So, on June 28th I was due with angel #1 that I lost in December. I just experienced my 2nd miscarriage 3 weeks ago. So it has been hard for me to see pregnant women and those with newborns/young babies. I usually try to avoid them or look away so that I don't have to deal with the flood of anxiety that takes over whenever I do. But yesterday, I was at a local gas station/convenience store and I was waiting for my drink to be done. I saw a woman holding a baby that looked to be about 2-3 months old. I looked away and tried not to notice her. When I got my drink and turned around, she was right there with the baby and I started walking out the door pretending I didn't see her. When I got to the door, something told me to turn around and go talk to her, so I did. I walked up to her and told her what a precious baby boy she had and asked how old he was. She said 11 weeks (so a little older than I thought). I told her that she was truly blessed with that precious baby, she thanked me and I walked away. it was extremely hard for me to do that. But maybe it's first step towards healing?
