Miscarriage/Pregnancy Loss

Mother's day is tough

I never realize...but as mother's day is approaching soon...it is tough. I thought i wouldn't cry again and had left my emotion behind. But as the media is all about celebrating mother's day, I am a mother without my child with me. I could have been 5 months pregnant by now.
Sending love and hugs to all the moms in this forum. You're all incredible and brave!

Re: Mother's day is tough

  • It's hard for me too....I would of been almost half way through my pregnancy now and it hurts so much. I already celebrated with my mom last weekend so really think I'm going to just stay at home all day and definitely stay away from social media. Hugs to you, hugs for all of us.
  • Yes, I hear you.  I hope you are able to do something nice for yourself on Sunday, whether it's getting out, seeing friends, watching Netflix all day, etc.  I think I'm going to avoid social media as best I can.

  • I'm dreading it a bit, too. Let's make sure we're all doing some really good self-care. Hugs to all <3
  • I just found out baby doesn't have a heartbeat at 9 weeks.. It's a strange thought process to go through (and I haven't begun to miscarry yet..) But I'm going to focus on my mom this weekend and her overwhelming love, support and tears as she deals with this with me. But it will still hurt!

  • It is a hard time especially after a recent loss. I've taken to turning the channels for the Mother's Day commercials, especially that new Johnson and Johnson one were the future child is talking to the mom about how she will change because of them. It is hard. I am celebrating with my mom on Saturday to avoid the big rush so Sunday my husband and I will be together and help each other through it.

    This is def a hard day. I lost my mom 4 years ago, and both my grans in the last two years, its hard but even harder considering my recent mc at 8w2d. Im going to spend time with my SO, go to dinner, and celebrate myself. Im still a mother, he may not have been placed in my arms but I carried him fod his whole little life. We are all mothers, even if our babies have wings. Im going to treat myself that day. We deserve it. We have all been through a lot and are way stronger because of it. We are strong and we are Mothers.

  • I was worried DH wouldn't understand but I mentioned today that it will be hard for me and he said he thought it would and he's been planning making me a nice breakfast Sunday morning so I'm just in tears and thankful that he gets it <3 I will be thinking of all of you and hope you all do something nice for yourselves and surround yourself with support <3
  • I am not looking forward to the "reminder" email from my dad tomorrow that I'll inevitably get if I don't call my mom early enough.

    Also, not 100% related, but in the same vein--a few nights ago we were out at dinner with some of DH's aunts & cousins.  I offered one of his cousins that we could move seats so she could sit next to her 2 young kids & husband, and she said she was fine standing for now because her "arms were empty."  She doesn't know about our loss, but it really hit me hard.

  • On Friday I had a coworker start to tell me happy Mother's Day then quickly said wait you aren't a mom. She didn't know but I still had to quickly walk away so I would not cry
