I am pregnant now and have been asked sooooo many times if this will be my first. My typical response has been ... "We lost a son @ 36 weeks and I have a 15 year old stepson" I try to say it matter of fact but upbeat.

A couple of times I've gotten more questions about Seth and I don't mind sharing. Most of the time's I get an I'm sorry and I try to redirect the conversation back to what we were originally talking about.

I don't want to make them feel bad, but I also don't want to make me feel bad by not mentioning it.

It's sometimes germain to the conversation too .....as sometimes they are wanting to talk about pregnancy.I've already been pregnant before. So, in the times that I didn't mention it I've found it even more awkward to have to go back and explain that I have been pregnant and delivered a baby before.
