Three weeks ago, a friend sent me an email telling me that the baby of a friend of hers had died of SIDS. The next day, my mom called to tell me that a friend of mine from high school had been in a car accident. Her 3 yr old dd had been in the car with her and was unhurt, but my friend was killed. That night, totally out of the blue, I had this strong feeling that a friend of mine was going to have a miscarriage. She was about 6 weeks along, and had just found out she was pregnant. I could hear her name in my head, and the number three. I tried to push it out, but the feeling wouldn't go away.
Everything seemed to be going fine with her pregnancy, so I eventually dismissed it. Then, yesterday she went in for some tests and they discovered that the baby had died at around 6 weeks gestation, about the same time I had my weird "episode".
What's really freaking me out is that this isn't the first time this has happened to me. A few years ago, we were at my mom's for a holiday weekend and my sister in law's grandfather and grandmother were killed in a car wreck while we were there. The next day, I had this intense feeling that my own grandfather was going to die, and the number three was there as well. I pushed it out of my mind as just weirdness, but a week later my mother called to tell me he had passed.
I don't like this. What is it? Coincidence? The first time, I thought so. But now that it's happened again, I don't know what to make of it. I'm not "into" this kind of stuff. Thoughts?
