I had my first prenatal visit today. It was just a talk-through with the nurse to go over medical history, etc., and get blood drawn for random tests. I was feeling good about the whole thing until she says (without any preparation or segue), "Unfortunately, miscarriage is very common. About 1 in 4 pregnancies end in m/c. If it happens, it'll happen between weeks 6 and 8".
I just happen to be at the end of week 6. And she said it so offhand, like it was no big deal, and if it happens I should have expected it. What the hell?
So now I'm rethinking our decision to tell our close family members and so on, and I'm really pissed off. I mean, seriously, I know the stats, but there are ways of talking about this stuff to a hormonal ball of rage that don't totally freak her out.
So, my question for all of you is: what things have people said to you that were just unnecessary or mean or whatever?
And, of course, I shouldn't really be that worried, right? I mean, I know it can happen, but... ugh.
