Infant loss grief hits you at unexpected moments. Processing grief will not look like how you might imagine it will. Grief is not something you get over in a linear fashion. Grief is a strange thing. You definitely do not understand it at all until you experience it, and even then, you don't get it. Grief hits you in funny moments. We tend to expect grief to behave as a physical injury does. We think it will start out as a big gaping wound that will heal over time and then be better.

What To Say to a Mama Who Lost Her Baby and what NOT to say. When you lose a baby to miscarriage or stillbirth, the pain is all-consuming. And it is lonely. You are really the only one who knew you were pregnant on a real level. The baby inside you reminded you every day. The nausea reminded you every day. The massive changes your body went through reminded you every moment of every day. For everyone else, it was easy to forget the pregnancy.
Chronicles of a Babywise Mom: Heartbreaking Sorrow Strengthens Us "...such difficulties allow us to change for the better, to rebuild our lives in the way our Heavenly Father teaches us, and to become something different from what we were—better than we were, more understanding than we were, more empathetic than we were, with stronger testimonies than we had before."
