My Mood:
When "Liquid Gold" is Bittersweet- Loss ment. Update post 34

Wasn't quite sure where to post...

My body thinks I have a newborn to feed- I guess it wants to nurture my little one, even though he is gone. He'll never get this liquid gold. I wasn't even sure if my body would make milk, given I was only 20 weeks along when he passed- but it is. Those first tiny drops of colostrum 2 days after he was born, and about a teaspoon when I used my hand pump today. My 28 month old DS is thrilled, excitedly telling me "Nussies have moe milk!" when he tried to nurse (he had been nursing off and on the whole pg, but my milk had dried up by 12 weeks). For me it is bittersweet, knowing this milk was meant for the little one I lost. I am going back and forth about maybe pumping a bit and donating some, but I haven't decided yet-

Anyways, Thanks for listening-
