kimbers - September 29

I lost my first baby at 9 weeks in May 2012, 2 weeks before my 27 birthday. The father of the baby decided a month before I found out I was pregnant that it wasn't working and ended things. I had great friends and family as a support network but that still didn't stop the hurt or guilt. I'd been bleeding so attended hospital, the thought of dread rushed through my body and lingered until I was told 'your baby no longer has a heartbeat' they then took me for a D&C. I have never cried so much or been so scared, all I wanted was a hug and for someone to tell me everything was ok or that I was living a dream. I was at the hospital on my own and was a complete mess, not knowing why and just blaming myself. I didn't want to go to sleep as I knew the reality would be that I'd wake up without my baby. This hit me hard. I woke up and felt empty and totally numb. After a few weeks had passed I met a guy who lives in the same town as me and I'd known of him and his family. He asked my friend for my number and got in touch, at first I was adament that nothing should happen but I gave him the benefit of the doubt and I went round for coffee. We hit it off and I eventually explained to him what I'd been through and he was so supportive. I'd also made the decision to fill a life long dream to travel Asia and Australia, again he was great and explained that he wanted make my last few weeks in the UK the best ever and to make me happy again. This happened and we had such a great time, all the time I never forgot about my baby, the little one was always with me in my thoughts but he helped me so much. I returned from my travels early to see how things would develop between us and I realised I still needed to address my loss and sought help and I am now talking about what happened and I'm also writing my own journal and I wrote a peom that I keep with me all the time. Writing helps me to vent my feelings and frustration, It's taught me to keep looking forward. Here's my poem....

'Little one you brought so much joy but your life was so short,
Taken in a flash, an empty feeling fills that space.
I will never know the joy of your laughter or the shine of your smile,
I'll never be able to kiss your delicate forehead goodnight or stroke your soft hair,
I will never see you grown but now I've got to be brave,
But little one you will be in my thoughts forver.'
