Lapped again

This weekend three years ago we went to a wedding of friends of ours in France. We conceived for the first time on that weekend away, but lost our baby at just over seven weeks. The newly married couple had their first baby just a few days shy of their first wedding anniversary. I've followed her progress on Facebook for the past two years. She's an absolute cutey, with big brown eyes just like her Dad.

This week I noticed a new photo on her Dad's profile. It was the birth tag from the hospital announcing the details of their new baby daughter. We didn't even know they were expecting again. I logged onto Facebook just now, and there are two new albums. One for Julie's second birthday and one for newborn Marie.

And here we still are, standing still while all around us friends' lives move on. I need a stiff drink.

What a horrible experience. I feel for you, I really do. For two years I couldn't even look at a facebook/bebo page. It drove me nuts.

Lots of stiff drinks drunk then too..

Gutting.

And one of the reasons I gave up facebook, you don't want to see those kinds of things out of the blue.

@ all - Yes it's shite. And what's worse, I feel like the biggest bitch for reacting like this.
