Halloween pics :( — The Bump
Miscarriage/Pregnancy Loss

Halloween pics :(

I was doing ok today, until four people posted pics of their young babies/toddlers on FB in Halloween costumes. It just tugged at my heart. What if I never get to experience having my *own* child? I am tired of oohing and aahing over other people's children. Tired of buying gifts for other people's children. Tired of other people's children - period. I just want one to be mine.

Re: Halloween pics :(

  • I'm sorry.

    Today isn't a good day for me either, and I could've written this post myself!

    HUGS.

    Yeah. I might leave it to DH to answer the door. I think I can handle the older ones, but the babies and toddlers might be too much for me this year.

  • Couldn't agree more!  Today everyone is pissing me off and I really think this is one of the reasons!

     

    Hugs to you and hope that it will get better for you!

    Same here. Ugh, and now I have a friend with a newborn offering to take me for done therapeutic shopping tomorrow. She's very sweet. But seeing her baby might throw me into a tailspin in the middle of the mall.

    I hear you! I wasn't expecting people to bring their babies into the office today. My co-workers wife brought in their newborn daughter and I almost lost it crying. She was adorable and it just made me incredibly depressed. The pics aren't helping either. =

    Ouch.  :( I hate it when it's unexpected like that.

  • OMG! I was totally going to post this last night. Only thing I was too lazy to get up and grab my iPad. I am trying to be happy for others but I feel like cute little babies are everywhere. All I keep thinking is this time next year my little one would have been 4 going on 5 months. How perfect for Halloween. As soon as this nightmare is OVER. I am finding a new OB and will start TTC right away.

    I hadn't even let myself do the math about how old the baby would be. SIGH. 

    I did ok with the trick-or-treaters last night because most of them were older. The only one that made me tear up was the 1.5-year-old from across the street, but I hid it well. 

    Glad it's OVER, though. The photos on FB should be stopping soon as well.

  • 2redtulips maybe it is better that you did not add up babies age in a year. As soon as I got my due date I did. And I thought "OMG baby will be 6 months for Xmas" and how that is a "perfect" age for babies first Xmas....ugh so annoying right now. Well halloween pics will be stoppping but then we'll have to deal with the holiday pics and I am sure they'll be all over my newsfeed.

    DH was already planning for us to host Christmas next year because the baby would have been the perfect age. I just hadn't thought about Halloween.

    I have thought about Mother's Day (mid May) and my EDD (late May), and I know I will need to just be really gentle with myself that month.

    UGH. The milestones will be hard, I know. That's why DH and I are planning other happy things for ourselves. We have to have something to look forward to, even if it's not a baby yet.
