Awhile back I wrote about some of the funny things people say when they see a family with four young children, and how I was trying to come up with an arsenal of responses for when our newest pregnancy became obvious.

Then we lost our baby, Luke, halfway through the pregnancy.

We have since suffered a third miscarriage and I’ve become aware in a very personal way of how many women have suffered loss through miscarriage. If you’re one of them, I’m so sorry.

Every experience of miscarriage is different, and it was very comforting to me to write about our loss of Luke and to talk with other women who have walked through miscarriage. In case it’s somehow helpful to someone else, I’m posting the thoughts my husband and I had in the weeks after we said goodbye to our baby.
