to make it through a day. Blocking them in the short term does not mean you won't be able to unblock them later. Some days its all about survival mode.

  • I didn't even consider blocking temporarily! I think I'll try that! Thanks! And I'm glad it's a normal feeling... I felt so wrong for feeling jealous.
  • what you are feeling is very normal.  my therapist suggested I get off of facebook and instagram for a while...and thought it was really hard it helped soooo much in the beginning.  I wasnt' ready to see and handle everything at that point.  A few months later I was in a place that I didn't feel as tortured by all of the posts and got back on.

  • Your right, its not fair. Everyone should have their babies here with them. I have felt that way also and it still will come at moments. Not sure when it won't anymore but what you are feeling is normal. I wish you some sort of peace.

    Completely normal.  I still have issues sometimes.  I avoided FB like the plague and made DH open any envelopes that came in the mail that looked like they could be picture Christmas cards (I was due 12/3/11).  It does get better.

  • ***Siggy Warning***

    The jealousy (and anger) toward those who are still pregnant or announce a pregnancy is completely normal.  It isn't that you aren't happy for them, it's that you ache for what they still have. I highly recommend temporarily hiding people from your news feed or even taking a FB break. It is so incredibly hard. ((HUGS))

  • Your feelings are completely normal. I had to hide half of my FB friends for a long time after losing Eliott. I still feel jealous sometimes of my friends who have kids around the age he would have been. Hugs!

  • As PPs have said, jealousy is completely normal.  Sometimes I have so much anger over losing Izzie, I don't know where to direct it.  I found taking a break from FB helpful after my loss.  Now I have hidden about half my friends list so I don't have to see pics I don't want to.  Sending you lots of (((hugs)))

  • I retreated from my family members with children on Facebook. I'm sure that they understand. I also had to "Unlike" those baby pages that I frequented.

    Part of it is that I want to protect them from my misery. During my baby's funeral, I tried to reach out to pick up my 1 year old baby cousin, but I think I scared the crap out of her because she swatted me away. LOL
