Yesterday I was talking to someone about my pregnancy when another girl butted in and asked how far along I was , and I said nearly 9 weeks and her response was like "oh-well you still not out of the woods yet" and I'm looking at her thinking why would you say that to someone?
I don't think I'll ever understand why people say the things they say. Someone on the Loss boards said there's a sign in their town that says "If you're going to say what you think, please think first." I wish more people would follow that advice.
After two losses back-to-back, I'm getting more brazen when people say stupid stuff. I'd probably have said what you thought and asked why she would say that to someone.

The same thing has happened to me. I had a girl tell me not to get my hopes up yet when I was aout 8 weeks along. I just do my best to ignore those people. They really have not got a clue on how to be sympathetic/empathetic. It really is sad that they go through life sying stupid things all the time and no one probably ever corrects them! Sorry about that, I just know where you are coming from!
