Okay, I'm annoyed with the mobile site. It didn't post my reply! Ughhhh.
Okay, so 24 weeks is the longest my other "viable" pregnancy was that ended in a horrible, blood bath of a miscarriage. Because of that one, his mom thinks us telling anyone prior to that time frame is "tacky" due to my history. I don't care, I really don't. But I do get irked when I hear the commentary. As far as not thinking of my first son as her grandson because of his passing, it's typical her. When her husband died, she went back to her previous marriage's last name instead of her maiden name. Now that is messed up. She did ask if he and I could stop trying after this one. HAHAHA! I want a big family. Whether she supports that or not is NOT my problem.
Yesterday when I was with my friend and her 3 year old (who has the most AMAZING personality in the world, I swear), someone asked her why she didn't give her daughter a sibling yet. That waiting so long gives her an "unfulfilled childhood" and all of this other nonsense. I chimed in because my friend was getting upset and said, "She just went through a painful divorce from her daughter's father, and he's bringing her to court every 2 weeks to try to fight the custody agreement. Do you really think she should have had another child with that man? That's what I thought." I love making people's jaws drop.
I agree mamabear. Every life we get to bring into this world is blessed. Yes, there are a lot of people who have kids because of the government benefits or other selfish reasons. But than we have forums filled with moms like us who just want to have families of many sizes, and help mold new lives for the future.
