Nicole, we lost two along the way. I won’t lie and say I know the depth of your pain. In my case, it was Missy that hurt the most. You feel it worse because you’re carrying the little human you hope will brighten your life someday.

When you’re hurting, it doesn’t help that much to hear that one in five pregnancies ends in a miscarriage. Friends mean well, and often the best they can do is hug you through it.

Thanks for sharing this. I applauded as much as Medium would let me. And I’m thankful you really aren’t a snob.
