My sister (who is 8 weeks pregnant with her first) asked me to go to her first ultrasound with her next week.
Nooo.... I feel terrible, but I had to say no. I was between 6 and 9 weeks when we lost our last pregnancy 4 weeks ago. I can't imagine what would feel worse - seeing her appt if there was something wrong with, or seeing a perfectly healthy fetus. I just can't do it.
She was super understanding (my other sister, who is an ultrasound tech, is going to do it for her and my parents are going too) but I feel bad that I can't be happier for her and a little conflicted about her asking me. On one hand, I probably wouldn't have wanted to feel left out if everyone went and no one told me, and on the other, I've cried twice since she asked me. My husband thinks I should go and keeps saying, "Just be happy for her" and I am, I'm just not able to celebrate this particular milestone of her pregnancy.
I was just starting to think was over this, but apparently it will still hurt for a while. Blech...
