I lurked a little before I posted to see if I could find some help, but all I have to say is I have an even deeper understanding of the pain losing a child brings. I am so sorry for everyone who has had to go through this.
I was hoping to get some advice. My cousin, who I am close with, was pregnant with a little girl due in early October. She had already made the big announcement that she was expecting and making cute baby jokes and being very excited about her second child. Very sadly she miscarried at five months. The news was passed along quietly from her mother, giving me the impression that she didn't want to have to tell people herself, very understandable.
Happily I think she may be pregnant again, but is holding off announcing it for obvious reasons, and I'm sure to avoid awkward questions.
I am seeing her for the first time since her loss (we live several states apart) next week and I'm not sure the most appropriate way to handle it. Do I quietly tell her I was sorry to hear about her loss? Not mention it? Just ask how she's doing? I love her and I want to be supportive in whatever way I can, but I'm not sure how. I would appreciate any insight you could give, thank you.
