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.
