I am pregnant again. I mentioned it to a coworker who happened to tell most everyone at work. Two of my coworkers said that I shouldn't have told anyone so soon, especially since I miscarried my other pregnancy. Thinking about it, though, it makes me angry. Am I supposed to be ashamed for miscarrying? If I miscarry this one, does that mean that they think that I am a failure? Why do people want me to hide the fact that I am pregnant just in case I miscarry? I shouldn't have to be ashamed for having one miscarriage and I shouldn't have to be ashamed if I have others in the future. This is something that we shouldn't be ashamed of. Perhaps if so many people didn't hide it, other women wouldn't feel ashamed and maybe more people would be more sympathetic when someone close to them miscarries. Do others agree with me? Am I overreacting?
