Talking About Miscarriages
Roberta Thomson

Hi Roberta,

I’m sorry for your loss. I lost my baby when I was 5-month pregnant. The doctor said that I had cervix incompetent. She was healthy though, but my cervix could not support her. I still can’t believe this happened to me, So sad. Four of my coworkers are healthily pregnant and that also makes me sad about myself. Until now, I always avoid being in a room with them. I’m afraid they will talk about their pregnancies and I will be sad. It’s not easy to move on and accept it, because people who never lost a baby will never understand the feeling. Be strong, Roberta.
