I am sorry for her loss.  I wish her a speedy recovery and hopefully soon enough she will have a BFP and a very sticky baby to share with you and the family.

I’ll keep her in my prayers. I hope she can just recover very soon. I know how you must be feeling I know a friend who was in the same exact situation as you are. Just try to be around her with her she will need suppot. Try to get her out of the mood by doing something together. Good luck

As someone who also had a lot of pregnancies announced right around the time I had my MC, I want to thank you for being so sensitive towards your cousin.  Obviously it’s different when people don’t know that you were even pregnant, but it totally hurts to hear about everyone elses good news when you’ve got received the worst news.

eecuadrado:  I am so sorry for your family. I had something similar happen. My due date was March 30 and when I was about 20 weeks pregnant, my sister announced that she was pregnant and due June 30. Exactly 3 months after me. Our whole family was excited. She is quite a bit older than me, so she had genetic testing done and found out that she was having a girl just like me and that she was perfect. We celebrated at christmas time and she did a lovely announcement on facebook. Then on New Years, at about 14 weeks, she went into labor. She went to the hospital, but there was nothing they could do to stop it because she was already too far along. The baby ended up being stillborn. It was devistating. I wanted to keep my distance, but my sister wanted to be there for me and would always call and ask how I was doing. When Dirty Delete was born it was really hard on my sister. She texted me and told me she loved me and Dirty Delete, but was having a hard time and wasn’t ready to meet her yet. Dirty Delete was about 2.5 weeks when my sister felt strong enough to come and meet her. She held her and had a good cry. It was tough for her and will continue to be tough for her, but she told me she feels so lucky to have a neice to love and spoil and wants to be involved in her life as much as possible.  

Of course every person and every situation is different. My advice to you is to follow your cousin’s lead on this. Act as normal as possible while being respectful. If she asks about the baby, tell her. If she doesn’t talk to you for a while, give her the space she needs. I included my sister in all of the text messages I sent to my sibling updating them about my labor and announcing her birth. However, I didn’t text my sister directly to ask if she was okay or ask why she wasn’t coming to the hospital to see me. I let her come to me. Your cousin will do what she needs to do to get through this and the best thing you can do is support her no matter what.
