Don’t feel guilty or weird. I’m so sorry you’re going through this.  Are you seeing a therapist for your grief and a psychiatrist for your other disorders? If not, I’d start there. Also my doctor told me to keep a journal which I recommend, it has helped me a lot with my anxiety.

Oh my god I don’t blame you at all. I’m so sorry about your loss OP. You’ve had a rough time with pregnancy and I totally understand why you’d be feeling anxious and worried. Hugs.

I’m so sorry you’re going through this, and I’m so so sorry for your loss. It wasn’t just the loss of a pregnancy, it was the loss of your child, of course you are grieving! There is nothing to feel guilty over here.

Oh bee, how my heart goes out to you. I can relate to having an SO with PTSD, as my last relationship to the love of my life (also a combat vet) ended due to this horrendous condition. I highly recommend you check out the website There’s tons of helpful info on there plus an incredible community that rallies around sufferers and supporters alike. Also, please feel free to reach out to me directly if you’d like anymore info or resources or just to vent. I’m here for you!

I am sooo sorry bee, that all sounds extremely difficult to be navigating simultaneously. I am so glad you are both seeking help. If your husband hasn’t already, have him look into/ask his provider about a stellate ganglion block. It has the potential to be life changing for him.

@BeepBopB00p:  You should absolutely not feel weird or guilty. All emotions and feelings are valid. I have no advice to give you other than a big virtual hug.

@BeepBopB00p:  I think going through that and now proceeding to IVF, which is stressful in itself, is causing so much anxiety for both my husband and I and it’s beginning to become overwhelming and all consuming. Blah.

Do you think it might be a good idea to postpone IVF/further fertility treatment? If it’s become to stressful that you feel overwhelmed then it might be better to take a break for your emotional and mental health.

I am so sorry for you loss.

My husband has PTSD. I cannot imagine having a new baby when he was at his worst, especially if I had also been going through PTSD. I would think about waiting until both of you are in a healthier state.
