There are pregnant people everywhere I go it seems. At work, its all I see. Two of the girls are as far along as I would have been and we used to talk about our babies together and how we were feeling and decorating the nursery, etc. Now, I just have to look at their happiness. One of them never said anything to me when I got back after 6 weeks maternity leave, but finds nothing wrong with rubbing her belly in my face. If she is going to do that, she can at least acknowledge my sorrow. An "I'm sorry for you loss" would do. But she just acts like it never happened. The other girls avoids me like the plague. She goes out of her way though. I was walking towards her and said hello and suddenly she remembered that she had to turn the other way. Then she was talking to a bunch of people and I sat nearby and she made them move so she didn't have to look at me. Come on! That is childish and just ridiculous. I know they may feel awkward, but you know what? Get over it. I had to go through a lot more than just feeling awkward.
