I'm fine, but I really feel surrounded by baby negativity lately. A friend of mine (who had a m/c around the same time I had mine) just found out her pregnancy is a molar pregnancy and had a D+C yesterday. She is totally devastated.
Another friend of mine was pregnant, due in September, just had her baby yesterday (by c/s) - he was about half the size he should have been, and I guess at this point, it was better for him to be out than in. He is extremely premature (I don't know exactly how many weeks, but less than 30), and was 1 lb 2 oz at birth. This was her first pregnancy. I just want to cry, thinking about his chances of survival when he's that little.
Lots of heaviness in my life right now. I'm trying really hard not to internalize any of it.
