i feel terrible, she asked me Wednesday, "is it normal for a woman to have her period when she is pregnant? i think that i'm bleeding."

she immediately left our chat, and just now, she logged in to tell me she miscarried... i don't even know what to say...

  • There is nothing that you can say to make it better. All you can really do is be there for her listen to her, maybe send some flowers or a card. Just tell her that you are there for her if she needs you or needs to talk.

  • Tell her how sorry you are for her awful loss. But, do not say anything like "you'll be fine next time". Those comments are not helpful.
