Another difficult weekend

I had a miscarriage a month ago (April 10) at 5 weeks. Since then, the days and weeks have seemed to get a little bit better. I've heard form others on this board that holidays are often harder and I definitely experienced that on Easter. But last weekened was almost tougher. I went out to dinner with a group of girlfriends from high school to find out that 3 of them are pregnant and two are due right around the same day that I would've been. That was one of the toughest nights I've had in awhile, and since I haven't told any of them about my miscarriage, I just had to suffer in silence.

I don't post on here often, but just wanted to offer you hugs. There was a time when I burst into uncontrollable tears every time I heard that yet another friend was expecting. It's so painful. I'm sorry.

I think we have all been there and it isn't fair. You will find that different things trigger your feelings (holiday's, baby showers, finding out that people are pregnant, etc). Mother's Day was a little bitter sweet for me since I should be a Mom and be celebrating. I had fun with my family but......

Hugs........

Finding out about other people being pregnant was ALWAYS the hardest for me. Harder than holidays or due dates or anything else. I think it's because it's easier to deal with misery if you know you're not alone but when you're forced to watch the happiness of others all the while knowing that may never happen for you, it's sometimes more than one can bear. Five years later it still stings although not as badly as it used to :( I'm sorry, and I hope the sting lessens for you sooner rather than later.
