...and how I'd respond if I had a faster-thinking brain.
“You’ll have lots more babies!”
Firstly, unless God woke you one night to tell you this especially, you can’t possibly know. Secondly, considering I hate being pregnant and we don’t want a large family, I very much hope you’re wrong.
“I know a woman who had a D & C and was pregnant 3 weeks later!”
Good for her! I get that you’re telling me that you know of successful pregnancies after D & Cs, but the thought of falling pregnant again immediately is not at all appealing to me right now. I’d prefer to let my hormones resettle and recover emotionally from this round and enjoy some nausea-free catch-up sex for a little while before jumping in again, thanks.
“Were you stressed? Maybe you should have your spine checked.”Really? Are you implying that the miscarriage was my fault? Because I feel crap enough already without also blaming myself for possibly worrying too much or neglecting to see a chiropractor.
“At least you know you can have healthy babies.”
Uh... no, actually. I know I can have one healthy baby. Considering the pregnancies-gone-wrong now outnumber the one pregnancy that went right, I don’t know that I can have another healthy baby. That’s exactly my fear.
Thank you for letting me vent. I'll cheer up and move on soon.
