I'm feeling sad today. I just heard that a friend of mine in the Junior League is having to end her five-month pregnancy next week. The baby has rare chromosomal abnormalities that mean it probably won't survive the pregnancy. I am absolutely heartbroken for her. She has been so supportive of me and helpful with lots of advice.
I have been criticized for not acting more "excited" about my own pregnancy. I am excited! But I guess part of me is scared too. I just know that there are so many things that can go wrong. I think I'm just trying to protect myself. Every week is a new milestone and I feel a little more confident that things are going to be okay. But then I hear about my friend...
I wish I knew what to say or do to help my friend. I will send flowers today and hope that it will mean something to know that I am thinking about her and her family.
*UPDATE* I just heard that my dear friend Amy's father died. Don't these things come in threes?
