Sadness

A friend of mine just texted me to tell me her coworker had a miscarriage. She had told me about the coworker’s pregnancy a few weeks ago when she discovered she was pregnant. I had met her coworker once, and she knew I was pregnant so I guess she asked my friend lots of questions about me, etc.

My friend texted me to let me know she may friend me on Facebook for some support and I told her to go right ahead.. Without any hesitation whatsoever. It’s strange, but even when I don’t know a person at all I feel compelled to help them in whatever way I can when it comes to this stuff. I just think back on when we lost our baby how alone I felt during times, and how it seemed like the world didn’t understand. I don’t want any woman to have to go through the pain alone if she wants or needs support..

It’s just so sad. I guess she was 12 weeks pregnant, but she had an ultrasound that showed the baby had died at 5 weeks. My heart goes out to her. I wish that no woman had to go through the pain of a miscarriage or losing a baby in any way, shape, or form.
