My baby is dead but at least...

... I don't have a side butt. I was in Ikea this morning (I know it's a prime location for the crying baby hit squad) but I wanted to pick up a couple things. D and I were standing in line and the woman in front of us with her roughly 4 year old boy had the worst butt ever. I mean really bad. She was not fat, maybe you could call her curvy at most, but her hips went straight out to the side while the back of her butt was completely flat. I know it was horribly mean to think about this poor girl's butt like this because she could easily be thinking awful things about how I look. (I definitely don't like the way my body looks these days as all my extra baby weight makes me look like I am still pregnant) Heck she could be a dead baby mama too for all I know. However, it did distract me from all the pregnant people and baby strollers while we waited in line so I'll go with it. It's a sign of how crappy life as a dead baby mama is when you have to stare strangers' butts to keep it together in public. Maybe next time there could be a cute college boy in front of us.

I've just spat my wine all over my keyboard because you made me laugh so much. I hope I don't have a side butt either. Then at least I could take some consolation in that!
Got to take our comforts where we can I think!

that's why I watch Maury Povich now. My baby may be dead but at least I don't have to do blood tests for 15 guys to find out who the father is!!

It feels so good to laugh. Thank you. This is why I go to that website People of Walmart. I still put my pants on before going to the store. I am doing okay.

"I still put my pants on..." priceless! I do not have a side but. Next time , try to see if they have front butt ;-)

Yeah Ikea is the place to really pummel yourself over the head with knocked up chicks and the results thereof.

Ikea is an assembly line of grief-traps, so I'm glad you had something to distract you - even if it wasn't a cute college boy. :))

Ha! My butt has definitely expanded over the past few years, but I, too, am free of side butt. I found my way here from Mel's Creme de la Creme list, and I'm really glad I did. Thanks for the laugh, for finding humor in dark places.

And thanks for sharing your story here. Thinking of you and your Reid, and sending love.

IKEA is one of the circles of hell for anyone suffering IF, and obviously loss too.
