Is it possible to mourn the loss of something that never or almost occurred?

Yes. You can even mourn the loss of wishes and hopes that don’t turn out.

I think a pregnacy would be an example.

There could be many things along the lines of possible losses that could be mourned but I would think that these would fall into the category of disapointments.

Just a thought.
