But as any pregnant woman knows, life must go on. We must do the bare minimum to ensure chaos doesn't make its way into our homes. I don't want to feel like this; exhausted and sometimes lifeless in thought. I don't even have the energy to string together thoughts.

In fact, after talking with every mother I have ever had the pleasure of meeting, not one of these women has had their "dream delivery."
My son was a mere 2 weeks old when I knew something was wrong.  He was sleeping 21+ hours a day. His skin had started getting darker. Nursing sessions seemed to get longer every time, and it was so hard...
Having reached a point where your grief has subsided to intermittent passing thoughts rather than a constant state of pain, technology throws a punch in the form of an algorithm from Facebook-land. A little message pops up to remind you that "5 years ago today you... were just letting everyone know that you "won't actually be having a baby in July, no heartbeat.""
