Dumb Pregnant People

Why is it that pregnant people act like I have the plague? Like what I had is contagious and they might get it if they associate with me. It's crazy. I had preeclampsia. MY body failed me, my son and my husband. And it continues to fail me. Don't worry, you can't get what I have. And thank your lucky stars you can't.

If you are pregnant, I can handle it. I can look at pictures and sonograms. I might even ask to hold the baby. Just give me time to adjust and let it sink in. I need time to think about it and digest. Don't take it the wrong way if I don't jump up and down when you tell me how this was a big surprise. Don't take it the wrong way if I don't come to your baby shower.

Hi. I'm here from Lost and Found... I just wanted to wish you the best and let you know that I think your header is absolutely beautiful. I am so sorry for the loss of your son, and hope this blog is a good outlet for you.

I too am here via Lost and found. I would like you to know that there is plenty of support here and we are all walking the path of loss. I am sorry for the loss of your little boy. I hope he's playing with my son.

Thinking of you and wishing you peace on this journey. Good luck with TTC. My thoughts will be with you all daily.

Nic, I'm with you on this one! I HATE to be treated like I have the plague ... it's one of the most hurtful things I've encoutered since Myles death (even worse that the horrifically insensitive comments people have made)! ((Hugs))
