I think the VTS has really gotten to me. I find myself convinced that the other baby is still alive...but I'm frustrated becasue I know it's not true.<br><br>
I feel crazy.<br><br>
Tell me someone knows what I'm talking about.

It sounds like you're grieving. It's okay! Have you posted in the loss board here? I'm sorry I haven't much to say, but I will give you this: <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/hug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="hug">

I just wanted to offer a hug as well. It does sound like you're grieving, and I don't blame you. I'm so sorry <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/hug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="hug">

I do this all the time. Its not like I BELIEVE it, its more like I play the what-if's game. Like what-if next time I go in and the other baby all the sudden appears alive. I lost Baby B at 11 weeks so every time I go in they do an u/s to check and see if it is dissolving properly, and I always think that maybe this time it will have a heartbeat. I know it won't but for some reason that thought ALWAYS goes through my head. Don't worry your not alone!

Thank you. I can't tell you how much this helped me yesterday. And it's VERY comforting to know that I'm not alone. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">

<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/hug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="hug"> It does sound like grief. After our baby passed away at 14 weeks, I became convinced for a brief time that the doctor was wrong and had just missed her heartbeat. I think it was denial, a stage of grief. I'm sorry for your loss. I found support in the loss forum.
