I think I forgot to mention that the first time I went to the support group in December there was a hugely pregnant woman there. I get why. It must be very worrisome and stressful to be pregnant after a loss.
The woman was there tonight too and SHE BROUGHT THE BABY. It was only 10 days old.
They were very polite about it and said if it bothered anyone the husband could take the baby into the hallway.
I didn’t want to be the one to say that the baby being there bothered me.
Halfway through the meeting, she breast fed it.
Right there in front of a bunch of grieving mothers.
The other three people there seemed like long time friends of this woman and
wanted to see and fuss over the baby.
THAT BABY BEING THERE BOTHERED ME!
