I've seriously been crying for 2 weeks ever since we found out our dog (who I love like a family member) has cancer and today we had to put her down. It was the hardest thing I think I've ever done, which I guess I should frankly be grateful for, but I feel like I have been so sad especially in the past few days and crying a lot and I worry that the baby is feeling it too. I really don't want him to have to experience grief before he is even born! The other day my DS said to me "mommy, the baby is crying in your tummy." Who knows, he may have just been talking the nonsense that 3 year old's do sometimes, but it made me start wondering if the baby is picking up on or feeling the same emotions that I am. I think that now that this dog ordeal is over, I will start to feel better. I think having it hanging over my head for 2 weeks was really taking a toll and the anticipation of having to put her down is worse than actually not having her here anymore. Although I really miss her already.
