It stung a little

I was talking to someone today about a mutual acquaintance who had a lot of deaths in their family the past year. Somehow the conversation turned to personal and I mentioned my pregnancy losses (should have known better since this person is not a mother - no offense to moms ttc here!) but the way she responded made me feel like my losses were not significant. I know that's the risk I take when I choose to open up and share but it still stings a little, you know?

I am choosing to move past it but will be careful around this person in the future.

Have you ever found yourself in a similar situation?

        I had a long time friend like that. I don't know for sure but I feel like she could not understand why she couldn't have children and I kept having one every other year. We haven't been in touch in years.

            That's awful. I'm sorry to here that. I do feel like people don't see it as a real reason to mourn. Like its not a real death. I don't understand that. When I miscarried I rushed to the hospital when I started bleeding and had an ultrasound done. I seen my baby and heard its heart beat. And by morning I had lost the baby. It was a big deal. And only few saw it that way with us. Most of those people were family or people I knew who had gone through it themselves.
