Last year my son was stillborn at 36 weeks. I went into the hospital when my water broke thinking I would go in and have my c section that i was scheduled for just days later to find there was no heartbeat. My daughter who was 5 at the time went to her grandparents in the middle of the night when this happened and came to visit me in the hospital days later and asked me the hardest question where her brother Mason was...I broke down how could I explain to her where he was one minute he is in my belly the next he is gone and not coming home with us. We explained he went to heaven he was sick and went to be an angel. Still I think she had so many questions and talks about him often but how could I answer anything when I still have no answers myself. I am currently 8 months pregnant with my miracle baby and I am terrified I try not to show it in front of my daughter but I know she can feel it. She has such high anxiety over everything making sure I am there to pick her up at school not leaving my side and its affecting her school work. I dont know what I can do. I am heartbroken for her I know its a real problem she puts herself into a panic over thinking about who is going to be there for her at school and not wanting us to do anything while shes at school so we arent late I try to explain she should have fun and its mommy and daddys job to get her and she doesnt have to worry. Please I need advise on how to make this better I am so sad for her feeling this way!
