I'm really not sure what I should be thinking or feeling right now. I found out at my dating scan when I should have been 13 weeks pregnant that the baby had died at 7 weeks. This was just over 3 weeks ago. As soon as I found out, I texted everyone to let them know, I didn't want to have to speak on the phone, just couldn't face it. My sister, who lives in Northern Ireland, replied by simply saying, 'So sorry.x'. That was it. Didn't hear anything more from her. I haven't seen her for a few months, I mentioned to her in the summer that I was thinking of flying over to see her, and to let me know what would be a good time, but I didn't get a response. My mum has gone to see her this weekend, I got a text message from my sister this morning saying that she is 28 weeks pregnant (!!!!), she wasn't going to tell me until the baby was born, but my mum persuaded her to let me know.
I feel really upset. I can't believe that she would keep this from me. She obviously didn't want me to know for fear of upsetting me, but this is much worse. I can't live in a bubble and shield myself from every pregnant woman I see, and it just so happens that right now more of my friends are pregnant than ever have been at any one time before. Two of my closest friends are pregnant, but I'm genuinely pleased for them. Sometimes it is hard coping with other people's pregnancies (the two ladies comparing bumps at the halloween party last night was a bit hard to deal with), but I know I just have to get on with it.
Sorry for the rant, I needed to get it off my chest. DH is at work, have texted him but he doesn't really understand why I'm upset!
