What a sad face.....

That's what one of the guests at the shower said to me after she took an unexpected picture. She was a friend of my cousin's, not family, so she probably didn't have any idea about the m/c. However, I survived....it was like a knife in my heart (or gut, whichever you prefer) for an hour and half, but I lived through it. It was definitely bittersweet....I almost lost it when the dad-to-be put a monogrammed burp cloth over his shoulder, and all I could imagine was DH holding our little baby. Then I almost lost it again when my cousin started thanking everyone for coming and celebrating such a great miracle, etc, etc....her husband was holding her hand and then he kissed her.....yeah, that hurt. She will be 34 weeks tomorrow....I would have been 24 (our turnover day was the same-Sunday). She will probably have her baby in two weeks (health issues), and all odds are I will be starting AF. Hey, maybe I can get a surprise BFP on the day he is born.....I think God has a sense of humor like that sometimes....although maybe just thinking that I ruined my own surprise....damn.

I'm glad you got through it mostly unscathed. The husband's hand on the belly is what gets me.

I hope you do get that surprise- I hear you about ruining your own surprise- I had that exact thought earlier today about this month.

I'm glad you lived through it. I'm sure it wasn't easy at all. I would have been tempted to do something secretly mean. You know, hide a sandwich under their couch or something so that they spend the next couple of weeks wondering what that smell is.

Hey Katie, thanks for stopping by my blog. I was so sorry to read about your twins loss though. I thought it was hard with just losing the one, I can't imagine two. My heart goes out to you...

Oh and let me know how the limbo thing works, (tee, hee, too funny)
