  • Just try conforting her and let her know that if God wants her to have a baby he will make it happen. Sometimes after a miscarriage and you have to have a D&C its hard to conceive. Good luck to her.

  • Other than being a supportive friend, there isn't much you can do.

  • Blighted ovum. My friend went through this, too. Just be there to talk if she needs it.

  • I am sorry to hear about your friend having trouble TTC. I don't think there is much you can say to help her. Listening is good though and I implore you to not tell her that if God wants her to have a baby he will make it happen. It sets her up to think she is doing something wrong or would be a bad mother etc. I also would stay away from telling her to be thankful she has one etc. I would also not ask her questions about fertility treatments or ask her if she has taken a pregnancy test lately etc. She will mention those details if she wants too. Here is a link to a blog that has some suggestions about the topic http://blogs.fertilitycommunity.com/weblogs/7-things-to-say-7-things-not-to-say
