Quoting P Pickle Pants:" She PM'd me and apologized just now, btw. Apparently whoever PM'd her a list of things not to say to ... [snip!] ... if I believe anything that comes out of her mouth, so I simply told her not to contact me or I'd contact Mara about harassment."


I sent her a copy of the list.

Quoting ☮Sugar Magnolia:" Good plan. Maybe it's pessimistic of me, but I feel like there was an alternative motive. I just plain out do not like her. :?"

Quoting Sonia[MOBAS]:" I sent her a copy of the list."


Well, I'm glad that it seems to have gotten through to her when 100 other people telling her that what she said was wrong didn't. Maybe she'll refer back to that list in the future and realize that her beliefs can be hurtful.



I mean, God may have a reason for what has happened to me, but the Bible itself says that God doesn't punish people in this life (that's what Hell is for) and no matter WHAT the reason is, it doesn't make it any easier to cope with. And having a cause doesn't mean having a reason. Everything has a scientific cause (except miracles). Doesn't mean there's much of a good REASON for it! If my body is killing my babies, WHY did I get stuck with this disorder. WHY me? WHY can't they find the cure?



Yeah, there's no "Reason" for that, even if there is a cause. God may have a purpose for it, but it doesn't help. At all. There's no comfort in God's reasoning---since the Bible itself says that God's reasons are unknowable anyway!

I know what you're saying.



On a happier note, I told BD's mom your story, she's very involved in the church and does a lot of online church/prayer groups and such. I asked her if they could just say a prayer that this little one sticks and grows big and strong! So you, your family, and your bean have about 100ish people praying for you tonight or tomorrow :D:D:D

Thats awesome. My MIL put it in the book of prayers at her church anonymously too (she doesn't like airing private matters, so she put the story without the name). And once we announce I have 4-5 friends who are big in church prayer groups that will be adding to the numbers. Maybe if every Christian out there said a little prayer, God would be more likely to grant me little favors (ya know, about 9lbs or so "little" :D)

I swear its gonna take me a week to write it if I get that far. I'll be too damn emotional to function. With D I wrote it a few days later. With him I couldn't function, but I also couldn't sleep. If I get a newb I'll be sleeping like a baby with a baby at my breast and too busy enjoying every second and bawling with relieved and emotionally exhausted tears to write all night :D

If I don't, I'm sure I'll appoint a BG Delegate (my friend Jae, most likely, since she'll probably be the one holding keeping my son sane during delivery :D)

I hate the fact that there are ignorant people out there who can say the stupidest shit.

" now that im pregnant i understand how hard it must be to lose a baby":roll:

I've heard the "I know someone who lost...I understand" or "I lost a friend/parent/grandparent/cousin...I understand loss"
