Okay so I've been through a pretty traumatic loss before and had a heck of a time dealing with a friend who was a month ahead of me. I couldn't see her and when I did I would break down when I saw her growing belly. I didn't handle it very well So now this time around my sister in law is pregnant along with four other friends who I also work very closely with. We were all within 1-2 months of each other and joked about walking down the halls together as our pregnant posse. Now I don't know how I am going to deal with it and react when they start showing. I am really trying to be happy for them but when I look at them I know they still have their baby and I wouldn't wish anything bad to happen but it still just really bothers me. I have already told them that I may pull back once in awhile and to not take it personally, but it is just so hard. I've already been on the sidelines watching others have babies and now here I am again. I am really trying to just look at what I have to be thankful for today and not look to the future because I should see a new baby in it, and now I don't. Any suggestions to help me cope with the anticipated months ahead?
