i feel so bad for her. she was about 5 months pregnant and went in for a normal ultrasound (maybe to find out what she was having!) and they couldn’t find a heartbeat. she doesn’t have short term disability (she’s a teacher) so she had to go back to work today so she wouldn’t have money taken out of her paycheck. she goes friday to have the baby removed. so, so sad. this was her 4th pregnancy and she just told her kids recently. everyone was excited 🙁

That is so sad and awful. If I were her, I would talk to my principal or whichever administrator I was closest to and just explain. =(

That’s so sad. I am so sorry for her loss. This happened to two friends of mine a couple years back, it was heartbreaking.

A friend of mine recently went through this as well 🙁 I don’t know if your sister is religious or anything, but a pastor/priest/etc usually has some pearls of wisdom to help during this grieving process, and can usually point the mom to some helpful books or support groups as well. I’m so sorry

I am so sorry for your siter’s loss. I cant even imagine what she must be feeling right now. I dont know where you live or where your sister is, but if you are in the US, the school can give medical leave (she needs a doctors note for this) or even maybe family leave (when someone passes away) I wish your sister the best.

@amandasouthcarolina: Just speaking from experience I would urge you not to use the phrase ” have the baby removed”. At 5 months along she will be induced and have a normal labor and delivery. I’m sure you didn’t mean to be hurtful and perhaps your sister will not mind your verbage, but I can instantly see how saying it like that would be extremely painful. It makes it sound like a virus being removed instead of a much loved child being delivered into world, albiet alive or no. Just a suggestion, I don’t mean any ill will at ALL.

O no, this is just terrible. Absolutely heartbreaking. I am so sorry for you and your sister’s loss.
It sounds like the very worst thing in the world that she has to be at work, but perhaps…just perhaps it may keep her mind off of it or dull the pain a little for a few hours.
