Beware: commercial, kay jewelers

DH and I were watching tv last night, our Ghost Huners addiction. We usually dvr it, and fast forward through commercials.

This time we watched it live, and couldnt fast forward... I had to post this to warn all of you, since we all have been talking about the holidays and dealing with emotions... I couldnt let my friends here feel the same pain I did.

Here comes the commercial:

A mother in a chair holding an infant, with a christmas tree behind her. Her husband comes out and she says "what are you doing? Its 2am" He says "Its 2am christmas morning, I couldnt wait, its our first christmas as a family" and he lites the tree. He then gives his wife a box with diamond earrings. it ends by him holding the baby, and says "do you think she'll remember this christmas" She responds "I know I will".

OMG!!! can you say tears, bad night of sleep and emotions raw as ever.

DH turns to me a minute after the commercial is over "Do you want lemon to put on that cut?" being sarcastic of course, I replied "Yeah, that was just painful"

--- So please walk away from the tv, change the channel or fast forward through this commercial.

I cried myself to sleep, I cried in the shower, I cried on the phone with DH this morning as I parked my car for work....

I am a complete mess. I am never watching live tv with commercials until christmas is over. I was doing so well until last night, I dont know who to turn to, to talk to. Many people in my life dont understand. I am sorry for rambling, but you guys are all I have. You all understand so well.

I hope you avoid this pain that I felt last night... hugs, everyone.

I have seen that commercial too except I left the room when it was on. It broke my heart. I try not to watch commercials live because of that reason. I either leave the room when commercials come on or I DVR and fast forward through them.

You are right. People other than us do not understand. I had to email ivillage about the ad that kept popping up for their newsletter. It had a picture of a mother and baby. The director responded back to me and said that she was very sorry and it should have never been on this site or any other TTC or infertility groups. She was going to get in touch with technical services. I have not seen that ad since. I don't know if anyone else was bothered by it.

There is another one too. I am trying to remember what it is for. It shows people holding their breath ( like a girl swimming) and it shows a women giving birth. There is a pause before the infant cries and you see at first they think something is wrong. It always gets to me.


Ugh. My little guy would have been really into this Christmas. It is so hard. Last year he would have just been a couple months old but this year I can just imagine his face lighting up. My life has been broken into 2 parts now. Life before Levon and life after Levon. I am never to be the same again but I hope I am happy again someday and although I will never forget him and can't replace him, I hope to hold my rainbow baby someday healthy in my arms

I have seen that commercial twice. The first time I looked away in disgust, this evening I was at a restaurant so couldn't hear what they were saying but watched it and just thought to myself "so sad". It is so sad that we have to endure this pain and with our baby radars on, so sad that everything seems to be about babies, families and happy holidays. I have never been more ready for the holiday season to be over. I just hope that one day I can look forward to them again and hopefully with a healthy child.
I am so sorry, and so sad, that we all have found ourselves here.
Thank you all for sharing your thoughts as you help me cope with mine.

OMG!!! I saw that commercial for the first time last night. I didn't even need to hear anything I just started making that face...you know the one right before you start crying. It was one of the saddest commercials I have seen in a while.


Here's the kind of funny part. I never dream about babies, at least not of myself having a baby, and I never dream about my little Caleb. I think I've had one baby dream in the last 14 months. But last night I had a dream about both. I was remembering the details on the way to work this morning and almost started crying. I wonder if that commercial had anything to do with it.
