Does anyone else have nightmares after a stillbirth/miscarriage? For the past week I have had recurring nightmares and they are always of my baby Luke hurting either one of my children or his Dad. They scare the heck out of me and I don't like having them at all. I've never had them with my first 2 miscarriages, maybe because they happened so early into the pregnancies. The only thing that seems to help me sleep through them is taking tylenol pm before bedtime. I don't want to sound like a horrible Mom. I love my son just as much as I love his brothers and sisters even though he is not here with us. He is still a part of us. I don't want to keep having these nightmares about him cause it makes it even harder to grieve for him. I don't know what to do about it. Any suggestions?
