Truth is, this isn't the first time.. after we lost Ellie, I really struggled with this.. in the beginning I couldn't go to baby showers and found it difficult to be around pregnant women, even friends.. But I have to admit, after lots of experience with this, and months gone by, my feelings this morning really took me off guard. I have no profound advice; loss sucks no matter when you experience it, and it stays with you. You carry on in your life, but you never forget, and you're never the same.
I share this because sadly I know so many of you have experienced a loss. You may have had moments like this or you may not; but whenever and however your loss effects you is ok. Go easy on yourself and feel what you need to feel.
Wishing you strength & love.
