Yesterday I was waiting in the lobby of the School of Rock for my son to begin his music class. Another mom was there quite pregnant her son also in my son's class. The receptionist started talking to her about her pregnancy and when she was due. and as they talked it came out she was having a boy, her son was saying how he was going to be a big brother. and for whatever reason it just bothered me. I got that feeling of wanting to talk about my experience, wanting to burst her happy pregnancy bubble. Of course I didn't....It made me think of how I was the same way pregnant with Scott telling everyone how it would be all boys in the house etc. I guess just to similar for my liking.
I than also realized this morning that yesterday was Valentine's day and that was the day 3 years ago we found out Scott was to be a Scott and not a Katie. How cool and special we thought it was to do that appointment on Valentines' day.
HUGS TO YOU!
Urgh, yeah. Those moments when you overhear someone else's life and you want to scream ME TOO! That must have been so hard! I hope C came out beaming after an awesome music class and had yourself a piece of chocolate when you got home. I remember you sharing that you had S' s ultrasound on Valentine's. I hope that is still a very happy moment for you, a day filled with so much extra love.
I get it! I think that after I had Josie, and she was gone, I couldn't stand to see pregnant women or small babies in strollers. And when others gushed about them or went on and on about due dates/gender/hair color/ eye color/ possibilities of colic I just wanted to scream at them! I wanted to say it doesn't matter as long as they are healthy!! What is wrong with you that you are critiquing a healthy life that you know will live! AHHH. My thoughts are with you. Trust me. I get it.
I know that must have been a very difficult moment to watch that pregnant woman interact with the receptionist. So so hard.
That is very special that you had that appointment on Valentine's Day. What a special day that must have been for the two of you.
I often feel the same way when I hear about someone's pregnancy. It's hard for me sometimes, especially when they are around the same gestational period I was when I lost Sean. I just bite my tongue and try to shake off that chip off my shoulder though it can be really really hard!
