meal baby for miscarriage at 10 1/2 weeks?

I'm deciding on whether or not o sign up. A friend of mine (we actually share the same due month) just miscarried, baby stopped gorwing at 10 1/2 weeks. Her husband was out of town (he is military) and I beliefve is back now. She stayed with her parents for a few days, and is taking it easy. A friend of mine set up a meal baby for her (sign up to give dinners to families who have had a baby or who have suffered in some way or another.  I was about to sign up, and just remembered, the last time I signed up to bring a meal for a family, DH said "we can't afford this" I figure that its not that much more expensive, just making a little extra of what we would eat. Then I was thinking, well her DH is coming home soon and she has family, and I'm sure recovery will not be too bad. Anyone sugger a miscarriage at 10ish weeks? I have had miscarriages, but they were at 8 weeks and one at 6 weeks, so it only sloiwed me down the first few days. I don't kow, anyone have any opinions on this?

Well, emotional healing may be more difficult than physical. It sounds like she has some good support, but depending on who she is and how she is handling this, she may need another friend.

I had a mc at 13 weeks and it was pretty awful.  I went throught what felt like 3 hours of labor before the baby and placenta passed.  I felt pretty bad for 3-5 days after.

thanks, I am going to talk to DH about giving her a meal. I think its more emotional as well, I don't think she went to the hospital, but she had a miscarriage 8 onths I think befor ethis one, so I can only imagine.

I lost my most recent at 10 wks 5 days. It was hard. I had really strong contractions and birthed in the tub alone. Labor started around midnight and babyand placenta had passed by 6:30am when DH came in to shower for work. I was up and around that day/few days after, but it was tough. Bleeding lasted about a week. I didn't have much help during the day since DH still had to work so I was still cooking and cleaning lightly.

Emotionally, I still am grieving. Our first miscarriage we had a memorial, but the weather hasn't been great so we're waiting to do burial and remembrance.

Stillbirthday.com helped me a lot.
