Lea - that's a great idea about reaching out to a few close friends - your partner is going through her own experience of your journey so may not be in the best position to give you the support you need. :)
My son is 3 and a few times now when I've been helping him get dressed, I can smell a strong ammonia smell from his penis. There are no obvious signs of an infection, he doesn't seem irritated and when I ask him if his penis hurts or feels itchy he says no.

Thanks everyone for your kind and supportive words. I find it really hard to share these emotions with people who don't know what it's like to lose a baby.
A few months ago I saw Kelly Clarkson being interviewed and announcing her p/g - she was still in the first trimester and said in a very casual way "Some women don't like to announce it too early b/c the chance of miscarriage is higher in the first trimester".
