      Hi all,  I'm sure you've noticed some changes in the forums. We've again had to do some updates, so that's why things may look a little different. Nothing major should have changed.  Also, we are going to start adding advertisements sensitive to our community on the boards. This is something we are experimenting with, and we will certainly make sure they are in the best interests of everyone. We want to make sure our forums continue to stay accessible and cost free to all of our members, and this is a way to ensure this.  If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to privately message me or email me at Konnie@beyondindigo.com.  As always, we will be here with you, ModKonnie

Loss of our only daughter has left my wife distaught.

Recommended Posts

I feel a little hesitant posting here, it doesn't seem to be active, but of the stillbirth groups I've found, most are aimed at mothers.  My wife and I have been married for fourteen years and have four wonderful sons.  She and I love them, but she has always wanted a daughter.  Though we were not trying to have another baby, she did get pregnant.  Almost a month ago, she went into early labor and gave birth to a stillborn girl.  And since then she has not been herself, which I cannot fault her for.  It hurts deeply to lose a child, and I know her anguish is different than mine.

But I do not know what to do for her.  Some mornings I cannot get her out of bed.  Others, she's fine, until she gets upset and snaps at me or our sons.  Our youngest is having a lot of difficulty comprehending what is going on.  I'm at a loss.

I am so very sorry for you loss. I would suggest it is time to talk with her about getting professional help. Start with her doctor and go from there. I'm sure she is dealing with a slew of issues, but I'm certainly no expert. 

We will be here with you,
