I don't blame you at all! Is there any way you could take time off starting after Christmas Break, instead of waiting until baby comes?
My DH will be returning to full time teaching in January, which he is terribly nervous about so we don't talk about it. But we're really hoping that he'll have the hours to take parental leave right away when Hiccup is born
In a way I would feel guilty about "using the system" that way - he's been on leave since our 20 week u/s with Elli in January this year, was off completely for the remainder of the year then, returned half-time in September.
But then again it's not like we've been just relaxing or vacationing this whole time - it's been a heck of a year.

Of course, I'm excited to be pregnant now...and after all, if my poor baby lived, I wouldn't have been blessed with this new soul, but its all such a strange jumble of emotion. I haven't talked much about it, not even to DH. It's just...weird. But, my little niece is ADORABLE so even if she always reminds me of my little angel, it'll be okay. It's not like I'll be forgetting my angel baby anyway, right?

Oh absolutely I understand!

My due date is 5/29, we lost Jack on 5/18. I actually think I would like that. My DD's bday is 10/15 which is also pregnancy/infant loss remembrance day.
Elli's due date was hard to get through, although I was still at home dealing with helping my parents sort through all of my Grammie's things after her death - it was distracting, but not really in a good way. I wanted nothing more than to be with DH on that day, but it just didn't work out that way.
