As we were leaving, both Jon and I were obviously in an an extremely awesome mood - due to Sweet Pea being healthy!!! As we were nearing the exit, there was this girl sitting in a chair crying. Her dh/df was next to her and some lady was consoling her.

Suddenly I didn't feel so well and felt so bad for the poor girl. Seeing her sitting there crying brought me back to last year after Jon and I got the horrible news that Katrina wouldn't survive. I remember we were sitting in the cafeteria waiting for our next appointment (which we knew we were going to get awful news) and I was just sobbing and sobbing with tons of people staring at me. I don't want to assume, but I think it's pretty obvious that this poor girl obviously got some sort of bad news today - whether she found out that her baby didn't make it or found out that her baby had something horribly wrong...and it broke my heart seeing her crying like that - I almost started crying myself. I wished I could have just gone up to her and given her a shoulder to cry on.

that brings back memory's for me....I remember coming out of my doctor's office the first time, and people staring at me as I cried...Then when I came back, the room was full of people, I felt like everyone was looking at me, but I couldn't stand the thought of looking at anyone else, I just stared ahead as I cried

I heard a woman sobbing in L&D last night (while I was there for severe bleeding ) and I just wanted to find her and hug her. I remember only too well in February when I cried on the same ward over Ethan, and I just wanted to tell the woman I heard that it will be alright, that she's strong enough to survive whatever made her sad.

Thank you Vicki for my awesome siggy!!

Ugh. Seeing someone else that fresh, it's like a punch in the gut. I remember when my coworker got horrible news about her baby I just cried and cried because I FELT it all so clearly.

That poor girl.

Makes me glad that there wasn't anyone in the hallways when I was wheelchaired down to my car after delivering Cora.

Although, there was one lady that I had chatted with in the waiting room of my OB's office, waiting for that terrible ultrasound, who passed me afterward at Walmart when I went to get my ambien prescription filled and tell Matt's manager he wouldn't be in the next day. I had chatted with her like nothing was wrong, etc, but she saw me walking down the aisle with tears in my face and I saw the question in her eyes. I turned a corner so she couldn't ask, I just didn't have it in me right then. I hated that feeling that everyone was staring at me.

Sometimes I wonder what they would say if you actually had said something. You don't want to intrude, but...what would I have said if and angel mommy had seen me and got the courage to give me a hug? I don't know.
Thanks to babydoll213 for the siggy! My kids' blog Cora's blog
