I have a friend that just keeps saying the wrong thing to me when we talk about the miscarriage like "now you and your fiance will have time to focus on just the two of you." Yesterday was just the last straw! She called and when I told her the news about the latest doctor's appointment her response was "Well now you guys will have more time to yourselves. Kids really do change things. You aren't the center of attention anymore. It drives me crazy when M's kids (her fiance) are here. I just want to scream 'pay attention to me!' Enjoy just being engaged. You get a lot of attention when you are engaged." Can you believe that!?! I just want to scream at her that we want a child. That we want a baby of our own. This isn't an older stepchild situation. I want my own child to be the center of attention. How do I tell her that she is just saying the wrong thing without upsetting her or hurting her feelings? I don't want to stop talking to her completely, but if this continues I think that I might! Any suggestions on how to deal with this situation?
