I just want to know if I am a terrible person or if others feel the same way.

When I am reading threads and someone mentions when baby gets here they will do x,y and z. I ALWAYS think "IF baby makes it here".

Am I terrible?

That's not terrible...that's surviving a loss!

There's a tv commercial that shows an HPT and the lady squeels "we're having a baby" and I always say (out loud) "maybe".

When you've been through what you have, it's difficult not to feel that way. We've been trained to think that once we hear a heart beat that we are past the 'danger period' and get to 12 weeks that we are getting a baby. Sadly, none of us will ever get to live in that fanasty land again.

I think the same way...I think that's a very normal thought.

I'm the same way too. I have a hard time not saying it sometimes. I still think "if" and "hopefully" in regards to my own pregnancies too.

yes! I struggle with not saying something. I have to fight the urge to slap and scream when I hear loss ignorance.

But when people plan things, I really want to say something. Plans change.

I made plans once upon a time and then my world shattered.

Same here. I remember being so annoyed at a girl I know when I saw her announcement on one of the social networks "baby A... Will be here next week". I saw it a few months after Eric was stillborn at 39 weeks, and i was so angry at her for being so confident and making statements like that.
