So, I went to calling hours of a family friend that was killed by a drunk driver. They were at a stop light and knew they were going to be hit from behind and she covered her 10 month old to protect her and was killed. The driver of the truck was going an estimated 90 mph. I knew I would probably have a rough time. I WAS UNCONTROLLABLE. I really didn't "know" her that well, so I think my emotions were just out of control. I completely lost it - I don't know if it was pregnancy hormones or the fact that we're pregnant and she passed away protecting her baby or what. I felt really stupid for being so emotional.....they just had so many pictures and it was so so sad. I was happy that DH was supportive and didn't call me a baby for crying so much. I just couldn't get a grip on myself. I told DH when we got outside that I never wanted to take him for granted and that I realized just how quickly everything can be taken away
I'm like about any situation where kids are involved. As soon as I had T everything affected me so much more. I would have been the same way. So sad for the family.
I'm usually a pretty emotional person, even before I got pregnant. I just maybe felt like I used to have more "control" (not sure if that makes sense) I wondered if this is the new over emotional me - and everything will affect me so much more.
It is so sad for the family, I just can't stop thinking about that precious little girl having to grow up without her mommy - it just rips my heart out whenever I think about it
