This Luv's commercial. Don't watch it if you've ever lost a baby...because if you haven't seen it yet, it will SURELY piss you off.
"By their second kid, every Mom is an expert!"
Clearly, no one involved in the making of this commercial ever lost their first baby. I know I'm probably overly sensitive about this, but seriously. I saw this commercial during Project Runway last night, and I wanted to throw my shoe at the TV. Yeah. I'll totally be an expert if I have a second child!
Oh wait. NO I WON'T! Cause I never went through any of that with my first child.
Watching this...already gives me heebs, and I'm not even pregnant with a second child. It brings about the complexity of everything after losing your firstborn. There are people who don't know you who will tell you that your next child is your first child. And then there will be explaining. And complex titles. "Is this your first?" someone might ask at the grocery store. And then I'll have to choose my answers wisely. Would I want to get into a conversation with that person? Or just lie to keep it simple? But Luke was REAL. Why would I lie? He was a baby. A 9 pound, 10 ounce full-term baby. Without a heartbeat.
Fuck this. Hearing those words on this commercial last night was like being stabbed in the heart.
I will have no idea what I'm doing...with my SECOND child. And that happens, Luv's. And I'm not discounting my first child just because he was born without a heartbeat. Sorry.
Part of me wants to leave a nasty comment on their Youtube page, but part of me doesn't feel like getting flamed by all the idiots that will probably reply to me...
