I never really talk to this housekeeper, just occasionally say hi. Well, I noticed that she looked pg awhile back and then in the cafeteria I heard her saying something about needing to feed the baby. I asked her today when her due date was and she said April 15th, which was mine. I almost fainted, really, I got lightheaded. I congratulated her and we chatted some more. I just dont know how to feel. I keep thinking, why is there someone who I see everyday with the same due date I would've had? As if there would be a reason. I dont know if I feel sad or happy or what. I guess I feel confused and I feel like God has hurt my feelings. I know that sounds silly but that's the only way I can think to describe how I feel.

I totaly understand where you are coming from. What you are feeling is normal. It is just not fair and it should not be this way. I am sorry you have to go though this.

My last mc I wasn't very far along - so a lot of people had no idea what my DD was - I never brought it up - then about 3-4wks after my mc - another gal there annouces she's pg & due on my DD! I almost fell over right there. I did decided in that moment (after I had been agonizing whether to look for a different job) - I had to leave. I knew there was no way I was going to heal well being around someone daily that was going through every little thing I was supposed to be going through. It was all too much. ((((((BIG HUGS)))))) I know it isn't easy - I hope you find a way to be at peace with it.
