YOU NEVER KNOW
Remember when I talked about this pregnant lady? Remember how uncomfortable she made me? Yesterday I was talking to her, and she told me that she has to visit the doctor frequently because this is her eighth pregnancy. She has no living children. I immediately connected with her (even if she wasn't aware of it). I immediately saw her in a different light. I remember something that another deadbabymama said to me during those first months after Brenna was born: "You should not dislike other pregnant women. How do you know they haven't stood in your shoes before?" I guess I don't know. It shouldn't make a difference, anyway.
