Sad things I think when I see another pregnant woman

"She will probably get to have her baby for sure"


"Gee, I hope she gets her baby"

I guess it depends on my mood that day, which thought I end up having.

I pretty much always think "She'll get her baby.. I'm the only f-up person who doesn't".

It's sorta my woe is me syndrome. But that is with strangers. When friends/co-workers talk to me about their pregnancies and mention lil twinges they feel I freak out and tell them to go to the emergency room ASAP. I always imagine the worst. But when it is just strangers I assume that their pregnancy will be just perfect and mundane like every other person.

I'm just like you. I swing back and forth between the two, totally irrational extremes: Nothing could possibly go wrong with anyone else's pregnancy or something horrible is sure to go wrong with everyone else's pregnancy.

OMG I say and think those things too.

I cannot help myself, I always think something to myself about pregnant women when I see they make me sick or, I hope everything works out for you....because it didn't for us!

Then again, I stop myself sometimes and think what if she has had a pregnancy loss herself? How do I know she has not? What if she has a miracle baby in her belly?

Its hard for me to see pregnant women any way it goes I guess.
