Mother's Day

Postby mrsm44 » Sat May 03, 2014 10:42 pm

It's coming up, and I realize that it may be a sensitive day for those who were supposed to be mothers this mother's day. My mom is bugging me about it, and I don't think she realizes that it's hard for me this year. It would have been my first mother's day. How do you all feel about it?

In the UK, it is in March. Mother's day was 2 weeks after my miscarriage. I already find mother's day tough ever since my own mother died of cancer when I was 27. Having the double whammy of losing a baby was tough.

BFP - Feb 2014, Natural MC 18 March, 8 weeks, 4 days.

BFP - June 2014
US - 18.7.14 - baby measuring 8+1. Strong, clear heartbeat.

I am not looking forward to it either. My older sister has kids and while I understand her desire to be recognized, my younger sister and I are still childless. It gets a bit more sensitive considering my losses and my sister's infertility struggles (6 yrs TTC, failed IVF and FETs, now moving towards adoption).

My DH also lost his mom last spring so.

I think it will be a day to avoid social media, the tv, the radio and the general public and spend some quality time with DH instead.
