I survived Mother’s Day

So I knew this weekend was not going to a good one since I should be 38 weeks pregnant and happy.  I was a total wreck and completely emotional.  I was crying on Saturday for the stupidest thing that triggered me to go into a full meltdown. I am glad this weekend is over and I hope that next Mother’s Day I will be pregnant or have my own baby to hold and love.

I guess the next big milestone I have to “look” forward to is my due date which is on May 29th.  I am thinking about doing a balloon release and lighting a candle in memory of Olivia.  I am trying to think of some other things to do but am coming up with a blank. 


My name is Cindy

    Due dates are tough. I usually have a nice little pity party for myself on those days- chick flicks, candy, and a big box of Kleenex. The way I see it, there’s no point in trying to keep it together… I just let it all out. And I always somehow get through it. And you will, too. You are strong. Just hang in there.

    Our due date for Oscar and Bella was January 1, so that first year, we invited just a few people from our support group to come out and make snow angels with us. As time has gone on, and with Tittle’s anniversary being January 25, we’ve changed the date a bit, but always invite people from our local loss community over to our house to make snow angels. You can’t really do that in May, unless you live someplace that DOES have snow in May, but we try to make it a day that has some happiness in it, to honor and remember our kids.

      Its just so hard…its the day before my hubbys bday and 6 days after mine. I dont know if I want to celebrate memorial’s day or not…feeling conflicted

        That does make it harder. Just try to remember that WHATEVER you do that day (balloon release, candle lighting, pedicure, sobbing, gardening, nature walk) it is done out of love for your daughter.

    What a rough month for you! I think what you want to do sounds lovely. I know other loss mommas have planted a tree or a flowering bush to represent their lost baby. It just comes down to what will hold meaning for you and your husband as you honor your little one. HUGS!

    Well done for getting through it. You could always name a star for your Olivia.
