since becoming pregnant i've become more sensative to those stories as well ...
Omg yes :( here in California tthere's this story on the news about a little boy who was practically starved to death (don't look for it it ends tragically) and I just can't help and cry every time the stupid mom comes on tv. :( it's the cruelest of all crimes.
I can't even read/watch those stories any more, it's just horrific and heartbreaking to say the least.
It's sad and awful. My midwife and some other moms told me while pregnant it's good to avoid those types of stories if possible because when we're pregnant were so open, vulnerable, and sensitive. I was told to stay away from scary movies even... and Sci fi but I'm a nerd and I still watch sci-fi
Lol it makes sense though to protect yourself from those types of traumatizing things though.
