7w1d

Two weeks until my next appointment.

I had dinner tonight with one of the friends whose showers I went shopping for the other day. She is one of my oldest friends -- we had 7th grade English together, almost 20 years ago now. I was scared it would be a bit painful to see her and face the very obvious reminder of where I should have been, but it wasn't bad at all. We talked a good deal about her pregnancy, and about my miscarriage. It actually felt good to be able to talk about it with someone in real life, especially someone who gets it. I have talked to a few friends, but most are unmarried and can't really imagine being in a position to want a child, so they have a tendency to spout off statistics and minimize the pain part. This friend didn't do that. It was a great reminder of why we have been friends for so long and how lucky I am to have her in my life. She's going to be a great mom.

That sounds like it was a good night and she sounds like a great friend. It's always nice to get someone who actually understands.
