...But instead he is in a box in the ground on the other side of the world with a couple of silly little toys that he will never see, let alone play with. I thought I was okay. I thought I had moved past the raw grief but I can't stop crying today and no doubt tomorrow.
To make it all that bit crueller, my period is also due tomorrow so now I am dealing with all the premenstrual symptoms that tell me that I am not pregnant again.

Thinking of you, and feeling much the same. I didn't realise our due dates were the same.

With the goo goo and Riotproof, thinking of you both as you approach your due dates today.
It's never an easy day, take one hour at a time to to remember your precious babies and if you are up it do something special like release balloons or scatter rose petals at the beach or visit a special place.
My due date for Skye was last week so know hard heartbreaking it is for you today, all my plans ended up ruined, couldn't visit her or release balloons due to bad storms and organised to get my tattoo and the receptionist booked it for this month
Sending you both my love today

Goo goo and Riotproof, I am so sorry that you do not have your babies with you in your arms.
My due date has passed recently too & I miss my babies so so very much. Watching people around me enjoying their newborns just throws acid into the wounds.
I wish you much peace & love within your families as you face this inevitably lonely Christmas.
Lots of love.
