Am I in the right place? — The Bump
Late Term and Child Loss

Am I in the right place?

My 21 month old son died in a freak accident while I was pregnant with my now 1 month old, is this an appropriate place to share? I feel bad talking to my birth board, greif and loss are such ugly scary things that no one wants to look at and who can blame them. People in real life avoid me now like having a dead child is contagious and I am just looking for a place to not feel so alone.

  • Sadly you are in the right place. I'm so sorry about the loss of your son.  I lost my 3 1/2 year old daughter last year and everyday is a struggle.  Big hugs

  • Also, you are not alone. We are here and we have all lost a child at some point, we understand how hard it is when others choose to pretend it doesn't happen. But it does and we can't forget, nor do we want to forget our sweet children.

  • Thank you. It is nice to find people to relate to, although I wish it wasn't this way for any of us.

    I echo what everyone else has said.  I am so sorry for your loss.  I hope you find a lot of support here - I know this board has gotten me through some very dark times. Sending love.

  • I'm so sorry for your loss.  I'm not a member of this board -- I actually post on the miscarriage/pregnancy loss board so I'm not even sure how I stumbled upon your post, but once I read it, I felt compelled to reply.  

    I can't imagine losing a child, let alone losing a child while pregnant. My heart breaks for you just thinking about it.  Your post really struck a nerve with me because after having a couple miscarriages in the last year, I totally understand what it's like for people who you used to be close with to  suddenly avoid you because they don't know what to say and feel "awkward." Or they're super supportive for about two weeks but lose interest once a few months go by and you're still grieving.  It's terrible to feel isolated at a time when just a little bit of compassion would go a long way.  It makes me so sad to think about you having to go through this on top of already having such a painful and terrible loss.   

    So I guess my reason for posting is to let you know that there's someone else out there who is thinking about you and that you are not alone.  I wish I could do something more.
