    Babysitting.

    My friend's daughter had a baby. She is 16. I'd been asked to watch her, because her mother knows I'll make her care for her own child. I won't just take it home with me, and leave her to cry and watch TV [I suspect she has some postpartum depression, she's not the type of kid to...

    I had an ultrasound at 8 weeks.

    Everything was fine, saw the heartbeat and everything. A week later, the heart stopped and it stopped growing. My body still thought it was pregnant. At 12 weeks and 2 days, I started bleeding. I had lost the baby, but didn't know it. After a horrendous trip of the hospital and...

    Commonplace Occurrences

    Father's Loss
