A Letter To My Unborn Child

So quickly you came into our lives,
So quickly torn away.
Never got the chance to meet you,
There's so much I want to say.
Where there once was joy and happiness,
Is now sadness, guilt, and pain.
All these thoughts running through my head,
It's enough to drive me insane.
Though you lived only eight short weeks,
You were loved so very much.
I wish that I could hold you,
I long to feel your touch.
On that night of March 25th,
My world was ripped from under my feet.
I pray that in another life,
We get the chance to meet.

It has been 5 days since I lost my baby due to a miscarriage. I was just about 12 weeks along. I was so excited about ending the first trimester and almost entering the second. Everyone, myself included were convinced the baby was a girl. I called and still call her my 'Lily Bell.'
I think about her everyday. Little things like the color of her eyes and hair. Honestly, I think about everything that has anything to do with her. I can't look at a baby without my eyes filling with tears. Tears for the loss of my unborn baby.
I do have a 7 year old son who adores his Dad. That typical Father and Son bond... Whom I love dearly.
Yet she was supposed to be mine. According to all the Mothers of Girls that I've talked with, there is nothing like the relationship between a Mother and Daughter. The bond is so deep and everlasting. I yearned for that.. I still do.
Now, all I feel is emptiness, guilt, and this awful ache that I have never felt. Knowing I won't ever get the chance to really know my Lily Bell is the most pain of all.
I could keep going on and on about how I feel but everyone here has felt that same ache. That loss of someone you love so much. But haven't even got to see or hold in your arms. All you have is your dreams and Faith if you're lucky enough to have.
To all the Mothers on here, I understand your pain. I feel that pain every second of every day.
No one else can truly understand unless you've actually been through it. I am sorry for each and every one of your losses. Just as I'm sorry for my 'Lily Bell'

It was 1999 when I was showering and quickly realized something was going wrong. Went to the hospital and as the lady did the ultrasound she said hunny I don't see the heartbeats nor the sac. I went to my parents house and told them of my loss and nobody knew what to say nor do. I cried. I went home and told my husband. He too didn't know what to say or do. He made sure I was comfortable and he went outside. He never really talked about this until last year around Christmas. He told me that we should give our baby angel a name. In honor of the wonderful women in our lives we named her "Lil Lula Beulah". We now have a 10 year old daughter. Last night she came to me and she said Mommy I wrote a song. I said that's good baby let me hear it. At my surprise she started it out with Oh Lula Beulah I really miss you even though I never got the chance to meet YOU. I cried as she struggle to finish the rest of her precious song about her big sister we never met. I'm not sure how to deal with the pain that I still have years later. I know that our lil Angel is in a much better place. So missing the baby I carried for 12 weeks but never got the joy of holding or seeing her precious face. The pain never goes away but with every day that goes by things get a little better. R.I.P. LULA BEULAH.

2014/02/14. That was the day I lost my two little angles in my life....!
I tried doing abortion over and over again but the moment I heard the heartbeats of them, I felt in love with them but it was too late.
I woke up in the morning not feeling so good, when I went to the toilet I had a huge pain in my stomach way to my private part, the moment I set down to the sit of a toilet, I felt a pain where I should push so hard that my too little boys came out of me, "alive" I was really happy, to hold them in my arms, there was blood all over the bathroom, I didn't care much because I didn't want to let them go in my hands...for few minutes I realized I am losing them coz they were not moving the way they were. My first boy then became cold and I tried saving him by covering him with towel, but that was too late for me, the other one stopped moving while I had him in my hands, I knew God is taking them from me but I begged him not to, I was late too. He became cold, I couldn't let them go. I cried for hours at the bathroom, "my boys are gone" that was the last thing I wanted to lose in my life, I can't look at myself in the mirror and say am proud to who I am today, I miss them, I love them, I want them, I want to touch them, I want to hold them, I want them with me...
I wish I can die, just to be with them, they are my everything, I miss there little tiny cry, little hands and they so cute like my boyfriend...
But well they are my angels from heaven that will look after me while I have no one.
I cry every single day and I can't stop thinking about them...It hurts so much, it hurts so much?? I feel like my life is over.
I will always love you my boys...mummy loves you till we meet again in heaven...

I lost my angel on May 31, 2014. It was a boy and I was 18 weeks pregnant. I think about and miss him everyday. I am 22 years old and this was my first pregnancy. The people at the hospital couldn't really tell me why the miscarriage was happening but I had a gut feeling that something was wrong. Once they performed an ultrasound they discovered that my water had broken and the sac was gone. His heart was still beating but they knew it wouldn't be for long. I cried for hours. I delivered him and afterwards the nurses bundled my tiny angel up and allowed me to see and hold him before I left the hospital. They also gave me a box with some memorable items. Sometimes I stare at the pic of his tiny toes and think of what life would have been like with him still here. But I know that god is taking better care of him than I ever could and we will meet again one day. RIP CJ. I love you! Always and Forever.

I went for my routine scan on 15th April 2014. The technician was scanning when I realized the heart was not blinking. I asked the technician. She said I can't find the heartbeat dear. Baby was not moving. I held my husband's hand tightly. I knew that moment that I have lost my gem. She told us to wait outside. Those 15 min wait for the doc was the longest 15 min of my life. The doc came and called us in. She did the scan again and confirmed there was no heartbeat. I cried and cried. She told me I have to go through the normal delivery process as the baby is already big. I was induced at 4pm and delivered my little gem on 16th April 2014 at 12.25 am. Baby was the size of my palm. My husband hold my hand and cried. Never had the chance to hold my gem in my hand but forever he will be in our hearts. He is my little angel.

On Feb 7, 2014, I took my husband for an ultrasound, so we could find out the sex of baby together. That day I was 18 Weeks and 3 days. The technician wanted to measure something before showing us the whole picture of the baby. I saw her trying to get a heartbeat, but there was none. She left the room and I fell into crying. My husband didn't understand that she didn't find heart beat. I sensed that something was wrong and couldn't hold back tears. My husband kept repeating that I am panicking without knowing what is really happening. And then doctor came in and told us the bad news. It's been two days that I can't find peace in myself. I keep blaming things that I could have done to hurt my baby. Not taking vitamins, stressing and so on. I have books and baby clothes I couldn't wait to buy, that are laying around house. I will never let this go. I will never hold or see this baby smile. I didn't find out what the sex was.. Or anything else that this baby was going to bring.

Had a evacuation done on 7.02.2014 2.20 pm. Have not closed my eyes since. The pain is beyond words...seeing my love ones feeling lost not sad make me feel worst. My son kiss my tummy and says good night every night. Breaking the news to him is heart wrenching. Mummy miss you my little angel.

I had an evacuation yesterday, 27 Jan 2014. Was suppose to be 11 weeks pregnant but the ovum never developed. Even though for 11 weeks I carried an empty yolk sack the loss of what could have been is so terribly painful! I can't stop crying and just feel so depressed! Feels like a lifetime before we can start trying for another baby! Thank you for helping me with these beautiful poems and all the other stories, it helps to know that I don't mourn alone!

It was 5 years ago when I had a miscarriage. Five years I thought I'm over it. Today, I have my moments. Thinking of our second child that's in heaven. We named him Michael Ivan. He was 12 weeks when he went heaven. The day before I had a miscarriage, my daughter who was 2 told me, that Michael is going to heaven now. I said no he's not. That same day in the afternoon. My daughter ran to our bedroom, she said she saw a boy and I was nervous. Then she looked up in the ceiling and said that the boy went to heaven. The next day, I was taken to the ER. Did all the tests. And found out that I was in the process of miscarriage. My heart my pounding, my heart was numb. I feel lifeless knowing my baby has gone too soon. I miss you Michael, every time I look up in the sky, I always think of you. That someday, somehow, I will get the chance to meet you and hold you. I always think of you. You are always in my heart.

I gave birth to Olivia Rose Littrell our baby girl, January 13 at eleven thirty five pm. She was 19 and a half weeks. Her death was due to a cord accident it was wrapped around her neck. We miss her so much, I feel empty and alone. Words cannot express the toll a miscarriage has on someone.

I had a miscarriage yesterday. I haven't slept since then. I feel like my soul was torn apart. I was three months. I haven't stopped crying, reading all these poems about other women that went through the same thing gives me a tiny bit of hope. My boyfriend told me it's retarded for me to cry because I can make another baby. But he doesn't get it. I have no idea what's going through his head or why he's being mean. Reading these stories is the only thing making me feel a little better.

I recently miscarried at 7 weeks, reading this poem helped me a lot. Thank you

When pregnancy occurs you never think about losing a child. I know I didn't. But this was my second pregnancy , and compared to my first I was terrified of having a miscarriage. Well it happen. I thought I was 11 weeks and 3 days. My mistake my baby heart couldn't carry on after 7 weeks. This whole time I thought the baby was healthy and I was so excited so happy. My dreams got crushed yesterday. I may not have gotten to meet you, but I love you just as much as I love your big sister, you will always be a part of my heart and in my mind. I miss you. I didn't think anyone could write a poem anywhere close to how I felt. But this poem is pretty much it. No couple or individual should ever have to lose their child, not this way or any other way...

I dedicate this poem to our little one that we just lost April 22, 2013. This is our 1st Miscarriage but would have been our second baby.

Our 3 and a half year old little girl was so excited that she was going to be a big sister.

We will miss you!!!

I am glad I found this website.
I read your poem and it touched my heart.
I have too lost my baby, baby number 3 is what I called him before I lost him.
It's been two years since it happened and I've been drowning in sadness ever since.
My husband had just left to Afghanistan and within a week it happened I lost our baby.
I will never forget!

I still can't think of that moment without tears forming up, without the heartache. (like I am now)
SO my point is Thank You and to the many other mothers who have shared such beautiful poetry to inspire others like me.

I've been looking for anyone who could relate to my situation and that itself helps, to know that I'm not alone.

Dedicated To My first miscarriage with my 5th child

I never had the chance, To hear you talk or hold your hand, Our time ran out
Before you could walk..You were born with wings..I never thought the Lord would take you away from me so soon..A sign we knew, That the man upstairs Would soon come for you. They laid you in my arms And I quietly mourned, For my dark haired angel That I had born. I never had a chance To see your eyes, He took you away With no time for good byes, I think of you often And wonder why, I never had a chance To hear your first cry. All I have are dreams of you, those of which, will never come true. My heart sank the day that I knew, I would never get to meet you. I had made plans, and had aspirations, if only I had a little more patience But, I'll never forget that dismal day, around in the afternoon. The day I knew something was not right, and through many tears I would have to fight. Now, all I do is dream every night, about what life would have been like. What if you really had been born? But all we have a dreams of that, and all we can do is mourn. We will not mourn for you though, because we know you're where you need to be, even though it isn't here with me. You were a special little angel An enchanting rose, The moment I held you Our time suddenly froze. I never had the chance To watch you grow, Or hear your laugh As we played in the snow. I never had the chance To give you a mother's love, But I know you're always there Watching over me from above. You are my angel baby because God wanted you with Him. Now, forever with his angels, His praises you will sing..None of my dreams for you will ever come true, because of that day God chose to take you. But, my angel baby you will always be, in my heart forever, forever a part of me always

R.I.P. my baby angel that pass away from 3 to 4 year ago since 2007... I will meet you up in heaven when my time comes to be with you and our family .. I miss you so much and always remember mommy & daddy love you my 5th child =(
