Although I have had a quick look through the forums I couldn’t find a thread relating to miscarried grandchildren, so here goes. Apologies in advance if it’s been discussed many times already.
My son and his girlfriend are having a baby - and, of course I’m thrilled to bits about it. It’ll be my fifth grandchild, so not a novelty like the first one but still a wonderful surprise. Apparently it was a surprise for them too. Nothing too unusual there although they are having to adapt their entire life plan as they both have children from previous relationships, hadn’t planned more and hadn’t formally or publicly committed themselves to anything other than having a good time. The young lady was quite ill earlier this year and the doc/hospital said she’d moscarried an ectopic pregnancy. A few weeks later she had a scan to determine the state of her insides and lo and behold it transpired she was four months pregnant.
I’m pleased with my son as he is being properly responsible about it, supporting her and preparing for renewed fatherhood and the new baby even though I t was something they didn’t plan for, has disrupted their travel plans and will be a financial burden.
I now find myself wondering if she miscarried a twin and feeling some loss and grief......is this a normal thing for me to feel? Have I lost a grandchild, or am I just being fanciful and silly...?
