I’m 27, childfree and perfectly happy with life with my husband, 3 dogs and great career. My best friend since I was 13 and her husband have been trying to conceive for 3 years now and I’ve been against it from the start. I couldn’t understand why she would ever possibly want to give up all the clubbing, dinner parties and vacations we go on be a slave to an infant.
All along I’ve hoped they don’t get pregnant. This girl is like a sister to me and has been through hell and back for me over the years. I wasn’t willing to give that up and completely avoided talking about anything pregnancy related. About 2 months ago she got pregnant and I got so upset having believed it would never happen and unable to stand by and watch her what I perceived to be ruining her life.
She miscarries yesterday and from what I’ve heard they’re taking it really hard. I want to go see her and tell her I’m sorry she’s hurting but deep down inside, I think this is for the best. She was pretty heart broken when I stormed out and I’m sorry things had to come to that. After everything we’ve been together I think I owe it to her to at least visit her. Would you have wanted to see me had you been in her position?
