My brother told me in July he and his wife were expecting their first child. I was so happy for them and looking forward to the arrival of their baby. I had even already started knitting.
Today (father's day) I found out they had lost the baby. There were problems seeing the baby on the ultrasound and they were going to have further tests next week but in the meantime she started bleeding, so I guess the baby was never going to make it.
I can't stop crying and wondering about the baby. I feel my brother and his wife's pain and feel so bad for them too.
My husband has ignored the whole subject, from when I told him there were problems and even tonight. I don't want much from him, just to be acknowledged, even for him to just ask what happened or a hug, but nothing. Sometimes I hate him, why can't he pretend to care.
Anyway, I'm off track. I don't know how to grieve for my niece or nephew. I guess I just want to say it's not only the parents that are affected, it hurts all the family.
