A Mother’s Grief

If you’ve read my previous posts (about miscarriage and grieving) you’ll know that my journey to have a second child has been a rocky one. It’s certainly not the journey I expected to have.

However up until this point I’d been able to explain and see possible reasons for my miscarriages and was feeling very positive that the third time would be successful. But unfortunately that has not been the case.

I had a miscarriage again last night…it was early, I’d only known I was pregnant for a week. But a week can be a long time. The due date was calculated, my mind had been wandering, hoping and imagining for the future. And I met up with a group of close friends yesterday only to discover 3 out of 4 of us were pregnant – all 4 weeks apart – how incredible! How exciting it was going to be!

And now what? Really? This had to happen to me, again? Me, who eats well and looks after myself and desperately, desperately longs for a child.

Why? That’s all I can think. Why?

And now I’ve just got to remember to breathe again…

  2. Oh Kate. I’m really sorry to hear this. I was hoping that the next post I read from you would be a positive one, but my heart sank as soon as I saw the subject line as I knew it was going to be sad news. I don’t really know what to say, but wanted to say something to let you know that I’d read this … and that I was/am thinking of you.

  4. I can’t understand it either. To me you deserve it more than anyone. You are such a amazing mum, it feels so unfair. thinking of you Kate.

    I saw your comment about your miscarriages on another blog. I am so so so sorry. Just wanted to remind you that you are not alone. We have one son and our attempts at having a second child have resulted in 5 miscarriages with no answers. I too consider myself a pretty healthy person. You are correct, each loss is hard, even if you already have a child. Best of luck to you on this journey!

    • Thankyou so much Katie, it does mean a lot to know you’re not the only one. I have no answers yet either, but am still hopeful of carrying another child to term. Best of luck to you too and I hope your journey brings good things. xxx

  10. It’s very difficult to understand these things. I lost our 2nd but went on to have healthy 3rd, 4th, 5th and am thankful for each precious one. I hope things work out for you soon.
