My best friend and I were elated to discover that we were pregnant at the same time. (She was only a few weeks behind me). This week, she lost the baby. She has one healthy little girl, the same age as my DD, but this is her third miscarriage. I don't know what to say or do because I've never been there before. I've been terribly sad and depressed over her loss, I can't imagine what her family is going through.
How can I be there for her without being a constant reminder of the baby she lost? Should I just not talk about pregnancy things around her at all and avoid posting pregnancy related things on Facebook? Will just me being around be hard for her? I want to listen and cry with her, but I don't know if she's up for that.
I don't want to stop celebrating my own baby, but I don't want to do anything that will make it harder for her. Any thoughts/advice? I feel so sad and clueless.
