how to recover from stillbirth

Three weeks ago we lost our baby at almost 6 months pregnant. Due to complications I was in and out of the hospital for much of the 3 weeks and it's all just hitting us now. I don't know anyone who has had this experience and would love to hear some suggestions on how to get through this time.

My husband and I were so busy getting through the 8 days after my water broke followed by labor,(a ridiculous 14 hours,) and then a rehospitalization for infection with emergency surgery and 30 hours of drs thinking that I had meningitis, that we are suddenly very sad--like a huge weight is pressing down on us. I am going to a group starting this week which hopefully will help. I'm 41 so I'm not sure if we will try again and am obviously putting that on hold for a few months.
Please share any experience that you think might be helpful.
