Ouch


My hubby has a few friends round tonight and one of them quietly told me that his girlfriend is 12 weeks pregnant. He told me privately, before the others arrived and that was such a thoughtful thing for him to do.

I congratulated him, then cried on his shoulder for a minute. I didn't realise it would hurt so much to hear that someone in our circle is pregnant.

I am very happy for them, and yet it makes me cry, knowing that they're expecting a baby.

When I lost Arin, shortly after, some friends who had struggled with infertility called to tell us they were pregnant, this after adopting 3 children and it wasn't expected to succeed, but they thought they'd give things one more go round. Anyway, they wanted to tell us right away so that we wouldn't hear through the grapevine and be hurt. We started talking about dates and things and it came to our realization that they conceived about the very same time I miscarried...the old adage "God takes one and gives another" rang true. It is going to hurt honey, but thankfully your friend was sensitive about it!!!

Thanks for your thoughts/comments ladies. Michelle, apparently they found out just when we were going through our stillbirth.
