Child Loss

Not Quite The Announcement I Wanted To Make…

I am finding it really hard to begin typing this blog post, as this post really isn’t going to take shape on how I ever dreamed it would.

You see this blog post should be joyous, happy and bright.

Instead its not, its bleak, sad and grey.

In a couple of weeks I should be telling you all I am pregnant, wanting to share my pregnancy and bringing our third child into the world. A third child we have been longing for for nearly 2 years.

Instead I am sat here telling you all I have miscarried, I am heartbroken.

I am empty, physically and emotionally.

I sit for hours in silence, not knowing what to do whilst my whole body just aches, whilst my head is completely clouded and I am unable to think.

When I can cry I sob, the tears come thick and fast and I then spend hours feeling drained before the next wave of sobs arrive.

I can barely eat, I have no appetite and when I do manage some food I feel worse because I have forced myself to eat when I didn’t want food.

I cant sleep, because I don’t want to wake up and relive in my head whats happened.


This isn’t my first miscarriage, I lost my daughter at 16 weeks at the end of 2010. I have experience this loss before, but it doesn’t get easier living it. I now live with the knowledge I have now lost 2 children and not 1, it hurts.

In a couple of weeks I was looking forward to publishing a couple of new blog posts announcing my pregnancy, from weeks 5 upwards, about my feelings, excitement and sickness (because I actually miss that now!). Instead these blog posts are now going to sit in my drafts, untouched, unpublished and I know I wont be able to face reading or deleting them for some time to come.

Right now I am unsure what to do, I know I need time to grieve, to recover but I know I don’t grieve well.

I know I won’t be around on my blog for a while, my head really isn’t working well enough to be able to type, the fog in my head isn’t allowing me to express what I need to say.

I hope to be back soon, perhaps once the school holidays are over. I need to focus on my family for a while.

    Oh I am so sorry to read this. Miscarriage is the robber of hope and promise. It is the worst thing. I wish I could make it better for you. All I can say is you are not alone. I lost 2 and I still think of those babies. How old they would have been. I am here if you need to vent. I’m so sorry xxx

    No, you need to focus on you. And if that means taking time out with your family then do it.
    And don’t underestimate the power of a good unpublished blog post. It lets you sort out your head and stops the thoughts running round and round forever. No-one ever needs to read it, but do what everyone always says and write for yourself.
    Love to you and to your fella xx
