Editor’s note: Thanks for sharing your story. It’s so sad for you that you felt you had to ‘trade’ your pregnancy to keep him and then you lost both baby and him. You are feeling very raw, aren’t you? A mixture of sadness and anger and hurt and loss – so many feelings that you don’t know what to do with. I think you would benefit from visiting your nearest centre and being able to talk it through with someone who understands. Alternatively, you could ring the helpline and talk to someone confidentially or use Online Advisor. It will make a huge difference to you to be able to tell your story in a safe and caring place.
