My mom has lost two babies. One after birth and one miscarriage. It really shows that she "gets it" from time to time.

On Gwen's EDD anniversary we were at her house (picking her up to go to a comedy show) and somehow she and a family friend got to talking about a young child. (I don't remember the actual convo but it wasn't about Des.) After a few minutes, I butted in with "I hate to do this, but can we talk about something other than babies today." My mom replied with "Absolutely, I'm sorry." and that was that.

Just wanted to share because I often advise you ladies to speak up when people are having a conversation that is painful to you. I will admit, it doesn't always turn out as well depending on the person, but you won't know until you say something.

It took me a long time to learn, but I started to say " You know this line of conversation is just not helpful today"
