I am feeling a little down today, and that life can be so unfair. My sister in law recently announced her second pregnancy. After a miscarriage with the first, she wanted to wait and ended up announcing at ten weeks.  I was really excited because she was only two weeks behind me. Well, I just learned that she miscarried on Friday at thirteen weeks (thereabout). I am just so devastated for them. It's hard for me right now...pretty much my DH decide to get pregnant and we do. I can't explain how it feels to have someone who is like a little sister struggling so hard and have it come so easy for me. They are trying so hard. I had just talked to her last week and she was extremely excited about her first ultrasound (it was supposed to be today). **SIGH** I have been praying about it and I am having a hard time wrapping my head around why God would take two babies from anyone...I know He has a reason...I just wish I KNEW it.

God ALWAYS has a plan, even if it is unclear to us at this moment. In time it will reveal itself!  I sw a message on a church marquee this week that said "Sometimes God's answer to our prayers is JUST WAIT"

It could've been something as simple as not enough hormones being produced naturally. But usually a miscarriage occurs during the first twelve weeks. It's not uncommon. Don't wrack your head trying to figure out why. Not everything is part of some grand scheme. Some things just happen. it's life. Anyway, just be as supportive as you can. And I would suggest the fertility clinic to make sure her body is capable of supporting a pregnancy and that there is nothing physically wrong preventing it. also a hormone level check.

God has a reason, you have to remember that. My cousin kept losing her babies and she never really understood why. But then she & her husband started having problems and she realized the timing just wasnt right. It was kind of hard because here I was, I had already had my Elijah not even trying to get pregnant, and she wanted a baby so bad. But you read my testimony... God planned this all out. its all leading me back to him! Get involved in a church Mama!
