After experiencing 3 losses the CBC segment today on pregnancy loss hit home to me on so many levels.

 

****Super trigger warning here*****, but I wanted to share Siri Agrell's essay on late pregnancy loss which had me bawling. 

 

You can listen to the full 54min segment and her 9min essay here: http://www.cbc.ca/radio/outintheopen 

 

Lots of love to those of you who have lost your angel babies.

Thank you for sharing. I rarely talk about my losses and even close family is shocked to hear this is our 6th pregnancy. I'm grateful to those who are able to speak out about their experiences as a way to help others understand.

Me too. It can be such an isolating experience. I remember being so mad at DH because he wasn't seemingly affected. I know he was and he said it was hard for him, but I wanted to process it and I felt like there was no one that I could be really honest with. No one that really understood what I was going through - aside from the lovely ladies on this board of course. I've also been pregnant 6 times and whenever I'm in a healthcare situation they look at me with shock at that fact. 

 

Congratulations on your pregnancy!!
