    Five Years Yesterday
    prayforamiracle posted:
    I thought about posting this earlier, but I didn't won't to ruin anyone's 4th of July. Five years ago, I miscarried. I can not believe it has been that long. It makes me sick. I remember I was in the process of miscarrying for what seemed like two weeks. Then on the 4th, I couldn't figure out why I was hurting so bad and felt so bad. When I passed the baby the next morning on the fifth, it made since why I was in such pain the day before. I don't mean to bring anyone down, I just needed to write this out. It is so depressing to think about it being five years ago, it doesn't seem possible.

    ((hugs)) I don't even know what to say. There isn't really anything TO say, as we all know.

    You are so strong. I think about it being 1 year this month since we started ttc and I can't even imagine another 4 years without good news. I guess we do what we have to do when we want something so badly. Try to keep hangin in there. I have family members and friends who struggle with fertility and I know it can be very draining. Just know we're all here for you and you never have to feel bad about posting when you're having a bad day. We can all relate in some way and it's important to have a place where you don't have to act happy when you're not!

    (((hugs))) Pray. Please don't ever worry about bringing us down, we all know what its like to have anniversaries that tear you up inside... what bonds us together is we do understand and we WANT to hear when you are having a bad day so we can be there for you!
    I think it can make it worse when anniversaries are intertwined with a holiday b/c everywhere you look its a constant reminder.
    Gentle (((hugs))) for you and your sweet angel.

    You are all so, so sweet to me. It has been depressing and it just feels like it happened yesterday, not five years. DH doesn't remember the actual dates when it happened and I decided not to remind him. I figured I could protect him from the hurt.

    Pray- I am so sorry, I don't even know what the right words are right now but I will say that I've known for a while that you are a very strong woman and this also proves have been "at it" for longer than most of us and you are still here every week encouraging all of US on and when one of us announced our BFP you have always been happy and enthusiastic for us..I am sending you big, gentle ((hugs))..please take some more comfort when I say that I absolutely echo Becky's thoughts when she says that we do want to hear about any and all things that you feel like writing about, after all that's what we come here for is it not?..just know Pray that I have always believed that good things do come to those who wait so yours is coming Hun, and when it comes I'm sure it will be tenfolds xoxo
