How do I tell people?
It's been 3.5 weeks since our mc at 5.5 weeks. And I'm struggling here. We didnt tell more than a few people I was pregnant. So when we lost it, the responses I got were so flippant. Like it's not a big deal. So I'm going thru the hardest time of my life and can't turn to anyone but my husband. But why should we suffer in silence? I realized today that the reason I haven't shared my mc with hardly anyone is because I am afraid I'll keep getting flippant responses. I don't have the energy to stand up for myself. So it's easier to just say nothing and pretend everything's fine... But I don't want to do that anymore. I had a life inside me and it deserves to be recognized. How do I tell people that I lost a baby and it MATTERS?? The fact it was an early loss DOESNT play a factor in how we are allowed to grieve. But How do I respond to their insensitive responses? If I could prepare a sincere tactful response it would help me be more open about our loss. Any advice is appreciated.
