I am so sad for my friend, who is devastated. She has been trying to conceive a child with her husband for a while now (they have one child already), and for several reasons, her pregnancies are high-risk.
She went through some fertility treatments, and nothing. Then, out of the blue, she found out she was pregnant from intercourse with her husband...yeah!
She was about 10 weeks into the pregnancy (almost at the "safer" 12 week mark), and her last OB/GYN appointment, they no longer heard the heartbeat.
Words can not express the devastation and shock.
As a friend, what in the world can I do for her and her family? Of course, my instinct is to be there for her when she wants to talk...which she does not want to at this time (with me; she has closer friends, her family, etc...a good support system). I'm a friend who can offer to babysit her other child (who is the same age as mine), bring her dinner one night.
Is there anything else I can do?
