I just got a text from my Mother this morning (she lives over the other side of the world to me), my littlest sister lost her baby this morning. She was 11 weeks pregnant.<br><br>
I am just so devestated for her, and I know that it is going to be so hard for her when my baby is born (due in just 10 days time). She also lives on the otherside of the world from me, but in a different country from my Mum, so I can only imagine how lost and alone she is feeling right now.<br><br>
My heart is just breaking for her.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad">

I'm sorry. My first loss was at 11 weeks and my mom was out of town. It was hard but my DH and I grew so much closer from that experience.<br><br>
I pray for healing for your family and especially your sister right now.

So very sorry to hear about your sister's loss. Even tho your family is not all together, I am sure she will be comforted by phone calls and email and anything that anyone can offer. Family is family, even if they cant all be together and I am sure she can feel the love. She is in my thoughts. *hugs*

Hi Mama,<br><br>
DDC crashing from June. One of my bestfriends and I got pregnant around the same time a couple years ago. She had a beautiful little girl and I lost my baby in the early second trimester. One of the things I appreciated the most from my friend was that she stood by me - even though I know she must have felt awkward. She was there for me in every way she could be and as time went on, as I healed, I appreciated how she involved me in the pregnancy and later on, her daughter's life.<br><br>
I know your circumstance is different and complicated by distance but if your sister is anything like me, she'll appreciate you continuing to include her in your pregnancy, birth and little one's life. Losses like these are devastating but in my case, perhaps your sister's as well, it felt good to still be a part of my friend's life. Certainly, there were times when I got angry and resentful, when I asked the universe why she got to keep her baby and I had to lose mine but those feelings faded with time and the realization that the world simply doesn't work that way... In the end, it was healing for me to rejoice in her pregnancy and subsequent birth and reinforced my desire to try again. Now I'm 37 weeks pregnant with my own daughter and can't for our little girls to be friends.<br><br>
I wish you and your family all the best,<br>
Nicolle
