i lost a baby 4 weeks ago , when i was 16 weeks pregnant. The baby was diagnosed with Down's Syndrome at 13 weeks and died somewhere between 14.5 - 15.5 weeks. He would have been my 3rd child.
Now i'm getting tired of poeple's attitude toward me when i talk about trying again. People seem surprised...but not 'good' surpriesed but more like 'oh dear?' surprised. Or say things like 'perhaps that's a sign you should stop at 2 kids' or 'that's your body's way of telling you that you're only meant to have two.." ; all that sort of stuff. I even had an aunt who suggested i get my tubes tied while i was getting the D&C.
i have to remind myself that these people are speaking with uneducated opinions...but it does get to me. i start thinking ...maybe i should stop, maybe the rest of my children will have a 'syndrome', maybe they're right...... . And i'm worried that i will lose my confidence somewhere along the line.
Has anyone else experienced this???
