Gotcha. I can't think of any outside thing that would have triggered this, though I appreciate the opportunity to consider it. And no, I haven't seen them do more than kiss briefly since Gia conceived, I really appreciate their circumspection. If it did all go down in the way I'm fearing, regardless of whether the tears were healing for me I think Gia would be utterly traumatized and ashamed if she happened to realize that her intimacy with Eric had made me cry (it's a small house and sound travels well). Feeling selfish is very painful for her.
Me, 30ish bi female, been doing solo poly for roughly 5 years. Gia, Clay, and Pike, my partners. Davis, ex/friend/"it's complicated." Eric, Gia's husband. Bee, Gia and Eric's toddler.
