So right after christmas I started talking to my dad again, after almost 19 years of not talking to him...Things have been going alright, he annoys me, but hey, it could be worse right?...So today I called to tell him i'm pregnant, and we got to talking about things and ultrasounds etc...He told me that my mom had an ultrasound with me, but my mom later told me she didn't lol...Any way, I was telling him how cool they are, and you can see so much...Then I told him that next time he comes over i'll show him Ella's ultrasound pictures so he can see how detailed they are now...Well that's what started it...He said it would "tweek him out" and he didn't want to see them...I got upset and then he said "I Don't even like open casket at a funeral"...I said these pictures aren't of her DEAD, she was ALIVE!!! I said "that's like saying you don't want to see a picture of your dad because he's now dead"...So it was a lot of back and forth...I don't think he ment to hurt my feelings, I think he's dumb and didn't know when to put his foot in his mouth, and didn't realize what he said was going to hurt me...He called me back to say he was sorry and to try to explain it to me, but i'm still pretty upset...She was my baby, she still is my baby, I love her and I like seeing pictures ultrasound and after she was born....Thanks for letting me vent...I'm not even sure i'll tell DH what happend.

Ugh, I'm sorry. I hate that some people get so wrapped up in the fact that the baby died, and don't see the baby that's there.

Thanks to babydoll213 for the siggy! My kids' blog Cora's blog

I'm so sorry he was so insensitive. People just don't get it, and it drives me nuts sometimes!

BTW, I didn't know you were pregnant- Congratulations!!!
