I’m new here and just wanted to say hi. My husband passed 2 months ago today. Two weeks later I delivered our baby boy. I also have a little girl who turns 2 next month. I didn’t realize when I started writing this that there would be so many twos in my first paragraph!

Anyway, just wanted to see who else is out there that might be familiar with my circumstances. Looking forward to connecting with some of you.

Hi hamm4d,

I've always had a soft spot for the pregnant widowed ...

Many prayers for you & your child ...

Hi hamm4d, 

My name is Susan and I lost my husband when pregnant in 2009 years ago just as this group was evolving.  I now have a 9 year old daughter (CRAZY!) and brighter days do lie ahead. That said, I know how insanely gut wrenching this situation is and the pain recedes but never goes away - we merely adjust to the loss and gratefully learn how a new life can offer us new inspiration for hope and love.  Feel free to reach out to me via email or through this site and I'll check in -

Hi hamm4d, 

My husband died in 2011 when I was two months pregnant. My daughter just turned 6 so it's not as fresh for me, but I'm around if you need to talk/vent. I'm so sorry you're here (not a group you'd ever choose to join) but glad you found widowed village. It was a huge help to me.

Hello, hamm4d—

I am glad you found this place for encouragement—widowed village/Soaring Spirits wasn’t around yet when my husband died, but has since become a lifesaver for me!

I was so encouraged to see this group, but now I see there hasn't been any activity in two years.

Is anyone out there???

I hope everything is OK with your baby. The hardest part is the constant wondering how it would be of they were still with us, would we make the same decisions? Would we face the same challenges? I have wondered millions of times how my husband would have reacted to things our son has done and I HATE that I have to make the hard parenting decisions on my own, it was never supposed to be this way. I'm sorry you have to face this uncertainty without your boyfriend. I hope you have a good support network near you to help you through.

I'd done re-reading all the old post here. I'd like to think that the old post of the ladies here that shares their stories of what they had dealth, including health issues about their unborn baby at that time, that we will too will deliver a very normal and healthy baby even if we'd been through a lot of negative emotions.

I feel so lost. I received news that my baby's kidney isn't fully developing and don't know what that means until he's born. I feel so helpless. Times like now is when I would turn to my boyfriend for comfort and love, I feel so alone and miss him so much. I don't know how to be, who to be, or where to go without him. Losing him unexpectedly leaves living in constant wonder of what it would be like if he were here.
