I was hoping someone may have some help on moving forward with my pregnancy.
My beautiful Hope born sleeping at 22.5wks I’m still pregnant with her sister.
The struggle between my grief and staying strong is really tough , I cry & I hurt I’m broken how do I find the strength to give to my unborn little girl.
I know I should be grateful I’m having almost another chance even though it’s a waiting game for her each day at the moment.
Any support or experience welcome.
Blessing to all those who have lost

I'm so sorry for the loss of your daughter. I am in a different situation, but I lost my daughter aged 14 months, and was 10 weeks pregnant at the time, so I understand what its like to be grieving while carrying another child. It is incredibly difficult and it is hard for others to understand the conflict between grieving what is lost, while still being grateful for what is to come.
I tell myself that right now, my unborn baby needs very little from me. It is totally OK to focus on grieving and cry as much as you like. Don't look too far into the future, that will fall into place when it needs to. I sort of 'ignored' my pregnancy for a couple of months, and it is only now that I am able to feel a bit more anticipation and happiness.
I hope you have lots of support around you, it is such a hard situation to be in.
