Late Term and Child Loss


I knew it would happen eventually. I have cried in my car after seeing pregnant women in a parking lot, but I have always managed to keep it private. Not today! I took DS to Musical Munchkins and kept very calm while everyone wondered where I have been for the last 3 weeks. Then the one mom I was dreading seeing walked in. She is due 2 weeks before I was and she is having another boy too. The tears just started coming so I left my 18 month old in the classroom and ran out for some tissues. I calmed down for a bit and then I heard "pregnant mom" ask her son "where's the baby? Where's your brother?" and I lost it all over again. I don't think anyone noticed though as I marched around the room singing. Thanks for letting me get this off my chest. I am sure this will not be the last time it happens.

  • I'm sorry you had a bad day, I'm still dreading running into someone who doesn't know what happened and having them excitedly ask when he was born.
