Pregnancy jokes are quite common during April Fool’s Day. We bet you your social media news feed will be filled with them this April 1. A lot of people find faking a pregnancy to their friends fun but behind that practical joke is a heartbreak experienced by moms who may have miscarried or have trouble conceiving.
One mother decided to share her pregnancy loss story on Facebook, which has gone viral. Coincidentally, the tragedy happened days before April 1 and her story serves as a wake-up call that fake pregnancy jokes are actually hurtful – and not funny.
Kayla Lee Welch miscarried days before April Fool’s Day.
She starts her post by writing.
“This is why your April fools joke isn’t funny. This is why it’s not funny to lie and joke about being pregnant. This is what it looks like to have a miscarriage.”
Welch posted photos of herself crying and holding up a pregnancy test.
It is apparent that Kayla is devastated.
Kayla explained that she had spotting the week before finding out and thought that it was normal.
She thought she had experienced spotting with her first pregnancy and didn’t worry about it with the second one. But she was wrong.
“I avoid laying down to go to sleep because as soon as I hit the bed I’m alone with all of my thoughts. My brain has finally stopped distracting itself from the one thing breaking my heart. And all I can do is cry.”
Kayla’s eyes had gone swollen and dark from all the crying that she did. It was as if she cried so much that it came to a point she went numb and can’t feel anything anymore.
“My eyes are so swollen and dark it looks like more than just my heart is broken. Crying so hard that you go numb and feel nothing anymore.”
There’s nothing like the pain that comes with grief from losing someone you never even met.
“Trying to be happy that your baby never knew anything other than love. And missing someone so dearly that you never even met. It’s a pain no one can describe. Because how can you properly grieve someone you never got to meet?”
And Kayla’s final words will serve as a reminder to be careful about making practical jokes, especially ones that involve pregnancy.
“Please think twice before you post that April fools joke. Because what’s funny for a second in your eyes crushes someone else’s heart for eternity.”
