Pity Party

My husband came home early this evening so I could go get a haircut, I am ashamed to say how long it has been since I have had one. While I was sitting there listening to the talk around me, there was a grandma talking about her 3 month old grandbaby.
That during the mother's last ultrasound the baby's brain didn't seem to be developing right and so all were concerned. The grandmother went on to say that they were afraid that the baby could have down syndrome or some other genetic problem. All I could do was sit there.... part of me wanted to just scream out I have a baby with down syndrome, don't make it sound so bad! But I just sat there and kind of had a small pity party but thankful that my baby is healthy and doing good. I just hate the "oh I am sorry" looks, people may not say it out loud but they still give the look. You would think after 20 months I would be over this....
