How the Life Goes On

In the days that followed my miscarriage, I found that my emotional reaction was muted.  For a month I had suspected that a miscarriage was imminent, and this helped mitigate the shock when it actually happened.  And although I know many women don’t feel this way, I did find some small comfort in the idea [...]


Stressing about stress

One of the first things people say when they hear that someone has been trying to get pregnant for a while without success is to just relax.
