Hi, I'm looking for someone, anyone, who understands. We had a termination on Thursday at almost 16 weeks, our little baby had trisomy 18. I'm so sad, this was our first attempt at having children and I just can't believe it. I keep bursting into tears at random times, I haven't left the couch in days, how long will I feel this sad?
I have taken this week off work and my boss just doesn't get it. I feel like nobody really gets it. All the people who acted like they were upset and cared when we found out about the trisomy 18, don't really seem to care at all now. My sister in law is pregnant and I feel like she is shoving it in my face constantly and being really insensitive. My mum has been amazing and has stayed with me the whole time, which is a brilliant effort considering my grandma died last week too. Its truly been a horrible few weeks. My husband has been great too, but just going about life as usual as if nothing happened, maybe that's just his way to deal with it.
Pretty much everyone I know is either pregnant or has a baby and I just don't know how I'm going to cope with all this. I can't stay on the couch forever I guess
Then there is being terrified that it will happen again, or something else will happen.
Sorry its so long,I just had to get it all out.
