hello there,
my name is jodi and i too lost my only son born too soon on May 18 so it has only been 12 long days for me. And i would have to say what you are feeling is completely normal i am still not able to be happy around someone that is expecting as i feel it isnt fair that they are and i am not anymore.
I would say from talking to other people that have been through this it is completely normal to feel that way and i am still waiting for it to get easier too..
I hope you find it easier soon.

I would say yes to it being normal. I'm going through a miscarriage as I type this and it is very mentally scarring. My mom took me out to the beach today because I usually find it therapeutic, but when I saw all the happy families with babies, I had to leave. I felt resentment towards their happiness. I really do hope you feel better soon.

im so sorry for your loss and i can soo relate to how your feeling. ive had 3 miscarriages within the last year #1march 7, 2011, #2 Oct 26, 2011, and #3 Febuary 22, 2012. Its been about 5 months since the last one but it still hard for me to be around it. A giirl i work with is 5months pregnant right now, and although i am happy for her, in the back of my mind im still so very upset, and think why not me. My sister in-law had her baby in may which was when i was due with #2 and although i did go see her in the hospital to support my husband for being an uncle for the first time, deep down at that very moment i hated her. just becaus it was her and not me. i feel awful for sayin it but its how i felt at the time and now it doesnt hurt as bad. it goes away after time, its completely normal, and i pray for everyone and hope all goes well in the future when ttc again.

I am so sorry for your loss and totally understand how you feel. I had my mc back in January 17, 2012 and it still can be tuff to be around or see pregnant women. i would feel exactly how you described. Then I began to notice everyone around me was preggo. its has gotten a lil easier to deal with as time has gone by but i still have my moments to were i break down and cry. So you're not alone on this one. wish you all the best n just try and keep your head up it gets easier to cope w:-):-)
