I am crushed. Rationally, I know that there’s nothing I could have done, but I can help thinking what if.

What if I had lost more weight, and kept off that which I had lost already?
What if I had gone in sooner instead of waiting thinking the nausea & vomiting would get better?
What if I had bonded with the baby? I was excited about the baby, but not the pregnancy.
What if I ate better in the beginning?
What if I had exercised like they say you should in the baby books?
What if I had slept more and stressed out over school less?
What if I didn’t take my Lamictal?
What if I didn’t take the Zofran?
What if I didn’t eat enough protein?
What if I hadn’t spent the entire pregnancy complaining about how miserable I was?
