Firstly, I’d like to thank you for sharing and supporting all who have experienced this loss. This weekend was my due date. Our son was born at 26 weeks, and after a massive struggle died 8 days later. After much thought I decided to create a new memory and celebrate what we do have. We celebrated our son by taking the sunset photo Carly did for us to get framed. My daughter, husband and I went to the zoo for the day. Family days take on so much more meaning now, and we took comfort in just being together in the outdoors. The lead up to this date has been very hard. For me the sadness comes from thinking of what might of been, and how happy we could have been. Yet the actual day was comforting. We have been lucky as close friends have sent supportive messages, but I found it helpful to talk to them and remind them of the special day. Planning the day was also helpful and talking to my husband about my feelings and asking him how he felt made it easier.
