Does anyone NOT think about how many months etc?

Unless someone was due around my EDD and I see or talk to them, I really don't think about how far along I SHOULD be, or when my Drs appointment should've been or I would have have an x month old by now.  I was sad around my EDDs, but I guess my pregnancies never felt that real since I had spotting with each loss, so I kind of stopped thinking about what could of been after it was over.  Kind of sad...

  • I'm with you. I have sat down to do the math a few times about where we would be with each loss...but I do have to do the math.

     I don't really hold onto dates like that. It would do nothing but cause me more pain.

  • me too, the only time I really think about it is when other people are close to my EDD.

  • My EDD came up fast. I started thinking about how old she'd be now if she was born around that time... but then again i have no clue when she would have been born! So lately i haven't been thinking about that. I guess that's good.

  • I try real hard not to think about how far along I should be right now or anything like that. It's torture.  I don't think I could have come to terms with this all if I was sitting there looking at a calander everyday to see how far along I was..
  • I never really think about it, which makes me very happy.  I have to think about it too, but even the milestones don't make upset me terribly.  Like today, she would be 3 months old....I'm sure her first birthday will be different....but today, doesn't really bother me.  It's just life as a whole, knowing I should have her and don't is what sucks.

    Dear God, I would have loved to have held my baby on my lap and tell her about you, but since I didn't get that chance, will you please hold her on your lap and tell her about me?

  • I try not to think about it and honestly I don't know off the top of my head. IMO, "letting go" is part of the healing process, for me at least, and while I will never forget our son, I want to move forward with positivity and not be overwhelmed with the "could have/would have beens".

    I am very philisophical about life, and any real event or decision in life can drastically change it's direction. I get very freaked out and upset by thinking about those things so for me it is better not to.

    My cowokers wife is due within days of my EDD so unfortunately I get reminded where I would be all the time by him.  When they had the big ultrasound, I was reminded I should be having mine.  Just yesterday he was saying how he can't believes it 6 months already and how much the baby is kicking and all I think of was that should be me.  So unfortunately I can't help but know exactly where I should be and what I should be experiencing.  Outside of work thought I rarely think about it.
