“At least you didn’t miscarry further into the pregnancy”


Quite frankly I’m tired of hearing this from the (majority out of a handful) women I have confided in... when I tell them I experienced a miscarriage- “at least you it was early in the pregnancy” Like as soon as they hear how far along I was it is suddenly like it isn’t considered a loss since it was in the first trimester. Women if another woman confides in you that they miscarried- please don’t react this way. You may not know how long they have been trying to get pregnant or all the effort they have gone to in order to be pregnant only to have it end in a loss. The only correct reaction should be some variation of “I’m sorry for your loss.” Please resist any impulse to minimize what someone else is experiencing! Let’s be supportive of one another y’all!!
