people say the dumbest things about miscarriages. i think partially they don't understand what it's like and partially they just need to say something. i recently miscarried and i don't like a lot of the things my mom has been saying. i know she means well. [ Reply | More ]

i'm so sorry -- i also had two losses and i heard the same thing from someone. but then again, there is a little bit of truth to it -- my ditzy mother didn't realize she was pregnant until she was almost 20 wks with my sister... (she was spotting and thought it was her AF) [ Reply | More ]
