All the nausea and misery (though still miserable) pales next to the news that a grad school classmate- not a close friend, more someone I know- has suddenly gone into labor at 6 months and her beautiful baby boy was stillborn. It is so terrible.

I wish... there were something I could do. I wish she and her husband were closer, so I could bring them a dinner every week, so I could at least be present for their grief. I wish this hadn't happened to them. I wish it never happened to anyone.


  1. My brother lost a pre-term baby. It was awful. There were complications with the pregnancy so it wasn't entirely unexpected, but still. I also found it incredibly difficult to know what to say or do. So sorry for your friend.

  2. Oh no. I'm so sorry.

    Oh no, that's terrible! So sorry.
