I am 41 years old, got pregnant with my first baby but had a stillbirth at week 38 just about 5 weeks ago.
My husband was supportive in the beginning. However during this period of coping and greiving, we started drifting apart and now he wants to wait at least a year before we try again. He said he needed to solve issues between us first.
While I do agree with him that there are issues between us, I can not afford to wait until 1 year later to TTC which means at best I will have a baby at age 43, or at worst, nothing. My husband is 10 years younger than me.
I feel life has totally changed. Now I have no interests in life, in relationship or anything else. I have a job that I enjoy very much. That is probably the only thing left for me in life.
i would recommend that you go to counselling . i went through the same thing when i lost my baby girl. she was born with a knot in the cord and had passed away a week before i had her.i found that talking to somebody outside of my family helped . it took a long time to get back on track with my life but every day u get a little bit stronger..
I feel so sad for you. I had a baby many years ago that died a couple of hours after she was born. My husband and I had a good relationship but we grieved very differently, He would go out and play basketball while I sat in the house and cried. I agree that counselling would be a good thing for you to consider and as time goes on you will feel a bit better.
