my very close friend and I were due only 5 months apart and we were sooo excited.  We are neighbors too so we had lots of plans for our 2 little girls to grow up toghether.  My girl was 5 monts old when she finally went into labor and when she arrived at the hospital there was no heartbeat.  to say the least it has been devastating.  My girl is now 14 months old and my friend is trying to concieve her next baby and has had no luck in the last 3 months.  its becoming harder and harder on her and I am at a loss.  I know she loves my girls but she also can barley look at them somtimes.  I want to help her but dont know what to say, every time she gets her period she locks herself in the house and crys, does anyone else have experience with this?

My sister and brother in law lost their baby at 22 weeks... All I could do was tell them I loved them. 

I'm so sorry for you and your friend.

My df's ex had a friend who had a baby like 2 months before she did.  Well the friend and the baby got into a car accident and the baby died.  When the ex had HER baby she named him the SAME thing as the baby that died.  It was in honor of the child but I personally think that was just plain AWFUL of her.  So now everytime she gets together with that friend the poor woman has to see what HER child would be like if he were still alive and the same name. 
I can't imagine what your friend is going through BUT I AM sure that she needs you and your support.  I also think she probably needs some counseling but someone is going to have to help her get that.  She needs someone to listen to her cry and she needs a person to help her out.  Might as well be you! So do what you can for her!

my aunt and I were both pregnant at the same time 2 years ago, i had a miscarriage - she had her baby, a year ago we were both pregnant again, and this time WE BOTH HAD BABIES! I was so relieved not to lose this baby again, it is so awful to lose a baby..............sometimes i look at her oldest boy and think, hmmm i should have a babe that age now too, but i know it wasnt meant to be, i think its only something time and life experiences can heal.
