What NOT to Say {Capture Your Grief Day 6}

I have a disclaimer for today's post. **If you said any of these things to B or me after our miscarriages do not beat yourself up about it. We know that sometimes it is hard to know what to say if you have not been in a similar situation.**

Reading through some of the things people have said to others suffering from infant and pregnancy loss on the Capture Your Grief FB page has made my jaw drop. We have been lucky to have loving & caring friends and family that are smart enough to not say anything extreme to us.

My one suggestion is to say something! Sometimes it is worse to say nothing then saying the above things. Some people might not want to talk about it very much, but just asking how they are doing or if they need anything is better then not even bringing it up. I know sometimes it might feel like the elephant in the room no one wants to talk about, but it is better to say something then nothing!

Thanks for all the encouraging words you have sent me over the past week, it truly does help.

Til' next time,
