Feelin' Low

I just got e-mail confirmation from a good friend that she is miscarrying. She's nearly 10 weeks pregnant. Last night she called to say she had been spotting off and on since Friday. An ultrasound today validated her worst fears. She'd already asked me to be her doula. Now I will be doula-ing her through a loss. So sad. My heart is heavy for her.

I'm glad she has you. It will be hard for you, especially with a friend, but remember you have doula/birth junkie friends to vent to...this is hard for the doula, too.

Hugs, Hh

My heart is aching for her. That was me a little over three years ago... eleven weeks, and no heartbeat. Wish I'd had someone to lean on. I avoided ultrasounds with my next two pregnancies, because the technician was so incredibly cruel... Your friend is very lucky to have a good support system. I'll be thinking of her.
