I am 11 weeks pregnant with my rainbow baby, and for the most part I am happy and optimistic and I feel incredibly blessed, however sometimes the memories of my loss still haunt me and I am wondering how others have dealt with this.
Yesterday someone announced their pregnancy and it was like a punch in the gut. She is due around when I would have been due with my first pregnancy, and even though I am currently experiencing a happy and healthy pregnancy, I had all these unexpected feelings of hurt and jealousy that she has something that was taken away from me. My rational brain does not understand this. Why should this have any effect on me? Do I not remember that everything is ok now? I am focusing on the fact that this has nothing to do with me, and it is just the similar EDD that is making me react, but I am still caught off guard by my own reaction.
