Where are my This is Us fans out there??🙌🏼
It’s such a great show and this week I caught up on the last 4 episodes. Kate’s episode (Number 2) really hit home with me. If you haven’t watched it and want to::::STOP reading:::::: spoiler alert!!
In the episode kate has a miscarriage. IMO the episode did a great job of showing the grief someone feels when they miscarry, even when it’s early in the pregnancy. I miscarried at 8 weeks and it was absolutely devastating. Our baby may have only been 8 weeks old, but I had imagined a lifetime with this baby. One of the most challenging things for me was to actually acknowledge my feelings, rather than pretending that everything is ok. I completely identified with Kate as she struggled with this too. In the end you have to feel your feelings no matter how painful they are. You can’t move past them if you don’t move through them.
I haven’t gotten into my miscarriage too much yet on this blog, but I will in a future post. It’s too much to share right now, but I promise I will go there sometime soon.
