    Just came home after what was suppose to be a lovely thanksgiving dinner at my sister inlaws. Had a wee outburst. Suddenly (after two drinks, obviously not drunk) I started talking about some of the insensitive comments that I've heard from friends after my miscarriage. I don't know what came over me, I feel so embarassed now.

    My husband had left early from his sister's to go to work. And I just started ranting and raving about some friend's comments that were said to me months ago. I then noticed that my husband's family was just staring at me, thinking omg what do i say. I shut my big mouth in embarassment. How humiliating. I should be over it by now, obviously I'm not. I'm so embarrassed. :blush: Do I call and apologize or forget that it happened? Don't know what to do.

    Wow. Tough situation. It's hard to say what could fix it but I think if I was in that situation I'd probably apologize if it were me. For no other reason but to show that you aren't a complete lunatic. Sorry you had a rough day though. I don't know that the whole MC subject will ever get easier for any of us.

    Oh honey, firstly I think you should stop beating yourself up over it... it is quite plain that the pain is still there - I am still sensitive after my 1st mc 2 years ago so dont give yourself a hard time. You were with family and I am sure that they went away thinking that it was not like you to react that way and will understand. I agree with cleckner, if it were me, I would give SIL a ring just to say that I was sorry for outburst and dont know what came over me - I am sure she will understand.... give yourself a break though, you have been through enough and should not have to be worrying about other people. xx

    I'd just give your SIL a call, i'm sure they understand but probably didn't know what to say. I too had my mmc in may and If you are anything like me with a quickly approaching due date it's on my mind more each day right now, so don't be so hard on yourself and i'm sure they understand.

    Hope that they understand, and they really should understand all that you've been through.

    I'd probs just give em a call, just say something like "Sorry for that little outburst the other night, I just needed to get some things off my chest," or somesuch. I'm sure they'll understand. :)
