czei: LazyMedia: QueenMamaBee: czei: About 1 in 160 pregnancies end in stillbirth.  Not that her emotional loss wasn't difficult, but I can't figure out why she wouldn't keep the kid and try to get pregnant again at some point in the future.

I'm assuming he meant crib? Yeah, sure, keep a crib around to remind you of your loss; that's a great emotional plan, and think of the money you'll save on buying a new one. Jesus, how cheap are you?

The majority of pregnancies do not come to term, so if you're going to get rid of the baby equipment after each one its going to get mighty expensive.  I think in the long run it would be more comforting to understand that losing a baby like this is part of the natural process and there will be other opportunities, very soon, to try again.


If you don't intuitively understand the difference in emotional impact of a first-trimester miscarriage and a still birth, there's no hope for you.

cryinoutloud: This is why I took my babbies home to absolutely nothing. Bought some diapers on the way.

/But somebody gave us a crib and she died anyway. Bastards.
//Second kid never slept in crib. I gave it away.


Wow...seems strange to just give away the second kid.  There's this thing called birth control is you didn't want to have a second one.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHA, I GET IT!! It's dusty because you're all teared up, right??? That is the absolute height of humor right there boy and every time I read that line on Fark (which is basically every day) I laugh even harder!
I can't wait until someone posts that line again, oh man, finally a reason to live!

Part of me thinks this is really sweet and part of me thinks, this poor woman finally gets to the point where she can move on emotionally - and some guy painstakingly handcrafts this metaphoric scab picker to reopen that old emotional wound?
