Those people sound like jerks, regardless of what you’ve gone through!  I am sorry.  =(

Well in all fairness it sounds like the first comment was coming from a place of caring about your feelings, just  . . . came out in a very wrong way. 

Sorry to hear about what you are going through!  I am a firm believer that people should mind their own business when it comes to the reproductive habits of other people.

@Havaneseluv:  Yes, some people are completely tactless but in general, I try to take it in a well meaning way. Most are not out to upset anyone…they just don’t get what they are saying because they have never lived through it. And the pregnant girl? She was probably just worried that it would hurt you….

because it does. I have miscarried a few times including my first pregnancy at almost 6 months. It did hurt to see friends with babies and others with families for a while. Although I did heal, even now that I have three children (teens), it still hurts to know that they had other brothers/sisters that never were. I just remind myself that they don’t have any idea how it feels and just don’t know what to say.
