One of my friends, who had been trying to get pregnant about as long as Michael and I, found out today that her seven-week pregnancy is not viable. I'm not going to share any details of her situation here, but if you are a pray-er, please send up some prayers for her, and if you're not, please send some positive vibes her way. She needs them right now.
I've never miscarried myself, and this is the first of my real-life friends who has ever experienced this. When she told me about it today, I found myself completely unsure what to say. The best I could come up with was "I don't understand why God lets things like this happen," which didn't seem to upset her, but I wanted to offer more comfort.
Here's my question for you all: If you've experienced miscarriage, what were the most comforting things people said, and the least? Were there any occasions when people clearly weren't trying to be preachy but still managed to hurt you anyway? Please give me suggestions - I need help!
