It happened two days ago and we’ve shared grief on and off. I saw it happen. How am I okay when she’s not? What can I do when I’m grieving when she’s not awake? How can I make this better as time goes on?
Good evening Wisconsin86. Our deepest condolences go out to you and your partner on your pregnancy loss. You are probably in the shock stage, it will come in waves as to how you are feeling. At first, I though I was going to be ok, but it was only when I took the time to relax that it hit me how I was actually feeling. Only you will know what will make you feel better in time, for me, I put my airpods in and took myself running, listening to some music and running allowed me to tune out for a bit and try to regather my senses. It made me feel slightly better for a short while. The biggest thing that helped me was talking to my wife. I wanted to know how she felt, her emotions, the next steps, the future. This allows us to work on us at the same time. Yes, it was hard, Yes, there was tears, but it massively helped. We work with some great charities that I can put you in touch with if you feel you need something more professional, but have a look on the forum here and I’m sure you will find posts similar to yours. If you want us to provide you some more info on charities and helpful sites you can drop us an inbox and we can send this. Chris MFM 💚
