I went to a baby shower this morning (the first of the year, with many to follow, I am sure) and there were about 30 of us. A friend came, and then left within minutes. She miscarried a couple of weeks ago --it took them 5 years just to try to get pregnant --and so I know why she left. Why would she want to be around people talking about babies? And half of the guests were pregnant. And a few of us (including me) are trying to get pregnant. How could she handle that type of situation? I was so proud of her for even coming....it took courage to support a friend when she was so upset herself. I just wish I could have talked to her before she had slipped out unnoticed.
